Christopher has created elves that are agnostic and/or in some cases atheistic, he has very devoutly religious dwarves and humans, and his main character, Eragon, appears to also be seeking answers about his faith and beliefs. This has lead many to feel that he is using his characters as a platform …for his own beliefs. However, Christopher has stated in public interviews, particularly a 2008 Herald Sun interview, that he will not discuss his own beliefs in public, but that he will say that the beliefs he has given his characters do NOT necessarily represent what he himself believes. He states that he wanted to give his characters a "well-rounded" set of beliefs and belief systems to make them more interesting to readers, and adds that he feels that it shouldn't matter to readers what his own private personal beliefs are. He emphasizes that this is an imaginary world with imaginary beings, and insists that people should not get so caught up in trying to figure out if he is inserting any "hidden agendas".

He began outlining the trilogy (which later became a "cycle") when he was fifteen years old. The book was published in 2002 when Christopher Paolini was nineteen years old.
Actually, Eragon was originally self-published. So, he had to pay someone to publish it, rather than the other way around. He was making a loss. Later, when it was picked up by a professional publisher, he did start to make money. He earns from each book sold, rather than a fixed salary.

Tolkein. Heavily. He credits him in his books. Among the various accusations of plagiarism Tolkein ranks quite highly on the list of authors that Paolini allegedly rips off. The fourth Star ars film is also pretty high on that list, as the plot of Eragon reads incredibly similarly to it, along with …many film critics making the comparisson upon the release of the film. But, Star Wars rips off The Hidden Fortress, so the credit for that story just keeps on going back. ( Full Answer )

He graduated High School at the age of 15, and had nothing else to do. He was frustrated at the lack of quality fantasy novels so he wrote on himself. From Wikipedia
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Eragon is the first book in the Inheritance Cycle by Christopher Paolini. Paolini began writing the book at the age of fifteen. After writing the first draft for a year, he spent a second year rewriting it and fleshing out the story and characters. Paol…ini's parents saw the final manuscript and decided to self-publish Eragon . Paolini spent a year traveling around the United States promoting the novel. By chance, the book was discovered byCarl Hiaasen, who got it re-published by Alfred A. Knopf. The re-published version was released on August 26, 2003. The book tells the story of a young farm boy named Eragon, who finds a mysterious stone in the mountains. A dragon named Saphira hatches from the stone, which was really an egg. When the evil King Galbatorixfinds out about Eragon and his dragon, he sends his servants after them in an effort to capture them. Eragon and Saphira are forced to flee from their hometown, and decide to search for the Varden, a group of rebels who want to see the downfall of Galbatorix. Critiques of Eragon often pointed out the similarities between Eragon and other works such as The Lord of the Rings and Star Wars . Reviews also called the book a notable achievement for such a young author as Paolini. Eragon was the third-best-selling children's hardback book of 2003, and the second-best-selling paperback of 2005. It placed on the New York Times Best Seller list for 121 weeks. Eragon was adapted into afeature film of the same name that was released on December 15, 2006. It was directed by Stefen Fangmeier and written by Peter Buchman. The film starred Ed Speleers in the role of Eragon. ( Full Answer )

On randombuzzers.com, a few months ago or so, Christopher Paolini was answering his fans' questions, and one of them was when he will finish his next book. His response was that he was not finished, but was kinda' close, as, when he was writing the third book, he found that it was going to be too lo…ng, so he ommitted some so that he could fit it into the fourth book. ( Full Answer )
When Paolini was 15 years old, he started to write his debute novel, Eragon, the first in a cycle of four books. Until know there are 3 published: Eragon, Eldest and Brisingr.
the name of the book has been said by paolini himself on his webpage to be named inheritance and have a green dragon on the cover
November 8th. It's called Inheritance, if your wondering. It's already out. You can get it at Barnes & Noble for $27.99 or at walmart for $18.32.
Christopher Paolini has been very well known for his bestselling series of the Inheritance Cycle. He is currently writing the forth book and as he says, 'I'm very close to being finished! Hang on in there!'. He has other plans as well, but for now, he'll stick with The Inheritance Cycle. _______…_______________________________________________________________ so far only inheritance ( Full Answer )
once the land prospered under the careful rule of the dragon riders. One of the riders, Galbatorix, had his dragon killed in war and went insane from grief. He demanded another, but his request was refused. He stole a hatchling and went away. he destoyed the riders.
SPOILER WARNING!*** They defeat Galbatorix. Nasuada becomes queen of Alagaesia (sp?) and Murtagh becomes good, because he falls in love with Nasuada. Roren lives and gets to be an Earl. They rescue a ton of hijacked dragon eggs and Eragon goes on to train a new order of dragons and riders. He and Ar…ya go their separate ways and do not become a couple... very disappointing. ( Full Answer )
Possibly. He has stated that he may write more novels set inAlagaesia, including a direct continuation of the InheritanceCycle.
After finishing Inheritance he had mentioned that he had other ideas for books in mind. And now that the series was over he would be free to publish his other books that he said had been in the "pipeline" for years. So yes he will most likely write more books in the future. And he has also said t…hat he may sometime later visit the Eragon series and write a standalone title. ( Full Answer )
Saddly, he said he ended the Inheritance Series, and is going to do other books about the Rider before the Dragon Rider Fall, and one that is only about the other characters in Alegasha.
Paolini said he might revisit Alagaesia later in the future, and in Inheritance there are small hints that he may write another book, so for now my answer is yes. Forgive me if i am wrong, but i simply took the implications and i also read the acknowledgments in the back(im such a creeper arent i? l…ol) and he said he hopes to come back to alagaesia. Either way, i also am hoping for a branch off series!: ) ( Full Answer )
His 'abiding love of fantasy' inspired his first book, and the fact that he lives in paradise valley in the USA with a view of the beartooth mountains (or something) gave him the scenery for Algaesia.
He looked up a lot of old Norse and Swedish words, added some Ã and ' too make it look awesome. But makes most words a bit hard to pronounce, if you don't know how to pronounce the: Ã and ' in some words. He also took words from other languages like German and bastardised English words. Some …words are completely made up. You can also see that Paolini draw inspiration from the Japanese honorific system. While most grammar system are English and the language it self is made to fit in normal English sentences. ( Full Answer )
He intends to continue writing about events in Alagaesia, but Eragon's story is more or less finished, and the Inheritance cycle complete. Many speculate that he will write about dragon riders in training to Eragon and their repopulation of the continent as the ultimate peace-keepers.
Christohper Paolini had many inspirations but two of his largestand most influential ones were Lord of the Rings and Star Wars.
