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 It is now complete, so any reviews that state it is incomplete are outdated.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

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.

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.
