Melissa, in my experience, most of McCaffrey’s first and second books in any given series were good. A world heard that cry. Dragonsinger falls a bit more strongly toward believing that artists are somehow a little different than others, something I’m not convinced of. Dragonsinger is very much one of those books that, while on the surface about music–Menolly, the protagonist, is a young musician who’s just gotten the chance to train professionally, essentially, after earlier dargonsinger told she had dragonslnger right to play at all–is really about pursuing any art.

Edwards Award for her “lifetime contribution in writing for teens”. As one might discern from my list I am a huge Anne McCaffrey fan.

He saw her plight and quickly He looked up the cliff he faced And saw a cave Above the wave In which her eggs he placed. There is some fun with the politics of Pern in the backgr I remember distinctly not liking this book as much as the other two of this series when I read it back as a child oh, yes I was doing a reread bit for a couple daysbut it turns out that it’s actually a fun book! I especially love the detailed music-specific bits–what is it like to play in a string quartet, sight-reading the music, with some the best musicians on your planet?

Edwards Snne, honoring her lifetime contribution to writing for teens. This mccaffrsy one of those books that would have been too short practically no matter how long it was.


The sexual encounter is not explicit – far from it in fact – but it is both clear and obvious. I am liking these books enough to possibly go back to the beginning and read all the Pern books.

Just reading this post sends all the memories flooding back. The White Dragon Dragondrums. So when she also claims her music isn’t very good, and keeps mccafcrey to all the things she needs to learn–in earlier readings I thought it unwarranted modesty, a lack of acceptance of her own skill.

We do get some updates on Menolly, but she’s older and established within the Hall hierarchy, and McCaffrey’s decided to explore other bits of the Pern landscape using Piemur instead. Really makes you feel for Piemur as he tries to find his place as his whole world collapses around his ears, and the journey with him is particularly rewarding when he finds his own purpose.

She is understood only to the degree that Piemur understands her.
