This is not about the contents of the book, but about the Kindle version of it. The letters are dismally small, even with glasses I can't read them and the function for enlarging letters is off. You can enlarge the page as a picture, but then you have to move the screen along every line which is uncomfortable to read and a no go with a touch screen.
With the series you should continue. I really enjoyed this book. In fact, I think it's better than the movie!

I like how there is nothing that makes you think: "Hey! That couldn't happen to Y because then X would just swoop in and do this or that." You know what I mean?
Instead everything that is laid out at the beginning fits with everything else in the end, like: "No, X had to go to that other place in order to that thing that let to the incident that shaped the circumstances for Y. Making it completely natural that Y gets out of a certain predicament with the help of this and that". This is not a weird retelling of events from the book. I am just trying to explain myself and doing a horrible job at it. :S :P
Some spoilers ahoy!
In addition to being awesome, this book also tries to teach us/kids that people are usually bad for a reason and that they can be good if given the chance, and it does a wonderful job of it, if somewhat sad. I never thought I would cheer for Snotlout. And feel so sorry for him. And MISS him, even.
I can really recommend this book, along with all the others in the series, of course.
I'm only ready the first few chapters and already that has me hooked for more. It makes me sad to know there is only one last book left before the series comes to an end but I am happy to have been through the ride and discovering such a fun and heartwarming book series. If it weren't for these books we wouldn't even have the fantastic film series DreamWorks has been making so thanks to Cressdia Cowell (and Hiccup) for giving us the grand adventures both on paper and on the silver screen.
