Interesting, very quick read. ( )

The only reason I downloaded this book is because it is narrated by David Tennant. I couldn't help myself I just had to listen to Tennant read. I expected the book to resemble the movie - which I loved. But I was wrong. This story was very different than the movie and way fun. Tennant is an amazing narrator and he brought the story to life. And since the story was so different from the movie, it was all new to me. I highly recommend this audiobook if you have young kids or if you're a Tennant fan. ( )

Listened to the audiobook, narrated by DAVID TENNANT, it was a fantastic experience, completely different from the movie and extremely funny and interesting ( )

The book isn't as I expected based on seeing the movie, but we enjoyed it. There are several laugh out loud moments. The scary, intense moments are often broken quickly with humor.
This is about a group of viking boys and brains winning over brawn. There are female characters in the book, mostly dragons. I was a little surprised by this, but liked that there were strong dragon female characters. ( )
