Book Review: Weyr Search by Anne McCaffrey

Weyr SearchWeyr Search by Anne McCaffrey
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Read for the 12 in 12 Challenge, the Big Fun in a Little Package Novella Challenge, the Women of Genre Fiction Challenge, and the Grand Mistresses of Genre Fiction Challenge.

This classic novella, which won the Hugo award for Best Novella in 1968 and was nominated for the 1967 Nebula, is where it all started, one of the greatest science fiction series of all time – the Chronicles of Pern.

In this story we are first introduced to classic characters Lessa, F’lar, F’nor, and their draconic companions. Pern and the dragons are established, and the conditions of the society are laid down. I can’t say enough good things about it. The story is complex one with a theme that might be described as the Serenity Prayer: “Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.”
