Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
I read almost this whole series when I was younger and I really only liked this book and the prequel Dragondawn, the rest of the series was okay but when I decided to listen to them again I decided only to read those two books especially since Dragonflight was on a daily sale way back when. Anne McCafferty has created a great fantasy world and completely different from anything else I have read in this genre. I love the dragons and I love the strong will of the heroine and the fact that the hero would do anything to save his world even if nobody else believed him. Narrator does a good job.

This book was very hard to follow... direction and editing were terrible.
something that doesnt sound like it was recorded in the 60's on failing analog equipment.
Dick Hill is one of the best narrators in the world... but the direction and editing of this book is what ruined it. I do not blame Mr Hill at all for this atrocity. It was extremely difficult to follow and seemed like it was just all jammed together. The quality is terrible too... I am used to books like Rhyria Revelations ... so this book was just a bad experience all the way around. I even restarted this book like 3 times in hopes to be able to grasp it, but that never happened, and finally, the book just ended...
I dont know how to answer this one.... the story was so hard to follow, I am not sure who was who and who was doing what...
This book needs to be completely redone.
OH.YEAH BECAUSE IT IS A TRULY INNOVATIVE STORY WHOSE CHARACTERS LIVE ON.
THE MASTERHARPERS DEFENSE OF F'LAR TO THE LORD HOLDERS.
SO MANY TO CHOOSE FROM, CAN'T DECIDE
YES, I DID IN FACT STAY UP ALL NIGHT
I FIRST READ THIS OVER 20 YEARS AGO, AND I STILL REMEMBERED ALL THE CHARACTERS AND STORYLINE. THIS SERIES IS LIKE THE WIZARD OF OZ , OR LORD OF THE RINGS AND STAR TREK, TIMELESS.
This book started slow and sped up unexpectedly. It left me wanting more. Can't wait to see what the Dragon Men do next. We get to see the effect of a culture's lost history, and watch it get rediscovered. So many surprises await us in this book.
It's been about 15 years since I first read this book and I'm glad to see it wasn't clouded by nostalgia. Reading was solid, story was engaging, would recommend to any fantasy fan. And I still wish I was a Dragonrider....
excellent narration. Great use of voice changes and inflection. I would deffinatly listen to him again.
The narrator makes too many extraneous noises (swallowing, some weird "licking" noise), distracting from the story.
It's a Pern classic.
Better performance overall. Honestly a different narrator would have been better.
Even with the sub-par narration, it's a lovely story.
Comic book fan, Ex Queen, Current Countess, lover of Pern and rhinestones.
this story opened my eyes to Sci fi as a child. today it's still as wonderful and unique as it always has been.
