Read full description of the books Dinosaur Planet Survivors:Well, the title says it all, doesn't it? What did you expect? Some kind of dramatic escape from a dinosaur world? Sorry to disappoint. There are virtually no dinos at all, and there is virtually no action in this book, either.
I made it halfway, then skimmed. The majority of the book is so BORING as to be depressing to crack open. Virtually nothing happens of any importance, and any drama that actually exists is either completely glossed over, or written so poorly that you get no satisfaction out of it whatsoever.
The author doesn't seem to know what is important in the story. She doesn't write what you want to read. She skips right over those important parts, such as Lunzie meeting Sassinak for the first time. Other parts, the mundane details of gathering food or the internal monologue wondering how this or that group is going to react for the dozenth time, she always includes. What is the deal here? The writing style is just not very high level or skilled. I don't get it. It's like she was just allowed to churn out whatever she wanted due to her name, and she just got too caught up in her own world and in her own creations.
It's pretty sad when you're trying to force yourself to trudge through a book simply so you can add it to your Goodreads list. I should probably have quit much earlier on. But everybody has a point they are comfortable with adding it as "read", and for me that is the halfway point, so about all I can say good about this book is that it adds another one to my yearly total.
Read information about the authorAnne McCaffrey was born on April 1st, 1926, in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
Her parents were George Herbert McCaffrey, BA, MA PhD (Harvard), Colonel USA Army (retired), and Anne Dorothy McElroy McCaffrey, estate agent. She had two brothers: Hugh McCaffrey (deceased 1988), Major US Army, and Kevin Richard McCaffrey, still living.
Anne was educated at Stuart Hall in Staunton Virginia, Montclair High School in Montclair, New Jersey, and graduated cum laude from Radcliffe College, majoring in Slavonic Languages and Literatures.
Her working career included Liberty Music Shops and Helena Rubinstein (1947-1952). She married in 1950 and had three children: Alec Anthony, b. 1952, Todd, b.1956, and Georgeanne, b.1959.
Anne McCaffrey’s first story was published by Sam Moskowitz in Science Fiction + Magazine and her first novel was published by Ballantine Books in 1967. By the time the three children of her marriage were comfortably in school most of the day, she had already achieved enough success with short stories to devote full time to writing. Her first novel, Restoree, was written as a protest against the absurd and unrealistic portrayals of women in s-f novels in the 50s and early 60s. It is, however, in the handling of broader themes and the worlds of her imagination, particularly the two series The Ship Who Sang and the fourteen novels about the Dragonriders of Pern that Ms. McCaffrey’s talents as a story-teller are best displayed.
She died at the age of 85, after suffering a massive stroke on 21 November 2011.
