My 9 year old daughter will not stop listening to these audiobooks. This one has been listened to four times and she STILL wants to hear it. David Tennant does a remarkable job narrating a superb fantasy story of Cowells. I would recommend this audiobook and in fact any of the How to Train your Dragon Books to everyone.
It puts you right to sleep guaranteed. Not to say it isn't interesting. It is, especially if you happen to be a WWII buff like me. However, it IS looooooong and oftentimes difficult to follow with the appropriately British use of syntax and language. All that sad, it still provides a most interesting perspective on WWII from the British role, specifically Churchill.
The only complaint I have for this book is the narrator. He needs to take lessons from Lou Diamond Phillips, the narrator for "Threat Vector". Michael Prichard read in a dull steady rhyme, monotone that would put me to sleep if I listened to anymore than three pages at a time.
The reader is very dry and reads in a very monotone voice. It should be like a story being told rather than a book being read.
Well worth the read if you want to know why our country is in such trouble right now. With leaders like Barak, who needs enemies.
This book should be required reading in every college level course in political history. An amazing story.
These stories and the storytelling of David Tennant just keep getting better and better. I love this one! It keeps my daughter raptured for hours. She has already played it three times.
What a wonderful series to exercise children's imaginations. Cowell develops his characters well and David Tennant does a superb job of narrating the story to children.
