Two More Books/Authors of Influence
The first is that I love the book Eragon by Christopher Paolini (in fact the entire series is phenomenal). But the real lesson I learned from this is, How Not to Turn a Book Into A Movie. Have you seen the movie? It is not just a bad representation of the book, it's a bad movie on it's own. The edits are choppy and the real essence of the story is just not there. It's a shame because it could have been an amazing movie. But, the ironic part is that the author probably had no say in how the movie was actually created. You win some, you lose some?
