The movie took out way too much and it was just horrible. The novel wins.

novel the movie stinks, but the book...its good

the entire damn thing sucked. christopher paloni is nothing more than a kid with a hyperactive imagination and a tendency to steal ideas from other great works of fiction from before his time.

I choose novel because the story is much detailed. In film there are scenes which is deleted.

How can u even make this thread, its obvious the book exceeds the movie 1000000000times, the movie sucked!!
Everything about the movie was wrong.... the worst was that Saphira gave herself a name in the movie :'(
and that Eragon was wrong, Wrong, WRONG!
I cant wait until the last book comes out :3

AT LAST!!!! A thread in which to rant!!! You brought this on yourself:

Eragon was the worst drivel I've ever read in my life!!!He just ripped of loads of other, better fantasy writers like tolkien,eddings and feist. The only reason he got published is because his bloody parents are publishers! The book was full of words that were out of place, words that he obviously just stuck in because he thought they sounded good so he looked them up in a dictionary to see where he could inject them in.

Also, the bloody fainting!!!!
He faints like a gazillion times in the book!!!!

Fainting is a very poor cheap thing that crappy authors use to have a quick transition from one scene to the next, it requires very little effort, and it was so annoyingly obvious!!


...didn't watch the movie. I have it though for some reason, but I don't think I'll be watching it. If I do I'll be back to rant some more :)


yes some of that is true ie fainting but there is an appearance that makes it seem like the book ripped off other fantasies and it obviously borows from others (LUKE I AM YOUR FATHER) but they are not what they seem. Brom is really Eragon's father if ur a half-assed reader u should know this. www.shurutgal.com if u wana see the specifics. yea the vocab was kinda forced but seriously he was like what 15 when he started writing this? if he wrote a book like this at 15 i'd like to see improved works of his when he gets older... i mean cmon and really the 2nd book showed many improvements over the 1st oh... and Movie sucked so so so bad

yep star wars set in midevil times although some things that make it seem star-warsish are going to be disproved in the later books

I watched the movie before I read the book...I really didn't get who the lady was...I definitely liked the book more.

I didn't even read the book and I could tell they left out a bunch of scenes and events in the movie.
