A book that is basically "D&D for One"? I still can't tell if this is incredibly super-awesome or just kinda sad.

Dragonharper is a crossroads adventure, a spin on the Choose-Your-Own-Adventure books, set in the world of Pern with the protagonist/player character being a younger Robinton.

This book takes place about halfway through "The Masterharper of Pern", but was written 11 years prior to that book. Therefore, there are a number of inconsistencies (especially Robinton's relationship with his father and with F'lon).

While the story itself is engaging, this book suffers from a lack of proofreading. There were quite a few typos...more
Although it is said to be science-fiction, I would deem it fantasy, because of the telepathic and teleporting stuff. The wonderful surprise in this book was that the plot and almost entire storyline revolved around ordinary human problems and relationships. I was really surprised by how much it didn't seem like fantasy, even though there are rather otherworldly solutions throughout the story. It has a little bit of romance in it, just enough to spice it up. Very entertaining, and well-paced.
a hard story to follow
