Publisher's Summary

Teenage Aramina has the unusual ability to hear dragons. Her keen perception causes dismay to her mother, who fears Aramina will desert her family and commit to living the life of a dragonrider. In the land of Pern, Aramina's family is known as the "holdless," nomads who roam the land to hide from bandits. Aramina must find a way to exploit her unique talent without sacrificing the family she loves. The Girl Who Heard Dragons is narrated by the accomplished actress Constance Towers, best known for her starring role in the daytime TV drama Capitol.

    "UMM Is this A Mistake??"

    Like a previous reviewer stated the narration is wonderful!!! However the story is cut off midway and goes into another story about a young lady who wants to be a horse trainer but it definitely isn't the epic fantasy book I purchashed. This story is also cut off to talk about some young guy on a space station creating a holographic fantasy girl who to his surprise ends up assigned to his space station and then even that gets cut off. I wanted a 3 hour story about a girl who heard dragons this is definitely a serious let down:(

    Story
    "Disappointed"

    This recording is not what it should be. First of all, I want to say that the narration by Constance Towers is wonderful. This made the errors in this recording even more disappointing. The story about Aramina is chopped off mid way and another unnamed story starts in the middle of that story.
    It is a mechanical error. The full story of Aramina is not on this recording.

    "the girl who heard dragons"

    This story is also featured as the second story of four in the "Gift of Dragons" (and all four stories there are complete). Armina's story continues in "Renegades of Pern." She's not the main character in that story, but she is a strong character and you will find out what happens to her.

    "interesting"

    the second two stories are not part of the Purn series. I'm not sure where Anne McCaffrey was going with this 2 short stories.

    "The story cuts of half way through recording"
    Would you try another book from Anne McCaffrey and/or Constance Towers?

    Audible just notified me that they'd fixed the glitch that results in a totally different story starting at time mark 132:18, but when I downloaded the supposedly repaired version of this recording it is still half "The Girl Who Heard Dragons" and half some other unknown story.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Girl Who Heard Dragons?

    When the recording stopped half way through the story so that I never heard the end.

    "love all McCaffrey stories"

    This is one of my favorite stories but the way it started out sounded as if was started in the middle of the reading.
