I have a good friend who is convinced the series is a HUGE ripoff of LOTR... LOL! her and I are diehard LOTR fans and I can see similarities.... I mean, heck... Human "Eragon" is in love with Elf "Arya".... Eragon - Arya.... Aragorn - Arwen.... LMAO! And the scene in the Hadarac desert when the guys on horseback surround them makes me think back to the Rohirim surrounding Aragorn, Legolas, and Gimli in LOTR... But it is hard to not plagiarize sometimes as there can be similarities by accident honestly. LOL
It is great! Not even my closest friends are quite on the same page as me with books. We all have complete different preferences, so it's great to find someone with similar taste. Heck I didn't think I'd find another person who really found interest in Inheritance cycle! Most people who see me reading it say, "omigosh that's such a long book." Then they imediately assume it's boring just cuz it takes time to read!
That sounds perfect! I wish that were a reality for me! I'm the type of reader who likes to have multiple copies of books too... So I can lend them out without worry, and also just because. I also own a kindle and plan to buy all my favorite books in kindle form as well as own the hard and paperback copies as well... I need to be rich :P
