The dragon series are my all time favourite books,
By A Customer
This review is from: Dragonquest (The Dragon Books) (Paperback)
May I suggest that Amazon suggest a reading order for on-line buyers new to the series - .
In the meantime - I would suggest new readers start with Dragon Flight.
Problems on planet Earth have prompted an intrepid group of settlers to travel many light years on a one way trip to colonise a distant world.
The intended lifestye of the settlers is agricultural and advanced technology will have no part to play. Accordingly the settlers (only newly accustomed to life without machines) are devastated when the organic menance on their new planet Pern makes itself known.
Dragon Flight tells the story of how Dragons are developed to help man in the fight against 'Thread'.
Anne McCaffrey creates a complex and entirely believable world against this backdrop.
I cannot reccommend this book and those which follow highly enough.
