I have read these books many, many times. I think the Harper Hall trilogy are my favorite of the Pern books. ( )

Did a quick re-read of Dragonsong. I was in love with this series and the Dragonrider books in my early 20's and re-read them a few times, but not in the past couple of decades. I've always recommended this book to teens and YA and now remember why. It does an excellent job of showing the feelings of alienation and confusion as young people try to figure out how they will fit into the world--especially when they don't fit into their natural communities. McCaffrey does such a great job of SF/F world-building, that you sometimes miss the underlying universal humanity of her writing. Still highly recommended! ( )

First words
Almost as if the elements, too, mourned the death of the gentle old Harper, a southeaster blew for three days, locking even the burial barge in the safety of the Dock Cavern.
