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.

Excellent!

What did you love best about How to Fight a Dragon's Fury?

Wonderful conclusion to an excellent series. Like Harry Potter, the complexity of the characters, plot and theme develop as Hiccup grows. Fun, playful stories develop a deeper meaning.

What was one of the most memorable moments of How to Fight a Dragon's Fury?

I really was not sure how it would work out...the big final battle was surprising and believable, but not just a simple "and they lived happily ever after".

What about David Tennant’s performance did you like?

What's not to like? It's a full cast performance by a single person. An amazing range of characters are brought to life, with complete personalities, even more so than described in the books. Ranging from hilarious to touching to creepy. And also clear and distinct, which is very important for audiobook "usability".

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Laughed often, cried at the end. The ending was happy...did I cry because it was over? Or because after 12 books, I felt like it was saying goodbye to a friend?

Any additional comments?

Thanks so much to Ms Cowell and Mr Tennant for creating this series. It has brought our family much happiness.

A satisfying end to a most enjoyable series

The whole family has been listening to this 12 book series of the course of 10 years. It kept us captivated for many long car journeys. The stories are full of action and imaginative detail. David Tenant gives an outstanding performance in many voices, capturing the humor and the energy of the books. The second half of the book takes awhile to draw to an end and takes on the feel of an epic but is ultimately satisfying. Highly recommend starting from book 1 and listening to the whole series.
