I have been reading these books since book one but thanks to lack of time I thought I would give the audio book a try for this one. I was not disappointed. David Tennants was a joy to listen to and the accents were brilliant.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Even just reading these books I have found that they have quite an emotional impact on me. Listening to them seemed to make it all the stronger.

What did you like most about How to Steal a Dragon's Sword?

While our children have outgrown the books for now, my wife and I are still listening. The books are really wonderful and David Tennant brings the stories to life in a way that is rather magical. I would particularly recommend for long car journeys.
