    The Dragon Riders of Pern

    Advertisements
    Does anyone know which book to start with for this series? I really want to read it, but there are so many I'm not sure what the order is. I've also heard that there are prequel type books you don't really have to read, is this true?

    TIA!!!

    EDIT: OH no! Anne McCaffrey died last month I had no idea!

    AHHH I OWN THEM ALL!!!!

    I would start with...oh man, you know that's hard. Because the original book is Dragonflight, I believe. But then she had some prequel books, like one (Dragonsdawn) when the settlers originally came to Pern and genetically engineered the dragons to fight the Thread. Hmm...oh heck, I still say start with Dragonflight!

    EDITED TO CORRECT BOOK TITLE!

    I absolutely adore this series. I started reading them when I was in middle school and was obsessed with them forever. Dragonflight is definitely a great one to start with.

    WHAT? NO!!! I LOVED those books. I only read the first few though. When I was younger. I should add them to my "to read" list.
