One of my friends likes the movie but doesn't like the book which i think is weird. Aslo onbe of my friedns friends (He used to be my friend but not any more) used to like Eragon but doesn't anymore just because my friend doesn't.

i have met quite a few people that don't like eragon, but i agree. you can't compare cp to tolkien, cp was only 15 when he wrote those books! he will definately improve with age. i've tried to get a couple of friends to read eragon, but they just said that it was boring. one person couldn't even get past the prolouge without getting really bored! only one of my friend likes eragon. so, yeah, i've met a lot of eragon haters!

:twisted: Well, to play Devil's Advocate, except not really, you have to realize, Paolini started it when he was fifteen, he was nineteen when it was actually published. Eldest was published when he was around twenty-two, so he no longer has that excuse. And, you know, when it was first published? His parents owned the company that did it, and it was a combination of advertising and luck that it got picked up by the big companies, so it's not as surprising as it looks that he got published so 'young'.
And the anti-shur'tugals and other Eragon-haters do, in fact, make some really good points about the book comparisons, the characters, the purple prose, and the world-building. Here's a site that is basically a chapter-by-chapter commentary of Eragon and Eldest, and it basically details everything I find wrong with the books myself. It's sarcastic and humorous as well, provided you don't take the site or the books too seriously. :P

Myself, I don't really care for the books all that much, but I'm addicted to anything that involves people bonding to animals, so hey. It's really the opportunity for fanfiction and roleplay (if I ever get approved) that keeps my interest.

well, yeah, your right, but that still is pretty young. the average 22 year-old (how old is he now?) would be in their last year of college. how many people publish their second book in their last year of college? not many.

I have seen plenty of Eragon haters, and a lot that say he took from Tolkin and Star Wars. While he was probably influenced with the stories, it's hard to say anything wasn't in some way influenced by Tolkin's work or Star Wars. But I get a little annoyed when people say that he blatantly plagiarized the works. It's hard to write anything completely original now a days, it has already been done in some shape or form before.

Also, I heard that it was an author who brought the book of 'Eragon' to the attention of his publisher, Alfred A. Knopf, because his stepson had been reading the book.

None of my friends have read the boox, they are creeped only when they see book which is that big...... :lol: thez barely even read some stupid teenage boox.....and this is too much 4 them,,,,,,,

so they didn't read the boox so they don't hate them...

but...
look what i've found

Gods Rest ye, Varden Warriors,
Let nothing ye dismay.
Remember that your savoir,
Was born some random day.
To save us all from Galby’s pow’r.
He led the dragon Riders astray,
Oh, let’s all pay tribute to this boy, idiot boy,
Oh let’s all pay tribute to this boy.
In some old house, in Carvahall,
This blessed Babe was born,
And laid upon the dusty floor.
To be trodden on,
We fear that that is what must’ve happened
There’s no other way
This baby could become this dumb, become this dumb,
This normal baby could become this dumb.
For lo, said he, and drew his sword,
I’ll leap right into the flames!
They cannot harm me, he said,
I’m too cool to feel pain!
But now, we look, and now we see
The truth of our ‘hero’
He’s just a nancy idiot, nancy idiot,
He’s just a nancy idiot.

Yeah, I've neaver met any one who hates the books. Just people who've read them and think they're fine, or people who just don;t care. Or people like me, totaly obsessed with them.

Ha Ha! :lol:

I haven't really run across any real haters, but my friend read the first few pages of Eragon and threw it down and said,"This is boring." :shock: I don't get how she found the begging scene boring at all! :?

Post Re: Has anyone else run accross Eragon haters?
I originally come from the mainstream site Inheritance Forums, and trust me, there are HUNDREDS of haters that go there. Don't be fooling, many of them are good friends of mine, but as they said, the hype has withered away in them, and they begin to pull apart the books plot hole by plot hole.

It makes me sad to see that people can't just simply enjoy a good story now and then.

I know what you mean, it makes me sad as well. I can't understand the mindset, life is too short to be wasting valuable time critiquing something to death. I'm not going to deny it has its flaws, or say that there's no merit in discussing them, because that's not true. I can pick them out by the boatload if I wished. Or I can just enjoy myself :P
