I enjoyed listening to this book again (have read it before), but the narration became irritating to me when the narrator tried to pitch his voice higher to read the women's voices- he just couldn't carry it off. It sounds better reading it all straight. Also, I noticed a few mispronunciations- earlier in the book, Menolly was pronounced with the emphasis on the second syllable, whereas later in the book, it was emphasized on the first. I have read it with the pronunciation on the first syllable (in MY head). I noticed it with one or two other names, also. It makes me wonder, do the readers find out from the authors how to pronouce certain names, or just wing it?

Where does The Skies of Pern rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
It ranks among the top 40 of the books I have listened to.
What was one of the most memorable moments of The Skies of Pern?
When Golanth gets back into the sky with the help of the other dragons.
Which character – as performed by Dick Hill – was your favorite?
It is a tie between Tai and her dragon. Unfortunately there were too many times where the voice of F'lessan changed too much.
Any additional comments?
there is some audio missing towards the end. it skips from the middle of a sentence to the middle of another that I know very well having read the book multiple times.
