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.

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.

Refreshing, with a questionable performance

What did you love best about The Dragon and the George?

The characters

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Dragon and the George?

The banter between Aaragh and Sir Brian

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

He attempts to have specific voices for some characters, but as the story progresses, he appears to either give up on some characters and make them sound like some others.... or wasn't interested in giving specific characters specific voices from the beginning. It does break immersion slightly and sometimes it makes it more difficult to remember who is talking to whom.

Any additional comments?

This book is so far unlike most young adult fantasy book series I have read and that is refreshing to me. I mean, where else do you get a story of an American trapped in the body of a not too bright Dragon with companions of a Talking Pragmatic Giant "English" Wolf(I keep imagining a top hat and a monocle even though the character obviously doesn't wear such things), the stereotypical honorable but poor Knight, and a Robin hood like fellow

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
