I am so very glad I got my copy from the library and didn't pay for it. "Dragongirl" seems to have been written with no specific plot goals in mind. The story just rambles on, with a strong assumption that you have read the previous books in the series and can remember minor details and characters from a couple of books before. And which dragon goes with which rider????? With this many characters, some type of key or index should be provided.

The editing is also poor. Something happens, which is not explained except in passing; it is not mentioned again for 50 pages, then all of a sudden it is said to be a major event, which of course everyone knew everything about. But still not explained!! Arghh!

I did not finish the book but gave up in disgust - a rare occurrence for me.

my reading speed is getting slower & slower, but I still enjoy my books. I'm really enjoying DragonGirl. I felt I was slogging thru Todd McCaffreys other books, but this book is the reward for force feeding myself on the previous books. The pace seemed somewhat off in the previous books, but this one is less choppy, a much smoother pace. It definitely ties up loose ends. & explains some things I missed or just did not comprehend in the previous novels

I love the Dragonriders of Pern series...and recently re-read them all, including the Todd McCAffrey ones. Generally I like his as well as or more than the originals. I liked this book too, but it did drag at times...
the plot is good, and I do look forward to the next offering,which will be coauthored by Anne McCaffrey.
