Publisher's Summary

Through no fault of his own, the once human Jim Eckert had become a dragon. Unfortunately, his beloved Angie had remained human. But in this magical land anything could happen.
To make matter worse, Angie had been taken prisoner by an evil dragon and was held captive in the impenetrable Loathly Tower. So in this land where humans were edible and beasts were magical - where spells worked and logic didn't-- Jim Eckert had a big, strange problem.

A classic brought to life

I remember reading and enjoying this when it first went into print (a little while back in the 70's) so maybe I was expecting more, and whilst it's not bad it was not what i was exactly expecting. This maybe because due to reading the series several times in the past or the narrator.

Whilst the narrator is far from bad it took me a bit to get used to him, again this might be me and not a reflection on the narrator.

This series pretty much follows the standard fantasy formula but does it very well and does deviate from that formula in a witty and irreverent and you soon find yourself transported into a new world with its own rules and characters.

I would recommend this book and series to all who enjoy a good fantasy, this is also one of Dicksons better series at least in my opinion

At long last!

I read this book way back when. I enjoyed it immensely. I was hesitant about making this purchase. After all, did I remember it as well as I thought I did. Would the reader do the audio justice. Well I could only give this book 5 stars, that is the most I could give it. The story is a good as I remember it. I have listened to it twice before writing this review. Paul Boehmer's reading was excellent. His voice is well suited for the main character added to my enjoyment. I hope the rest of the series is as good.

Another fun book ruined by the narrator

Would you try another book written by Gordon R. Dickson or narrated by Paul Boehmer?

Paul Boehmer just cant narrate. I'm going to try and stay away from books read by him. he is just poor all round. hardly any variance in tone voice or character. Also having lived in Wales for 11 years I'm insulted by his Irish accent he uses on a Welsh man and his terrible pronunciations of the welsh name.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Its hard to say, I raged so much during the book about the terrible English and Welsh accents that are 70% of the people.

What didn’t you like about Paul Boehmer’s performance?

all of the above

Was The Dragon and the George worth the listening time?

No, the book was made terrible by the narrator.

Any additional comments?

the above and above. why would any intelligent author approve of this terrible narration of their work. I cant see why people would let their work be treated like this.
