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.
SERIOUSLY!!!!WTH?!!!!! You have one of the greatest book series of all time and you let THIS guy narrate?! I have heard text books narrated with more feeling and eloquence that this. I could not even make it through the first chapter. Overwhelmingly disappointed.
While I would say this is solid and well written fantasy, I have heard some say this is sexist. Perhaps for our time it is. Ironically in its time it was on the radical edge of feminism. Times have changed, but I feel the core of this story is still a good one and worth listening to.
Ruined Flar's voice!
I've read this book many times, as well as the rest of the Pern books. I enjoy the way the character's interact, and problem solve. Their dragons as well.
Voice changes don't usually bother me so much, but Flar's voice just blew the whole character I had visualized. So old and gruff! It was like hearing Gandalf when you were expecting Mr. Darcy.
It would have been.
I'll probably never finish it, or get any more narrated by that guy.
