As a teenager I was not as fond of this book as the other two. I think most of my problem lay in the fact that I wanted more Menolly. She was like me. And all I got was this stupid boy. As I have grown older I have come to appreciate this book more (although I still want more Menolly). The book looks at what happens when you do not speak up when something or someone is mistreating you. I also think it shows how completely clueless adults can be sometimes. And how important it is for adults to tell teenagers what is going on. To communicate with them.

Piemur is the friend of Menolly in the Harper Hall. His reason for being there: his unnaturally high-pitched, golden voice that is absolutely amazing. Piemur knew his voice wouldn¿t be that way forever, and he was right. Just before Master Domick¿s new ballad about Lessa, which he wrote specifically for Piemur to sing Lessa¿s part, his voice suddenly changes when he hit puberty. Piemur is afraid that he is now going to be kicked out of Harper Hall, but Master Robinson has other plans. Piemur is now going to be a drum apprentice and is going to work for the Masterharper. This is different, but it¿s good to Piemur.But like Menolly when she arrived, things started to get complicated. His peers hate him for the same reason Menolly¿s peers hated her: he is too good. While the rest of the class struggled, he flew by the rest of them with no trouble at all. Also, Piemur has a problem with speaking his mind, and lately, it¿s been getting him into much trouble. Also, he really wants a fire lizard, and Menolly promised an egg of her golden fire lizard, Beauty, when she mates. But both of them know that that promise won¿t happen, since Menolly has no control over who gets Beauty¿s eggs. In this final book of the Harper Hall Trilogy, chaos breaks loose and the madness over the fire lizards increases.At first when I learned that this book was more about Piemur and not about Menolly, I groaned and thought, wow, this is going to be bad. But was I wrong. It was better than both [Dragonsong] and [Dragonsinger]. Why? It¿s was more surprising. There were more twist and turns. I¿m glad I didn¿t pay attention to the back, because it told the whole plot of the book. [Dragondrums] was the perfect ending to a perfect trilogy!Rating: Five Stars *****

The harper Hall Trilogy is my favorite set by McCaffrey and interestingly the first books I read by her. I love dragons and there for dragon stories, particularly ones were dragons are not mindless monsters of destruction, so it would be odd for me not to like these books. The story is very original and the characters well written. If your not sure of getting into the Pern books, this is the series to read! Dragondrums is the last in this set and it does not disappoint, well maybe the fact that its such a short book.

Because this book focuses on Piemur instead of Menolly, it doesn't quite feel like the third book in a trilogy, though it does contain many characters in common with the first two books. On its own, it is not bad, it's just not on a par with the first two of the trilogy which are among the finest of the Pern books.

The novel Dragondrums is volume three in the Harper Hall Trilogy. The first two novels revolve around Menolly, a young woman with a gift for music who can not persue her dream of becoming a harper because women are not aloud to become harpers. This story is about Piemur, a friend of Menollys who lives with her at the Harper Hall. He has a beautiful singing voice, but when it starts to change he has to find a new life for himself. The Master Harper sends him to the drum heights to learn drum language, which the halls use to communicate. He also becomes a spy to help findout why the Oldtimers, who were banished to the south, are trading with northern holds. This is a great adventure story with Piemur getting in and out of trouble. It's nothing like the first two novels where the story was about Menolly finding her place in life. Menolly is in this story, but only as a minor character. The novel was a fun action filled read.

Not as good as the first two. The story focuses on a different character, but it wasn't bad.
