I really like this book. It was interesting to listen to a story on one of the dragon's cousin. The watchwhers are rarely mention in any other stories. I found the story well paced and characters are well written. Todd did a great job on this lesser know animal of Pern. Mr Hill did his usual ok job. I will not have any problems listening to this book again.
Wonderful addition to an ongoing story. The narrator does a good job of giving each character their own voice and personality.
Another brilliant Pern book. I only gave it 4 stars vs. 5, because all of her stories have the tendency to lose me in some of those really big words, which I have to look up in dictionaries. This is really hard to do while driving a car, so it doesn't get done. Also I can't see the spelling, therefore I immediately forget the word before I have a chance to look it up. Other than that, I loved the story, although it was a bit predictable, but brilliant!
Anne McCaffrey fans won't want to miss this one. Even though Todd isn't quite up to his mother's craft standards, this book is fine. I loved learning more about watch whers - some of which seems to contradict earlier McCaffrey writings. Oh well, it happens. The narrator is good, the book moves right along and if you like Pern novels, you'll like this one.
If you're a Pern novice, you'll want to start with DragonFlight or one of her early novels to get the basic background and history.
I greatly enjoy reading the Pern books. This is the first time I have listened to one. The narrator brought this book to life. He had sepearte "voices" for each character, which he kept through the entire reading.
The story line was very well written, but a little see through. You kinda knew where it was going to end up, at about the middle of the book.
Definately would recommend to any Sci/Fantasy Reader who likes "good" dragons.
Anne McCaffrey and her son, Todd, bring us another dragon based story from Pern -- and a worthy tale they do tell.
Pull on some warm clothes and prepare to slip between -- the where and when of right here, right now. Take this journey and feel your own heart soar with the boy and the girl who live this one with everything they have to offer.
A very fine read, a good listen too.
I enjoyed this look at another type of dragon on Pern. I have long wished for more books about Pern, this was great.
I found this to be a nice adaptation of the Pern seris. I enjoyed the reader and his abilities greatly, this is one I'd recommend
Always a pleasure to return to Pern. Mr. McCaffry seems to have inherited his mother's wonderful imagination and Ms. McCaffrey is willing to let someone else venture into her realm
Anne McCaffrey has continued the saga of the dragon riders with a new twist regarding the watch-whers. This has an exciting twist at the end. I look forward to more stories from her.
