Most of the short fiction has been collected in two volumes or incorporated in one of the novels, so Dragonriders of Pern is sometimes identified with the 24 books.

Then there are dragons with their riders, born to fight the parasitic threads that fall from the sky when the red star passes over Pern.

Anne McCaffrey (not Todd) has built such a wonderful world that when you finish the series you feel like so many of these people are your friends, and you just know Pern really exists out there, just waiting for us to re-discover it. I love "All the Weyrs of Pern" because it ties the current population to their "ancestors" after they discover AIVIS, a voice activated computer system that holds a lot of their history, and a possible way out of the dilemma that they have faced all their lives

All the history of the people of Pern was there

All the history of the people of Pern was there. Dragonholders, Lord Holders and Craftmasters crowded into the tiny inner room to learn the secrets of their beginnings. Ana AIVAS had other gifts to offer - stored information of old crafts that had been forgotten, of medicine, music and technology. Bu the greatest promise AIVAS offered was the chance to rid Pern of Thread forever. All the great ones of Pern began the long and arduous task of learning just how to operate the incredible plan - a plan of such daring and epic proportions that both dragons and riders would be put at risk.

Science Fiction/Fantasy. This the 11th book of the series Dragonriders of Pern. It follows immediately from the final scene of Renegades of Pern, in which the Admin building from Pern's first generation of colonists is discovered, along with an advanced computer called AIVAS (Artificial Intelligence Voice Address System), at the Landing site that is being excavated. AIVAS has remained undisturbed since the events of Dragonsdawn some 2500 years earlier and, in addition to holding a huge volume of stored information long since lost to the Pernese society, claims to be able to eliminate the threat of Thread forever. The Weyrs, led by Lessa and F'lar, enthusiastically embrace this possibility, and with the support of the Holds (led in particular by Jaxom) and the Crafthalls (championed by Masterharper Robinton) proceed to implement the ambitious plan under the careful guidance of AIVAS. Aivas itself had been programmed to speak with a masculine-analogue, inquisitive, somewhat humorous personality, which gave the impression of a light-hearted counsellor to the Pernese, who have no real concept of what artificial intelligence entails.

This review is for the CD audiobook version only. I've been a fan of the Pern series going way back, and I've read the books a number of times. I thought it would be nice to have the CD version for long car trips. Unfortunately, the audiobook version is terrible, entirely due to the guy reading it. I have no idea who he is, but the is virtually unlistenable. He reads with a slow, dull cadence as if he were reading the book for preschoolers. Imagine Mr. Rogers reading it and it will give you some idea. Worse, he insists on doing 'voices' for the characters. Every Weyrleader has some inexplicable southern accent, while all the female characters have a bizarre falsetto. The worst is Robinton, who speaks so slooowly and with such drawn out spacing for the words that even Alan Rickman would tell him to get on with it. Seriously, he sounds like Goliath from the old Davey and Goliath claymation series. "Well... Iii doon't knooow daaveeey".. I had intended to get the audio version of the rest of the series, over time. But too many are read by this same guy, and while a 3 year old might enjoy it, anyone older than that is going to want to shred this CD after the first half hour of listening to this guy fight his was through the simplest sentences. Imagine the worst actor you have ever seen chewing the scenery like Jaws while simultaneously dozing off.
I have to say too that it's gotten harder to suspend disbelief when it comes to the story itself. Having set up the world of Pern over so many previous books, once Aivas gets involved, the story jumps along in ways that don't make much sense, and the character of Aivas makes even less. A computer that formulates a plan but won't tell anyone what it is? A computer that at times is just a machine and at others seems to have some kind of emotional awareness? That spouts bible passages to a society with no organized religion and calls the bible the greatest book ever written? The entire CD is just painful.

Such an awesome conclusion to this specific storyline. I’ve read this book (as well as all of the others) countless times over again since I was first gifted a copy of Dragonflight 33 years ago. This particular book tells the epic story of all the weyrs coming together to destroy their ancient enemy. So much happens in this book including learning some of the ancient history of pern and the dragons, along with the ongoing fight against threadfall. If you’ve read Dragonflight, Dragonquest and the White Dragon, this is a must read. It picks up right where the White Dragon leaves off. Two thumbs up for this book, as well as all of the dragon rider novels!

The Dragonriders of Pern are some of my very favorite stories. Anne McCaffrey (not Todd) has built such a wonderful world that when you finish the series you feel like so many of these people are your friends, and you just know Pern really exists out there, just waiting for us to re-discover it. I love "All the Weyrs of Pern" because it ties the current population to their "ancestors" after they discover AIVIS, a voice activated computer system that holds a lot of their history, and a possible way out of the dilemma that they have faced all their lives. I would recommend starting with the first three books first, so that you have a foundation for the story. Once you start, it is hard to put any of them down.

With this the finale of the Dragon riders of Pern. Lessa and F'lar as Weyr leaders of Benden along with Jaxom, rider of Ruth the highly unique white dragon the end to Thread is with in grasp with the help of AVAIS a computer left by the settlers of Pern and only recently discovered after 2500 turns. It will take Crafts and Holds all working together as well as all the dragons of Pern to destroy the destructive Thread,. Meanwhile there are those who fear the changes and technology AVAIS has brought to Pern and some will risk anything even the life of the beloved Master Harper Robinson to force the destruction of AVAIS.

If you want more of the dragon riders after a long time away, I would suggest this book, but only after re-reading the initial trilogy. I would say that it is a must-read for Pern-heads. Anne McCaffrey was ahead of her time, along with a few others who sowed many of the seeds that fantasy and sci-fi authors reaped after them. Get it, and read it. It's not a masterpiece, but it does in a real and human way answer the question that many of us have after engaging with characters in an excellent saga: "I wonder what happened to all those people?"

I admit that this is a re read for me having force fed myself all the Pern series through this offering in the 1990s. Nobody can read this as a stand alone novel and fully appreciate the work, it is decades of world building and backstory. I understood the blending of the characters and the reveal of the Avis entity to allow some sort of resolution to the epic series. The franchise has no doubt been passed on to family members with a keyboard and a passion for dragons. I enjoyed this culminating tale by Anne McCaffrey, while ending bitter sweet. The characters were all welcome to my reading chambers, kindle.

I read most of Anne's books when they were first printed, and read most in a single sitting.

I recently read several of her son's books and wondered how I could have enjoyed the original books so very much, so I re-read several (in fact the first seven Perm stories she wrote) of the originals and discovered the problem. Anne was a magnificent writer her son is no writer at all. The one problem with the Perm tales is the mistake Anne made in not finding at least a good writer for more tales. I applaud Todd attempt but cannot enjoy his results.

Any book by Anne is worth its price and more, this one is no exception. I wish I could give the series ten stars.
