Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
A fun adventure for all ages. My family listened to this while on a trip and the driving time just flew by. Hiccup and Toothless are defiantly the underdogs and have lots of adversity to overcome. I just love Gobber the Belch, he cracks me up. Dog Breathe, Snot Lout, Fish Legs, Warty Hog what crazy names. The narration is super funny, I like how it explains the book at odd times. I think they could have cut down on the sound in between chapters, but this one was better than the first in that respect. The narrator does an excellent job.
A dreamer who loves the adventures hidden in every story!!
I have a 45 min commute to work everyday, and for my husband and I those 45 mins have been quite pleasant thanks to this book. We have spent that time laughing and engrossed in the book vs getting mad at the horrendous traffic we have to deal with everyday. Granted that this is a children's book but nowhere does it say adults can't enjoy it. This, just like the first, was funny and entertaining. I love the characters of Toothless, Fishlegs and Hiccup and it has been an absolute delight watching them stumble into being the heroes. I am looking forward to the time my son is old enough to read and understand this book and all the fun we will have reading it together. Cressida Cowell is a genius and David Tennant is just absolutely amazing!
I read the first How to Train Your Dragon to my kids last summer. For this summer, I got How to Be a Pirate for us to listen to on our family vacation. We didn't do that, but on a day when I had to take a road trip and my kids came with me, I coaxed them to listen to it. It did not disappoint.
The story is fun, with lots of humor and adventure. And David Tennant's narration was excellent. We all thoroughly enjoyed this book and highly recommend it.
The books are even better than the movie. I have children who will listen straight through from start to finish. That is a sign of a good book and a brilliant performance!
The adventures kept turning, in each chapter ! Even the ending was a surprise !
How to train your Dragon !
He did excellent with every character ! Even Toothless !
Who wants to be a Hero !
This is an awesome book for any age, I think ! The imagery in each sentence, is like watching a movie !
Overall it was fun. The story was exciting. David Tennant gave the story life. There were moments that were heartfelt and touching. It made me laugh, smile, and smirk. It is great for kids or just those who are kids at heart.
