When the healer Snake was summoned, she traveled the blasted landscape with her three serpents. From the venom of two of them, she distilled her medicines. But most valued of all was the alien dreamsnake, whose bite could ease the fear and pain of death.
When the dreamsnake is killed, Snake's powers as a healer are all but lost. Her only hope of finding another dreamsnake lies in a treacherous journey to the far-off Center City, where Snake will be pursued by two implacable followers: one driven mad by love, the other by fear and need.

"Anna Fields narrates with her usual mastery of the nuances of plot, mood, and character....Fields adds to the haunting sense of reality and possibility that underlies the events set forth." (AudioFile)
I'm a technician that does a lot of driving for his job. I use the "windshield" time to listen to audiobooks.
I think this was written in the late 70's and I'm sure it was quite good for it's time. By today's standard I found it average.
NV, not NY
Very imaginative and enjoyable enough, but written from a more emotional prespective that would seem to be geared more toward women. I'm not motivated to read other books by this author.
"The narration completes this well-rounded title."
A slightly dark, very well detailed and believable story with rich characters and good pace. Well thought through and subtle in its future setting like hard sci fi should be. The narration was superb - Anna Fields has a charming yet soothing voice that can occasionally ignite characters.
"DreamSnake by Vonda N MaIntyre"
Having read a few Of Vondas books my only dissapointment with this one was that she has not written a sequel if she ever does I want it
I've had this book as a favourite since I read it way back when it was first published. This Audiobook version is enhanced by the sympathetic reading and is a great rendition, allowing the characters a vocalisation they richly deserve. The story as always evokes a great sense of a world radically changed and varied from our own, which the narrator helps to project to the listener. Many Thanks.
