How I star them:
-- DREADFUL. Don't read even if your only other option is is staring at the wall.(** means it's a re-read)
-- not really worth the time it takes to read it, but if you're superbored...
-- pretty good, nothing outstanding, but decent entertainment. Worth 1 read.
-- very good, has some outstanding features. If it has flaws, the benefits overwhelm them. Worth reading twice or maybe once every few years.
-- AMAZING!!! memorable, captivating, with no glaring flaws. Worth reading over and over (maybe once a year), because you'll get more from each reading.
01. For Love of Mother-Not** by Alan Dean Foster (science fiction)
256 pages (total 256)
This is a re-read -- I recently filled all the gaps in my Pip & Flinx collection so I'm refreshing my memory as I work my way back through. There's not really anything profound about this one, but the colorful characters and fascinating world-building make it definitely worth the read. It feeds my imagination. ;-)
