NOOOOO, say it's not over.

I'm so sad, that this series is over. I love it so much that I have already listened to it twice. I recommend this series to all, kids and adults alike. It is so fun, crazy and full of adventure. After I relistened to the series again I realize how clever Cressida Crowell is and how she ties the storyline together and makes the clues blend in nicely. In a way that it reminded me of how well JK Rowlings did it in the Harry Potter series. I hope there are more books to come from Cressida Crowell because I will be for sure trying them. I can only say good things about the narrator. I love him and wish that he did more audiobooks he really helps make the characters come to life and recognizable just by the way they talk.

Fabulous book series for kids and adults

David Tennant does a superb job of relating Hiccup's tale from beginning to end. Cressida Cowell's imagination is superlative with the most inventive and addicting take I've heard or read in a long time! The whole family got hooked from the first book.

A fantastic end

Another brilliant and much awaited How to Train Your Dragon book. As always the story and the performance were brilliant. The story pulls you in and keeps you on the edge of your seat. I found myself unable to stop listening because I wanted to know what happened next. I'm quite sad that this is the last book, but with 12 books total there is plenty to re-listen to and still enjoy. David Tennant gave another fantastic and lively performance that really brings the characters and the story to life.

AMAZING,AWESOME & MUST READ SERIES

This is an AWESOME and Amazing book! And I can not wait to read along with the audio the sequel. But in the mean time I can re-read this AMAZING story again and again until then. The auther is BRILLIANT! And if you haven't read her other series of books then you are missing out! Because they are beautiful, fun and filled with magic all around! This is one series that everyone at every age should read at least once. Also the final movie is about to be released and it looks AMAZING! And NOT disappointing.

Sad it’s over

My son and I have listen to all of this series and I found myself tearing up at the end of the series ... not only because we won’t be able to listen to any more of David Tennant’s amazing performance, but at the bittersweet but still hopeful message about human nature, change, and aging. The last 3 books are much darker than the preceding books, and this book contains the end of Hiccup’s saga from becoming a sweet misfit to true leader, still with the optimism of youth.

I can’t say how much more I enjoy these audiobooks than many other YA series — or the Dreamworks adaptations that share little of the humor, character development, or later nuance of the books. Listening to these books sparked some surprisingly deep and interesting conversations with my child about kindness and cruelty, working parents, caring for environment, being a good citizen, war, the meaning of bravery, and love.

A delight to read!

I have enjoyed immensely reading this book series. I loved the movies and decided to read the books and do not regret it at all. David Tennant did a masterful job with making the story come alive through unique voices for each of the characters. This has most definitely now made it into my favorites list and I look forward to rereading it in the future.
