    Story
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    This book is fine, although it was written in the very begining of the 20th century.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The Grand Expanse.


    Any additional comments?

    Everything is fine about this book, but do NOT listen to the begining...whoever wrote that drivel was about 10 years old and probably never lived a day without a computer and TV blaring in the background. Moreover, uses words that are large just because he/she can. Total idiocy, with no redeeming features whatsoever. MOST IMPORTANT...I LOVED THE BOOK!!!!

    Never had there been as close a bonding as the one that existed between the daring and adventurous young Lord Jaxom and his extraordinary white dragon, Ruth. Pure white and incredibly agile, Ruth was a dragon of many talents, though almost everyone on Pern thought he was a runt that would never amount to anything. But Jaxom knew better.

    When Jaxom retrieves the egg stolen, and returns it.


    What about Dick Hill’s performance did you like?

    Consistency with other performances.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Both, and that is what makes a good book and performance.

    On the beautiful planet Pern, colonized for centuries, Land Holders and Craftsmen have traditionally tithed food and supplies to the dragonweyrs to which they are bound. In times past, the mighty telepathic dragons and their riders were the only protection from the dreaded, life-threatening Thread. Now those times may be returning....
