Publisher's Summary

Day by day, the sentient planet is learning to recognize and understand the meaning of outside stimuli, to communicate its own needs and desires...even to use human speech. The Petaybeans have their hands full trying to protect their beloved planet from the sudden influx of tourists. Then some of Petaybee's staunchest champions are kidnapped.

missing sections of stories

the performance was great, but you can tell good size portions of the stories were deliberately left out. I can understand some parts being removed due to their sexual nature, but the rest just ruin the story.

Great book

I am a huge McCaffrey fan and I love Marina Sirtis. At first though, it was difficult to listen to the narration. Once I was used to her accent, it was wonderful. A great story and the performance of the narration really brought it to life.
