    "Dragon Dreams"

    This is another favorite author of mine from my adolescence. I am rereading them with my ears and finding them more enjoyable than ever. The wonderful tales thread together to create a world of dragons. Yet the story is still a story of human relations, charactors, emotions, life and society. In each book we can find our selves and those we know.

    "Dragondrums"

    I have read this many times, it is an old friend, but Sally Darling's reading brought it to live, well done.

    "Dragondrums: Third in this series"

    I am sad to come to the end of the series as it has been enjoyable to read. It tied up the story lines from the first two books, while having a wonderful story of its own to tell.

    "Dragon drums"

    This is the third book in the Harper Hall trilogy. It follows Piemer as he matures in the Harper Hall and beyond. Good read. Stands by itself but works better if you have read the other books in the series/Pern universe.

    "always fun to listen to"

    the series of Dragon Song, Dragon Singer, and Dragon Drums is always a delight to listen to. .. Once a year :). The main characters mature as many main characters do through Anne McCafrey's other books about Pern--a most amazing planet :).

    "Fascinating read"

    Piemur is an audacious character you can't help cheering for. Great read. You get greater insight into the old timers and the changing nature of its inhabitants through the eyes of a mischiefious, but totally committed harper apprentice.

    "Enjoyed listening to the story."

    Although this trilogy was written for a young audience, I still enjoy listening to it at age 72. Well written and narrated by Sally Darling.

    "Excellent story and narration"

    This trilogy (Harper) is my favorite of the Pern books and also Sally Darling is my favorite of the Pern narrators for the audio versions.

    "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.

    "Excellent narrator"

    I read the harper series nearly twenty years ago and absolutely loved it, so I knew the story before I listened to it on Audible. I was somewhat hesitant though, as I have found several of my favourite books absolutely RUINED by poor narrators with grating voices, but Ms Darling does an excellent job portraying a vast array of personalities. She has a very pleasant voice and it was a pleasure listening to the story.

    "My guilty schmaltz"
    What made the experience of listening to Dragondrums the most enjoyable?

    My favourite McCaffrey book by far - always connected with this one since I first read it in the eighties - sympathetically read by Sally Darling.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Dragondrums?

    Always grabs my gut in the last few sentences.


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

    Sally Darling is the best reader I've heard of Anne and Todd McCaffrey's work.


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

    Absolutely


    Any additional comments?

    Piemur's my favourite McCaffrey creation. The book and this reading really do him justice.
