Loved the book - Hated the boring drone of the narration
No compare - the books fall into the Dragonriders of Pern series
Slow - boring - words mispronounced, just awful. Gave up after about 2 hours. I have Dragon Singer and Dragon Drums by the same narrator but have not bothered to listen.
Already done - Dragon Singer & Dragon Drums
Try Anne McCaffrey's Freedom series. Much better.
