Listener Opinions

    " The dialogue for this book was really cute. The interections between the characters as a whole was excellent really. I'm a big fan of mythical creatures, it seems like forever since I've read a book about dragons. I need to read about them more often because I was just facinated. Great book anyways. Although, some events seemed more complex then they had to be. There was a huge debate on solutions to a certain problem at one point and I could think of dozens. But that's just me. "

    " I listened to the audio version with Brendan Fraser as the narrator. He is a true talent for this bringing each character to life. I think it made all the difference in the world as to how I was pulled into the story. Colorful characters and a fast moving plot weaved by Funke. It is meant more for a younger audience but is a fun story. All the characters equally contributed to the outcome. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christianne | 2/7/2014

    " A touching friendship! Loved it! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Wiley | 2/3/2014

    " Honestly, I liked Igraine the Brave much more than I liked Dragon Rider. We read it aloud together. The plot was very slow-moving and lacked development in some areas. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cara | 1/22/2014

    " listened to this audiobook in car read by brendan fraser. i really enjoyed his voices of the characeters. i probably paid more attention to that than the actual story (that's why i gave it a 3 instead of a 2). i love dragon stories, so it was a really fun for me. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andrew | 1/15/2014

    " The book was really good it was really fun because of all the different kinds of characters working together and how it gave imagination a twist. The topic of the book was really interesting about how the golden dragon wants to kill all the silver dragons. It kind of reminds me of the wizard of oz because they meet a lot of characters on the way. It is also cool that a boy and a silver dragon can change so many things by making them right and destroying the golden dragon "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mason Archibald | 1/14/2014

    " When I read this in elementary school, I would have shit my pants and given it a six and a half stars, but now I see that the writing is poor and boring and bleh. Read it when you're little and let it remain awesome in your head. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sara Zuwiyya | 1/10/2014

    " I had to abandon it. I felt guilty but it was just too boring to read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bree | 1/9/2014

    " I loved this book it was enchanting and a breath of fresh air I'm so happy to have read this book. It was an exciting and whimsical plot that I will always remember. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rashmi | 11/30/2013

    " The book is simple, maybe a little too simple but yet enjoyable. It serves well as light reading and you can finish the book very fast. All in all it was a good book to read when you do not want to think at all! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kyrie | 11/28/2013

    " I loved this story about a boy and a dragon and a brownie trying to find a place where dragons can live in peace. It was cute. I want a flying dragon! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Danica Page (One Page at a Time) | 9/12/2013

    " This book is cute and enjoyable. It is definetly a light read, but I did enjoy it. The plot is enthralling and it is about dragons that is always a plus. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda | 2/17/2013

    " My 9 year old checked this out from her classroom library and told me it was so good and I just had to read it. Definitely an enjoyable and exciting story for grade schoolers who love stories with magical creatures and dragon adventures! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Denise | 1/22/2013

    " So good! The kids and I took a long time to get through this book but we all loved it. I was impressed that the story really held their attention while at the same time using challenging vocabulary (something that is sometimes lacking in adventure books). "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Abby | 7/14/2012

    " A boy, a dragon, a brownie, talking rats, fairies, adventure. I can understand why this is some of my kids' favorite book. If this had been out when I was a kid it would have been one of mine. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alysta | 7/10/2012

    " One of my favourite book as a child. I finished this in less than a day, reading with a study lamp when my sisters were asleep. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 MaryAlice | 3/31/2012

    " Have you ever read a book that made you want to be in the story? That's how this book made me feel years ago when I read it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Phoebe | 11/2/2011

    " This is the book of my childhood, the reason I even got into reading. Thank you Cornelia Funke. Thank you. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Theresa | 9/13/2011

    " an odd story, very different and hard to follow "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jairin | 6/28/2011

    " This book is worth reading but is very slow at some places. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brenna | 6/24/2011

    " Hmm... It was okay. I think the main reason why I didn't like this book very well is because I just don't like Funke's style of writing. The words seem so plain at times and don't flow very well. Maybe I'm just too picky about that sort of thing, because my sister liked it alot! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hannah | 6/19/2011
