5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, better than the first.
As far as sequels go, this has to be the best I've read. It is not McCaffrey's best work, but a real page turner nonetheless. Since the protagonasts wake up 40 years after the first book ended, the plot is fresh (not good guys against bad guys revisted as with many sequels). The descendants of the original bad guys may not be bad at all, and McCaffrey draws the point...

2.0 out of 5 stars Not her best work
Like the Death of Sleep I do not think that this book is one of the better works of Anne McCaffrey. I had read almost all of her other books when I read this one, and I was very disappointed. It had a very hard time just finishing it. I would not recommend this book to anyone who is expecting something on par with Dragonriders of Pern Series or the Powers That Be Series...

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, better than the first., April 27 2000
This review is from: Dinosaur Planet Survivors (Mass Market Paperback)
As far as sequels go, this has to be the best I've read. It is not McCaffrey's best work, but a real page turner nonetheless. Since the protagonasts wake up 40 years after the first book ended, the plot is fresh (not good guys against bad guys revisted as with many sequels). The descendants of the original bad guys may not be bad at all, and McCaffrey draws the point beautifully that "the sins of the father should not visited upon the son." In addition, McCaffrey masterfully links these books to her other series involving Sassinak! It was a great tie in and answered many questions with surprising insights. To often, authors stories take place "galaxies apart." It's nice to see an author bring separate stories/series together without writing a 15 book saga. I recommend all McCaffrey's books, particularly her non-fantasy works such as "The Lady."

4.0 out of 5 stars Needed more dinos, again, April 13 2002

This review is from: Dinosaur Planet Survivors (Mass Market Paperback)
I am a fan of Anne McCaffrey, and I liked this book. But I am also a fan of dinosaur stories, and there were, again, not enough dinosaurs for me in this book. Understandable, given all the starship technology, aliens and such, but with a name like Dinosaur Planet Survivors, you'd expect more, well, dinosaurs. Again I doff my hat to Hopp's Dinosaur Wars and its sequel, Counterattack, as having better coverage of the big beasties. McCaffrey gets the nod for sheer imaginativeness.
