Anne McCaffrey's Pern is one of the most memorable worlds in science fiction and fantasy. Humans and their flying dragon companions live in fear of thread, a caustic, deadly material that falls sporadically from space. But when the thread doesn't fall for a long time, people become complacent, forgetting that it is the brave dragonriders who can save them from the periodic threat. But when the thread falls, human and dragon heroes must fight the scourge. This edition encompasses the first three unforgettable novels of McCaffrey's epic series: Dragonflight, Dragonquest, and The White Dragon.

I offer many thanks to Anne MaCaffery and her son Todd McCaffery who has picked up the reins of story telling with the Realms of Pern.
As for the Kindle Edition of this book, I am sorely disappointed in the typographical errors. In a time when we have simple spell checking on just about every application we use, it's depressing to see this digital media plagued with such inconsideration for the reader.
The spelling of the character names are misspelled, sometimes from paragraph to paragraph. There are major typographical mistakes in connection words that require the reader to read, and then re-read the entire sentence to discern the actual word intended as different words could change then entire feel and meaning of the sentence.
Paying roughly the same for this Kindle Edition as I would for a new mass-market paperback, I question why anyone would pay full price when a print copy can be acquired, used, at a faction of the cost.
The Kindle Edition is a sad disservice to the readers and fans of Anne McCaffery.
Del Rey and Random House Digital should be ashamed of themselves for releasing such a poor quality product!!
What is bad about the book is the fact that the publisher did not proof the digitization of the original text. While there aren't pages and pages of mispelled words there are enough to be distracting when you are reading.
Still, this is a must have book and I recommend it to anyone interested in acquiring it.
~Yes, there are typos and text issues…perhaps I am able to overlook them because I can get lost in the story. And what a great story it is!
~I would recommend this book…the whole series actually…to anyone who would like to get started on reading sci-fi fantasy. It will get you hooked.
