I'm so very excited about Literary Locals this month!! I have had so many new people sign up in just the last few weeks and I cannot wait to see what Literary Locals everyone has to share with us!
As for me, I'm still in the process of getting caught up on all of my reviews from our big move over the last couple of months. I know that I have a stack of local authors that I wanted to highlight, but I really think that I only have one review complete . . . the one that I posted last night! Isn't that horrible?!?! Hopefully, I will have a long list for next month!
I believe that Paolini is one of the better known Montana authors. Afterall, a movie was made of his first book in The Inheritance Cycle: Eragon. Does he really need the publicity for his series? Probably not! But, because I have a special place in my heart for Montana authors, he is going to get a highlight here from me!
Have you read this series before? Or, have you seen the movie, Eragon? I just want to add a little personal opinion here for any of you that may have only seen the movie . . . forget the whole thing!!!! In my opinion, the film that was made from Paolini's book is THE worst adaptation to the big screen that I have ever seen!! It did not give the author justice for his creativity and brilliance. It left out key details . . . as in forgetting to mention that Arya is an elf!! If you have only seen the movie, you MUST read the books to truly appreciate the mind of this young author.
On another note and speaking of Montana, I have added a fun little poll to my sidebar. Take a minute to submit your vote and share your travels on the Big Sky!
Support your local authors and post a review through the comment section (either via a link or directly embedded). As reviews are posted, I will update this post to reflect your local author highlights as well!
