Anyone Read This?

Christopher Paolini wrote his fantasy novel Eragon when he was 15. Several drafts and four years later, his novel is third on the NY Times hardcover children's chapter books best-seller list, ahead of four of the Harry Potter books. Of course those books have been out for some time, so I doubt J.K. Rowling is bawling about making fewer royalties.

So buzz aside, has anyone read this book? Is it any good as a work of high fantasy? Guess I'll find out at some point.
