Christopher Paolini - General comments
Whilst Christopher Paolini's books might be "standard fantasy" type books, with unorigional characters, I found the read most enjoyable. Paolini has created an unpredictable plot that has kept me captivated through multiple reads. His works are spectacular "un-put-downable" and, and many will aggree with me, absolutelty brilliant. The only criticism I have is the large time delay from the release of Eldest to the release of Brisingr. Overall, these books are great and definitely worth reading.

I must say, this is a great series. I have just finished the Eldest in awe. Christopher Paolini is very descriptive and informative of what is going on at all times. And the characters are quire dynamic to say the least, no two characters the same. Christopher Paolini has been revered, to me, one of the greatest authors of this generation.

These books can be described in one word -- unoriginal. These books bear a close resemblance to The Lord of the Rings and the Dragonriders of Pern series, and way to close for my liking. The characters are also "Mary-Sues" and "Gary-Stus", which any fanfic or RPGer would know that it means a character that is too perfect and saps realism from the plot. Another negative feature of the characters is that they are very generic; almost all fantasy series have characters like Eragon, Sahpira, and Arya.
