I think this has to be one of my favorite books.I first read it about ten years ago, and have read it at least once a year since then.The first chapter snares the attention and reels you in.I was reading another novel, and an excerpt from this book was in the back.I read it, and had to have it.I devoured it as soon as I got my hands on it, finishing it in an afternoon.And I wasn't disappointed.
One thing I love about Anne McCaffrey is the way she wrote female characters.So often, in sci-fi and fantasy, I find myself hating female characters, especially leads.Because the lead should never be the weakest part of the story, and I feel they frequently are, in those genres.But Anne McCaffrey didn't have that problem.Tia, despite being a ship, is so human, so real.There is never a point in the book where I dislike her, or Alex.
The plotline isn't a space opera.There is no war.The conflict is on a smaller scale, and I like that.I love me some space opera, but sometimes I want a story about a courier ship dealing with plague and human interests.
