This is one of the best books I've ever read – so much so that I've read it five times over the years. The Dragon Rider Trilogy, of which this is a one piece, is Anne McCaffrey's best work. The characters are not just memorable, but truly mythical. In her long-term history of the human settlement and evolutiuon of Pern – McCaffrey is as good as Tolkien or Asimov as creating a world, but without requiring belief in magic or enormous technological leaps – just people and their capacity to adjust to their environment. These would make absolutely compelling movies – or better yet a television series – particularly since computer effects have matured to the ability of creating believable dragons. Like Middle Earth, Oz, Barsoom and the Foundation, Pern is a place every scifi and fantasy fan should visit.

I loved this bbok. The first McCaffrey books I read were the Harper Hall Trilogy. After I read this book it cleared up a lot of my questions and now I am reading Dragonquest. I love Lessa F'Lar F'Nor and all the dragons.

This book is absolutely amazing. It was the first Anne McCaffrey book I read and I just loved it. After I read this book, I went on to read Dragonquest, the sequel. Just recently, I've gone back to read Dragonflight over again. It's even better the second time. Some of the things I didn't understand the first time through are so much clearer the second. If you like dragons, this series is a must.
