Looking at it from a more mature perspective, I think that I would be most likely to recommend it to people of about the age that I was when I read it. I think that for an "older" lady, Ms. McCaffrey has an incredible insight into the minds and thoughts of the young, although with such a young outlook, I hesitate to call her an "older" person at all, as she seems to prove the old adage that you are as old as you feel.
All of her books have the (possibly simplistic) core of good people getting the things that they need in life and the bad ones getting their just deserts, but unless you are such a hardened cinic that you cannot appreciate a happy ending, I would not hesitate to recommend her books to anyone (except those who turn their noses up at SF & F as something wierd and culty).
If, like I hadn't, you've never read a science fiction before, you could do worse than start here.
I first read the Tower & Hive series when I was a teenager and loved the rich characters, the ways in which they interacted and how imaginative the storylines were. Yes, the first section of "Damia" covers an era which was previously described in part of "The Rowan", but from a completely different point of view, adding a much more substantial understanding of the family unit and why they were so closely bound together. It was essential to have this section so that certain characters became more solid in the reader's mind.
I loved reading this as a teenager and could relate to the characters, but I also loved re-reading it as an adult, whereby certain aspects of the story took on a whole new meaning. And that is the beauty of this series - such a wide appeal. I thoroughly enjoyed curling up with a cup of tea and reading "Damia" - both times. And I will happily read it again!
