Wasn't Christopher like 15 or something when he wrote Eragon though? For that age, i think it's pretty good. He's probably much better now anyways.

"i don't really think i'm a good person to judge whether or not a book is scary, but i wouldn't say it is, i mean, it was written around 1900."

 

 

 

Ah okay, when school starts again i shall get it from the library.

 

 

 

"he also eats a few people.

 

the bad guy is a guy that was trying to mass produce vampires for Hitler, and want to start a world war simply because "war is fun."

 

although i do warn you, if you intend to watch it, the TV series is terrible, you'll have to make sure you add in "OVA" to your search criteria."

 

 

 

Cannibalism too eh? Wow, vampire of many.. er.. talents.. :?

 

Okay, is there anyone who's relatively normal then? And idk which one is worse of these two, the good or the bad one. >_>

 

Is there a manga of it?

there's plenty of normal people, and there is a manga, but the OVA series is one of those rare gems that completely outdoes it, probably because its completely directed by the creator.

 

and surprisingly, the english dubbing is great.

No matter how old Paolini gets, people don't seem to get tired of the age argument.

 

 

 

To lay the facts out in the open for anyone else who might try this: Eragon was published in 2003. The "about the author" flap says that he was nineteen. Eldest was published in 2005, making him 21. Brisingr, the third book, was just published in September of 2008. Twenty-four.

 

 

 

He has shown no improvement whatsoever, in fact he regressed between Eragon and Eldest. So I suppose he improved over Eldest with Brisingr, but Brisingr doesn't even match Eragon, which wasn't great but not horrendous like the subsequent book.

Just because you get published early doesn't mean what you write is actually any good.

 

 

 

Also, it probably helped that his parents were publishers or something like that.

Meh, I enjoyed all 3 books in the Eragon series, though I will admit Eldest was probably the worst.

 

 

 

PS- how is this thread still going?

Lol, we're getting so off-topic here. Funny enough. Perhaps you guys should start a thread for Eragon? I totally forgot where we were up to in the Twilight argument..

If the consensus wasn't that Stephenie Meyer is a hack author who clothes her prose in adjectives to disguise its insipid blandness, and that she is nothing more than the beneficiary of a viciously effective marketing strategy, then you lot can all hang your heads in shame and hope to hell that the ghost of Bram Stoker doesn't haunt your every waking moment for reading her awful softcore porn-[bleep]-vampire romance.

Heard the rumours about New Moon yet? Granted they are just rumors, but tension in the cast is apparently growing everyday. I hope they don't stuff it up, I'm really hoping they'll do what i want them to do with the Italy scene.

It's a comedy, spent about 1/2 the time laughing. So cheesy and really lame.

 

I even had to move because I laughed so much that dreamtongirl kept hitting me in the face.

 

 

 

The Cullens are meant to be hot right? The only guy I thought was hot was some guy in the background who didn't have a speaking part/wasn't focused on.

Shazarabbit, Yep, I have heard rumours. They best have the same cast. I have a feeling New Moon will be better.

 

 

 

I agree sort of with Wong. I was even cracking up laughing in some parts, and I'm a fan. >_> I have to say I liked the book alot better. The movie was far too different, they changed it too much and their relationship was really rushed.

 

 

 

And yeah, Wongtong moved so I couldn't hit her in the face anymore about half way through. XD Hah, she was hitting on the dude in the background with super curly hair. XD

 

 

 

I can't believe I'm admitting this, either. I liked Jacob best in that, and he was hardly in it D: & I don't even like Jake! But I didn't like Edward in the movie, he was.. Weird, in my opinion. I thought Bella was played well though, they played up the whole clumsy thing. (Y).

Haha saif your post was so "FOOL OFF FAIL LOLOLOL" that I actually LOLOLOL'd.

 

 

 

I'm not into them. I like my vampires the manly way. Either hot (a la Buffy) or awesome (a la Dracula). Every girl at my school is obsessed with it, though.

 

 

 

Except for the ones that you'd think would be obsessed with it. They're too much of rebels to like it.

Well, that was amusing to read.

 

 

 

Mmmm, I'm getting a bit iffy about more or less most girls i know becomming obsessed over it. Pssh, was a fan way before the movie. XP Movie put me off a tad. >_< But I liked Bella. And jacob. (Y)

Lenin64 - Idk, I guess everyone has their different opinions. I've only read number 4 once, so I might need to read it again. But i found the rest.. Idk just.. Not as good as the first i guess. Not sure how to explain it really. In Breaking Dawn you could see the difference in her writing, it changed sort of, and the characters changed too. I didn't like Bella in number 4 nearly as much as I liked her in Twilight. Plus they split the book into 3 bits which sucks. -.-

That would be because it is a horrendous book. I guess even die hard twilighters can pick up on it when something is just that bad.

Lmaolmao.

 

 

 

And yeah, NOM. I'm not giving up my argument, I still like the first book. But the movie.. Meh.. I didn't really like it. Asides from Taylor who played Jacob in it. :thumbup:

Books are meh, i just finished reading Eclipse, and i'm moving on with Breaking Dawn. It was alright, not great, but i'ts very addicting, i found myself reading New Moon on a day and a half. I also saw the movie, it was really "meh" Some of the characters didn't look like i imagned. In the book, Edward is like the most angelical thing on Earth, but he's not that good on the movie, also, Jasper looked like a [bleep]ing idiot. I imagined him very different, (specially his hair) Alice was ok, as was Emmet, Edward was alright and Esme is good. But Carlisle looks nothing like i imagined it. Rosalie was very bad, she is supposedly the "most beautiful woman in the world"

 

 

 

Worst part? That i can not imagine them like i used to because i already associated them with the movie, my imagination was so much more awesome. If there is indeed a movie on New Moon, i will see it, but i can't imagine how Jacob and the pack will look as werewolves. The effects SUCKED on the movie. The will look so....computerized...??
