    The beautiful planet Pern seemed a paradise to its new colonists - until unimaginable terror turned it into hell. Suddenly deadly spores were falling like silver threads from the sky, devouring everything - and everyone - in their path. It began to look as if the colony, cut off from Earth and lacking the resources to combat the menace, was doomed.

    What made the experience of listening to Dragonsdawn the most enjoyable?

    Details, Anne is not afraid to use other opinions in her stories.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    All the characters make a story but if I had to choose I would have to pick Benson. He kept the people together.


    What does Dick Hill bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He bought the book alive. Before I listened to the book, years earlier I read the book.


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

    It made me dream. Dreams are the sustenance of people's souls.


    Any additional comments?

    Anne McCaffrey is a wonderful writer and her Dragon Rider series is the best books on the market.

    Like every other hobbit, Bilbo Baggins likes nothing better than a quiet evening in his snug hole in the ground, dining on a sumptuous dinner in front of a fire. But when a wandering wizard captivates him with tales of the unknown, Bilbo becomes restless. Soon he joins the wizard’s band of homeless dwarves in search of giant spiders, savage wolves, and other dangers. Bilbo quickly tires of the quest for adventure and longs for the security of his familiar home. But before he can return to his life of comfort, he must face the greatest threat of all.
