Rider dies, dragon dies. Said in the first book, changed in the second because CP didn’t bother to re read Eragon before starting Brisinger.
I have no problem with a guy writing a book and making money from it, good for him.
What I don’t like is my intelligence insulted when I find out half of what I’m reading isn’t even originally from the Author. And no, saying he was being inspired by other authors is not an excuse.
If you’re gonna ‘borrow’ stuff from other authors DON ’T MAKE IT BLOODY OBVIOUS . Example, don’t change one fricking letter in a name you have taken from another book or spell it backwards instead. It pisses people off when they notice these mistakes and that’s when these websites start cropping up.
FYI - The dude STARTED writing at 15 he didn’t finish it until he was 19 – he had a good 4-5 years to improve, go back through his book and fix what was blatantly bad writing. That is what good authors do; they continue to go through their work to make it the best they can. Eragon is an example of lazy, incoherent writing.
