Reuters reports that Eldest has knocked Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince off the top spot at Amazon.com. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince was both the most anticipated and the largest book release of the year. Congratulations to Christopher and Eldest for this amazing feat!
Please be aware the story has a link to a second page, where there are several Christopher Paolini quotes.
“I’m most proud of the dwarf language because I created that from scratch and it has a wonderful meaty sound,” he said. “If I had a chance to actually go into the land of Alagaesia, I would live with the dwarfs and I would write dwarf opera because their language has such a great sound,” he said.
