    Classic Coming of Age Story Minus the love triangles, savior complexes, and completely stupid decisions that plague many of the YA fiction I ve readThe Dragons of this world are scattered The packs have long been broken up and devoured by the Golden One Firedrake the Dragon remembers hearing of safe place for dragons and so sets off to find it with Sorrel, his Brownie friend No one thinks he can, no one thinks he will ever come back.Firedrake meets with an orphan boy Ben of course, ther Classic Coming of Age Story Minus the love triangles, savior complexes, and completely stupid decisions that plague many of the YA fiction I ve readThe Dragons of this world are scattered The packs have long been broken up and devoured by the Golden One Firedrake the Dragon remembers hearing of safe place for dragons and so sets off to find it with Sorrel, his Brownie friend No one thinks he can, no one thinks he will ever come back.Firedrake meets with an orphan boy Ben of course, there has to be an orphan and once they pick up the homunculus, the quartet is complete Only, their journey isn t nearly as straightforward it seems and cowardly Twigleg isn t quite what he seems as well Will they find the other Dragons What if by finding them, the others become farin danger than they ever were before Be prepared for a whirlwind adventure out there full of magic, mystery and mayhem.Audiobook CommentsFunke does such a great job of bringing together elements of a great story What made this even better Read by Brendan Fraser.

    When all was still in the hall, and the only sound was the rustling of the monks robes, Firedrake cleared his throat and began to tell the story in the language of fabulous animals, the language that everyone can understand.As the moon set outside and the sun began its daily journey across the sky, he told the tale of his quest from the very beginning His words filled the hall with pictures He spoke of a clever white rat, enchanted ravens and mountain dwarves, sand elves and Dubidai As hWhen all was still in the hall, and the only sound was the rustling of the monks robes, Firedrake cleared his throat and began to tell the story in the language of fabulous animals, the language that everyone can understand.As the moon set outside and the sun began its daily journey across the sky, he told the tale of his quest from the very beginning His words filled the hall with pictures He spoke of a clever white rat, enchanted ravens and mountain dwarves, sand elves and Dubidai As he went on with his story, the basilisk fell to dust once , the blue djinn opened his thousand eyes The sea serpent swam through the waves, and the great roc bird snatched Ben away Finally, as the sun outside was sinking in the sky, Nettlebrand climbed the dragons mountain His armour melted in blue dragon fire, and a toad hopped out of his mouth Reading this book reminded me of all the adventure stories and folk tales I enjoyed reading as a child, which were full of magical beings and adventures without the stress anxiety of anything acutely tragic happening P.S I wouldn t mind having Sorrel the brownie as my spirit animal

    I was super pumped to be getting to this older MG YA title, as it sounded like the exact sort of whimsical read I like to immerse myself in, over the festive period It was just that It did have its flaws for me, but I enjoyed the adventurous story line and the humorous interaction between the characters.

    I tried very hard to get into this book, but like Ink Heart it just didn t catch me Something about the way Funke writes puts a distance between me and the story that just makes it impossible for me become fully engaged The classic fantasy archetype of friends on a quest, tons of magical creatures, etc is common and this text hardly adds anything new to the field.Funke writes with a wealth of detail that is occasionally distracting and over done Her characters feel 2D, lacking real depth and I tried very hard to get into this book, but like Ink Heart it just didn t catch me Something about the way Funke writes puts a distance between me and the story that just makes it impossible for me become fully engaged The classic fantasy archetype of friends on a quest, tons of magical creatures, etc is common and this text hardly adds anything new to the field.Funke writes with a wealth of detail that is occasionally distracting and over done Her characters feel 2D, lacking real depth and anything to set them apart I made it over a third of the way through before finally setting this one aside I just can t make myself finish the book because I really don t care about any of the characters or the ultimate outcome There s no mystery to capture me, no question that doesn t have an obvious answer and outcome Dragon Rider lacks any interesting twists or turns in the narrative as far as I can tell.I was listening to the Audiobook version of this text and the one good thing I can say is that Brendan Fraiser is an incredible narrator His voice is well modulated and he is able to do a great variety of voices with obvious relish He is the only redeeming factor I found in the book and likely the reason I stuck it out as long as I did

    Oh okay this made waysense when I figured out that the German version originally came out in 1997 If feels old in a good way Magical middle grade from a pre Harry Potter world.It s a very relaxed ride There s a quest, an orphan boy, bratty magical creatures, cool magical creatures, evil magical creatures, and conflicted magical creatures All of that feels like standard stuff today, but it s well crafted and well done overall here.

    There is a crazy freedom to this plot that reminds me of the sweet weirdness of a Pixar film It has everything from rats flying miniature biplanes to Scottish Brownies riding dragons, making this a madcap adventure But it is also the sensitive coming of age story of a boy trying to find a family.Normally, I don t like Cornelia Funke s style of writing it feels clumpy and awkward but this book was so much smoother and had adefinite style, leading me to believe that this translator was There is a crazy freedom to this plot that reminds me of the sweet weirdness of a Pixar film It has everything from rats flying miniature biplanes to Scottish Brownies riding dragons, making this a madcap adventure But it is also the sensitive coming of age story of a boy trying to find a family.Normally, I don t like Cornelia Funke s style of writing it feels clumpy and awkward but this book was so much smoother and had adefinite style, leading me to believe that this translator was infinitely superior to Funke s previous translators.This book took quest and fulfilled that word to its full capacity It was one long, side splitting adventure that kept spiraling into wilder and wilder territory It s heartfelt, magical, and utterly hilarious.I do have one caveat I beg you, on my hands and knees, if you want to properly experience this story, LISTEN TO THE AUDIO BOOK Brendan Fraser s narration is PERFECTION He even does the SOUND EFFECTS his munching is particularly amusing and it was like a wholehearted one man radio show There is a cozy, unstudied intimacy to his style you ll feel like you re on a sofa in PJ s in front of a crackling fire listening to your uncle read you a story At least, that s how I felt

    Dragon Rider is a good dragon book that doesn t delve too deeply into dragon lore, preferring to stand on it s own asof an adventure tale involving dragons The premise of the book is that the lair of a group of dragons is threatened and one of their own Firedrake is the only one willing and able to set out and explore the scary world to find a better place for his clan to live a mysterious place called the Rim of Heaven.Like many such books when the protagonist steps beyond the shelt Dragon Rider is a good dragon book that doesn t delve too deeply into dragon lore, preferring to stand on it s own asof an adventure tale involving dragons The premise of the book is that the lair of a group of dragons is threatened and one of their own Firedrake is the only one willing and able to set out and explore the scary world to find a better place for his clan to live a mysterious place called the Rim of Heaven.Like many such books when the protagonist steps beyond the sheltered confines of his her character incubator world, they quickly learn just how hard real life is In Dragon Rider this trauma is embodied in Nettlebrand, a compelling although not completely fleshed out mechanic dragon.The cast of characters includes a young orphan named Ben, who becomes the namesake dragon rider, a homunculus named Twigleg that borders on Jar Jar Binks annoyingness, and a professor of fabulous beings, interested in Firedrake for obvious reasons This book is a fun read as long as you don t take it too seriously and the 400 pages fly by as you get engrossed in the story
