About the author

Biography of Paolini, Christopher

Christopher Paolini was born in Southern California on November 17, 1983, but grew up primarily in Paradise Valley, Montana. He was home schooled and at the age of 15, graduated from high school through an accredited correspondence course at American School in Chicago, Illinois. He decided to write a book and after three years of writing and editing, Eragon was self-published in 2001. The Paolini family spent the following year promoting the book themselves by giving presentations to the local library and high school and then eventually branching out to libraries, bookstores, and schools across the United States.

After his step-son read a copy of the book, author Carl Hiaasen brought Eragon to the attention of publisher Alfred A. Knopf, who acquired the rights to publish Eragon and the rest of the Inheritance Cycle in 2003. The other books in the cycle include Eldest, Brisingr, and Inheritance. Eragon was made into a movie in December 2006.

Customer Product Reviews

Rated 4.8 out of 5★ by 5reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5★ by beautiful book I bought this book online for my 10 year-old son. The first one that came was damaged by shipping, but Walmart sent another one out before I even sent the damaged one back!The book is stunning. It is very visual and has tiny pockets throughout with little "items" tucked into them that pertain to the world of Eragon.I would not recommend for a child younger than 8 or 9, as the type is very small and script-like. This book was perfect for my son who has read all 3 of the Eragon books and can appreciate this visual reference of the world he escapes into when reading. 12/22/2009
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Must have for fans! I brought this book as a gift to my girlfriend, she originally had it but her parents sold it. She told me how that book meant the world to her and that it made her cry when they did. So for her birthday I brought it for her. Giving it to her made me so happy because she was more excited than I thought she would be. She loves it and I have to agree the art work is very beautiful. I say that it is a great buy for the fans of the series. 03/05/2012
