    OK, so you're more of an age with Anakin and Padmé then. Where did you go to university?

    @Reece: We haven't been dolling out many cookies these days; OR seems to eat them all.

    I think Darkover is her best work, although some are better than others. I would recommend starting with The Bloody Sun. They're all standalone books and it doesn't really matter where you start but that one introduces you to most of the recurring characters of most significance. It's also a good example of the best Darkover books.

    Good suggestion.
    You might also consider Landfall. It wasn't written first, but it is chronologically the first book as it relates how humans first landed on Darkover.

    I'm 16, so I'm hoping to go to university. Maybe Oxford, St Andrews (Scotland), Edinburgh, Manchester or Trinity (Dublin.)
    What about you then?

    Ah yes. What were you studying?

    I'm interested in going for Computer Science, but mixing it with Biochemistry.

    Germanic languages.

    Strange mixture you're choosing, at first sight. But that's your call of course. :) Success.

    Sounds interesting. I love germanic languages too, but after spending two weeks in a biochemistry lab working at both programming and experiments, my choice was made.
    And in Scotland you can take more than one subject at the beginning.
