After some downtime, the Sunday Review is back with a vengeance! A … fairly gentle vengeance, but a vengeance. Today, we’ll be taking a look at something which is fairly nostalgic for me, and which holds a lot of weight as something to endlessly rant about. Yes, we’ll be looking at that classic in the realm of hatedom: Christopher Paolini’s Eragon.
It’s got swords. It’s got sorcery. It’s got elves and orc—um, I mean Urgals. This book, while widely loved by teenage boys and me before I became unbearably sarcastic, has become one of the internet’s biggest pet peeves. So what better book to welcome back the Sunday Review? Let’s take a look at this much-hated classic, and see if it deserves its reputation!
