"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

"A narrative rich in dragon muck... genuinely fierce [and] intelligent."―Kirkus
"...This is a goofy and exciting tale of an underdog who proves that brains can be just as important as brawn. Kids will hoot at the ridiculous names and sympathize with Hiccup's exasperation with his truly obstinate but strangely lovable dragon. A delightful read."―School Library Journal
"This hilarious farce will appeal to heroic fiction fans."―Booklist

Now, I have watched movies before that I enjoyed, only to have the movie crushed by reading the book, as there was so much that was different that it ruined the movie for me. That is not the case with How to Train Your Dragon, at least for me. I find the two stories, while completely different, are both very well done. I even started to record myself reading this to my son, and wife, as they were enjoying the different voices I used for the characters. Of course, I ask myself why I bother to record myself, since there is no way I can compete with the audiobooks that David Tennant recorded...
Anyway, this is definitely worth the read, and the listen, if you like audiobooks. I look forward to reading the next book to my son and wife soon.
Especially recommended for those who enjoy British lit like Harry Potter, Roald Dahl or Terry Pratchett, but really for anyone who likes stories and storytelling.
Starting reading the first book, I have to say, I was first disappointed, because the books have nothing really, to do with the movies. Well, the movies were only based on the books and were inspired by the books. The movies are not like the books.
But reading on, I started really to like the books. I am starting to read the second and will be very interesting, how Hiccup and Toothless are going on. I loved how Toothless saved Hiccup from certain eating up by the huge sea-dragon.
Well done Cressida. Have learned to love the books.
