I can't blame you. I did make it all the way through, but once was definitely enough.

All that toxic gender roles stuff is the reason I don't read the books anymore. As much as I absolutely loved them when I was younger, the way women (and lower ranked men) are treated just makes me too angry.

I have just reread "Moreta" and "Nerilka's Story". They play at the same time, but are told from different perspectives. "Moreta" is all right, but Nerilka, mwa.
I used to love all her stories, but I think I have grown more critical. I still like the Pern stories, but Anne McCaffrey is not my favourite author anymore.
And I don't like the books written by Todd. I quit the series after a few of his.

Yes, time travel seems to be his go-to solution to everything.  You made me stop and think, I don't know when I last re-read any of her books.  I was thinking of her non-SF/F book "The Year of the Lucy" a few weeks ago, though.

I thought they were badly written (and I am not even a native speaker) and container too many inconsistenties.
I am now wondering if I know "The year of the Lucy". It does ring a Bell, but maybe just because I saw it listed in other books. I do own "The Kilternan Legacy", also non-SF/F, though I wouldn't call it contemporary anymore  :D
