Harper Hall of Pern by. Anne McCaffrey. This is the second book in the Harper Hall Trilogy and it follows Menolly as she comes to the Harper Hall to become and apprentice. I absolutely love this character. McCaffrey takes us along to Harper Hall with a 15-year old's viewpoint and all the anxieties, self-doubt, and worldviews that would have come with one with such a sheltered childhood. We (and by we I mean the reader through the main character of Menolly) meet and interact with the adults with the fear, awe, and uncertainty that would have marked such meetings.

Dragonsinger is the second book of the Harper Hall Trilogy in the Dragonriders of Pern series by Anne McCaffrey. Dragonsinger was first published by Atheneum in February 1977. The American Library Association in 1999 cited the two early Pern trilogies (Dragonriders and Harper Hall), along with The Ship Who Sang, when McCaffrey received the annual Margaret A. Edwards Award for her lifetime contribution in writing for teens. Dragonsinger placed ninth for the annual Locus Award for Best Novel.

Yet the great dragons of Pern, mounted by the stalwart dragonriders, scour the skies with fire to destroy the deadly Thread and save the planet.

McCaffrey's work is nigh well on par with Tolkien's, although it is less well organized. Tol-milui, February 8, 2009.

It is Wonderful!
Love the product thanks
The single star is for the Kindle edition; the original, paper version gets five stars.

This is a wonderful story; the Harper Hall trilogy is my favorite of Anne McAffrey’s Pern series, and I've read and re-read these books over and over again...which is probably why I noticed precisely how horrible the Kindle version is. Words are missing...entire sentences are missing...sentences crucial to the story line and poignant parts of the story are completely botched. Some of the parts of the story which would normally elicit an emotional reaction are rendered lukewarm at best by the fact that the sentences and passages were copied into the Kindle edition half-complete. What I find particularly irritating about this is that with paper books, I shop in used bookstores to complete the collections I most enjoy; on Kindle, I am forced to pay full price. In other words, I paid far more for this steaming pile of roadapples than I paid for the paper version of the book, which is well-written, engaging, and one of my very favorite stories, and there is no way to return the useless thing. I would like, eventually to have the entire Pern series on Kindle so I can engage with this fascinating, creative world whenever the mood suits, but I will not waste any more of my money until these issues are fixed, the fixes are advertised, and upgrades are made available to those of us who shelled out a portion of our hard-earned paychecks for this...cowpie. Until that happens, don't waste your money; pop into a used bookstore and get the paper version, or even buy it new. It's well-worth it.

It's like somebody left the Kindle version out during a threadfall. Whatever lazy apprentice copied it ought to be put on water rations for at least a couple weeks...and the journeyman editor who was supposed to be supervising should be barred from the hold. Seriously. Can we do that?

That said, if you're new to the series, I highly recommend this story in the paper version. However, you should start with Dragonflight and DragonQuest before reading the Harper Hall Trilogy (Dragonsong, Dragonsinger, which follow Menolly's development as a character, and Dragondrums, which tells Piemur's story). The stories happen during the same timeframe (mostly), but the events in this trilogy will make more sense if you read the other two first. The White Dragon should be read after this trilogy--that will make more sense, then, as well. Part of the genius of this series is that, like Mercedes Lackey's Valdemar series, an entire world has been created and the various books, trilogies, etc. take place within different periods of "history" or the "present", with some stories, such as the Harper Hall Trilogy, following the story lines of individual characters within the context of the larger world events which take place in the other books. Of these, Menolly and Piemur, the protagonists of the Harper Hall Trilogy, are two of my very favorite characters. As characters are developed in the earlier books, their story lines merge and fit into the larger plot and timelines of the series. It's a really enjoyable diversion. I highly recommend it...IN PAPER FORM.
Very enjoyable.
First things first.
Don't take the three-star rating as a gauge of how I feel about the story--I love this story to pieces, and have since I was around 13 years old.
Menolly is a wonderful character, and the environs of the Harper Hall are a delightful place for her to explore as she struggles to find her place in a world that is reluctant to embrace someone with her talent.
This is a lovely, thoughtful, mature story, written with a simplicity and grace that will leave it as a warm and gleaming treasure in your memory, one you can come back to and re-read every two or three years and be enchanted anew.
Five stars for the story, all the way.

No, the deduction of two stars is entirely the fault of this edition. Whoever put together this Kindle version should be flogged, because they have seriously damaged this story. As someone who has read and adored the print version many, many times, I can tell you that details matter. Emphasis matters. Little things like punctuation and italics MATTER.
I can only imagine some poor intern being assigned the 'chore' of creating this edition, along with a stack of other titles, and then simply slogging through it with only the barest attention paid to things like a simple spellcheck.
The result is something that still holds much of the charm of the story as it was written, but the visible scuffs and scratches and chips have stripped away some portion of the magic here, and that is a crime.

Please, please, oh soulless publisher/corporation/machine/entity: give us an updated version of this, where the author's intent is more properly conveyed.
The kindle edition is terrible. Words, names, probably entire sentences and paragraphs are simply missing. I have sections where someone says something but there's no way to know what was said and a couple times who said it. Someone will "charge across the from the" or be told "don't about it." It's fairly obvious this book was scanned and not edited, which is a terrible thing to do to such a beloved series and author. No wonder I couldn't get the digital book from my library, they wouldn't sully their collection with such a poor copy of a wonderful work. It's hard to get lost in the story when you're simply lost trying to understand what's missing from it.

I love the series, I've reread it frequently since I first picked it up 15 years or so ago and I was angered and frustrated at what the kindle edition has to offer.
