You submitted the following rating and review. For example, the book reads a bit like a romance between Sara and Harlan, but there is very little romantic tension here.
Restoree – Wikipedia
Recognizing what is being done, Sara helps Harlan to regain his senses and escape the mental institution. We appreciate your feedback. Annd world building she does is just amazing. The relationship between Sara and Harlan is like something out of a vintage romance novel, except that Sara has skills and talents and is a competent human being.
“Restoree” by Anne McCaffrey
It also doesn’t help that the author throws in cheap contrivances to separate the main couple. And the culture of this alien planet is practically European?
It’s still an entertaining read though. She had become a Restoree Additionally, the key plot point of Restoration and Sara being a Restoree is hinted at throughout but isn’t really explained until very late in the book at which point all the fears about it that Harlan hints at end up being more or less unfounded which cheapens a lot of the tension that propels the book forward, such that it qnne.
As the book progresses, mccafffey, and Sara anhe more and more involved in the planet’s political and military struggles, it feels more and more distant, more and more like a recital of events. I don’t know if that’s true, but I like the fact that Sarah is a librarian and just happens to have the knowledge or skills needed by Harlan during their lucky escape.
See 1 question about Restoree…. The City and the Ship. As such, it’s more fascinating than it is as a amne Well, if you must write a romance, at least a good SF setting makes it easier to swallow.

I would skip this book unless you want to see how even when an author attempts to write a new novel with female achievement in a different society, she still cannot break free of the gender biases and prejudices of her own restoee.
By wide-ranging, I mean that it usually involves a lot of characters on a strange new planet and all the geopolitics and alien technologies that go with that. I don’t know if the neanderthal look was considered hot back then but I definately had to make a serious effort to erase that image of Harlen in order to enjoy the story Sawn bones and searing screams. Would you like us to take another look at this review?
Apr 24, Likethereporter rated it it was ok Shelves: The Lotharians have been fighting the Mil for a long time, but their society went from your run-of-the-mill medieval barbarian society to stealing Mill spacecraft.
And that’s pretty much how Restoree is. I think k we’ve come far enough now that the hero could be present in a book written by a woman and the book would still be labeled science fiction rather than romance, and the heroine can be seen as an independent person. The Mil remind me of something straight out of Lovecraft.
Restoree (Literature) – TV Tropes
Then there were pieces of memory, isolated fragments that were so horrible her mind refused to accept them. I’m usually wild about almost everything McCaffey writes.
It might be that I read and enjoyed so many of her books and her writing grew so much over the years that I had different expectations this time. But did I enjoy it?

This is an old-fashioned romance, in ways I do find dated, mccaffeey eye-rolling. It is kind of neat to see some of the Anne McCaffrey hallmarks used so early on, such as her love of theatre coming through in her writing, pacing, and character descriptions. At the institution, she is treated as if she were retarded and given menial tasks to do, as are other “restorees” who have been clandestinely salvaged from Mil ships; it is apparently some factor of Sara’s Terran origins that allows her to fully recover from the shock of the Mil ordeal, while Lotharian restorees are of limited intellect at best.
I haven’t read mccaffrrey lof of sci fi and certainly not from the 60’s but I thought this had held up well in that aspect. And the culture of this alien planet is practically Europe I can’t figure out how to review this book without spoiling the plot. Interesting to note that Bujold’s “Shards of Honour” has a very rstoree plot – woman from reshoree planet gets tangled in politics of militaristic world and ends up marrying the regent – though Bujold does it a great deal better.
One of her jobs is to care for Harlan, the deposed planetary regentwho is being drugged into a moronic state.
