Not Unabridged

What made the experience of listening to A Hero's Guide to Deadly Dragons the most enjoyable?

Although David Tennant was marvelous once again, and Cressida Cowell's story was as engaging as ever, it was dissappointing that this was *not* an unabridged version. The end seemed very sudden, which was explained when we discovered that the book goes on further. I don't know what else might have been missed.

Fixed! The end of the book is now included

Have you listened to any of David Tennant’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Everything David Tennant does is marvelous (I've listened to everything available on Audible). This recording is no exception. I have a hard time waiting for hm to record each book in the Cowell series as it gets published.

Any additional comments?

This audiobook has been missing the last 20 minutes for a long time. It is now complete, so any reviews that state it is incomplete are outdated. I love this series by Cressida Cowell. The books are hilarious, exciting and touching. It is also worth noting that the music in the entire series is really good, which is not something I expect from audiobooks. I recommend buying all of them! They just get better and better. Cowell's website gives the order of the books, starting with "How to Train Your Dragon."

Where is the ending?

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend the book, but not the audible version. The book is missing the ending.

Any additional comments?

Will you please update this download to include the ending!

Left Hanging

Any additional comments?

My son loves all the How to Train Your Dragon books, but with this one he was left hanging because chapter 19 was left out of the reading. This makes a very BIG difference especially due to the fact that he was following along with the actual book.

This series has me hooked!

I really am enjoying this series! It’s very witty and has me in stitches and sitting at the edge of my seat! I can’t wait for my nephews to visit again! I am looking forward to diving into these stories with them and relive the adventures again!

Silly, good time!

I cannot say enough good things about this series! I envy Cressida Cowell because she is having a great time doing what she loves. These books are over the top silly and highly entertaining. David Tennant is the perfect narrator for these books.

Adorable

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.

Delighfully dragony!

Would you listen to A Hero's Guide to Deadly Dragons again? Why?

I love the sound of David Tennant's voice. He brings everything to life with humour and respect.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Toothless has a lot of personality, but I'd have to go with Kamikaze.

Which scene was your favorite?

The fight with the Hairy Scary Librarian was well-written and nicely executed.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I'd love to have read it all in one sitting, but we use these as entertainment on longer drives, and this took two longer drives to get it done.

Any additional comments?

More Tennant. All fantastic.

Fun to listen to

Any additional comments?

This book is equal to the other books in the Dragon series. They are all awesome and really fun to listen to, The narration is wonderful with great voices so you really can believe the whole cast is there. This was the 4th book in the series I listened to and have the other 4 on my ipod now waiting for the chance to escape into my head.

I Highly recommend this series to anyone young at heart.
