The Home Quotes in Eragon
How we cite our quotes: (Chapter.Paragraph)
Come to me Eragon, for I have answers to all you ask. You will not be safe until you find me. (59.11)
At the end of the novel, as Eragon recovers from the battle of Farthen Dûr, the Cripple Who is Whole enters Eragon's mind, promising safety and answers. What do you make of this invitation? Isn't his voice essentially promising the comforts of home to Eragon? The fact that Eragon's entire time has been spent on the road, fighting hostile forces, seems to make this invitation all the more…well, inviting. Eragon's final words in the book then, seem to suggest that he's off to seek the home that he lost at the book's very beginning.
