Transcript of Eragon

Eragon By: Christopher Paolini Summary Eragon finds an egg which he thinks is a rock. The egg hatches and a dragon is born. Named Saphira. Razac, who are evil human-like creatures, come to Carvahall. Eragon, Brom and Saphira flee because Sloan betrays them. Razac kill Eragon's uncle, Garrow. Brom starts to train Eragon in combat. Eragon discovers magic. Eragon decides to pursue the Razac. Eragon, Saphira, and Brom meet up with Brom's old friend, Jeod, in Tierm. Jeod helps them find the Razac using shipping records. Razac are somewhere near the city of Dras Leona. Eragon, Saphira and Brom travel to Dras Leona to try and figure out where the Razac are. Eragon starts having dreams of a strange woman in a cell who he feels is important and must be rescued. Eragon is ambushed in Dras Leona by the Razac. While fleeing, all three members of the group are capture and brought to the Razac's lair. Eragon and Saphira are rescued by a boy named Murtagh who is also pursuing the Razac. However, Brom is injured. Spoilers! The group, along with Murtagh, travel to the Varden. The Varden is a group of people who are fighting against the evil king, Galbatorix. More spoilers! The book's ending, which I'm going to keep a secret. Eragon is capture by a group of Urgals. Brought to prison. A Shade, which is an evil demon is there. They fight. Eragon escapes with the help of Murtagh along with the woman he saw in her dreams, for she happened to be in that prison as well. The woman is very important but I can't tell why. Her name is Arya. Characters Eragon - An "adopted" farmer boy from Carvahall. Becomes a dragon rider.
Saphira - Eragon's dragon. Kind of an abrasive personality. Brom - Supposedly a story teller. Has many secrets. Murtagh - A boy who has run away from the empire. Decides to help Eragon. Like Brom, he has many secrets. Durza - The evil shade I was talking about. Wants to kill Eragon, serves Galbatorix. Galbatorix - The evil king who rules almost all of Alagaesia, the land in which this story takes place. Killed almost all of the riders and dragons. He is a rider himself. Quotes "Then as power rushed through his veins, Galbatorix anointed himself king over all of Alagaesia. And from that day he has ruled us." "Eragon recoiled in shock. Standing in front of him, licking of the membrane that encased it, was a dragon." "Beware of losing your way, for you are one of the few who are truly free to choose their own fate." Theme The theme of Eragon would be prepared for what lies ahead. You never know what will be out there. Eragon was just a farmer boy. But when Saphira hatched, his whole world changed. He needed to prepare himself for the dangers of his journey and learn how to survive in the unknown world. Figurative Language Foreshadowing - In the beginning of the novel, there is a prologue. I can't tell you much about it because it would ruin the book. However, it is a premonition of whats to come. Flashbacks - Often times, Eragon looks back at the life he once had. What you get is not specific memories. It's just Eragon reflecting on how much his life has changed. Review I loved Eragon. Very fast paced, and adventurous. It had a great plot.
All of the characters seemed real. They did things that made sense.
The booked flowed. Everything made sense and it didn't seem like the author put something in the story just for the sake of convenience. I would recommend this book to anyone and everyone.
