This was a fun read. Very different from the movie but still a totally amazing story. I was very happy to hear David Tennant doing the voices, he did a great job. ( )

O read with her Dad and then watched the movie which other than character names are pretty much two different stories. But she enjoyed both. ( )

I never even knew their was a book until way after I watched the first two movies when my friend told me about them. Intrigued by this development, I proceeded to read the first book, and then devoured the next ten books. I instantly fell in love with the books. The books and movies are so vastly different that I simply view them as two entirely unrelated stories, and I find that personally I am perfectly happy with this. The books are absolutely wonderful. This first book was hysterical and exciting. The dragons are amazing. I have always wanted my own dragon (ever since reading Eragon) and this book made me view dragons in a different light. They are fascinating and amazingly heroic creatures that I feel every budding hero should have as a friend. Toothless brings out the best in Hiccup, starting him on his journey to become the greatest hero the Barbaric Archipelago has ever seen. ( )
