Overview

Pyrrus was a planet where all life forms--plant and animal alike--had evolved into killers. Five minutes in a meadow on Pyrrus was like a century of global war on most worlds. The people of Pyrrus all lived in one barricaded city, huddled against the killer planet's endless terrors.

It was only a matter of time until the planet overcame its people's defenses.

Jason din Alt came to Pyrrus with a reputation as a gambler. Saving himself and the people of Pyrrus would require the biggest gamble of his life.

This book contains the original text as first printed in Astounding Science Fiction digest magazine. It includes the original illustrations from the magazine.

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.
