I thought I had read this one, but it didn’t seem familiar at all Another use for the dolphins is found around this time; while heading over to see Alemi, T’lion witnesses a strange boat docking near Paradise River.

The final third of the book is the best part. It really didn’t make any sense at all and just added unnecessary conflict.

The Dolphins of Pern

Another good Mccaffrey read. McCaffrey was obviously shooting for pathos here; unfortunately the effect is ludicrous, especially after ajne third or fourth adult, and I giggled through it. She was the worst kind of mother, projecting all of her own fears and prejudices on odlphins her children and failing to see how it was to their detriment.

This book gives some nice depth to events after the victory over the Red Star and adds a good element of the dolphins which are mentioned now and then before and it’s nice to see them finally embraced. Another chronicle of Pern.
