A Boy and His Dragon | [R. Cooper]

A Boy and His Dragon

Arthur MacArthur needs a job, and not just for the money. Before he dropped out of school to support his younger sister, he loved being a research assistant at the university. But working for a dragon, one of the rarest and least understood magical beings, has unforeseen complications. While Arthur may be the only applicant who isn’t afraid of Philbert Jones in his dragon form, the instant attraction he feels for his new employer is beyond disconcerting.

Publisher's Summary

A Being(s) in Love Story

Arthur MacArthur needs a job, and not just for the money. Before he dropped out of school to support his younger sister, he loved being a research assistant at the university. But working for a dragon, one of the rarest and least understood magical beings, has unforeseen complications. While Arthur may be the only applicant who isn’t afraid of Philbert Jones in his dragon form, the instant attraction he feels for his new employer is beyond disconcerting.

Bertie is a brilliant historian, but he can’t find his own notes without help - his house is a hoard of books and antiques, hence the need for an assistant. Setting the mess right is a dream come true for Arthur, who once aspired to be an archivist. But making sense of Bertie’s interest in him is another matter. After all, dragons collect treasure, and Arthur is anything but extraordinary.

    "love the novel, narrator in audio could be better"
    What did you like best about A Boy and His Dragon? What did you like least?

    I love the book and got the audiobook at a discounted rate.. It's quite an interesting story and love the characters.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    I do not like the "acting" in the narration. I do not know how old the narrator is but he sounds old(the way he reads and voices speech). The narrator's voice makes the characters quite a bit older than they should be(especially Bertie). They could have found a better match in terms for the book.


    Was A Boy and His Dragon worth the listening time?

    I listened to it so i could multitask. but it wasn't the best audiobook I have download. I have heard worse.. but it was bearable.

    What made the experience of listening to A Boy and His Dragon the most enjoyable?

    I have listened to this book at least 3 times. I love the characters, they are really well developed. The story is very entertaining. Definitely worth the money or credit. I would highly recommend.

    "Slow narration"

    I enjoyed the story itself very much but the purposeful slow way the narrator read made it really had to get into.

    "Sweet story, narration is sadly lacking"

    I have this as an ebook, and I absolutely love the story. It is also much better than the first one in the series, I think. The narration is really horrible, though. I listened to the sample and realized it there, so I cannot really blame anybody for my purchase but myself. I like the story so much, though, that I thought how bad can it be? I admit, it can be really bad. The voices can hardly be distinguished, and the pronounciation and emphasis of emotions feels all wrong to me. That is aside from the fact that the book could probably be two hours shorter, if the narration would be conducted at a normal speed. I am sad, but it is what it is. I recommend actually reading the book, as it is a much more enjoyable experience. I will avoid the narrator in the future.
