This isn't a copy of lord of the rings... It shares a few general things in common, but it is certainly not a copy.
I really loved this series, and I've been waiting for book 4 for the past year it so. I just wish they could've made an epic movie series like lord of the rings. Yes many things are lost when making a movie, but let's just face it, the Eragon movie was so different from the book you can't even make a semi accurate sequel! I hope they remake it and put a little bit more effort into farthen dûr :) because the movie made it look like a crappy little village.
Whoever read the Harry potter series will love this book. Same for the lord of the rings. The has a lot of fantasy. Kids would like this book also.
Best book ever
Enough said. :) if you like the lord of the rings you will love this book.
