So, i'm having a very difficult time deciding what to post. And I just got up and ate a bowl of cereal. And there I just did a math lesson. Oh what fun.
The Inheritance Cycle by Christopher Paolini are...wonderful books. I love them. And I mean, congrats to Paolini for writing the book when he was like 15 or something. If you've read them, you'll understand that he /must/ be uber smart. He was homeschooled, so it makes sense. :3
But, he HAD to be a Star Wars fan. Because the similarities between the first two books and the first two (original, not prequel) Star Wars movies are ridiculous.
A New Hope= Eragon
-Slightly whiny farm boy (Eragon and Luke) lives with his Uncle (and aunt in Luke's case.)
-He leaves home with some seemingly crazy (or really is crazy, depending on how you would like to look at it) old man (Brom and Obi-Wan.)
-*MAJOR PLOT POINT SPOILER WARNING, IF YOU HAVEN'T READ ERAGON AND PLAN TO SKIP THIS ONE* The old master (Brom and Obi-Wan) die.
-Luke/Eragon continues his journey with a stranger (Han/Murtagh) and the two rescue a beautiful elven girl (or princess) named Arya/Leia.
-Eragon/Luke goes to an elven city/Dogobah to train to become a Rider/Jedi under Oromis/Yoda, the only other Rider/Jedi left.
-Eragon/Luke sees visions of impending doom through a scrying glass (Force Vision)
-Eragon/Luke then takes it upon himself to go save the world and not complete his training like a total idiot.
-*ANOTHER MAJOR PLOT POINT SPOILER* Eragon/Luke finds out that Morzan(A bad guy who basically had the same job Vader had)/Vader is their father. But we find out in the third book, Brisingr that Brom is really Eragon's father and that is where a difference between SW and Eragon occurs. xD
There is one more book, Brisingr (theres also another one coming out soon I think) but I never finished it. Its /very/ slow moving, and its huge. So I googled similarities between Brisingr and RotJ and I found no one talking about that. So, its possible that Paolini was getting alot of the stuff I wrote above. xD So, he made an effort not to copy RotJ.
Anyway, next week will be my monthly update! Then the week after that, I'm not entirely sure.
PS: Last weeks poll results!
