Read full description of the books:
During the reading of this book, I couldn't put it down. At the end, I basically wanted to throw it across the room, cry out my hate of it and pretend I'd never read it. That being said, it wasn't because I hated the book itself. I hated the irrevocably sad ending that nearly left me in tears. I don't normally get that way with most books, but I had become attached to Robinton.
They have done what they set out to do in the beginning of the series- destroy the threat of "Thread". However, this has fundamentally changed the Pernese society in that the AI they uncovered of the first settlers begins what could be considered a minor industrial "re-revolution". Many Holders were reluctant at first, though some held on to that reluctance to the point of blatantly attempting to sabotage the efforts of AIVAS and those who were learning from...him/it.
In great courage, as always, Jaxom and the white dragon Ruth come through in the end with all the weyrs of Pern to do what must be done.
I only wish that Anne McCaffrey were still alive to write more.

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.
