Then, some of the colonists noticed that the small, dragon-like lizards that inhabited their new world were joining the fight against Thread, breathing fire on it and teleporting to safety. If only, they thought, the dragonets were big enough for a human to ride and intelligent enough to work as a team with a rider...
And so they set their most talented geneticist to work to create the creatures Pern so desperately needed - Dragons!

Having read the Pern series novels by Anne McCaffrey, I really appreciate the ground work that Ms. McCaffrey laid down in this book. So many plots, so much time to spawn from such a story. It's the craft of writing a wonderful story that lives on with each book. I am amazed that this series is as wonderful for Adults as it is for Young Adults.
Not sure this is the most memorable moment, but it seems to me that Avril and avarice are awfully close in their core meaning...
All the characters that Dick Hill portrayed were good. I think I would've have liked a female voice, but Mr. Hill's narration and ability to give the characters their own 'voice' changed my mind. I especially like how he portrays a voice in loud shouting or exasperation. Nicely done.
I love Dick Hill as the narrator he really shows off his talent in this book. The story is Great and the characters are diverse, I really cant say enough about this read it was like rediscovering pern all over again, If you have read the earlier books it will only make this book all the much better. No one can do it like Dick Hill can wish he had been used in all the Dragon riders of pern series. Honestly he could read gobbledy gook and make it sound like sweet poetry. YOU WILL BE DISSAPPOINTED IF YOU MISS THIS ONE.
Details, Anne is not afraid to use other opinions in her stories.
All the characters make a story but if I had to choose I would have to pick Benson. He kept the people together.
He bought the book alive. Before I listened to the book, years earlier I read the book.
It made me dream. Dreams are the sustenance of people's souls.
Anne McCaffrey is a wonderful writer and her Dragon Rider series is the best books on the market.
it depends i have read the book several times but my time is now so busy i dont read much its eaiser to down ladto my phone an listen when i can
its easy listing
he trys to make the book cometo life for the listner
read the books first then try the audio you wont regret it
I enjoy this time and consider it well spent exercising my imagination. I now have these other worlds to tell you about. I have value.
Starting a little different, this story allows you many opportunities to discover where this people came from and how they came to be the dragonriders. It was a fun read and a little refreshing at this point of the series. As always if you let your imagination try to picture happenings in your minds eye,you will get a real suprise. I actually got involved to the point of feeling bad during sorrowful times and cheering during the successes. Anne did it again. Read it.
I am a person that tries and get through 1 book a week if possible. I am Dyslexic so this is really the only way I can get through a book. I have listened to more book in a year than I read my first 20 years of my life. I found the joy of audio books in the early 2000 and have been a audible customer since 2000 or 2001. I have over 490 books in 2 different accounts and listened to 90%.
Good book started slow
Dragon and rider dieting together? Wasn't what you were expecting
