Sometimes you just need a little break from the real world and go into a fantasy world. Sometimes all it takes is a good book, a good game, a good movie. Reading and writing for me is like escaping my real life and stepping into a completely different world where everything is possible.
One of the books (or shall I say series of books) that completely took me away to a new world where nothing was impossible was the Eragon Saga. The four incredible books written by the very talented and amazing Christopher Paolini completely took me away to a land where I got to meet elves, magical creatures from all over this fantasy world, where I could fly and meet dragons, where you can have a bond with others so strong that it trumps anything else.
These books came into my life at a time that I really needed to get away, and to this day they hold a special place in my heart. The way Christopher worked on a map to describe this land, the way he approaches each character, all details are so real that you really feel like you are a part of something incredible.
