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 It is now complete, so any reviews that state it is incomplete are outdated.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."

The kids love Hiccup and Toothless...

This is just right for the kids (and Adults) for entertainment on a car journey.
Even unabridged, at a couple of hours long, it lasts long enough to fill time, but not so long that interest starts to wane.
The kids love Hiccup and Toothless, and the adults appreciate the finesse of David Tennant's reading.

So entertaining!!!!

Fantastic story from a fabulous series. Can't fault anything. David Tennant is a master performer! His accents are fabulous!!

We have driven from the Eyre Penisnsula to the Gold Coast and back and Hiccup Horrendous Haddock the third has entertained us from our 4 year old, our 9 year old and 12 year old boys to the parents!! Can't recommend it more!!
