What the Critics Say

"The transformation of Menolly from a terrified outcast to a woman secure within herself is skillfully handled, making her a sympathetic character with whom many readers will identify." (School Library Journal)
"A superbly crafted fantasy in the heroic tradition....Unlike many sequels, this maintains the dramatic tensions of its predecessor." (Horn Book)
"Although set in another world, where dragons fly and people have fire lizards as pets, Menolly's innermost concerns are wholly contemporary." (Booklist)

    "Sound quality not the best"

    It was difficult to hear her pronounce the "s" in the word "she".
    Either the recording quality is a copy of a copy of the settings for transferring the data to this format was not correct.
    When she spoke in multiple character voices the quality was so much better.

    "Well done!"

    The reader had an excellent ability to distinguish voices. She also had a good interpretation of the work.  The only downside was that the narration was slightly slow in tempo.

    "Another Favorite"

    This second book in the Harper Hall trilogy is a satisfying continuation of Menolly's story. A fun one to listen to.

    "Story not the best, Narrator was good"

    I love Anne McCaffrey with all my heart, but Menoly's character is just so hard for me to like. she apologizes too much. I just don't see her as a main character. I'm fine that the next book in series is supposed to be based on another character. Narrator did great!

    I love to listen to classics as well as hard Scifi while knitting or working out or just sitting. Always a good time.

    "Great Series"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Definitely, this is a fantastic series of books. Must start with the first one to get acquainted with the story and characters. Once you've read this trilogy heading into the Dragonriders of Pern trilogy and the next set is even better! You get to see the characters completed.

    "Rare trilogy where the second book is the best"

    Usually, the second book of a trilogy is the worst (or at least the most unspectacular), but I think the Dragonsinger is the best of the three Harper Hall Books. It's at heart a school story, with a heroine, Menolly, who begins as an outsider and struggles through the book to find her place in her new home. Sally Darling is an acceptable, if not exemplary narrator. I don't really buy her voice as that of a teenage girl, but it isn't off-putting enough to ruin the experience.

    "Great Book Bad Narration"

    I love all Anne McCaffrey's books and this one does not disappoint in the story line. I was, however, disappointed in the narration. It is hard to tell the difference between the characters and the reader just plods along. I found it hard to listen to. There are so many better narrators out there.
