5.0 out of 5 stars Truly the best of the lot...
What can you say about the book that everyone including the characters have been waiting for. The chance to destroy the menace of thread forever. This amazing mix of science, action and dragons is truly the crowning glory of Anne Mccaffrey saga of Pern which i hope will never end. The books only get better with each passing novel and none of them are anything short of...

2.0 out of 5 stars not cat friendly
Although impressed by the dragon tales I had to stop reading the last one I bought as it was so anti-cat! I was sickened by the fact that the characters lamented the fact that the beautiful wild cat they had just murdered was in-milk, meaning kittens left without a mother. The characters just resented that it meant there were more about! I have not entered the world of...

What can you say about the book that everyone including the characters have been waiting for. The chance to destroy the menace of thread forever. This amazing mix of science, action and dragons is truly the crowning glory of Anne Mccaffrey saga of Pern which i hope will never end. The books only get better with each passing novel and none of them are anything short of exceptional, though it is easier to identify with some more than others. I loved how this book went from one character to another and was not at any moment overblown or annoying. Even amidst the scientific language i found myself learning along with the peoplt of Pern though i admittedly had more trouble than they. the thing i love the most though is the return to prominence of Jaxom and his beautiful Ruth, without whose help the atempt wouldnt be possible. The only thing I disliked was something terrible that happened in the last few pages and any true fan of Pern will agree with me that it is impossible not to cry at that moment. But despite my sadness and the wishing that it didnt happen it is a marvelous ending, and the tribute accorded to such a life as his was fitting to say the least. The fact that he will never be seen again in the novels except in remembrance is truly unsettling but i wouldnt change it because it is the most perfect ending to such a great book and as the book itself states there is 'a time for any purpose under heaven' I think i wrote the quote right if not bare with me i am writing this far away from my copy and havent woken up yet. All the Weyrs of Pern is a classic and should never be lost...

5.0 out of 5 stars The story continues, 28 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Continuing the story after the discovery of the Aivas. The familiar characters become bound up in the plans to rid Pern of the menace of Thread at source. We have heroes and villains and some sadness, making for a cracking good yarn in the best Pern tradition.
Characters have grown up somewhat as it should be, but the romance of the dragons is still there.

But what a story! Dragons and Fire-Lizards in space; space-age luddites doing cruel things; and kidnapping Robinton. Then the sadness of the ending which is also a beginning. I'm reading it again!

5.0 out of 5 stars Satisfaction personified!, 8 Aug 2013

This is a most enjoyable and satisfying book to read. It has a very good storyline which takes you through the book at a pace that you want to carry on reading even after the midnight hour has been passed. A book that leaves you with the feel good factor after you reach the last page and finally put out the light. Would certainly recommend to anyone looking for a story to loose yourself in and come out the other end replete.

5.0 out of 5 stars All The Weyrs Of Pern, 16 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What a brilliant story, told from all different perspectives. Funny and very sad all at the same time, from hope and fear and all human conditions. I will read this book many times.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning conclusion to 30 years of story telling, 13 April 2013
By 
Simply put this book is a fantastic conclusion to Anne's Dragonriders of Pern story. The books after this one never quite meet the mark except perhaps Dragons Blood which is also pretty amazing.

I had every Dragonbook in paperback and now I can have them on Kindle, with me to dip in and out of as I wish! Anne mcCaffrey has created a full, rich wonderful world. I would live there, even with its dangers. One book will not be enough. Save up and get them all!
