Book 1 of 13 in the Pip & Flinx Series.

Book 1 of 13 in the Pip & Flinx Series. This is the first Alan Dean Foster book I have read other than the Icerigger series and it really didn't grab me. I didn't engage with any of the characters and just lost interest in the story.

From bestselling author Alan Dean Foster, an exciting early Pip and Flinx novel that shows the origins of a certain boy . For Love of Mother-Not is the first book in the Pip and Flinx series, although actually the fourth published.

From bestselling author Alan Dean Foster, an exciting early Pip and Flinx novel that shows the origins of a certain boy with special powers-and the mini-dragon that becomes his devoted sidekick. Flinx was just a freckle-faced, redheaded kid with green eyes and a strangely compelling stare when Mather Mastiff first saw him an the auctioneer's block. As the first novel chronologically it introduces us to Philip Lynx (Flinx) as a young Here’s one that I thought I’d read thirty-odd years ago. But having picked it up again, I can’t remember anything about it.

file:///Foster/Foster,r-Not. Drallar was the largest city on the world of Moth, its only true metropolis, and it was not a particularly wealthy one. By keeping taxes low, it had attracted a good number of offworld businesses and trading concerns to a well-situated b at mostly inhospitable planet. It compensated by largely doing away with such annoying commercial agravations as tarifis and regulations.

Cradling the exhausted Pip in his hands, Flinx rose and made his way through the displays to the section of the shop that served as their home. Mother Mastiff’s eyes followed him. What was to become of the boy? Somehow he had come to the attention of powerful, dangerous people. At least there was a good chance they wouldn’t be bothered for a while. Not if he had left them kind of dead. Born in New York City in 1946, Alan Dean Foster was raised in Los Angeles, California. After receiving a bachelor’s degree in political science and a Master of Fine Arts in motion pictures from UCLA in 1968-69, he worked for two years as a public relations copywriter in a small Studio City, California, firm.

This book covers Flinx's childhood and how he was adopted by Mother Mastiff. The boy seems to have a few unusual abilities and a very mysterious background. As he reaches his teenage years, he acquires a mini dragon from a alien planet who he names Pip. This is fortuitous as Pip enhances Flinx's empathy and protects him when the chips are down. His 16th year is a danger filled adventure.

Now with all of this, chronologically For Love Of Mother Not is the first book and the Tar-aiym Kang (supposed to be book one) is truly Book Two as it picks up with Flinx being 17 years old and more in control of his self. I am very glad I bought the first two books together as I particularly prefer to read my series in order. This looks to be a Sci-fi series that would appeal to anyone who had a fondness for the Harry Potter books, both adult and child.

One of my childhood favorite novels. Foster is one of the best sci-fi writers out there. I still love his work. I've read all the Pip and Flinx books. I highly recommend them. Very three dimensional characters, great plots and lots of action. I'm surprised these have not been turned into movies.
Please note: In my objective opinion this book does have content that is not appropriate for children under 18. Such adult themes as sex, alcohol abuse and violence.

I liked this old fashioned adventure story. Flinx is a very likeable, decent young man. His pet Pip, is a minidrag whom he loves dearly. The pet feels the same for him, as pets do, but this one is immensely powerful and deadly. They hold off baddies who definitely mean Flinx harm but he never gets the details, there's never time. His adoptive mother bought the child from the delightful gov't who thinks selling people only helps them when they can't help themselves. Mother Not gives him a wonderful childhood filled with love, guidance and lots of freedom in a poor, marketplace on a backwater planet. As he comes of age, everything changes and the adventure begins.

In the late 80s I moved away from science fiction and dived into horror. Now in my 50s I find myself reading more and more science fiction again. When I saw this offered up for free I jumped at rereading a book and author I loved so much in my youth. I found that the book has held up very well with the passage of time, perhaps it was edited but either way it certainly is a great book. What's more I find that Mr. Foster has expanded the Pip and Flinx series in my absence. I have added the the next book (story wise) to my wish list. If you've never read Foster this is a good one to start with and if you have already read some of his books why are you reading this? Go get another one from one of the genre masters.

I had high hopes for the author as he is a local to where I live, and that is the reason I purchased this book. However, the author violates most good writing principles that I've been taught in writing school. The story jumps around and is difficult to follow. There is a lot of description with little dialog; dialog is much more interesting, although more difficult to write. I am sorry to say that I would not buy this book again, nor any book from this author.

I've read this book many times. This is one of my favorite authors and I have all of his Flinx novels on my kindle and in book form. I also have many of his other titles but these are some of my favorites. I enjoy Mother Mastiff, she reminds me a bit of my own mother. Flinx is endearing and his view of the world and the hope he carries for his future keeps me rooting for him and wanting more. Excellent book.

Can a book just be, "a good book?"

I first read this book years ago. Actually it was decades ago at this point. I believe it was the first novel I ever read. I was attracted to the cover art showing a boy riding something akin to an ostrich on steroids, with a winged snake on his arm. I was in the seventh grade at the time, and I have loved Flinx and Pip ever since.

Given this, I'm not sure I can really give an objective review of the book. There is too much love and memory for me in the story.
This book was a fine start, or continuation depending on if you read the books by publication date or chronologically, to the series. It started slow and at first I thought I was glad that I hadn't read this one first because I might not have read the rest of the series, but by the end of the book, that problem was gone. The only problem I had with this book had nothing to do with the story itself. The book had a few typos and what seems like an unusually large amount of extra and misused commas for no reason in many sentences on most pages. My biggest pet peeve with this book is, however, that it has no chapter demarcation. It would be so much nicer if this series had it, but as of yet, none of the books have had it. Thankfully, now the rest of the books in the series don't differ so that the chronological and publication orders are the same. I can't wait to read Flinx in Flux.
