All The Weyrs Of Pern
by Anne Mccaffrey

View in Library Catalog



How to spot a great book! A- the book moves you emotionally B- It's hard to put down, immerses you C- At then end, you need it to continue All the Weyrs of PERN meets ALL of these marks. It's high rating, Hugo nomination and months on the NY Times best seller list support that. I knew where it was going so I stopped reading 5 pages before the end. Maybe if I don't read it, it won't happen? ?? Well, I did it. I read the last 5 pages and, as expected, my eyes burned, my heart broke and I grieved with the people, dragons and fire lizards of PERN. I knew it was coming since this was my 5th time in this book, yet it slew me again. ?? I have a new goal added to my list of things I may never survive to accomplish - I want to write a story as moving as this one, to make people care as much for my characters. I want to reduce my readers to a blubbering mound of snot, like this one does even after reading it 5 times!

A Buyer's Market

I love this book and the whole series -- rereading it again for the third or fourth time. I suggested the first book, A Question of Upbringing, for my book club and people were not enthusiastic. I think you have to love literary style, and his in particular, to enjoy the books, and also you have to be familiar with British novels and history in the first three-quarters of the last century. But he is so subtle, witty and never mean, unlike so many of his contemporaries, and so candid about the faults and oddities of his novelistic stand-in, Nicholas and so acute about his friends and the people he observes, that every reading is a pleasure.

I appreciate how creative Neal Shusterman is. Unsouled was realistic, but at the same time was unrealistic. The detail is fantastic.

Artemis Fowl Arctic Incident

Although Artemis is just as cunning as in the first book, The Arctic Incident was harder to follow and wasn’t as captivating.

I really enjoyed learning about the samurai culture and how it was like being a foreigner in Japan.

Harry potter returns for his fourth year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, along with his friends, Ron and Hermione. There is an upcoming tournament between the three major schools of magic, with one participant selected from each school by the Goblet of Fire. When Harry's name is drawn, even though he is not eligible and is a fourth player, he must compete in the dangerous contest. With the first task fighting dragons, and the second task of the Triwizard Tournament is to rescue something dear or important to the Champion which is being held by Merpeople deep in Hogwarts' lake. And the third task being dangers in a maze including a Blast-Ended Skrewt, a giant spider, and anti-gravity mist. The Triwizard Cup was located in the center of the maze, protected by a sphinx which posed a riddle. Harry saves Cedric once, but couldn't save him twice when Voldemort returns and kills him. And that is my short book review.
