Book by Christopher Paolini: Eragon
This book is written by Christopher Paolini (more info about the author can be found here: Teen reads and on Book browse )
About the book: It’s a story about a boy (called Eragon) living in a fantasy kingdom. He doesn’t know his real parents (actually he heard a few rumors about his mother) and now he lives with his relatives (uncle and his son). One day he finds a strange blue rock, and after some problems with the local people, he realizes that it is not JUST a rock (well, he realizes what it is when a dragon hatches out from it :) ). Through the book Eragon and Saphira (his dragon, and yes, she is female) go through adventures, and I can say that I really liked them both :) .
I would really recommend this book. It has many nice moments, and isn’t hard to read. You’ll fall in love with Eragon and Saphira (not ‘that’ kind of love :) ).
I can’t wait for the next two parts of the trilogy (yes, this book is the first part of the trilogy)
