Gelesen von David Wales

(4,412 Sterne; 120 Bewertungen)

A novel, The Dragon of Wantley, was written by Owen Wister (best known as the author of The Virginian) in 1892. Published by Lipincott Press, the story is a comic "burlesque" (in the author's words), concerning the "true" story of the Dragon. It is a romantic story set at Christmastime in the early 13th century. The book was a surprise success, going through four editions over the next ten years. This is the 1895 edition.

Great Dragon

(4 Sterne)

Good book. I like it how the reader changes his voice for each character. The bad part is that the knight should not act like he’s 11. He should be a grown man. Well behaved and trustworthy

The Perfect Story

(5 Sterne)

I really enjoyed this book. It is just perfect. Concise, humorous, and it has a bit of mystery. It reminded me of David and the Phoenix by Edward Ormondroyd in its tone.

FUNTASTIC

(5 Sterne)

As clever a story as one could wish. It is fun without being predictable. Gilbert and Sullivan could certainly have used it for a libretto. David Wales was the perfect narrator for this one.

hilarious and cozy!

I liked it a lot, but wont give 5* because the narrator could try to read different characters with slightly different "voices".
