This is another favorite author of mine from my adolescence. I am rereading them with my ears and finding them more enjoyable than ever. The wonderful tales thread together to create a world of dragons. Yet the story is still a story of human relations, charactors, emotions, life and society. In each book we can find our selves and those we know.

Where does Dragondrums rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
I would say it's average. I've listened to some great ones!
What did you like best about this story?
Anne McCaffrey's world-building is brilliant. She is truly a master. Also, even though this is the third book in the series, it really stands on its own as a story and I could easily see someone reading and enjoying it who knew very little about Pern at all.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
I really feel as though Sally Darling's voice isn't appropriate for these books. It feels like your grandmother is sitting down to read you a story, which might be great in some cases, but these books are just too cool for that to be effective.

I read the harper series nearly twenty years ago and absolutely loved it, so I knew the story before I listened to it on Audible. I was somewhat hesitant though, as I have found several of my favourite books absolutely RUINED by poor narrators with grating voices, but Ms Darling does an excellent job portraying a vast array of personalities. She has a very pleasant voice and it was a pleasure listening to the story.

The narration by Sally Darling captures the atmosphere and characters. One of McCaffrey's most delightful!
