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.

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?

I cannot wait to read the final part of the trilogy, and then the rest of the books
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.
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.
Anne McCaffrey was an excellent writer and her stories about life on Pern and craftily written and draw the reader in to life on Pern.
