I loved this book as a teen, but how I love it now - transported back to Pern and the characters all came alive :)

Love this trilogy! I have been day dreaming about having my own fire lizard since I read this book probably 20 years ago. I am glad I spend a credit adding this to my library I bet I will listen to it every few years for a long time. Hope to share it with my son when he gets a bit older too.

How have I lived all my live without knowing this author?! I loved this book, imagining it was written very recently, not realising it was published the year I was born. I definitely will read or listen to more. The setting is different yet so relatable. The characters are interesting and the storyline is gripping.

What a refreshing book to return to. I just love discovering things I missed when reading the book as I am listening to it.

So great revisiting the dragons of Pern. It has been decades, so all seems fresh again. I fear I will be binge reading thanks to the book club. The narrator has done a fine job.

This book was so slow getting started and I couldn’t remember all the names of people and things thrown at the reader at the beginning and no explanation later in the book to describe. I finished it and it did get better by the middle of the book then when it became interesting, it was over!

I somehow missed this book and the beginning is a fascinating account of how Pern, dragonriders and thread came to be. Not to mention fire lizards and bonding. Love the narrator, Sally Darling, too.
