Publisher's Summary

Menolly needs more than music's power in the second book in the Harper Hall trilogy, set within science fiction legend Anne McCaffrey's beloved and best-selling Dragonriders of Pern series.

Pursuing her dream to be a Harper of Pern, Menolly studies under the Masterharper and quickly learns that more is required than knowledge of music and a clever way with words. The Masterharper gives her a difficult time simply because she is a young woman, and she manages to alienate more of her fellow harpers than she makes friends. Menolly must rise up and prove that a woman is just as capable as any of her male fellow students - and if she can, she will shape the future of Pern.

Not the whole book

This audio version is only snippets from each chapter of the book, not the whole book. I got it to listen to while driving and it's missing quite a few events from the books. Total let down.

Not happy

This is an abridged version. I know the book well and was very disappointed to find several passages abruptly shortened. And Adrienne Barbeau may be a fine actress but she's a terrible narrator.
