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)

    "Very enjoyable reading of story"
    Would you listen to Dragonsinger again? Why?

    Definitely. Ms. Darling did an excellent reading of all the characters. Disagreed with some of the pronunciation of some names but suppose they were approved by Ms. McCaffrey.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Dragonsinger?

    Enjoyed description of chorus's performance during Threadfall.


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

    Silvina was done perfectly.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Joyful fantasy

    "Love It!!!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I have read or listen to every single book in the pern series!!!!


    What about Sally Darling’s performance did you like?

    Sally Darling's voice to me is uniquely suited to this particular story, I for one would not like any other narrator to do it, if someone else were to do it, the story would be ruined. though dick hill might be an exception.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes!!! definitely, I've read it enumerable times already!!!!!!!!

    "Thoroughly enjoyable"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    It has been a few years since my last re-read of the Dragonsinger trilogy, so I thought I would try listening to it this time. My previous experience with audiobooks have been the Robert Jordan and George Martin series, so I didn't know what to expect with the new narrator. I was hooked so quickly--the cadence and flow of the story were exquisitely done. Thank you!

    Story
    "The 2nd Trilogy in the Pern Series"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Dragonsinger to be better than the print version?

    Read the print version over 20 years ago, enjoyed the audio version just as much.


    What other book might you compare Dragonsinger to and why?

    All the Pern Series books are a must read.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The account of the hatching of the White Dragon Ruth as seen through another perspective.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Could not put the origial down and couldn't turn the audio off until the end, and started the next book as soon as it downloaded.


    Any additional comments?

    Read it, listen to it but most of all 'GO TO PERN'.

    "Excellant story from a brilliant author"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this story to anyone who enjoys Anne McCaffrey's works. I remember reading this as a teenager and really connected to the emotions of the main character. Listening to the story drew me back in to the world of Pern and made me want to reread all of her stories, starting back at the beginning.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Seeing a different point of view than that of the the dragonriders. I really like the character of Menolly.


    What does Sally Darling bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She is a good narrator who brings the story to life.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I really resonated with Menolly's feelings of loneliness and alienation from her friends and family for being talented and different.

    I'm an unrepentant bookworm with too much time on my hands. I read at least 100+ books annually, with audio books as my main addiction!

    "Great series"
    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I love Menolly, the way the author wrote her character was fantastic. So real and easy to relate to. She does such a wonderful job putting together an interesting story. My sister and I started listening to the first book in the series on a long drive, and then we had to take it inside and finish the series, it was just that good! .


    Have you listened to any of Sally Darling’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This series is the first I've time I've heard Sally Darling read. She's pretty good, just occasionally mispronunciates words. Does a good job though.

    The second in a trilogy, it carries on the tale of Menolly and her troubles and triumphs in the Harper Hall. Very satisfying story.

    "Lovely Reading"

    I've always loved the Harper Hall books and this is just a great way to enjoy the story all over again. I was thrilled with the person reading, I could almost believe this was what it would be like to have author reading to me. Not that I know how AM sounds but, it was very good to me!
