One of the best parts of any of these books is figuring out who gets the dragon that's pictured on the cover, and this one is just as fantastic! Oh and by the way, I want my own dragon. So if anyone knows of one for cheap (let's face it, I'm a public servant), let me know.
My favorite part of the whole book though was the very end. I rarely feel so satisfied at the end of a series. Hats off to you Paolini for taking your time to bring closure to the story and not rush things. After the big stuff is over, there are almost 100 pages that are used to tell the reader who ended up where and how. With an ending like that, who needs an epilogue? So thank you many times over Christopher!
