Read this many years ago, and have returned to the Pern books off and on through the years. It was a pleasure to listen to. The voice of the dragons is well done. My overall familiarity with the series has muddled my memory of what happened in this book, so it was nearly like a first-time read. There was a little less depth of story and culture than I remembered, but this likely is more due to the accumulated sense of the Pern culture and history in my memory, than a fault of this particular book. A wonderful concept in the world of science fiction / fantasy, and I recommend it if you have not yet "been to Pern." It is a good production of a now-classic for those who have. Enjoy!
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.
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.
Sci-fi, detective, cozy. Only give 5s to those books I think stand above the rest. 4 is a good solid book. 3 is average, nothing special.
I read this book 25+ years ago. I burnt out on the series after about six or seven books. However, some other Anne McCaffrey's books are some of my favorite books (Audible only has abridged versions of the others which I will not listen to, sigh). I like her writing style even though this particular story was a bit simplistic, and easy to guess the end, it was enjoyable.

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.
I read this entire series back in the 80s and 90s, at each subsequent book. It was wonderful to relive it again, as my son will be reading Dragonsong for a class assignment. Wanted to enjoy the series with him.
