Christopher Paolini on inheriting JK Rowling’s crown, 29 September 2008, Melbourne Herald Sun. Melbourne, Australia
Credits: Many direct quotes from Mr. Paolini, most of them to do with his writing and the books, and the history of getting his first book, Eragon, off the ground.
Demerits: Homeschooling socialization critique tacked on to the ‘controversy’ section of a character in the book Eldest questioning of the gods, and the quality of the Eragon movie. I don’t think the entire observation, “The Inheritance series is an epic work of imagination, particularly considering it’s the work of a boy home-schooled with his sister all his life,” was necessary. The writer could well have stopped that sentence after the word, “boy.”
