Don't miss the other books in the Harper Hall Trilogy.

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)

    Story
    "Anne McCaffery at her best"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Dragonsinger to be better than the print version?

    Its easier to follow then the book unless you have time to sit down and read it streigh rough in one reading


    What did you like best about this story?

    Menolly's grwoth and developement as a harper in just a seven day!


    Which character – as performed by Sally Darling – was your favorite?

    Menolly as I enjoyed her growth and blumming in the Harper Hall.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Menolly's reaction to Breckie's cry to Fonor and Cant after their ride to the Red Star and the Panic Menolly felt really came through. Briella's calling Menolly a thief and the reaction of All the fireligards to Menolly's anger and her fear por Piemer was very tense, and I agree with the Tanner that Menolly had a great punch!


    Any additional comments?

    The world Anne McCaffery has built on Pern is so real and all her books make the read so much more fun and listening to it makes it even more so.

    "I love this story"

    This is a great series and the reader is very good. It was easy to get lost in Pern while listening.

    Story
    "A long ago read comes back to me"

    This time as a listen. Sally Darling's narration reminds me of my mother reading to me as a child as they both have a soft southern accent. But that is not the reason for the 5 star rating. That reason is because Ms Darling is such an excellent narrator who kept me so involved in the story.

    Yes, I had read the book a long time ago...a very, very long time ago. So long ago I'd forgotten most of the story. Thank goodness I remembered the author and that she wrote about dragons and I really liked her writing.

    So, my friends, if you only remember the author, use one of your credits to reacquaint yourself with her writing....but you might want to start with the one before this as this is the follow up.

    O, you aren't familiar with Anne McCaffrey? Do you like fantasy with dragons and dragon riders and the adventures the have? Do you also like good writing? Well then, you better get started reading/listening to her books!

    I gotta go now. I've gotta get back to reading!

    Story
    "All three Harper Hall books need to be remastered"

    Still love the story after all these years. And the narrator, while not to my taste, does a good job. But these recordings are VERY old and it shows. At the very least they need to be remastered, if not re-recorded. There are awkward cuts and frequent dropped words - as if the recordings were made from cassette tapes that had been warped. It makes me hesitate to buy any more of the Dragonrider books because I'm concerned that there will be similar problems if the recordings are of a similar age.

    "Narration"

    The new narrator takes some getting use to a very heavy southern accent. But overall ok.
