Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Anne McCaffrey

Narrated By: Dick Hill

Date: September 2005

Duration: 9 hours 16 minutes


On the beautiful planet Pern, colonized for centuries, Land Holders and Craftsmen have traditionally tithed food and supplies to the dragonweyrs to which they are bound. In times past, the mighty telepathic dragons and their riders were the only protection from the dreaded, life-threatening Thread.

But it has been over 400 years since the last Threadfall, and some people have come to doubt that the menace will every strike again. But F'lar, rider of Pern's greatest bronze dragon, has no such illusions. The Red Star is near; Thread will fall soon.

    I was slightly put off at first that a man was narrating an Anne McCaffrey book, but he actually did a great job bringing the characters' voices to life. As always, Anne's book was fabulous and has me hooked on the series now.

    After listening to Dragonsdawn, I was excited to listen to the oldest book in the series. The story was interesting and certainly kept me entertained during a long commute. There are all sorts of interesting sci fi concepts in addition to the dragons and alien planet things.

    Story is engaging, writing is solid and good. Quality of the recording left a little to be desired. I could hear background voices on some of the tracks that was distracting.

    I cannot fathom the thought process of those who do not like Dick Hill's narration. All I needed to do was hear him give Robinton's speech about the wolves at the heights and I found him to be definitive gold. This story holds up as the bedrock by which Pern stands. For me, it is a classic in every single way. I'm glad to revisit this story every few months. If this is your first time entering Pern, I know you will be in for a once in a lifetime journey. If you're coming back, I hope you feel all that I feel.

    I love this series of books! If dragons were in assistance on this world I imagine this would be a realistic scenario they might exist. in.

    Read this series years ago. Really liked it so thought I would listen this time around. Not sure the difference but just couldn’t get into it. Dick hill narrator spoke just a little to fast even though on 1x speed. Didn’t catch a hint of Reacher in any of the characters.
