Catalyst By Anne McCaffery & Elizabeth Scarborough
on 1 October 2010
I am a dyed in the wool Anne McCaffery fan with all of her books which I often re-read my personal favourite being the Menolly Harper of Pern trilogy, so I look forward with much anticipation to a new book. Regretfully, I was very disappointed in Catalyst. The cats are cute and cuddly and I would highly recommend this book to the parents of 5 - 10 year olds.
But it is not an adult book! The plot is obvious and simplistic, there is none of that rich charactor development that is the trademark of her Pern or shell people books the plot is sketchy and unbelievable and it is a great shame as this could have been an interesting story
