It’s hard to believe this book was written so long ago, it has certainly stood the test of time and is as enjoyable now as it has ever been. McCaffrey has introduced the idea of cyborg technology in a way that makes you question the morality of combining man and machine and to think about issues such as euthanasia. She never loses sight of the humanity of this young ‘hybrid’ however, and Helva’s development and growth as a person makes for moving reading. Granted this isn’t a heavyweight of literature, don’t expect lengthy prose or hard science, and occasionally the book lapses into more of a romance than a sci-fi story, but that aside, this is still a really good read. Keep an open mind and give it a chance, you won’t be disappointed.
The book is a cracking good read which will have readers eagerly looking for and buying, the remaining set of books.
There are more books on "brain ships" written by the author(this being the first). I may read another one just out of curioustiy to see what happens as I do think the idea is good with great potential for sci-fi excellent stories.
