Another Excellent Audiobook.

This book is fun and full of adventure. I just love this series. I started out listening to this series with my 11 year old son. Since I listen to books so much faster than him I went ahead of him and started reading the rest of these by myself. Since I enjoyed these stories I have no problem listening to them again with him. This book had a new character in that reminded me of a Professor Gilderoy Lockhart from Harry Potter, which made me laugh. As usual there is doom coming for the folks on the Island of Burk and we get to go on the adventure with Hiccup and his friends to save everyone. The narrator is excellent and I would gladly listen to anything he narrated.

This book is awesome!!

The story is brilliant!! And Cressida cowel couldn't have picked a better person to narrate this book than david tennant. He narrates this book so well that sometimes I forget that it's only one person that reads the story.

Great road trip distraction for the whole family!

Everyone will thoroughly enjoy the adventures of Hiccup, Toothless and all of the characters in the How to Train Your Dragon series. Better than the movies and so fun to listen to! Adjust your playback settings to turn up treble and turn down bass and you’ll be happier. The dialogue gets drowned out in these recordings otherwise. A hoot for all!

Fabulous fun!

I am a fifty something adult with no children and I am enjoying this series beyond measure. But in this particular book David Tennant outdoes himself in the narration. His character voices and singing the various parts are incredibly funny and endearingly entertaining in this story. It is my favorite so far and I cannot wait to hear the rest of them!

It was ok....

Okay, I’ve gotta say the story was great... but David Tennant kinda messed it up A LOT. He makes Gobber the Belch too loud and the exterminators WAY too raspy. Yeah, way to go dude.😕
