Restoree by Anne McCaffrey Published: The over-the-top horror toward restorees of a kill-nearly-on-sight variety also doesn’t make a huge amount of sense.

From the Paperback edition. I haven’t read a lof of sci fi and certainly not from the 60’s but I tho I came up with this longterm plan to read Anne McCaffrey’s Pern series so willy nilly I started picking up her books in second hand shops. This book still stands up today! I wouldn’t recommend it as an introduction to her. Why is an out of print book so expensive as an e reader?

I remember being thrilled with this book when I first read it in the early 80s. This is an old-fashioned romance, in ways I do find dated, even eye-rolling. Her dawning awareness of her situation — or I guess I should say her reawakening consciousness — is beautifully described and is much more personally involved than the rest of the book.

For the younger me it was exciting and adventurous; the main character had been almost as bookish as I was and yet she ended up having an incredible adventure and was an active participant in a world- changing event!


All I want for Christmas is my Alien. And thank god the aliens turned her beautiful!

I was right to do so. She had two brothers: It still has rsstoree satisfying parts that I wish it could she could have rewritten it later on, with more polished writing and better scientific terminology. Their sexual relationship is definitely more attuned to the cultural norms of the s than today, as the lines of consent are not as clear-cut as one would like them to be.

I read this several decades ago but remember little about it. As the story continues, she becomes increasingly passive and spends a lot of time being reassured, patronised and used as a political tool by the men in the story.

She died at the age of 85, after suffering a massive stroke on 21 November The Mil remind me of something straight out of Lovecraft. But aside from their awful smell, we never see what the Mil look like.

The Mil remind me of something straight out of Lovecraft. Retrieved from ” https: The Death of Sleep. Delivered to the Aliens. Together they escape and set out to save Lothar from political enemies and all the human worlds from the Mil. It made me destoree just how old school this science fiction novel truly is.

In other words, the reader can easily experience what she’s experiencing and see what she’s seeing. The writing contains many sci-fi genre cliches and the science almost painfully basic and old rockets, Tel-Star, etc. The prevalence of old-fashioned slate use in so many of her sci-fi stories still frustrated and amuses me.

Secondly, it’s sexist, despite being a feminist book. I have read this, and many other McCaffrey books many many times. In which case, hat’s off to McCaffrey for pushing things forward for the science fiction genre, for women writers, and for readers.

I thought I had read all of her works, but somehow missed this one. The Dolphins resroree Pern.

Lists with This Book. Looking forward to reading this again. For the first part of the book I was completely captivated as Sara becomes more aware of restotee surroundings and the man she is caring for, and then as she and Harlan escape from a sanitarium and travel to relative safety.

The romance itself is not too bad – a little overly quick to establish, bu Sara, a country girl living in New York City, is kidnapped by aliens intent on stocking their larder. The relationship between Sara and Harlan is anen something out of a vintage romance novel, except that Sara has skills and talents and is a competent human being.

I loved it then and I love it now. It’s especially bad whenever the romantic interest is anywhere near our heroine.

I first read this as a teenager in the ’80’s.
