Reviews of Ship Who Searched, the (1992)
Review by fastfinge (2005-10-27)
I've noticed a strong pattern in all of the Anne McCaffrey books I've tried to read. If she wrote the book herself, I never like it. If, however, the book has a co-author, I usually find it at least good. This book, co-authord by an author who's solo works I've already liked and read, is excelent. I've read all of the other books in the ship series, and this is by far the best of the bunch. If you don't plan on reading the entire series, at least read this book. It stands just fine by itself; don't worry that it's book 3. The rest of the series isn't bad either, but I could take it or leave it.

Mercedes Lackey and Anne McCaffrey really complement each other well on this one. A bit of space opera, a bit of love story, all built around the series premise: "what if you could transfer the brain of a baby born with a defective body into a machine, and let the machine become the body?"
