Customer Review

2.0 out of 5 stars The author has moved to a new planet, 6 Jun. 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Freedoms Landing (Mass Market Paperback)
Anne McCaffrey has moved on from Pern and now has a group dropped down (unwilling) on a new planet, Botany. Unfortunately, the book has the characteristics of a book rushed into print by an established author for her publisher. The story starts out well but then goes downhill. The involuntary colonists, dropped down into a hostile environment, magically accomplish things in weeks that would take normal people years. This seems to be another case of an author that has lost all sense of time (perhaps bored with a slow pace and rushing to move on). The story is left unfinished, leading into another book to be written. I read what must have been the first printing of the hard cover edition and the editing, in places, was atrocious. Don't publishers edit for basic grammar anymore?
