To the memory of the Colonel, my father. George herbert mccaffrey. citizen, soldier, patriot, for whom the ship first sang. She was born a thing and as such would be condemned if she failed to pass the encephalograph test required of all newborn babies. There was always the possibility that though the limbs were twisted, the mind was not, that though the ears would hear only dimly, the eyes see vaguely, the mind behind them was receptive and alert.

Well. I.enjoy the brainship universe. The plot is interesting enough. And quite frankly, Anne McCaffrey did not write anything I haven't liked.
On the other hand, Mercedes Lackey. I just don't care for her anymore. I used to love her writing. What is with the italics. Can you not write so that we get the point without italics? Or at least not on every page. And that is rhetoric, because she either can't, or more likely, just won't.
So, a decent enough book pulled down by worn out tricks by one of the authors.

This was one of the first science fiction books I ever read when I was young. At the time, I thought it was one of the best books of all time, and I read it probably dozens of times! Now, I'm older and I recognize that it's not the best book in the world, but it's definitely worth a look.

Pros:
Characters are vivid and feel realistic. Their interactions are really what drive the book, and that's a great thing.
Has some great emotional moments, which can bring the reader near to tears.
Has great backstory backed by a really cool idea(The brainships).

Cons:
It's a bit short. A significant part of the book is filled with the introduction, and after that you've only got a few hundred pages to convey a full-bodied romance. It pulls it off, but I really feel it could have been longer.
The book is so emotion and character driven that there isn't much of any mystery in the book. Any problems are solved in a way that feels great emotionally, and are well timed, but don't have that much to do with actual problem solving.
A few Chekhov's guns aren't used. Alex's love of strategy, for example; that was primed and ready to fire, but never had an opportunity to be used. Of course, it's mostly a romance, but still, a little military tactics could have been nice.

Overall, it's a great book, and I really support reading it, but don't expect anything but what it is; a happy, fuzzy, sci-fi romance.

This was one of my favorite books when I was a teen. I give one away every so often. Yes a hard copy, because the e-versions are abridged badly and much of the development of the main character is removed.

I am a fan of the Dragonriders of PERN books and had never heard of the brain ship stories. A friend posted she was reading The Ship Who Sang and I figured I'd give it a shot. I am officially addicted! Love these books. Plan on buying them all. Marvelous reads.

One of my favorite books in this series, love the characters and story, have read this story many times and will read it again, anything I want a smile.

Have liked the original for years. Dislike this short version a bit.

I have always been a fan of Anne McCaffrey and applaud her for leadership and willingness to conspire with other writers and this is another fine example. The idea harkens back to "iron lung" days with a fantasy result of being free to live a whole new life even when faced with such a harsh reality. Thank you.
This was an interesting society in the far future, with medical technology to transform and educate children otherwise condemned to life long institutionalism, into useful productive citizens, abet with limitations but also with opportunities for a full and rich life.
