      Just to set the record straight I have reread Anne McCaffrey s dragon books many many times I loved them as a teenager and love them as an adult My daughter has even read many of these books as well If I would have never read these books I would have never known about dragons McCaffrey s book have set the way I compare all other dragon books I have read They may be good, but don t come close to the world of Pern.

    2. Daniel on said:

      In Dragonquest, Anne MacCaffrey brings readers in to a wonderful, exciting, and fun to imagine world of men and dragons It s a fairly quick read, and any one who read Dragonflight and liked it will love this book It s a classic fantasy published in 1978, and it s one of the first dragon rider novels ever.With a good mix of action, politics, and romance, Dragonquest is easily a page turner There s a lot of characters, and readers get to know each one pretty well and they re all different Some of [...]

      I enjoyed this book, the fantastic original story, and the world it took place in a lot The dragons are cool, and the Threads are a good plot device.However, author Anne McCafferey fell into the Fantasy trope of using clunky, unpronouncable names as a means of being original Except for Lessa, the protagonist, everyone s names ate littered with awkward apostrophes and too many syllables for the tongue to trip over For some reason, my least favorite was definitely not the worst offender but it ann [...]

    4. Tarah on said:

      The first book in this set is great It s the entry to this series and is interesting and exciting The second book is a huge pass Dragonquest reads like a book of interconnected short stories with no clear transition between stories This wouldn t normally be a problem but it s incredibly boring in parts, not offset by the few exciting or interesting stories There s no clear main character, though there are important ones We seem to be looking through a thick pane of old glass at those characters, [...]

      I would day dream about dragons in highschool because of this series I wanted nothing than to link with one the dragons and fly away from it all for a while.

    6. Priscilla Sage on said:

      It s an excellent read Anne McCaffrey is one of the best fantasy writers I would recommend reading all her books.

    7. Csoban on said:

      The Dragonriders of Pern books 1 3 is a great introduction to the series These Dragonriders live on this planet called Pern with Dragons Dragonriders impress Dragons at hatching and create a mental bond The Dragonriders job is to protect their planet from Thread Thread is a black silvery thing that falls presumably from the Red Star and sears everything it touches Dragons eat firestone which turns into gas that they use to sear thread The story faces many problems and twists and turns I believe [...]

      Once you pick up this book and open the cover, you will immediately be transported to the amazingly realistic world of Pern The best way to enjoy the series though, is to get the prequel to the series This book explains all the background into how the dragons and riders came into being and their roles I won t say for fear of spoilers just go out and get the WHOLE SET and be ready to fly on the wings of dragons.

    9. Kris Moger on said:

      Cannot say enough about the Pern series I first read them when I was a teenager My brother gave them to me and I fell in love with fantasy In particular I love the range and diversity of characters Each character is well developed and easy to get attached to The world inspires the imagination and for me set me on the path of creating my own worlds and loving dragons Anne McCaffrey is easily my greatest influence and the standard by which I judge all other books.

    10. Rhianna Marks on said:

      I love the universe Anne McCaffrey created and I love that she wrote a billion books about Pern Anyone who loves sci fi or fantasy should read this series I won t lie, some of the points were a bit skippy over ish for me in terms of her writing style but it s still a solid piece of writing.

    11. Nell Secor on said:

      AND, White Dragon It was Dragonriders of Pern edition Science fiction, that is not overly technical, gory or romantic It was a bit overwhelming keeping up with the numerous characters, occupations, their dragons holds, etc However, I loved getting to know Pern, the main characters, and the plot was believable and evolved well I anticipate reading books in the series

    12. Gale Bailey on said:

      I love this book This is the first science fiction book I truly got into, so good I have read it a second time This story is a great escape you feel like you are riding along with the dragons and living on Pern And the dragons themselves are lovable You will remember this story long after you ve finished reading it

    13. Queenosiris on said:

      Have not read this book in forever, barely remember any of the details That being said, I remember it being very good If you re into dragons, you should read it at one point or another That being said, after a second read through years ago, I found myself not as captivated as I was the first time around Further, the rest of the series I read seemed to fall flat after this one.

      Oh it could have been so much the dragons were lovely, but the names with so many in them that I got fed up gargling with the names, and I got bored where were the threads Won t be reading any.

    16. Rachel Claypool on said:

      For some reason, I thought this was a children s series that would change in style as the characters author aged Obviously, it is not that and I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed the book The pace is just right and it doesn t lose itself it unnecessary descriptions.

    17. Kyra Dunst on said:

      This is one of my favorite series, and one of two series that I keep a hard copy of on my bookshelves vs on my Kindle F Lar and F Nor are wonderful, brave men, and the Oldtimers cause them plenty of trouble.

    18. Justin Green on said:

      I loved the Dragonriders of Pern books as a teenager until they pulled a move which is similar in my mind to the Highlander movie franchise The series moved from good fantasy to really shitty sci fi.

    19. Elise Mullette on said:

      I would not recommend this book I love books with dragons, but the author did not do a very good job with it The concept was intriguing, but the characters were under developed, the plot under explained and the point vague.

    20. Sue Herbert on said:

      It s a long time since I read these but I loved them at the time The story of an ordinary girl who discovers she has an extraordinary destiny, is much used but always enjoyable in the right hands Great fun.

    21. Robert Enright on said:

      read the large compiled book thought it was going to be a hard read, as it was in hardback and approximately 2 1 2 inches thick boy was I wrong went back after the rest after that since I was hooked awesome reading.

    22. Guillermo on said:

      I really liked it I read some opinions about Drangons of Pern being chauvinist Well, that may be, but if you want to reflect real middle age social behaivor, I think it ought to be that way, isn t it Any way, good book from my personal point of view.

    23. Paul Harry on said:

      Read this years ago and it was great If you haven t read this series, please do You won t be disappointed.

    24. Deanna on said:

      Excellent book, very well written I thought the story line flowed very well.

    25. Brian Woods on said:

      Lessa and F Lar will keep you reading, excited about the magical flying mounts that keep Pern Thread free.

    26. Sarah Penhollow on said:

      I had Ramoth Ruth tattoos what does that say I read every one of the P.E.R.N novels and love them all I love how each trilogy s stories are woven together Great read for young and old
