I really liked this book because it is fascinating and when I started to read it I did not want to stop. This book is interesting to me because I like to read about dragons. Ben reminds me of myself because I like to explore and so does he. My favorite part in Dragon Rider is when two dragons destroy Nettlebrand with brownie spit and dragon fire. My favorite character in the book is Sorrel because she calls everyone idiots and dumb heads which makes her funny. When Ben travels the world he is a lot like me because I live overseas and it has been like that for 6 years.
I recommend this book to everyone in the world from five and up because it has a lot of adventure and fantasy. If you like this book then read "Inkheart", "Inkspell", and "Thief Lord" which are also by Cornelia Funke.
