Publisher's Summary

Another Turn, and the deadly silver Threads begin falling again. So the bold dragonriders take to the air once more and their magnificent flying dragons swirl and swoop, belching flames that destroy the shimmering strands before they reach the ground.

Anne McCaffrey suggests Dragonquest should be heard after before The White Dragon.

    "Abridged is not good"

    I have read every one of Anne McAffery's Dragon riders of Pern books, multiple times. I highly reccomend the written books as the audio quality and abridged nature of this re-telling of her books left me sadly disappointed with the story. I have also purchased Dolphins of Pern, First Fall, and The Girl Who Heard Dragons, and Dragon Singer. As those ones are not abridged I can reccomend them, but you will be missing out on the background that is in the first three book. I gave this 2 stars for the story, basic as it is, is still McAffery's work. If you haven't read any of her works on Pern, please don't judge her by this paltry showing of it.

    "abridged is bad!"

    This is an abridged audiobook. That might not be so bad for other Pern books, but this is the first in the series. This is the book that lays the groundwork for the entire series, but unfortunately almost all of the groundwork is summarized in the beginning of the audiobook. I left with a feeling that I had missed a lot of the background information.

    "Great Dook Mediocre Audiobook"

    I've loved these books since I was a kid (30 years ago) and have read them all at least 20 times over the years but the audio versions of all the Pern books are probably the most lackluster things I've ever heard... If I only heard the audio version I would never pick up the actual books and would have missed out on some of the most enjoyable reading of my life. Perhaps if the readings were complete or the narrator read with some enthusiasm they would have been better accepted but as it stands I wouldn't recommend them as some of your better material.

    "Not the whole book."

    This is only a snip it of the whole book. Dragonquest the Dragon Riders of Pern is available so skip this book
