Eragon is just a poor farmboy when a mysterious blue rock appears at his foot while hunting. He soon learns it is a dragon egg and he is a Dragon Rider, one of the old legends he's heard about as a child. He and his dragon Saphira must stop the evil King Galbatorix and his dragon Shruikan and save Alageasia.
This book, by Christopher Paolini, was enchanting and very hard to put down. I liked the world in which the author put his story, where Dragon Riders ruled and magic was at the hands of everyone. I think young boys will like this book very much. It made me feel like i was actually in the world of Eragon.
