Description

The story of Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III rise to fame, through his dragon-training exploits, told in Hiccup's own words by David Tennant.

Hiccup was a truly extraordinary Viking Hero, Warrior chieftain, awesome sword-fighter and amateur naturalist. He was known throughout Vikingdom as 'the Dragon Whisperer' on account of his power over these terrifying beasts. But it wasn't always like that....

Brilliant car-trip entertainment

We didn't know this book (or indeed the series) and hadn't heard a David Tennant-narrated book before, but the whole family--daughter, 7, son, 9, and parents--gives this two thumbs up. We loved it. We chose it for a long car journey, which as it turned out, was made even longer by a holiday traffic jam, and we really got lucky. The story is funny and involving and the narration is terrific, with great variety in the characterisations and beautiful delivery of the humour. I'm about to buy another in the series to store away for our next car trip, and the kids have since acquired two of Cressida Cowell's books. Highly recommended.

My Teenagers Like This

Any additional comments?

I bought this audio for my 4th grader. He received the book set of the series at Christmas and still hadn't read any of the books. Some of his friends wanted to borrow his books but I told him that he had to read them first. We compromised with my purchasing the audio version.

It took a few times of turning the audio on in the car while we were driving before he would listen to the whole story. He enjoyed the narrator, David Tenant so much that he listened to the whole audio until he was finished at midnight on the day he finally committed to listening.

He begged me for the next book and then my 2 teenage daughters wanted to know what all of the fuss was about. My daughters were laughing out loud while listening to the narrator and enjoyed it so much that they want all of the books in the series on audio.

Before my daughters started listening to the audio they said that they couldn't possibly enjoy a story they weren't reading from a book they had in their hand. David Tenant proved them wrong.

Wonderfully read!!!!

I would normally never read or listen to a book that is abridged, but David Tennant does too good a job not to listen to this version. Tennant does such a wide veriety of voices that is it never confusing on who is talking, as it is in some books.

Over all, a great story with a great reader.

Good performance, but poor levels on the recording

Any additional comments?

I enjoyed the story and the reading and the voices. I listened with my 3 year old, and we both liked it. However, it was difficult to follow because the volume levels were so widely varynig. Very loud at the intense moments, and so very quiet at the softer. I kept having to turn the volume up and down according to the situation. Frustrating. Regardless, good story, very different from the movie. Fun voices by narrator.

Excellent kids story 6-13 yrs

What made the experience of listening to How to Train Your Dragon the most enjoyable?

Interesting plot, exciting and funny, excellent delivery - accents included

What does David Tennant bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

His use of differing accents and associated attitudes reinforce the flavour of Scotland faithfully

David Tennant is fantastic!

You couldn't have found a more perfect narrator for this series. I wish it wasn't abridged, but the story still holds up. My boys really enjoyed it (as did my husband and I).

Fun story, inspired narration.

It's a fun (although familiar) story of a normal boy who overcomes the odds using his brains. But it contains Vikings and that alone gets it an additional star. My kids loved listening to this, especially the inspired narration of David Tennant.

Good Story, Disappointing narration

The story was good, but I was a little disappointed by the reading. I also didn't notice that this one was abridged until after I got it. I chose this version over the other one (which is unabridged) because of the narrator (I'm a Doctor Who fan).
You get 1 hour less content on this abridged version, and you have to deal with a very dynamic range of the narrator. Normally, a dynamic range in reading is good, but the soft parts are too soft (couldn't hear some words while riding in the car), and the loud parts were speaker rattling since we had turned it up to hear the softer parts. Overall, the first 30-40 minutes of the book are very hard to understand.

I enjoyed the overall performance, but I feel like this could have been edited a little better to make it a better listen.

As for the story, I actually liked the movie's version better than this one. My kids ask to listen to this occasionally, but they don't get into it as much since it is so hard to listen to in the car. The difference in the story line doesn't really matter to them, but it is very forgettable and not something they beg to listen to.

Rundum gelungen!

Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

Bin etwas voreingenommen, da ich ein großer Fan von David Tennant bin. Trotzdem darf es gesagt werden: Eine unterhaltsame und ehrlich gesagt auch süße Geschichte, keinesfalls nur für Kinder! Mit viel Sinn für Humor gesprochen und auch gut verständlich. (Nur das dragonese ist nicht immer ganz klar, aber das passt perfekt). Ich werde gleich weiterhören...

wonderful and amusing audiobook

I am so glad I stumbled upon this gem! I'd seen the movue years ago but had already forgotten most of it. David Tennant's voices are amazing, fit the characters perfectly and does the best Toothless voice. A nice children's book to enjoy also as an adult (which I dare say I am), very funnily written. Will listen to more by the author!

Nicht die gleiche Geschichte wie der Film!!

Würden Sie dieses Hörbuch einem Freund empfehlen? Wenn ja, was würden Sie ihm dazu sagen?

Wenn man den Film zuvor gesehen hat, muss man unbedingt betonen, dass die Geschichte von Cressida Cowell ganz anders ist. Das Cover führt total in die Irre!!
Die Macher des Films haben auf der Basis der - schönen - Bücher was ganz Eigenes gemacht, das mit persönlich besser gefällt als die Bücher.

Welches andere Buch würden Sie mit How to Train Your Dragon vergleichen? Warum?

Man kann diese Version mit den meisten anderen Jugendbüchern vergleichen, die als Basis für Filme verwendet wurden, die dann ganz anders sind als die ursprünglichen Geschichten.

Wie hat Ihnen David Tennant als Sprecher gefallen? Warum?

David Tennant ist immer cool!!! Die Stimme ist schön, als Schauspieler ist er klasse und Schottisch lässt mich immer dahinschmelzen.
