Dragonquest (The Dragonriders of Pern #2) by Anne McCaffrey | From couch to moon
Feb 05, Mariah Tessin rated it it was amazing. Just to set the record straight I have reread Anne McCaffrey’s dragon books many many times. I loved them as a teenager and love them as an adult. My daughter has even read many of these books as well. If I would have never read these books I would have never known about dragons.
McCaffrey’s book have set the way I compare all other dragon books I have read. They may be good, but don’t come close to the world of Pern. Mar 15, Daniel rated it it was amazing. In Dragonquest, Anne MacCaffrey brings readers in to a wonderful, exciting, and fun-to-imagine world of men and dragons. It’s a fairly quick read, and any one who read Dragonflight and liked it will love this book. It’s a classic fantasy published inand it’s one of the first dragon rider novels ever.
With a good mix of action, politics, and romance, Dragonquest is easily a page turner.
Dragonflight / Dragonquest
There’s a lot of characters, and readers get to know each one pretty well- and they’re all different. Som In Dragonquest, Anne MacCaffrey brings readers in to a wonderful, exciting, and fun-to-imagine world of men and dragons.
Some of the best characters are dragons. While often disagreeing, they all ultimately struggle against the same foe: The constant threat gives their world a sense of danger, unity, and responsibility. While this book is fantastically written, readers should be warned of its some what extreme vocabulary. Atypical to fantasy novels, high schoolers and middle schoolers may run in to many words they don’t know.
I’m a senior in high school myself, and was surprised to find many of my classes vocabulary words with in, as well as some words I hadn’t heard of such as “protuberance” or “decrepitude”. I definitely loved this book. The story, characters, setting, and action are all great.
This is for readers who want a fun read, and an extremely original world of magic and adventure. This is not for readers who struggle with language, or are looking for something symbolic or profound.
While great, it’s still just a fantasy novel. As that’s right up my alley, I recommend it fully. Dec 28, The Batman rated it really liked it. I enjoyed this book, the fantastic original story, and the world it took place in a lot. The dragons are cool, and the ‘Threads’ are a good plot device. However, author Anne McCafferey fell into the Fantasy trope of using clunky, unpronouncable names as a means of being original.
Except for Lessa, the protagonist, everyone’s names ate littered with awkward apostrophes and too many syllables for the tongue to trip over. For some reason, my least favorite was definitely not the worst offender but i I enjoyed this book, the fantastic original story, and the world it took place in a lot. For some reason, my least favorite was definitely not the worst offender but it annoyed me to no end.
Behold the awkwardness that is F’nor. Is it supposed to sound like ‘fuh-nor’ or rhyme with ‘snore’? Also, and perhaps this was just the compiled version I read there weren’t any natural breaking points except for the title page between books; No chapters, little to no separation of paragraphs, nothing. This made it difficult to keep track of my place. I always forget to use a bookmark, so maybe that’s my fault.
But then again, books should come with cloth bookmarks by default. Sorry that this became a rant on everything but the book itself, but hopefully I made my point clear.
The first book in this set is great!
It’s the entry to this series and is interesting and exciting. The second book is a huge “pass. This wouldn’t normally be a problem but it’s incredibly boring in parts, not offset by the few exciting or interesting stories. There’s no clear main character, though there are important ones. We seem to be looking through a thick pane of old glass at those char The first book in this set is great!
We seem to be looking through a thick pane of old glass at those characters, the details dragobquest to make out but only if you dgagonquest the right angle. Dec 16, Priscilla Sage rated it it was amazing. It’s an excellent read. Anne McCaffrey is one of the best fantasy writers. I would recommend reading all her books. Sep 24, Csoban rated it really liked it.
The Dragonriders of Pern books is a great introduction to the series. These Dragonriders live on this planet called Pern with Dragons. Dragonriders impress Dragons at hatching and create a mental bond. The Dragonriders job is to protect their planet from Thread. Thread is a black silvery thing that falls presumably from the Red Star and sears everything it touches. Dragons eat firestone which turns into gas that they use to sear thread. The story faces many problems and twists and turns.
I b The Dragonriders of Pern books is a great introduction to the series. I believe it is a great book for those who can follow along with a few complicated words and phrases. Sep 11, Lou rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: After reading Tolkien’s, “The Lord of the Rings,” series, I felt that no other fantasy world could be as well-written as his but remain unique. In other words, most other fantasy creations are bad imitations of Tolkien’s work.
Hers is truly unique. There are no imitations that come close to what she wrote and if anything, McCaffrey and Tolkien stand close together in the world of fantasy writings with a slight edge to Tolkien, perhaps After reading Tolkien’s, “The Lord of the Rings,” series, I felt that no other fantasy world could be as well-written as his but remain unique.

Jul drgonquest, Randy rated it it was amazing. Once you pick up this book and open the cover, you will immediately be transported to the amazingly realistic world of Pern. The best way to enjoy the series though, is to get the prequel to the series. This book explains all the background into how the dragons and riders came into being and their roles I won’t say more for fear of spoilers!
Nov 26, Kris Moger rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Cannot say enough mccaftrey the Pern series. I first read them when I was a teenager.
My brother gave them to me and I fell in love with fantasy. In particular I love the range and diversity of characters.
Each character is well developed and easy to get attached to. The world inspires the imagination and for me set me on the path of creating my own worlds and loving dragons. Anne McCaffrey is easily my greatest influence and the standard by which I judge all other books. Dec 22, Rhianna Marks rated it liked it.
