Publisher's Summary

On the beautiful planet Pern, colonized for centuries, Land Holders and Craftsmen have traditionally tithed food and supplies to the dragonweyrs to which they are bound. In times past, the mighty telepathic dragons and their riders were the only protection from the dreaded, life-threatening Thread.

But it has been over 400 years since the last Threadfall, and some people have come to doubt that the menace will every strike again. But F'lar, rider of Pern's greatest bronze dragon, has no such illusions. The Red Star is near; Thread will fall soon.

Book another flight with the Dragonriders of Pern.

©1968 Anne McCaffrey; (P)1993 Brilliance Audio

    "Let's Fly Between"

    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.

    "Entranced me fully."

    I listened to it with my fiance and children in a 10 hour car ride. It kept all of our attention the entire drive.

    "Just as good as I remembered"

    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....

    Story
    "The Performance Mars the Story"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The narrator makes too many extraneous noises (swallowing, some weird "licking" noise), distracting from the story.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It's a Pern classic.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Better performance overall. Honestly a different narrator would have been better.


    Was Dragonflight worth the listening time?

    Even with the sub-par narration, it's a lovely story.

    "Love this book!"

    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.

    "incredible series"

    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.
