4.6 out of 5 stars

on 8 November 2017
Not anywhere near as good as "The Ship who Sang" but not an Anne McCaffrey book as it would on the surface of it appear to be as joint author. Not a bad story however - just not what I was expecting.

Hypatia is a little girl left very much to her own devices while her parents search ancient sites on alien worlds. She falls victim to an alien disease which robs her of her mobility. The story tells of how she becomes the "Brain" of a space ship, and her adventures while searching for the origin of the virus that paralyzed her.
The story is in the tradition of the original series by Ann McCaffery and is a worthy successor.

As usual Anne McCaffrey builds interesting characters that it is easy to become involved with and then spins a story that you wish to be a part of.

An old book (bought to replace a worn out copy) an excellent story one of a series written by the late Anne McCaffrey, if you have not read any of this series I urge you to try them. My favourite is The Ship that Sang' Guaranteed to bring tears to the eyes of most readers

I have always enjoyed this series from the minute Helva was launched. The unique concept and fun characters have ensured that this remains a timeless series.
Tia and Alex's story makes you laugh and cry. From Tia's precocious 7 year old self through her journey to womanhood via a shell. It is a fascinating and engaging story. I only wish there were more of them.

I always did like the brain ship novels and, to me, this is the best of the series.
