This was the first dragon book I had listened to, I read all the others years ago. I found it hard to keep track of so many different characters especially when the reader pronounced names differently to the way I had stored them in my memory, but I am sure that is just my 83 year old brain having problems. otherwise a good story, lots of action and a satisfactory ending. I shall listen to it again soon and am sure will enjoy it more.

I am a big Dragons of Pern fan and have read most Anne McCaffrey books. Previously they have all been excellent but this simply isn't worth the time.
I found it to be boring which wasn't helped at all by the narration which is bland and dull. There is very little proper characterisation which has always been an Anne McC strength in her books.
I am really struggling listening to it and I am getting to the stage of not completing the book. This has only happened twice in over 40 years as an avid book reader.
Such a pity.
This story was overly depressing, and used the Time Travel far too much. Honestly, this book was needlessly depressing, and I don't know that I'm looking forward to the next book. I gave it a three out of five, mostly from sentimentality, but really the story probably deserves a one. The performance, though, if there was a way to give a negative amount of stars I would do it. Emily Durante is the worst narrator I've ever heard, and I've had an account for three years now. If she narrates the next book, I might just skip it despite the fact that Anne McCaffrey was my favorite author when I was younger. I wish Todd would have been more like his mother in his writings... But I suppose that was too much to hope for.

What did you like best about Dragon's Time? What did you like least?
It's going to be a chore to get through this book. I love this series but wish it were read by the past narrator.
What didn’t you like about Emily Durante’s performance?
I'm sorry but I just hate listening to this narrator. She has just one manner of speaking that does not change through the entire book. Her range is just not there and it becomes a chore to keep up with which character is speaking and what the drama is. Flat, unemotional and boring.
