Book (and Film) Review: Eragon

Hi-de-hi Peeps! You probably know we're bookworms and movie boffins in this house. So you won't be surprised to learn that I was hungrily hunting for a book to read a few weeks ago. I turned to my daughter (who has her own small library collection!) and saw that she has all 4 Eragon books [...]

It's great, but I think I need a few thousand pounds to reserve a permanent seat in the cinema! There [...]
