I read this book and thought it was just OK. It thought it was way too long, over 400 pages!

Dear Emily,
Hello and welcome! I'm sorry that you didn't enjoy "Dragon Rider" as much as I did. I agree; it was a long story, but the ending was definitely worth it! Although I found it an easy read, those who don't like long books may not enjoy it as much as I.
Happy reading,
~~Bookworm~~

I love Cornelia Funke, and I bought this book a while back. It's sitting on my shelf right now, brand new and unread still, next to Inkheart and Inkspell. I really need to pick it up...

Emily: All of her books are long! That's why I luff them. ^^
