Christopher Paolini started writing Eragon when he was just 15 years old. By the age of 19, Eragon had made him into a New York Time’s best selling author and by 2003 the book was placed on the New York Times Children’s Best Selling Books for 121 straight weeks. It was the third best-selling children’s hard-cover book of the year, and in 2006 won the prestigious, Young Readers Choice Award. Paolini went on to finish the series started in Eragon, by releasing three other books that would later become The Inheritance Cycle.
