Review | Dragonflight | Anne Mccaffrey

Updated: May 16, 2018



Tattered and battered this copy of Dragonflight by Anne Mccaffrey has flown to France, Africa and back to Australia. The first book in the Pern series, Dragonflight is a classic for all sci-fi and fantasy lovers alike.

Things I liked ✅ the world of Pern is interesting and original

✅ complex and believable characters with a headstrong female protagonist

✅ great romance subplot

✅ well-written, using a masterful command of the English language


Things I didn't like ✖ takes a little while to get started

✖ multiple character perspectives can get confusing

✖ can be confusing to know what is going on as a first time reader

Things to consider ➖ would liked to have seen Lessa and F'lar's romanced fleshed out more, but that's just my opinion as a fangirl! Rating 4.5/5🌟 Verdict


Discussion Dragons make me instantly like any book. What's your one thing that makes you instantly love a book?
