The beautiful planet Pern seemed a paradise to its new colonists - until unimaginable terror turned it into hell. Suddenly, deadly spores were falling like silver threads from the sky, devouring everything - and everyone - in their path. It began to look as if the colony, cut off from Earth and lacking the resources to combat the menace, was doomed. Then some of the colonists noticed that the small, dragonlike lizards that inhabited their new world were joining the fight against Thread, breathing fire on it and teleporting to safety.

Would you consider the audio edition of Shades of Grey to be better than the print version?

Better... no. But it is still very good.

What did you like best about this story?

The depth with which the story is told, this is a book that can always be re-read / re-listened to.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

this is a great story but the delivery is awful, there is almost not variation in tone and the whole thing is rushed.

What did you like best about this story?

it is a fun, well written story.

Would you be willing to try another one of Trevor White’s performances?

absolutely not, awful.

Do you think Catch 22 needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

no
