Overview

The planet was called Pyrrus...a strange place where all the beasts, plants and natural elements were designed for one specific purpose: to destroy man.

The settlers there were supermen, twice as strong as ordinary men and with milli-second reflexes. They had to be. For their business was murder.

It was up to Jason dinAlt, interplanetary gambler, to discover why Pyrrus had become so hostile during man's brief habitation...

I am now into my 70's and thought I would always be reading books made of paper. Surprise! Now I'm reading by NOOK as well - and I like it. For one thing I can browse through a giant library of e-books and rediscover books I read ages ago. Deathworld by Harry Harrison is one of them. I first read it 50 years ago and liked it just as well today. I recommend it highly to all sci fi fans.

Nice easy sci-fi read, but a little long. In some places it's slow, and it seems to drag sometimes, but it has a lot of action. Not the best sci-fi I've ever read, but pretty good. There is a sequel, Deathworld 2 or The Ethical Engineer. The plot is fairly believable, as are the characters. The 'psi' (psychic) abilities of some of the characters add a nice touch. The element of nature against man os intresting, although somewhat undeveloped.
