Crystal SingerHer name was Killashandra Ree And after ten grueling years of musical training she was still without prospect. I loved this book when I was about 14 Alas it has not stood the test of timeThe story opens with Killashandra Ree incongruously named after a small town in county Cavan notable mainly for its dairy co operative being told that she'll never make an opera singer and storming off in a huff She falls in with one Carrik who chats her up in a by modern standards somewhat creepy manner and takes her off on holiday with him where they have a lot of sex Subseuently partly because Carrik's lifestyle is one to which she would like to become accustomed and partly because her erstwhile mentor tells her not to she heads off to Ballybran to become like Carrik a crystal singer miners of Ballybran's special crystals use sonic cutters which have to be accurately tuned apparently by means of the human voiceview spoilerSo our heroine arrives on Ballybran along with an assortment of other characters to wait for the planet's weird spore thing to infect her and make her a crystal singer Meanwhile they and the reader all learn about various aspects of Ballybran crystal weather and transport and Killashandra and a bloke named Rimbol have a lot of sexThen it turns out that Killashandra is brilliantly well suited to the planet as she gets through the infection bit with practically no side effects unlike everyone else in her group all of whom get very sick So while they're recuperating she gets a head start on them all and learns stuff and figures out where to find some black crystal the most valuable type and cuts it and meets the Guildmaster and has a lot of sex with himAnd then the black crystal she's cut is sold and has to be installed so she goes off to do that and spends a lot of time on a spaceship with lousy food and boring crewmembers and doesn't have sex with anyone This bit seems kind of pointless hide spoiler

My wife is an avid fan of McCaffrey's Dragonriders of Pern series so wanted me to read this one to her because of the author she enjoys being read to aloud as well as reading by herself; but neither of us liked this particular book nor wanted to pursue the rest of the series after finishing it Killashandra is far too self centered to be a very appealing or involving character And while the use of a symbiotic relationship with psi features between a human and an alien life form is characteristic of McCaffrey's fiction the bond between the crystal singers and their crystals unlike the one between Pernese dragonriders and their dragons is ultimately destructive of the former's sanity which gives the book a depressing feel
