To Err with Eragon

Give me historical fiction and I will consume it, every last morsel of it! Give me fantasy...well, then like a young child, I will push it around on my plate and then probably hide it under the napkin. Yeah, if it's not Harry Potter then I really don't give fantasy much of a try. But I've heard that mature people try new things...so since many of my students absolutely rave about Eragon, I figured it was time to see what was so "woo hoo" about this dragon. Well, "my bad" because I thought Eragon was the name of the dragon on the cover. No. Her name is Saphira, and I'm in love with her! Eragon really shouldn't be in the youth section of bookstores because it can entrance any reader...even me.

I can usually read through a 300-page book in a day, but Eragon was a slowly savored book and it consumed about three days and some very late nights.
