really liked it

** spoiler alert ** This is a school project, and may contain certain spoilers.

My favorite part of the book was when Eragon went back to Brom's tomb and changed his description of him. It really showed how he'd gotten over his feelings since Brom had never told him he was his father, and how Eragon really does love him.

The word choice in Eragon is very creative. I'm not sure if Christopher Paolini made up the languages, or if they're real, but they're another favorite of mine. I still remember constantly looking back at the translation glossary all the time, and wondering how anyone could ever be creative enough to come up with this stuff.

The theme in this book is that no matter who you are, you can achieve even the biggest goals. Eragon was a simple farmboy, but now he's a famous dragon rider. Roran was just a normal person who worked a mill, but now he's a great warrior and married to the woman he loves and has a child. The entire town of Carvahall was just another village, but now it's the town that fended off the Ra'zac and journeyed all the way to the Varden to fight with them. So yes, theme theme is that if you believe in yourself, you can do anything.
