The hilarious series which inspired the Dream Works film. Hiccup has three months, five days and six hours to get back to Berk, save his father, battle Polarserpents AND win the annual Inter-Tribal Friendly Swimming Race. Can he do it???? David Tennant reads this hilarious children's clasic which can be enjoyed by everybody.
I honestly didn't think I'm going to like this series so much when I purchased the first audiobook. The stories are wonderful, and David makes them so much more alive with his narration. Highly recommended, to children and adults alike. No age limit here!
Simply put - Excellent story and performance by David Tennant.
Five stars across the board - enough said.
I like kid books on occasion. Don't get into this one thinking its anything like the movie though. So long as you keep the two separate from each other its enjoyable even for adults. Very cute and adorable as well as a lot of fun.
Would you consider the audio edition of How to Ride a Dragon's Storm to be better than the print version?
Because my eyes are failing; I enjoy someone else reading to me, and if I had my druthers (which I do), I'd druther have David read to me.<br/>He's the most entertaining, you know.
What did you like best about this story?
Norbert the Nut-Job, now, King of the Hysterics.<br/><br/>He's sssooo serious and sulky. . . Lighten-up Norbert!<br/><br/>I just have a weakness for wacky inventors who are a bit eccentric, and can wheal an ax. . . That's just me.<br/>
What does David Tennant bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
His singing is: "Fabulous Darh-Link!"<br/>His voice when he sings the Viking song about a land that they are going to, AGAIN. . .And the the other song which would never,ever scare anyone " The Death Walk" it's a quaint lil' ditty.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Well, there was the issue of taking the "Slave" mark imposed upon our hero, Hiccup to prove that he would keep his promise. (As I have privy to a lot of Hiccup's doing's) This is the first time he has had to make a promise.<br/>And I was skeptical as to HOW he could keep it. <br/>Because when you make a promise, you must keep your promise. . .<br/>Or no-one will ever trust you again!
Any additional comments?
Since I got it last month I have only listened to it. . .oh, five or six times. <br/>(I'm trying to learn the words to both songs-don't cha know).

Any additional comments?
Keep them coming.
This story is very entertaining, and the narration by David Tennant is fantastic! My kids, aged 7 and 10 have listened to this a number of times over the last year, and now quote all the lines they think are funny. We all highly recommend it.
If you've made it through the previous six stories in this sereis then you know what to expect - fanciful adventures involving nearly impossible situations and memorable characters. This story is no exception and is on par with some of the better tales in the series.
What sets apart our experience with this series is the inspired performance from narrator David Tennant. He doesn't just narrate the story, he gives a rollicking performance full of energy and hilarious characterizations. My kids listen to these repeatedly and like to imitate the vocalizations and accents for their favorite characters. These stories have become a fun family experience.

I loved this book when I read it age 8.
David Tennant makes the characters spring to life when I am listening to it
I would recommend this book to anyone who has a sense of humour and is over the age of 7
Full of humor, unbelievable situations and jaw-dropping escapes. A pleasure for children and adults on a long car journey.
I liked the story about the dragons it was very exciting. It was told very well. I liked the accents of Gobber the Belch and the other characters.
It was a nice long story, very detailed, I would listen to it again.
Luke age 9
