It was particularly unfortunate because McCaffrey doesn’t dragoonsinger the social or personal ramifications any further than she had already, thus it was a missed opportunity for the author to give us some more insight into what this meant for culture and relationships.

Hope to review all of these books individually in time but I want to devote the proper attention to it and with my two little monkeys–climbing around that would be difficult!

Dragonsinger : Harper Of Pern

I was so disappointed with Dragondrums, because I wanted to read more about Menolly – not Piemur. The Masterharper gives her a difficult time simply because she is a young woman, and she manages to alienate more of her fellow harpers than she makes friends. His adventures start when his voice breaks and the Harper hold must find other work for him. Dragondrums is the third of the “Harper” books and though it also works fine as a standalone, the previous two books did initially establish Piemur, the main character in the book.


The story starts at the end of Dragonsinger where Menolly is made a Journeyman.


Again, this is good for getting a lay of the annne if you’re going to read the other Pern novels, but when I pick up the Harper Hall books for a reread, I frequently find myself leaving this one on the shelf. It still twines with the main Pern mccaffrfy but this one is a bit more about the Harper Hall and the Masterharper, which is nice as you get an idea of his plans and how he’s going about them.

This story would be fine as a stand alone story. By using our website dragonsigner agree to our use of cookies. Note on age–Menolly’s an adolescent girl, just beginning, toward the end of Dragonsingerto think about boys.

I think it was just that Ms McCaffrey changed the focus of the story from my beloved friend Menolly and moved over to a newer face with Piemur. What about the people who impressed the dragons? Dragonsinger falls a bit more strongly toward believing that artists are somehow a little different than others, something I’m not convinced of.

Our heroine, Menolly, was isolated and on her own in the first book. Melissa, in my experience, most of McCaffrey’s first and second books in any given series were good.

All the while she has to contend with the challenge of her injured hand–will she be able to regain full use of it, and achieve her full potential as an instrumentalist? Bookwyrme November 20, at I will not forget Menolly and her struggles for some time yet. She died at the age of 85, after suffering a massive stroke on 21 November Refresh and try again.


Her possession of nine fire lizards doesn’t make her popular with some in the hall and like most novels of this type, Menolly finds herself dealing with the “mean girl” contingent of Pern. But the holdless girl had first to overcome many heartaches in this strange new life. Oct 18, Gillian Murrell rated it it was amazing.

Dragondrums (Harper Hall, #3) by Anne McCaffrey

McCaffrey views these three books as a trilogy or if the publisher decided to lump them together and advertise them as one. Even after my 15th reread this one mccaffeey audiobook I still love the hell out of the first two books in this series.

This helps her form relationships with some people, but brings jealous resentment from others. AM is very good at starting books that are immersed in a storyline but she gives just the right sort of info to get you back on track mccaftrey remind you from previous books.

You had done a brilliant job with the first two books in this “trilogy”, so please do explain why you felt compelled to switch your focus from our beloved heroine Dragonsiner to her rambunctious sidekick, Piemur? Not great literature, but nice. It’s a fabulously written series.
