"Read Dragonflight and you're confronted with McCaffrey the storyteller in her prime, staking a claim for being one of the influential fantasy and SF novelists of her generation - and doing it, remarkably, in the same novel" (SFX)

With F'lar and Lessa as the hero and heroine, the book quickly captures the readers attention and the wonderful dragons they ride are a magical and magnificent part of their story.
It is an epic tale, telling of battles, riders, armies and a biological enemy that only the dragons can destroy. It has everything - including adventure and romance.
I can't wait to re-read the whole series. I promise you that Anne McCaffrey's books will tell you how humans arrived on this Earth like planet called Pern. How they bred the dragons and developed one of the most unique communities ever to feature in English literature.
I feel like most reviewers must be reviewing the book based on their memory of it, or perhaps the subsequent books. I can only take this by itself, and as such, I don't think it merits the sort of rating that it has been given.
The intrigues are pretty childish compared to something like Game Of Thrones, and beyond that a lot of what's left is a book where the author tells us how foolish and selfish everyone was not to have the same faith in old stories / feelings of premonition as the main characters. Unfortunately this leaves the characterization a bit flat, because there aren't really compelling antagonists, and the author has a bad habit of naming characters similarly, making it more difficult to work out who is who at the start (F'lar / Fax / F'nor).
I enjoyed this book, characters were nicely covered and story line was well done.
Now need to get next book.
