"[McCaffrey is] A master of the well-told tale." ( Chicago Sun-Times)

あらすじ・解説

Thread: deadly silver strands that fall from the sky like rain, devouring every organic thing in their path - animals, plants, and people alike. Who could believe that such a horrible thing could exist? After all, it's been 200 years since Thread supposedly fell on Pern. No one alive remembers that first onslaught. There's no sign of it anywhere in the world. Only the dragons, originally created to be a weapon against Thread, are still around to remind people that once before their population was decimated, their hopes and dreams and livelihoods almost destroyed forever.

For two centuries the dragonriders have been practicing and training, passing down from generation to generation the Threadfighting techniques learned on the fly by their besieged ancestors. And most of the Lord Holders are prepared to protect their people, to provide sanctuary, to assemble groundcrews to search out and destroy any Thread that might be missed by the dragons soaring overhead. All but one.

Even now the ominous signs are appearing: the violent winter storms and volcanic eruptions that are said to herald the approach of the Red Star and its lethal spawn. Impossibly, one stubborn Lord Holder, Chalkin of Bitra, refuses to believe - and that disbelief could spell disaster for all of Pern. So while the dragonriders desperately train to face an enemy they've never fought before, they and the other Lord Holders must find a way to deal with Chalkin and protect Bitra.

Narration is distracting.

This one is a great chapter in the Pernese saga.

The narration severely diatracts from the storyline. The articulation of speech is too strong: it feels like a forced performance. The narrator's depiction of the characters give every single character a distasteful persona. However, the dragons' speech was very cleverly differentiated.

Another fun and exhilarating adventure on Pern!

What a wonderful book! The characters and plot were so intriguing! I loved having both dragonrider and non-draginrider PoVs in the same book! I loved learning about the forming/creating of the Teaching Songs, and about what life was like as they started losing the more advanced technology of the "ancients"! And Dick Hill's performance was great! He had such distinct voices for each individual character and was able to convey different emotions for each!

Excellent book, poor recording

The book itself is excellent (as are most of the books in the Dragonriders of Pern series). What was disapointed was the quality of the recording, it sounded like it was recorded in a tunnel...even when downloaded at the best audio quality Audible offers. The narrator was also not up to Anne McCaffrey standards for previous books. The audiobook overall sounded amateurish.

ends where it should have began

you spend the entire book learning characters only for the book to end when it finally started getting good. no real ending. it feels like there was meant to be 6 or 7 more chapters but they were removed or never finished.

Dragonseye

Another fantastic book from the Dragonriders of Pern series. This story begins 250 years after the first fall. That is a lot of time in between each fall of thread. With so much time it is understandable that some begin to question if thread will ever fall again.

One of those that doesn't believe thread fall will return is a cruel Lord Holder. A lot of the story is around this despicable and cruel man. They go into how he treats his guests as well as his own holders. He doesn't get ready for the imminent fall and thus puts his own people in jeopardy.

I loved getting to know the other Lord Holders and the Dragon riders who are all getting ready for the thread fall to come. They train and clear land around each hold. They have lost so much of the technology that they came to this planet with. It is interesting to hear how they get along without that technology and the steps they take to fix issues that they have with more simple or non technological ideas. It is a lot for these people to take with never having faced thread before and having to train and get ready for something that is so frightening.

The characters are fantastic and the story is wonderful. I am really enjoying reading these books in chronological order.

The story

I really love the tail the audio did not follow the text very well and story lost some luster because the narrator did not read the author’s words.
