    " Only 1 Pern story. :( "

    " A book made up of short stories by Anne McCaffrey. I was a little startled at first when the second story was written about a different world/different time than the first, but after I took a break between stories, I really enjoyed the book. It is a wonderful introduction to her many different writings. Though some of the stories are oddly disturbing, many of them leave you with a sense of hope, a smile on your face, and the satisfaction that comes from a proper outcome to the story. There aren't any manufactured happy endings here (though many stories end well). I would highly recommend this book to anyone interested in McCaffrey, well-written sci-fi stories, or short stories easily read in one sitting. "

    " When I grabbed this book in a hurry just before the library was about to close, I assumed it would be all Pern stories. I was a little disappointed, since what I was after was more Pern, but most of the stories were good. I'm not as much of a fan of "pure sci-fi" so those stories were a little harder for me to like. "

    " Only made it through the first four stories. I kind of liked the first one and will definitely be trying McCaffrey's novel Dragonflight, as the universe of Pern seems to have a lot of potential. Otherwise, the stories weren't terrible, I just couldn't get into them and decided to move on with my life. "
