Highly recommended for anyone who loves science fiction, fantasy, or Anne McCaffrey.
A ripping good story.
And also remember. It is fiction set in a slightly dystopian framework, as was a lot of the science fiction written at the same time. Fiction, both science and fantasy has changed considerably in the sixty (yes, 60) years since published. And it was originally five short stories that were then worked together as a novel.
The story is rich in its environment and characters and while some would say that's it's dated, I would say its more the foundation for things to come in good sci-fi.
Anne McCaffrey has (as always in my opinion) crafted a well thought out world here with its residents rather well defined. From Helva and her pilots, their exploits, and their interactions you are drawn in their tale.
I would recommend the series as a whole!
