This is a great book but you shouldn't read it till you've read Dragons Dawn, which is really the beginning of McCaffrey's Pern books.

This is a great book but you shouldn't read it till you've read Dragons Dawn, which is really the beginning of McCaffrey's Pern books. Then this one fills in extra information chronologically before, during and after the activities of the first book, Dragons Dawn. The first short story in this book answers questions that the reader would have posed to him/herself while reading Dragons Dawn, about why the planet was allowed to be colonized, etc.

This was her fourth tour of duty but the first one punctuated by disasters.

This is a great book but you shouldn't read it till you've read Dragons Dawn, which is really the beginning of McCaffrey's Pern books. Then this one fills in extra information chronologically before, during and after the activities of the first book, Dragons Dawn. The first short story in this book answers questions that the reader would have posed to him/herself while reading Dragons Dawn, about why the planet was allowed to be colonized, etc. The following stories in this book fill out Dragon's Dawn without having imposed the information unnecessarily on the quick, easily-read flow of Dragons Dawn during it's first reading. I loved this secondary book of short stories, and the way it was left till after Dragons Dawn to be read separately for all it's insights. Great idea, there Anne. I give it 5 stars, as I do all of McCaffrey's PERN books.

Great book! Great series! Gripping, drawing you into a world so well thought out, you can almost believe it really exists!
The first three are the best in the series, and this feels a little out of time, but it's designed and written to fill in a lot of background that answers a lot of questions. Or, you can read it as one of the earlier books, drawing you through the series in a more chronological flow. Either way, I "HIGHLY" recommend not only the book, but the series!

Stayed up all night reading this one. I highly suggest that you read the dragonriders of Pern books in chronological order it makes the reading so much better. I have read all the books several times this is the first time that I'm taking time to read them in chronological order. I highly recommend this book to anyone from teenage all the way to 90s it's an amazing world.

As good as any Anne McCaffrey book! I personally found it hard to keep up with the jumps in time between the sections of the book but once I reoriented my self and made the connections it was great. It is refreshing though not to have to wait three books for a new generation. Being as Michael "Mihill" Connell was just born at the end of the last book and is grown and taking on riding responsibilities at the end of the second section. It makes it easier to see the big picture. I love the fact that Ms. McCaffery brings you back to threads of the story that up might not remember. The universe of Pern that she most expertly brings to life, has me enthralled to the very end. The richness of this universe rivals or in league with JRR Tolkien's middle earth or C.S. Lewis's Narnia.

This is actually 5 short stories rather than 1 single story, set around the same time-frame as Dragonsdawn. I was fascinated to get the back-story of the original settlers (Dragonsdawn) and how it all got started, so really enjoyed reading more from that time period - many of the questions I've had over the years of reading this series were answered. I just wish the stories were longer, especially the one about the original survey team - they whetted my appetite and left me hungry for more!

I loved this book. I have read other books in this series, and this "intro to Pern" book - which although not first actually takes place as the first book, was very informative. It kept a steady pace and threw in a lot of twists and turns in the beginning to show how things came to be on Pern. Even though it took us through some events and jumped forward in time, it developed many of the characters to show the rich background. I loved this!

Anne McCaffery is my all time favorite author..I have read(and re-read)most of her books.Some are a little simplistic,some are
enchanting,but all of them show what a great writer she was.Her visions of other worlds,other societies,and people and creatures of all types blend together and immerse the reader in another time and place.She cares about her characters,be they human or ,in this case dragons.She saw the struggles,trials and tribulations of society.Pern was not a perfect place, but one I like to escape to from time to time.I'm sure I'm not the only one who will miss her..just grateful she left her worlds for us to discover.

I read the pern books as a kid, but decided to come back and read them in chronological order. I was very happy with this one (it actually includes 3 stories). Part of the story goes more indepth into happenings during first threadfall and the 3rd story is told from a different perspective 10 years after first fall ended. Good read, was hard to put down on book 1 and 3. Book 2 (Dolphins Bell) was a little slow in places, but still worth the read.
