The White Dragon

Unabridged Audiobook

Release Date
October 2005
14 hours 43 minutes
Never had there been as close a bonding as the one that existed between the daring and adventurous young Lord Jaxom and his extraordinary white dragon, Ruth. Pure white and incredibly agile, Ruth was a dragon of many talents, though almost everyone on Pern thought he was a runt that would never amount to anything.

But Jaxom knew better, knew he could teach his dragon to fly and to destroy the deadly silver Threads that fell from the sky. Disobeying all rules, Jaxom and Ruth trained in secret. Their illicit flights seemed but a minor disobedience - until they found themselves in the path of danger and in a position to prevent the biggest disaster of all.

This is a great book in a great series. This format worked quite well and I would recommend it to any one. If you love fantasy but you've never read the Dragonriders of Pern, you are seriously missing out.

I love this book. As usual, Anne Mccaffrey writes a wonderful coming of age story of Jaxom and his unique white dragon Ruth. I do have issues with the narrator Mr. Hill and his one voice for different characters. he is better in this book but I wish they would find someone else to voice the characters.

People aren't wrong about the quality of the recording, but to me, Dick Hill's voice is iconic for this series. I will forgive that nearly anything. There are some parts that are graphic in violence and some stuff that is not the most healthy in terms of relationships. With that said, this is the turning point of the story in the best way. It leads you to the Renegades of Pern and eventually, All the Weyrs of Pern. That story alone is worth it. You get to see a story of a society trying to rebuild something that was lost with technology and mathematics, which is not the usual for stories like this, but I love it all the more. Enjoy this Story of Jaxom's, but love Robinton, F'lar, Less, and so many more.

The book is great, but the voice recording quality seems degraded and out of spec.

the dragonriders of Pern Series has been one of my favorite series for many years and I love the story in particular but I'm not real impressed with the narrator I still listened to the book all the way through but I have to pick it back up to do it
