  1. Arthur says:

    This was a fun sci fi book with really evocative world building I found myself thinking sometimes that Nimisha, the protagonist, was a little too good at everything and there was a loss of dramatic tension, but at the same time she s so likable you don t really care.

  2. Beth says:

    I m 85% sure I ve read this decades ago but not sure if it s still in my collection or it was a library borrow oO

  3. Anatoly says:

    Very reminiscent of Robert Heinlein s young adult series of books stories But with the strong female lead and supporting characters Unlike Heinlein s stories, however, no major character died.

  4. Hilary says:

    Slightlyspace opera than SF, but a fun read, especially if you want an Anne McCaffrey adventure with space travel, aliens and a touch of anthropology thrown in Set in the same universe as The Coelura, it s a good adventure story Slightlyspace opera than SF, but a fun read, especially if you want an Anne McCaffrey adventure with space travel, aliens and a touch of anthropology thrown in Set in the same universe as The Coelura, it s a good adventure story

    I didn t want this one to end What an old sook I am I thoroughly enjoyed this little Planetary Romance The biggest source of tension for me was not whether plucky Nimisha and the smelly castaways would ever get found on challenging Erehwon, but whether steadfast Caleb, taking four long years to find her, would only arrive to get his heart broken upon discovering she d shacked up with a stud And become the mother of the nation, what sWhat astonishing fecundity Mercifully, testostero I didn t want this one to end What an old sook I am I thoroughly enjoyed this little Planetary Romance The biggest source of tension for me was not whether plucky Nimisha and the smelly castaways would ever get found on challenging Erehwon, but whether steadfast Caleb, taking four long years to find her, would only arrive to get his heart broken upon discovering she d shacked up with a stud And become the mother of the nation, what sWhat astonishing fecundity Mercifully, testosterone and boredom took their course on the way there and some other little space tottie kept that spot warm A tad convenient really Rather like the bull dyke captain s itchy exit Not that I m splitting body heirs This was very entertaining A testament to the late Anne s excellent storytelling really, because this is a story without an antagonist Her cosmetic surgery addled half brother didn t count because we never actually met him He was only ever referred to Ditto Lady Whats her name, his bitch mother I guess the pterodactyls behaved antagonistically, along with the giant slugs, but they weren t strictly characters, lets be honest No, basically, this is book full of people and Shim acting well Noble behaviour followed by yetnoble behaviour And it works I loved the Shim Temporarily forgotten how to spell them but that hasn t reduced my affection any Also loved Nimisha s glamorous mum She deserves her own planetary romance, I say More power to her

    This is one of Anne McCaffrey s Robinson Crusoe stories, and much as I love the early books, I found this one dull because it recycled her favourite motifs a place you get stuck in with a chap, lots of lovely stuff you can use on the planet and loot from the spaceships, people who become your pals, some horrid people who don t understand and some super aliens I m not saying there s anything wrong with all this, you understand, it s just all there was I did like the idea of the heroine s fa This is one of Anne McCaffrey s Robinson Crusoe stories, and much as I love the early books, I found this one dull because it recycled her favourite motifs a place you get stuck in with a chap, lots of lovely stuff you can use on the planet and loot from the spaceships, people who become your pals, some horrid people who don t understand and some super aliens I m not saying there s anything wrong with all this, you understand, it s just all there was I did like the idea of the heroine s family tattoo around her neck On the 14th birthday a real necklace is put on the neck in a debutante type ceremony No weddings in this world There is nothing wrong with the book, really so if you like her later books, and don t want a plot, you ll like this one

    May or may not have read this originally, about when it first came out Set in the same universe as novella The Coelura, but was apparently never followed up with a sequel I can see why while Nimisha is an interesting enough character, yet another exciting new colony world with critters that want to kill you and undaunted colonists who will survive anyway McCaffrey did that before, and better.

  8. Amy Weiner says:

    This was not one of McCaffrey s better books, with a very slow start as characters were introduced but not in a way that made me care for them The pace of the story picked up about half way through and was better at engaging my attention There were a number of mentions that were a bit heavy handed at providing jumping off places for sequals or spin offs I don t think most of those added to the story.

  9. MJ says:

    Just love this book Read it years ago SO NOT something I would read at the time just to make a friend happy And I can t tell you how many times I ve reread this one since The only thing wrong with it, is that it is a stand alonecould def read a whole series or two on these guys 1018 0819

    This is not the sort of thing I would read and I probably wouldn t have gotten all the way through it I ended up listening to it on Audio and the narrator was excellent I enjoyed it a lotthan I thought I would.
