    Would you listen to How to Train Your Dragon again? Why?

    I already have listened to this twice. Because I can't listen to it all in one go, I've listened a chapter or two at a time. It was nice to go back and hear parts that I didn't quite catch because something was distracting me. I laughed more the second time around. Oh and by the way, I am an adult. I picked this audio book because of narrator and because I love the premise of the movie which was my introduction to Hiccup and company.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Toothless. He and I have similar qualities.


    Have you listened to any of David Tennant’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes. Just as good. I like that he can do classics serious, sci fi serious and now light-hearted, comedic serious.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Hiccup discovering that Toothless liked jokes.


    Any additional comments?

    Can hardly wait to relax with the other Dragon books.

    The How to Train Your Dragon series chronicles the adventures and misadventures of Viking underdog Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III and his dragon, Toothless. In Book 9, a dragon rebellion is coming - filled with the meanest, nastiest dragons in the Archipelago. Razor-wings, Tonguetwisters, and Vampire Ghouldeaths are attacking Vikings and seem to be seeking one soul in particular: Hiccup Horrendous Haddock the Third!

    If you could sum up How to Train Your Dragon: How to Steal a Dragon's Sword in three words, what would they be?

    At this stage, it is getting somewhat predictable and it is David Tennant's performance to makes me listening.


    If you’ve listened to books by Cressida Cowell before, how does this one compare?

    As good


    What does David Tennant bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The characters come alive. Every one is different and I can recognize the characters as they go from book to book

    The rollicking sequel to How to Train Your Dragon and How to Be a Pirate offers a fast-paced plot, slapstick humor, witty dialogue, to enhance an exciting tale featuring Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III.

    2nd only to the first How to Train Your Dragon when it comes to humorous books. I don't usually listen to children's books, but I need some really really light, unpretentious and fun distractions right now.

    Reunion with Toothless at Fort Sinister
