I had never read an Anne McCaffrey book before. My daughter lent me "Pegasus in Space" as in introduction. I liked the book pretty well. It was pretty light reading. It didn't make me work too hard. It was entertaining and the characters were likable. But, for some reason it reminded me of the X-Men movies. I just couldn't get past that. I gave it 4 stars because it was enjoyable entertainment. It probably really should get 3-1/2.
