Thrilling, Imaginative, story for many ages.

I read this to my 6 year old boy who is very sensitive. Both he and I thoroughly enjoyed the story! It was an absorbing story and enough going on to hold a 6 year olds attention. Yet it was not too scary. Nobody dies, or gets hurt. Not even the villain! Yet it is an adventurous story filled with all sorts of magical creatures. The characters are well developed. In addition to very strong imagery with many creative similes and metaphors,

    Lacks Interest

    This book was boring in every possible way. The theme was rather childish, and I have seen it advertised as a 'young adult' book. In no way did it capture my attention or interest. This title is forgettable.

    Poor

    This book was very poorly written. I thought it was boring in every way and put it down after the first chapter. :(

    Meh

    This book was utterly boring. It was just a stupid, unexciting book about a boy and a dragon. I would never recommend it to anyone, ever.

    BOO!

    I hate this book. It does not keep you entertained at all. I was starting to read all kinds of dragon books then I read this one and I stopped reading them beacuse I didn't want to be so dissipointed agian. It is very kiddish. Eragon is much better.

    A reviewer

    I myself felt that this book lacked a firm structure accompanied by the vast majority of fantasy books I've read. It has its perks, I'll admit, but it takes place during a relatively current time- tragically, yes. It is as if swords, noble steeds, and courage are replaced by laptops, cars, and the Internet. It also consists of random gibberish, such as something called a brownie that looks like a deformed cat. I don't know about you, but it makes me want to grab an actual brownie rather than the book itself.

    Dragon Rider

    this is the worstest book i've ever read and it is so kiddish its not even funny! i do NOT recommend this at all whatsoever! its awful and pointless. And the characters are bad ideas too. Firedrake is a lazy, scaredy-cat dragon who knows nothing. Sorrel is kiddish and is ubsessed with mushrooms. Ben is a creepy little boy, he freaks me out big time!! twigleg makes no sense when he talks and that's about all i can remember. do NOT, i repeat do NOT ever read this book!!
