Eragon - Christopher Paolini I wanted to love it. It has dragons, heroes, villains, elves, battles between good and evil -- how could you not devour an epic tale like this? The excessive use of commas and frequent over description knocked a few stars off. It could have used another round of editing, or polishing. I'm hoping that the author has matured in his writing skills by the next installment, otherwise it will be too painful to continue.
