      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 theGolden 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 h [...]

      I think I would've enjoyed this when I was 12? But now? It didn't do anything for me AT ALL. I wanted to read it because a) I love Inkheart and b) I love dragons. WHAT COULD GO WRONG?! (Everything, apparently.)Here's what didn't work for me:+ There are many talking animalsd I'm just not such a big fan of talking animals! SORRY. (But, like I said, this is adult-reader-me speaking, whereas when I was a kid I probably wouldn't have minded.) I had trouble enough with Gregor the Overlander and the ta [...]

      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 [...]

      Dragon Rider is a good dragon book that doesn't delve too deeply into dragon lore, preferring to stand on it's own as more of 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 [...]

      This book is very well written is one of my favorite books written Cornelia Funke. My favorite thing about this book is that it actually feels like you are in the story and one of the many companions.This book is about a dragon and a brownie (a lager squirle like creature) who set out to find a place where the other dragons can hide. This book rises and falls so many times you can't even tell where the rising and the falling actionis. Also, my favorite thing about this book is that it is about d [...]

      Firedrake is a dragon with silvery scales that glint in the moonlight. Sorrel is a brownie with sulfur-yellow fur who loves to eat mushrooms. Ben is an orphan boy with a kind heart. Together they embark on a high-stakes adventure around the world. Dragon Rider is a charming tale that's sure to stir the imagination of young minds. On a technical note: There's an awful lot of coincidences in this book, as well as several other dated approaches to storytelling (forgivable, since the book was first [...]

      I think it's important to note that I listened to the audio version of this book because it is, without a doubt, the reason I disliked it so much. Funke's story seems pretty good, and if I had read it, I imagine it would have been closer to 3 or 4 stars. However, it must be said that the narrator Brendon Fraser is, unequivocally, the worst narrator I have ever heard in the 150+ audio books I have listened to over the last few years. Here are just a few examples of why he is so bad:1. He smacks h [...]

      I gave this three stars, because I personally wanted to give it two, but I think it probably deserves four. I know that for other people, especially the audience it's actually intended for (children/YA), it would be a great book, and they'd love it. I didn't really get into the book, and it's not the author's fault at all. It was just too easy a book for me to really enjoy. The bad guy was really bad, the good guys were really good, and even the character who switched sides made all the right de [...]

      I read this ages ago and loved it, and then recently listened to it with my kids. The narration is by Brendan Fraser and is awesome! I don't know if Cornelia Funke picked him to be Inkheart before or after he had narrated this book, but I can see why she did. He's amazing. Oh yeah, the story is good too. :) It's a nice journey, with fun characters and a bit of mystery and suspense. Great for kids in the 6-8 range, whereas the Inkheart books are really for a slightly older crowd.

      This book is hysterical! If you are going to read it, get it on CD narrated by Brenden Fraser (I think that's how you spell his name). He does all the noises and sound effects and I guarentee you will have at least a few good laughs. If you don't well then you don't.

      Ich habe den Jungs vor der langen Autofahrt E-Book + Hörbuch gekauft. beste Investition!!! 10 Stunden Autofahrt ohne Beschwerden, sie saßen nur hinten mit ihren Kopfhörer und es herrschte himmlische Ruhe. Da musste ich dann auch herausfinden, was es damit auf sich hat - gute, spannende Geschichte, liebevoll erzählt, nicht so aufregend, dass sie nicht mehr schlafen können, aber so, dass sie gar nicht mehr damit aufhören konnten. und wie gesagt: durchaus auch nett zu lesen für Erwachsene

      Dragon Rider was an out of this world read. Despite the fact that it was meant for a younger crowd, I enjoyed every minute. This 523 paged story takes you on a classical adventure in which contain mythical creatures such as Dragons, dwarves, elves, and sea-serpents, and many more. Cornelia Funke puts the reader into the story and tells it on the back of a dragon named Firedrake with passengers named Ben, and Sorrel, and Twigleg. These heroes must help Firedrake find a new place for him and the r [...]

      Human beings, fabulous creatures, myth and fairy tale, reality, legends coming true---this is what you get when you take a dragon in search of a new, yet ancient, home and boy who never had home or family, pair them up with a forest brownie and send then in search of the Rim of Heaven.I have to say, for all the fantasy I've read, I ran across some creatures here that I didn't recall having heard of. And each facbulous creature is fascinating in its own right, each with their own quirks and stori [...]

      The story is wonderful. It's about a young dragon who sets out to find a new home for his people, because humans are trying to tear up the valley they live in. But he's not looking for just any place -- he's looking for the mythical Rim of Heaven, which so many say doesn't exist.The book is absolutely hilarious. My family was probably wondering why I kept bursting out laughing seemingly at nothing, since they couldn't hear what I was listening to on my iPod. It also looks at the issue of racism [...]

      What a wonderful way to "read" this novel! Brendan Fraser is a reader with entertaining voices for each of the characters which really helped with following along on this fun adventure.

      The listening library version of this is amazing! Brendan Fraser is the reader, and I never would have guessed that he could be as engaging with character voices as he was.

      Awesome read though I've heard the audio version with Brendan Frasier is well worth the price! My 9 yr old and 4 yr old both kept asking for more. Totally loved this book!

      Drachen, Kobolde, Menschen, sprechende Tiere, Dschinns, Zwerge, ein Homunkulus und eine abenteuerliche Reise. Dieses leichte Jugendbuch ist ganz zauberhaft und eine ideale Feierabendlektüre über Mut, Zusammenhalt, Zugehörigkeit und Abbau von Vorurteilen. Der zweite Teil wird nicht lange auf sich warten lassen.
