批評家のレビュー

"The transformation of Menolly from a terrified outcast to a woman secure within herself is skillfully handled, making her a sympathetic character with whom many readers will identify." ( School Library Journal)
"A superbly crafted fantasy in the heroic tradition....Unlike many sequels, this maintains the dramatic tensions of its predecessor." ( Horn Book)
"Although set in another world, where dragons fly and people have fire lizards as pets, Menolly's innermost concerns are wholly contemporary." ( Booklist)

あらすじ・解説

Menolly has returned home and entered the Harper Hall. But her entry into the Hall proves the beginning of more troubles, and the Master Harper gives her a difficult time because she is a girl. As Menolly begins to despair, she finds help in the shape of nine bright allies.

Discription Diffrent

Whom ever wrote the discription of this book, must not have taken the time to read it. I have read and heard it several times and the Master Harper in no way gave her a hard time. The story is great but read it before writing about it.

One of my favorite books.

Would you listen to Dragonsinger again? Why?

Probably not. I love the story, but I did not love Ms. Darling's voice for Menolly. MUCH too old sounding and I hated her voice speaking Brekke's cry/song.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Dragonsinger?

There were many memorable moments in Dragonsinger, but the one that touched me was Menolly's breakdown after the fight at the Gather.

What aspect of Sally Darling’s performance would you have changed?

I really think Ms. Darling did a good job of differentiating the different voices, but she was all wrong for Menolly.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes

Good story, average reader

This is the second in the Mennolly stories about the life and role of Harpers on Pern. Menolly is now an Apprentice Harper, and she and her 9 fire lizards are having a rough time fitting in. As with all of the early McCaffrey stories of Pern, the plot is solid, and the character development good, and the book is an excellent "read".

The reader here is acceptable. Not Wanda McCaddon(Donada Peters), by any means, but she at least doesn't detract from the story.

Great Young Adult Novel, Miserable Reader

I've loved this story for 30 years - it was written in the height of McCaffrey's creativity, when her Pern stories were fresh and inventive.

The reader is the most miserable reader I've listened to in a LONG time. She pulls you out of the story with horrific mispronunciations of names, a wonky accent that vacillates, and a clunky rhythmic reading ability.

It's a shame the listener must put up with Ms. Darling's pitiful excuse for a reading to get the wonderful Harper Hall trilogy.

Still a Great Book (and the reader isn't that bad)

I personally don't get the big fuss over the reader's voice, though I did find it a little annoying how she had a hint of amusement in her voice at the end of too many lines, as it wasn't always appropriate for the scene. and it would have been nice if they had managed a production with singing and music, as it's such an integral part of the story.
All that aside, I've always loved this book. It's my favorite of the trilogy, and one of my very favorite of the Pern novels in general. It's good for lots of ages; I first read it in middle school and have read it many times since, without it ever losing any of its charm. I will always recommend this book, and will suggest at least trying the audio version despite some of the other reviews concerning the reader's performance.

Recommended!

The story itself is wonderful, one of my 'all-time' favorite Pern stories. The narration itself is... 'meh'. Not bad, just kind of average. Some of her pronunciations sound a bit awkward, but on the whole I recommend both "Dragonsinger" and "Dragonsong".

Part2 of Menolly's story

This is the continuation of the story of Menolly, the girl Harper. She's breaking "tradition" and irritating people to no end, really just through circumstance. Typical teenage jealousies that turn vindictive cause her numerous problems. The fact that she's a girl and the "owner" of 9 fire-lizards, in a male dominated society and in a school of jealous kids just automatically marks her as trouble. I like this story for the most part, but Menolly's subservience and eagerness to please are almost irritating, and even knowing her history of abuse and denigration at home don't make it totally acceptable. She does of course, overcome these things and all ends up well. Same problem for me with name pronunciation as before, and the narrator seems to veer a little to the melodrama for me again, but all in all this book still ranks at the top.

Great story and enjoyable narration

I have loved this tale since I was in school, and the narration is quite good. However, the story description is pretty inaccurate. It claims plot points that are completely wrong, and in some cases the opposite of the true story.

glad to meet old friends again

I read the pern books as a teenager and it's been such a joy to discover them on audible. Simple tales of growth and learning in a world where hard work and merit are rewarded. during the current dark days they have been light relief.

Dragonsinger

I loved hearing this book using Audible . Even though I had read it some time ago I found a different experience and in the excitement of the book with hearing it read to me . I would recommend anyone to give Audible a try and also all the Pern series of books by Anne McCafree.

A song well sung

This book was read by me a couple of decades ago with good memories and the book has stood the test of time. An excellent story, well presented. One of a series of books that are worth investigating and are an excellent listen as McCaffery is a master story teller.
Looking forward to the next one in the series.

one of my old time favourites

This is book 2 in the Dragon singer mini series.

I grew up reading these books, Pern is a world I have loved since I was around 11 years old (I'm 43 now) this book was written the year I was born and it's still as enthralling now as then.

I listen to this roughly once a year, the 3 books in this mini series in the Pern world. These and The White Dragon are my favourites... if you haven't read/listened to these before, do give them a go.

You may want to start with Dragonsong first though as it tells Menolly's story, although this can be listened to as a stand alone.

Sally Darling reads well, its strange to hear irish sayings or phrases read with an american accent but as Anne McCaffrey was an American living in Ireland, I doubt it matters much!

Enjoy!

Dragon singer.

As always,. Anne McCaffrey has brought to life another part of the world of the Dragon riders. This time from the point of view of a misunderstood and talented girl as she enters the Harper hall.

Please Sally Darling - practice each chapter before recording.

Spoilt again, by incorrect pronunciations - possibly in some cases it is American pronunciations, eg, "buoy" as booey instead of boy - "grimace" as grim-ace instead of grimus - two examples, but the misplaced emphases are really the ones that indicate lack of proper preparation. But, your voice is the one thing that makes the readings acceptable- you are listenable.
