Overview

The Masterharper of Pern (Dragonriders of Pern Series #15) by Anne McCaffrey

In a time when the deadly scourge Thread has not fallen on Pern for centuries--and many dare to hope that Thread will never fall again--a boy is born to Harper Hall. A musical prodigy who has the ability to speak with the dragons, he is called Robinton, and he is destined to be one of the most famous and beloved leaders Pern has ever known.

It is a perilous time for the harpers who sing of Thread--they are being turned away from holds, derided, attacked, even beaten. In this climate of unrest, Robinton will come into his own. But despite the tragedies that beset his own life, he continues to believe in music and in the dragons, and he is determined to save his beloved Pern from itself--so that the dragonriders can be ready to fly against the dreaded Thread when at last it returns . . .

Just finished Masterharper of Pern, & was extremely pleased with it! I was familiar with Robinton from trilogy of Pern, (Dragonflight, Dragonquest, & the White Dragon). I was very enjoyable to see the life Robinton had growing up-the love of his mother, the difficulties of dealing with his father, his loves as he grew up, & the tragedies in his life. It was also very enjoyable, to see the other characters of Pern, as they grew up-F'Lon, F'Nor, F'Lar, Lessa, Goghe, Silvana, Petiron, & his mother, Merrilan.. I think that every reader of the Pern books should read this, to get the full picture of the very complex person Robinton is! Well worth the money!

Robinton is one of my favorite characters along with Lessa, F'lar, Jaxom, F'lessan Menolly and Sebell. You really got to know him in this book. For a wonderful man he led a harder life. It really got deep into his character. I love the harper spies! After reading about Pinch I was happy that Nip and Tuck were very involved! One of my favs in the series.

This is one of the best books in the series with well-defined characters and it is very readable. I love the series and this book in particular.

It is rare that a book brings tears to my eyes. McCaffrey has truly written a masterpiece. The life led by this remarkable charecter was not always a happy one, and that is portrayed so well that you feel his losses, rejoice at his triumphs. It really left me thinking, and after reading it you feel like you know Robinton.

If you love the Masterharper as much as the people of Pern you will want to read this book. It tells how he came to his position and explains much about the harper hall. It is a wonderful book that I could not put down. One of Anne McCaffery's best.
