Yes, they are good books. The first one is a bit childish at points, but the second one is written a lot better, because paolini wrote it when he was older. I definitely recommend reading the series.

If you guys like that kind of stuff, I highly recommend "The Sword of Truth" series, by Terry Goodkind. I'm currently reading "Chainfire" (book 9). These are some great books. I like the genre, but by no means is it the only genre I read. My Dad, on the other hand, usually doesn't read this genre at all, and he is completely hooked on this series. At the very least, you have to read the first book... "The Wizard's First Rule".

Knapp, I've noticed that you and I share a lot of the same opinions when it comes to movies and music and such. Give this book a try, you won't regret it.

Oh, BTW... these books are "R" rated (for violence, not sex). They are definitely NOT children's books.

How do you like it? I've never picked it up but it's been on the "maybe" list for ages.

Huge fan of these books, can't wait for the third. But as for my summer reading I have to read these four books "Fast Food Nation" "Riding the Bus with my Sister" "There are no children Here" and ones of these two for an "A''

8-o


Those all sound like real page-turners. I don't know, Tiki - if I were forced to read these books I might consider gouging out my eyes and claiming blindness as an excuse.
