I get what others say about it not adding to the overall plot of Pern May 14, Erik Akre rated it did not like it Shelves: This is the story about how one boy takes it upon himself to reestablish contact with these intelligent beings. Aramina was a character that I never really liked, but one that I felt sorry for. McCaffrey’s favourite characters from Benden ect do make a token appearance to wind up one plot thread, but I think McCaffrey loved them too much to ever completely leave them out, they are not central at least.

I wish they could have been reintroduced earlier. Oh I guess I’ll try it; and you buy it So you’ve read enough fantasy literature and taken enough trips to the bookstore to browse around and see what the genre has to offer.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Readis ends up in mccqffrey argument with his mother, who tells him that he cannot associate with dolphins if he wishes to remain in the Hold.

There’s a couple of anecdotes and characters I enjoyed I liked the dolphins and how they’ve carried on tradition. Many dolphins are dolhpins gathered, and Readis realises that Theresa is ” The Tillek “, the equivalent of Masterharper and leader of the pods.

Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. There’s a couple of anecdotes and characters I enjoyed I liked the dolphins and how they’ve ca As I reread Pern, I’m coming to the conclusion that McCaffrey would’ve been better off quitting while she was ahead and that Todd McCaffrey should never have been let at the universe.


Jul 11, Laura rated it liked it Shelves: I really like the brief paragraphs from the dolphins, I wish these could have been continued through out. A number of people realize practically simultaneously that the “shipfish” of Pern are actually dolphins who travelled from Earth with the first settlers.

Readis wants to play with the dolphins but Mccaffreu refuses to let him. Paperbackpages. With this backdrop we focus on the second part that is also history I really enjoy going back to Pern.

The Dolphins of Pern

Instead, Readis decides to remain in his cave and be a dolphineer with the pod who bring him a bell from the wreckage of one of the ships sunk in the First Pass. Alemi will not help Readis as he does not wish to go against Aramina, but T’lion, unaware of Aramina’s objections, perrn keen to assist Readis, and the two look into getting an “aqualung” constructed. The ending does seem to be a bit sudden but that might be me mccaffrdy more of the dolphins and less of the Toric situation but it’s a lovely ending with the dolphins and Readis finally being recognised.

Alemi then travels to Monaco Bay with the help of T’liona young bronze rider who conveyed him to Landing initially. No dividing line, no gradual drop off in quality, just one book that’s great, and the next book isn’t worth reading.

I like the dolphins almost as much as I like the dragons and that is saying something.

One more to go! View all 21 comments. Oh I guess I’ll try it; and you tge it for a buck fifty. The Dolphins of Pern was first published in But I know these are the threads of the next books and the evolving of Pern, so I shouldn’t complain.

Following annr, the dolphins’ sonar ability is tested on several patients by Persellanthe Healer at Eastern Weyr who even ends up treating an injured dolphin who is brought to him for treatmentand Master Oldive at Fort Hold.

The holders succeed in repelling the would-be immigrants, returning them to the Northern Continentand realize they can get the dolphins to track and identify the unauthorized ships. But that was Mel’s interpretation and I soon adjusted.

It’s written in McCaffrey’s usual style that actually makes me comfortable while tue about the problems the characters have mccaffrrey overcome. However, her adult female characters are stubborn, self righteous, and often down right mean. Now, none of that has anything really to do with the plot of this book. Sign In Don’t have an account?

It sits on your bookshelf for four months, gathering dust.

This novel concentrated more on the Southern continent and a small number of settlements and people there so there was less repetition than was starting to creep in to many of the latter books in the series.

That’s pretty much it! Dolphins were brought with the first settlers, and were an integral part of society. The book right before this one, “All the Weyrs Of Pern” was fantastic and startling and different and beautiful. Definitely don’t read it if you have never read any of the Pern books and want to view spoiler [The tactic for winding up Readis’ plot line was predictable, repetitious and incredibly unnecessary.

A fantastic addition to this series. Did i enjoy the dolphins? I also enjoy Readis as a character.
