He wrote Eragon and Eldest. And everyone here thinks he is just horrible but I really enjoyed Eragon. I haven't gotten to read Eldest yet.

Well, they don't really like CP (Christopher Paolini) so they don't want you to be like him.

Basically, he's the most unoriginal writer of this new century and probably will be until 2100.
Shaun has this idea that fantasy is never going to be truly original anymore, but he hasn't even bothered to try and come up with anything original. At least most other writers try their best to write something that doesn't look like it was plagiarised.

Really? I found him pretty original. I mean, fantasy in this age, all kinda copy each other.

Couldn't have said it plainer, Imelda. MM, analyse the plot of the original Star Wars trilogy, then the plot of the Inheritence Cycle (as far as it has gone, and up to Eragon, as you haven't read Eldest yet) and you'll see some very "coincidental" similarities. Plus, the third book is going to be called Brisingr. When I heard that I thought: "Oh, how much more original can he get?" If you couldn't see the sarcasm in that, you need help.

Wow. I can't believe you've never heard of Christopher Paolini.

At our Hastings, they're having a midnight release party for it. X_X The only thing worthy of midnight release parties is Harry Potter. Eragon doesn't even come close in comparison.

Howdy MAZ! Welcome!

OMG! I might know you! I doubt it, but... did you have a rabbit named Wallaby?

I have a horse named Diago!

...please don't freak out if you have no idea what I'm talking about! I just have a friend who gets called Maz sometimes, I guess.

...
Now I feel weird. I hope I didn't scare you away! I'm not insane, I promise!!! O____o
