* {{Doorstopper}}: He tends to write rather long books; his debut novel alone has over 500 pages (the exact number varies depending on the edition). ''Brisingr'' was originally a hefty ''1500'' pages long before he realized it was too long and split it into two books(and they're both still over 800 pages long, ''each''). ''The Fork, the Witch and the Worm'', a collection of ''Inheritance Cycle'' short stories, is an outlier at just 288 pages.

Christopher Paolini (b. 1983) is the author of the ''Literature/InheritanceCycle'', a series of HighFantasy DoorStopper novels. He finished writing the first book, ''Eragon'', at the age of nineteen, though it was heavily marketed as a book written by someone who "graduated high school at fifteen". It was published [[UltimateJobSecurity by his parents]] before Knopf, a publishing company, picked it up (his parents started an independent publishing company to produce the book; it is an UrbanLegend that they already owned one a company the author describes as [[http://fantasy-faction.com/2012/christopher-paolini-interview "my parents, my sister and myself, sitting around our kitchen table"]]). To many people's surprise, it took off, mostly because of being found by a Knopf publishing editor in a book store who's child liked it, though fantastic marketing on behalf of Paolini and his family, such as months of visiting schools across the United States to promote the book (which he did in "period" garb, played its part.

Knopf publishing editor in a book store who's child liked it, after his stepson enjoyed the book, though fantastic marketing on behalf of Paolini and his family, such as months of visiting schools across the United States to promote the book (which he did in "period" garb, garb), played its part.
