Critic Reviews

"The author has created memorable, strong characters who are believable and well fleshed out. This is McCaffrey at her best." ( School Library Journal)
"Narrator Jean Reed-Bahle reads all three. She is an excellent reader - her low-pitched voice is expressive and easy to listen to." ( AudioFile)

seems odd

it seems like chapters were cut down and whole chapters were omitted from the story, it could have been just editing errors, however it did effect my enjoyment as I have read the story in the past several times. eh... its ok

The good and the bad of Anne McCaffrey

As always, McCaffrey creates an incredible world and then pokes holes in the story trying to prove a point. this breaks the immersion but not so much that the story is unenjoyable.

Such nice kids

A heartwarming tale of teens who have emerged from Bildungsroman at age 16 and lead the universe in dealing with the Borg. Makes me really wonder why we haven't staffed the Intern'l Space Station with mid teens. There is a large amount of world building, so much so that reading the prior books is really not necessary. I did like the Pern stories better.
