This is a fabulous story full of fun entertaining characters. I will listen to this story over and over again. Brendan Frasers's performance is the main reason for this. He is underused in Hollywood. I was amazed at his ability to perform the voices and accents and sound effects. He made the whole story come alive for me. I have resisted reading it as it bored me once, but listening made me agree with my 10 year old daughter. YES this is A GREAT BOOK! Try it not only for the story, but to enjoy a very gifted actor who should read more children's fiction.
The release of the dragons by the mountain dwarf is a fabulous moment. Simple and sweet.
We love the part when the moon turned dark and the dragon had to land on a sea serpent in the middle of the ocean.
The scene involving Twigleg's confession made me ache for his character's change of heart.
I would never hesitate to download a book with Brendan Fraser reading it or Cornelia Funke writing it.
