    Story

    Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III may be the son of the brave leader of the mighty Viking tribe the Hairy Hooligans, but he certainly doesn’t feel very heroic. When Hiccup and the other boys his age are challenged to pick baby dragons from the dragon nursery, Hiccup actually manages to catch a small one. But now how will he train his stubborn new pet?

    Overall

    My boys loved this book and continue to listen to it over and over.

    Everyone will tell you "I liked the book better than the movie" I have to say that I will forever be an audible fan over going to the theater. I am a busy mom that likes to use quality daytime in the park or helping with a craft hands on with the kids rather than going to sit in the theater drinking too much soda or eating too much junk food. I try to read at night before bed but we tend to fall asleep before we get through a chapter. So while I am making dinner or cleaning and the kids are bored I turn on Audible. My seven and five year old sat for 3 hours straight listening to How to Train Your Dragon and was excited to tell me about all the different colored dragons which provided the family wonderful dinner conversation. I have also played it again in the car to keep their little minds occupied until we arrive at our destination. We may see the movie yet but it will have to be on video later on.

  • No One Would Listen: A True Financial Thriller

    No One Would Listen is the exclusive story of the Harry Markopolos-lead investigation into Bernie Madoff and his $65 billion Ponzi scheme. While a lot has been written about Madoff's scam, few actually know how Markopolos and his team - affectionately called "the Fox Hounds" by Markopolos himself - uncovered what Madoff was doing years before this financial disaster reached its pinnacle. Unfortunately, no one listened, until the damage of the world's largest financial fraud ever was irreversible.

    Brendan says: "Shocking, terrific"
    "I Listened Intently"
    Overall

    I too once worked in the financial industry and had known it to be an unscrupulous industry by nature. I was inexperienced and naive but learned quickly that I had to get out while I still had a head on my shoulders. Harry Markopolos writes an incredible telling thriller about how he stood up for what was right, even though he stood alone. I loved every word.
