To the nobles who live in Benden Weyr, Lessa is nothing but a ragged kitchen girl. For most of her life she has survived by serving those who betrayed her father and took over his lands. Now the time has come for Lessa to shed her disguise--and take back her stolen birthright. But everything changes when she meets a queen dragon. The bond they share will be deep and last forever. It will protect them when, for the first time in centuries, Lessa's world is threatened by Thread, an evil substance that falls like rain and destroys everything it touches. Dragons and their Riders once protected the planet from Thread, but there are very few of them left these days. Now brave Lessa must risk her life, and the life of her beloved dragon, to save her beautiful world.… (mehr)

    Drachenbrut von Naomi Novik (justjukka)
    justjukka: Both Novik and McCaffrey take great care in developing the worlds for their respective series. If you like one, you may very well like the other.

    Archangel von Sharon Shinn (allisongryski)
    allisongryski: They both have a fascinating fantasy world setting with some parallels (weyrs/dragons vs aeries/angels) and important traditions that have been forgotten and must be renewed. They also both have a duty-driven hero, a strong, resourceful heroine who begins the story as a servant but was not born to that life. Even the nature of the romance, which is something like "arranged" is similar between the stories.… (mehr)

    Das Gesicht im Feuer von Melanie Rawn (TheBooknerd)
    TheBooknerd: Both epic series feature a young but clever leader, his intrepid female "partner in crime", great world-building, and -- oh yeah! Dragons!
  11. 02
    Die verlorene Erde. Die Heimkehr 01. von Orson Scott Card (aulandez)
    aulandez: Lost World setting in which simplicity has been used to avoid the past failings of humanity. Similar use of sci-fi tools, similar characterization, straightforward yet not overly simple.

This was another one of my series-sampling audio listens, to see if I might want to pursue it in print someday.

Audio Narration
The narrator is Dick Hill. I can’t really pinpoint all the reasons why, but his narration didn’t work well for me. His non-dialogue narration was fine as far as I can remember; I think most of my issues were with the dialogue. He over-dramatized some of it, making the characters, even the ones we were supposed to like, sometimes sound psychotic and deranged to my ears. I think I wouldn’t have cared for the characters much anyway based on the text, but the narration really didn’t help in that regard.

Story
On the surface of it, this seems like something I should have liked. It seems questionable as to whether it’s fantasy or science fiction, but it reads very much like an epic fantasy story and I’m usually easy to please when it comes to epic fantasy. Somehow this one didn’t work for me, though. The story is set on a planet called Pern which occasionally comes into range of another planet that has deadly “Threads” that invade Pern and threaten all life. Dragons were created to help fight the thready threat, bonded with Riders. The problem is that the threat recurs so rarely, and it has now been about 400 years. People have begun to disbelieve the legends and are no longer prepared to face the threat if it comes again.

The story only moderately held my attention, despite having elements I feel like I should have liked, and I didn’t much care for the characters. Lessa was foolish, irresponsible, and annoying as hell. I wanted to like F’lar, but he was an ass. I might have overlooked the initial rape of Lessa when they were caught up in the dragons’ passion and didn’t have their heads on straight. But he kept doing it! And yet I got the impression that the reader was expected to respect his character. What the hell? And he shook her so much (not in a sexual context) that I guess her brains fell out, based on her behavior. Then Lessa apparently fell in love with him anyway. Rape ‘em and shake ‘em ‘til they love you, I guess. I also grew exasperated with all the time travel paradoxes. This paragraph may have more cuss words in it (all 3 of them) than I’ve used in my previous reviews for the year combined. This is indicative of much annoyance. :p

Some elements reminded me of Naomi Novik’s Temeraire series, so I couldn’t help comparing the two. I much preferred Temeraire, where I adored the characters and felt more invested in the story. It’s possible that I might have felt differently if I’d read them in the opposite order, and I may have done better with this in print than I did in audio. It’s also possible that I just wasn’t in the right mood for it.

I was going to give it 2.5 stars and round up to 3 on Goodreads, but somewhere in the middle of typing up my rant I decided to round down to 2 instead. I don’t think I’ve ever rated an epic fantasy-ish book this low before. I might consider giving it another try in print someday to see if I like it better that way, but not for quite a long time. ( )

Anne McCaffrey is the quintessential writer of fantasy books pertaining to dragons. These books are always wonderful, well written, and perfectly characterized. All of her series are great but the ones that take place on Pern are the best of all. This is not among my favorite Pern novels but I still quite enjoy it. ( )

This book was so much fun! For so long I was put off by the fact that it has an MPG of Sci-Fi. There should be a tag "Light Sci-FI" (and why the hell not, with all the other weird ones I have seen?).

This was more fantasy for me. Here's why:

Dragons
Dragons that can talk (to each other and certain humans)
Dragons that have emotions
And then there are the Dragons and the Dragonriders

Lessa, a young girl, is basically enslaved at the ancient Hold of her family. Everyone she loved was taken from her during an attack years ago. No one in the Hold realizes that she has the ancient blood of the Dragonriders. She waits for the day of her revenge.

F'Lar, a Dragonrider, arrives at the Hold searching for a Weyrwoman for the new Dragon Queen. Of course it's Lessa he finds. Yes, there is a romance that springs from this encounter, but it is sweet.

This book was written in 1968 by a woman, this makes me love this book even more. I will most definitely continue this series ( )

The best parts of the book were the relationships between dragons and riders, especially Lessa and Ramoth, and the time travel discovered by Lessa. At times, Lessa was a great character, but then she'd become a stereotype at others. The hyphenated names were annoying, and the devastation wrought by the Threads was never properly explained. Not sure I am even interested enough to read book #2, especially if the publishers cannot be bothered to fix all of the errors in the e-book version. ( )

This was a book I read many, many moons ago. I remembered little more than dragons and good will. I should have left it at that. Dragonflight features one massive (and I mean massive) issue.

Anne McCaffrey backs Pern into a jam hundreds of years in the making and there is no way out other than magically fixing everything with.... time travel. It is Tolkien's eagles on crack. I can count on one hand the number of times time travel has been used to great effect. This goes in the bigger pile.

You could go into how she also handles sex (one character even mentions it felt like rape!) and how Lessa waffles between a brilliant schemer to a whiner to a risk taker to a whiner.

But I digress. It has dragons. They breath flame. They kick Thread ass, whatever that is. ( )
