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 is not the first time I've read the dragonriders of Pern series. But it is the first time I've read it through Audible. I highly recommend it if you have to commute.
My only complaint is it was to short! I will definitely start working through this series again! Dick Hill is a marvelous performer. I just can't say enough good about this story!
This has been one of my favorites since I was a child, so I purchased the audio version when I purchased the Kindle so that I could retire my worn out paperback. The writing & the story are all as I remember them, the only the lacking is the narrator. I simply do not care for him although I will most certainly listen to this again and probably purchase the other books in the series. It sounds as though it took many, many takes for him to even get what we hear. Narration could be better, other than that 👍👍
The author is very good at creating worlds that you want to visit.
The well thought out back story as well as the characters that draw you in to their world.
There are so many wonderful scenes that it is very hard to pick one favorite. The descriptions of riding 'adragonback' put you there.
The next level of science fiction.
This one is fun to listen to over and over . You'll pick up on things for large in the series . The narrator does and excellent job . Give it a listen , you'll be hooked .
I love the story, and of course the dragons, but...
The performance sounded a bit mechanical. Took me a while to get used to it.
