Publisher's Summary

Day by day, the sentient planet is learning to recognize and understand the meaning of outside stimuli, to communicate its own needs and desires...even to use human speech. The Petaybeans have their hands full trying to protect their beloved planet from the sudden influx of tourists. Then some of Petaybee's staunchest champions are kidnapped.

missing sections of stories

the performance was great, but you can tell good size portions of the stories were deliberately left out. I can understand some parts being removed due to their sexual nature, but the rest just ruin the story.

The company took a wonderful collection of books,

cut the guys out of them and ruined a story from my favorite authors.

The mystery and occur base of the stories is greatly wounded. Thank goodness for a great reading by a distinctive and wonderful actress.

I used to be a fan of Ann MacCaffery

The abbrighements of part one threw off balance and I found the ending of part two very unsatisfying. As of the time I write this I haven't worked up the interest to listen to part three. It's sad because these stories touch on some important themes.

Good but abriged

I enjoyed this much but...having read the books multiple times...I was disappointed that many events in the original texts were omitted. For example Yannas first hunting experience in book one.

Great book

I am a huge McCaffrey fan and I love Marina Sirtis. At first though, it was difficult to listen to the narration. Once I was used to her accent, it was wonderful. A great story and the performance of the narration really brought it to life.
