This was a beautiful rendition of one of my favorite books. My one and only negative is the lack of continuity in pronouncing the names. I prefer Dick Hill's interpretation of N'ton (na-ton) as opposed to (in-ton). Small nit-picky issue, but it was a little distracting at first.
This book is my absolute favorite. I have read it three or four times over the years, and never tire of it, because it mirrors my own experience growing up and then coming into my own.
Great story, of course-AM is a master! But as a great cherry on top we have the narrator! I live it when you can hear the joy of the story in her voice and you just know she is feeling the plight of the protagonist along with you! No canned smiles here.

This is the second book narrated by Sally Darling. I agree she's a bit slow. So, use the speed adjustment! I listened to DragonSinger and DragonSong at 1.5X speed and felt much more engaged and energized vs listening at normal speed.
YES, the narrator, she speaks soooo slooowly, nothing about the book itself though
Hmmm, not sure, there are so many
YES, YES, YES
And I don't care, as long as they can act
I love the Harper Hall trilogy, I've loved it for close to 30 years, but I recommend you get a paper- or ebook instead of this one
I love all of Anne's dragon books. This one is set differently outside the dragon's direct influence so we get to see more of what Pern and it's people are all about.
Menolly, of course. She is an engaging character I can truly empathize with.
Sally has the perfect voice to do justice to this book. Her reading is smooth, engaging and, for the most part, her pronunciations are very good. I believe she has the wrong emphasis on a couple of the names, but considering the book she is reading, I think she does very well.
Absolutely! Esp with such good reading.
its a simple story but the main character is no pushover timid maybe but she'll fight for what she wants.
I have read this trilogy many times over, so the story was familiar and well-loved. I really enjoyed listening to it for the first time.
Even after the time had passed and I wasn't a teenager/young adult anymore, this is still a very enjoyable story. So don't hesitate to give it a try, it's not a childrens book.
Sally Darling did a very good job depicting the different characters and her voice fit the young Menolly well.
The narrator's inflection and phrasing intonation drove me crazy. I couldn't listen to her for more than 5 minutes.
