Start at the beginng of Anne's books if you can, and that will make this book part of treasured series of books. Todd has written in the same style as Anne and has such a good way of making the stories work.
Read and enjoy and you will fall under the spell of Pern and those living on it.....hard to put down!
For those who have been reading her work for many years, this should fill in the knowledge gaps nicely. This book is written in a very personal way, with family pets and life changes included. The middle son of the author does a good job painting a picture of Anne's life outside of being a career writer as well as explaining her writing and publishing struggles and eventual success.
It was nice to see the other, less business side of a woman that most fantasy authors and readers still consider one of the finest writers to have ever graced our planet. Even for someone who has not experienced her work, this book captivated my attention.
A good book, my only criticism would be that it is very short.
This review is based on a complimentary copy from the publisher and provided through Netgalley. All opinions are my own.
I read this in a little over 1 1/2 hours and found it very shallow. A pity, as I have always found Anne McCaffrey's books very enjoyable and I was looking forward to an interesting read.
All in all, I would not recommend this to any except collectors, and then only for completeness. Not even a bibliography included. For a source on information, better see 'The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction /Clute & Nichols'
Sorry Todd, but a definite miss. Better luck next time.
