This book started slow and sped up unexpectedly. It left me wanting more. Can't wait to see what the Dragon Men do next. We get to see the effect of a culture's lost history, and watch it get rediscovered. So many surprises await us in this book.
It's been about 15 years since I first read this book and I'm glad to see it wasn't clouded by nostalgia. Reading was solid, story was engaging, would recommend to any fantasy fan. And I still wish I was a Dragonrider....
excellent narration. Great use of voice changes and inflection. I would deffinatly listen to him again.
The narrator makes too many extraneous noises (swallowing, some weird "licking" noise), distracting from the story.
It's a Pern classic.
Better performance overall. Honestly a different narrator would have been better.
Even with the sub-par narration, it's a lovely story.
Comic book fan, Ex Queen, Current Countess, lover of Pern and rhinestones.
this story opened my eyes to Sci fi as a child. today it's still as wonderful and unique as it always has been.
This has always been my favorite Anne McCaffrey book, it had been a while since I read it and listening to it reminded me why I love it so much. The narrator is fantastic and I actually got a little depressed when it ended. I know I will listen to this one over and over agin.
