Beschreibung von Audible

Why You Should Download This Audiobook: With the publication of the English translation of The Thief Lord, German author Cornelia Funke burst onto US and UK best seller lists. In the #1 best seller Dragon Rider, she weaves a magical tale of a boy named Ben, a brownie named Sorrel, and Firedrake the dragon. Actor Brendan Fraser's narration is perfect for listeners aged 8+.

Inhaltsangabe

Firedrake, a young dragon, receives a frightening warning one night: Humans are planning to destroy the valley in which he lives! All the dragons must flee. Their only refuge is a place above the clouds called the Rim of Heaven, which may not even exist.

Firedrake boldly volunteers to go ahead first. As he embarks on his journey, he meets Ben, a runaway boy. Together, the boy and dragon make their way toward the Rim of Heaven, all the while running a step ahead of Nettlebrand, a monster who will stop at nothing to hunt down Firedrake. Their quest will truly become an adventure like no other.

Modern Fairy Tale

Not only is this an excellent and poetic translation, but it is also total enjoyment by the suberb reading. Brendan Fraser has so many voices, dialects, not to talk about the noises he can make. One could easily get addicted to his masterly reading.

Fantastic Speaker

The story is not just read by the speaker. He makes it come alive! The characters can easily be recognised by the different voices he gives them. He makes pauses at the right time, rises his voice, whisperes, etc.Fantastic experience!

H I G H L Y recommended!

When my 8-year old son could not put his iPod down while listening to this book, I started to think it was like TV - he was just spacing out into another world. So I decided to listen to it myself.

I could not put it down.

Not only does Brendan Fraser have the voice to make a dead person pay attention, but the various accents, personalities and sound effects are a feat in-and-of themselves. I, lke my son, could not put the iPod down, and began to look for things to do just so I could listen longer. (ironing, cleaning windows -- my home has never been so clean . . . )

My son is bilingual and can read German fluently, making The Dragon Rider a great book for him, but as he cannot read English nearly as well, the Audible book is a wonderful compliment to the original version by C. Funke.

Although this book is recommended for children at 10 years of age, I would say an 8 or 9 year old would also have a spendid time with it. Especially for kids who aren't soooooooo interested in books, etc., this book is a wonderful beginning for them.

Genial!

Nie zuvor habe ich ein derart gutes Hörbuch gehört. Ich bin wirklich begeistert und kann es nur jedem wärmstens empfehlen, der Lust auf ein englisches Hörbuch-Märchen hat. Der Sprecher liest so wundervoll, dass man wirklich meint, jeder Charakter sei von einem anderen Sprecher gesprochen worden. Genial!

Wonderful!!

Eine wunderschöne Geschichte. Meine Tochter liest gerade das Buch und da habe ich mir das Hörbuch gegönnt. Hoffe, daß meine Tochter diese englische Version sich auch anhört. Der Sprecher ist einfach genial! Gar nicht langweilig. Man muss jedoch schon gut Englisch können um alles zu verstehen.
