The story was adapted for a film of the same name in 1985. I had previously read the story in Barry Longyear's story collection Manifest Destiny (in 1981), and also in an old copy of IASFM (in 1984), so this Tor Double was half a re-read for me.

About the book:
War forces two enemies to crash on a tiny island which is slowly overrun by waves. They must rely on each other for their survival but no one said they had to like it. The sea keeps rising until the two are forced to leave the island, but not without serious injury to the human, Davidge. The Drac, Jerry, builds a shelter and nurses Davidge until he recovers from his injuries caused in their violent sea crossing. This is just the beginning a a unique friendship. The whole story is complicated because the Drac is pregnant and gives birth. But that is less than the first half of the story. The rest of the story concerns the raising and safety of child Zammy.

My take:
First let me say I absolutely loved the movie adaption of this story. Dennis Quad was hot, hot in this movie and Lou Gossett, Jr. had my heart in his hand by the middle of the movie. After I saw the movie, I wondered how I missed reading the story. After all I was a big, big science fiction fan at the time. The truth is I didn't miss the story, I just didn't find it as wonderful as the movie.
The book is still good, the writing tight, the plot while not totally unique (There was a WWII movie that about a Japanese and an American soldier stranded on an island fighting each other) was good. I enjoyed the friendship that develops between the two main characters as well as how Davidge handles the birth of Zammy. It is amazing how much story can be built into just 95+ pages.
One of my favorite parts of the story is where Jerry apologizes for his blasphemous remarks he made about Mickey Mouse. Yes, you have to read the book or see the movie to find out what I mean.
This story is told in the first person, something I have found I dislike as of late. This could be a result of so few current writers handing it well. This book shows how it should be done.

I highly recommend the book to anyone who likes introspective stories, even those who do not normally read science fiction. I also recommend our readers see the movie because although the movie is like the book, there is more action in the movie, different action, and Quad and Gossett bring life into the wonderful characters Longyear created.
"Enemy Mine," by Barry Longyear was first brought to my attention in about 1980 in Longyear's multiple award winning "Manifest Destiny" saga of mankind's highest adventure on the frontier of the far future. I could not put the book down once I began reading it because of the great and I mean great character development of the interaction between two protagonists, one an hermaphrodite reptilian alien fighter pilot for the exotic home alien planet, Draco, and the other a United States of Earth fighter pilot battling the alien on the planet Fyrine IV, near the Draconian's parent planet. I know that this sounds like a far reach for a Hugo, Nebula, and John. W. Campbell Award winning author, but far from it. Enemy mine was so well written and so beautifully developed that it was made into a movie produced by Wolfgang Petersen starring Dennis Quaid and Louis Gossett, Jr. in 1985. The movie was never heavily advertised and thus only a small fraction of potential viewers were ever aware that it even existed. The story itself was a gem, and as often happens the video version of the book was not as well developed as the original book itself. None-the-less, Louis Gossett, Jr., and Dennis Quaid portrayed the original characters in excellent fashion, and they did the book great justice. I was so very lucky to have procured a CBS Fox Video VHS copy of the movie which I cherish, and which I often watch. To share my adulation for the story Enemy Mine, I highly recommend that you read it; you'll thank me for introducing it to you.
happy light
I saw this movie in my youth and only recently discovered that it's a book. Reading it, I was delighted that it played as a movie in my head. The forced friendship and dependence between different cosmic species who were at war illustrates the breaking down of walls that we humans, who are not so different from each other, could practice with each other here on earth. It also makes me realize that it would take a complete change in our level of individual survival to put this acceptance of each other into the right perspective, which the main characters in this story were forced to conform to. For a story about a crash with an enemy, it's an uplifting and thought-provoking story that's very easy to read and imagine.
I loved this book. I had watched the movie long ago, and I often watch it now. This book adds more character development, and more background. It is a rich story. Different from the movie, the movie was good, the book is even better!
This is quite simply one of the best books I've ever read. I believe it was originally published in a magazine as a novella and then reprinted in book form to make money. It is rather short, but every page is worth five in a typical novel. The story is deceptively simple: a human and an alien crashland on an ocean world and most work together to survive. The story has been done before, but never so well as this. The beginning is solid suspense while the middle is a tear jerker. The final third is less intense and moves to more of a cerebral level. It is a fitting conclusion, though not as intense as the first two parts. All in all, Enemy Mine deserves its many accolades. By the way, read the book before you see the movie--the acting is good but they changed too many things for a fan to be satisfied.
I recommend seeing the movie first (the reverse of most book/movie offerings) because the visual creations from the movie will greatly add to your enjoyment of the book. It is a timeless story. It is a beautiful story of friendship and integrity.
not yours
The novella is even better than the fine adaptation. The author's detailed and rich imagining of an alien culture is insightful and compelling. The obviously b-movie level production values of the film adaptation are overcome by the essence of the novella which shines through the screenplay.
