Dragonriders of Pern

One of my favourite fantasy series as a teenager was the Dragonriders of Pern by Anne McCaffrey. I read the books over and over again.

Then I moved abroad as an adult and gave away most of my paper books. Since then I have felt the urge to re-read some of them, but haven‘t — due to the fact that I would have had to buy the books again.

I recently decided to buy a paper version of the first trilogy again…

The Dragonriders of Pern (Dragonriders of Pern, #1-3)
by Anne McCaffrey

I am still waiting for this omnibus to arrived at my local bookstore, as I am trying to support my local… A buddy read with my favourite GoodReads buddies is in the making…

This omnibus contains my favourite books of the series:

The White Dragon (Pern, #3)
by Anne McCaffrey

My all-time-favourite Pern novel. The ultimate underdogs of Pern. The rider that should never have become a rider and the little dragon was a discard from the get-go. So they stick it to all of them and show the finger to those snobby other riders, worthier dragons and assorted (s)nobility…

If I still like the writing, I might get the next trilogy as well, when the new issue/omnibus of it comes out in paper in September…

Harper Hall of Pern Trilogy: Dragonsong; Dragonsinger; Dragondrums
by Anne McCaffrey

The Harper Hall books with Menolly and Robinton also were some of my favourites. Those two were my favourite characters, besides Jaxom and his white dragon.

Have you ever read any of these books? Which book of the series is your favourite? Have you read any of the never books, penned by Todd McCaffrey and how do they compare?
