Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mary-Beth | 1/9/2014

    " In this story it's a ship/station and a male shellperson who drives the plot. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Zgardenldy | 1/7/2014

    " I could not connect with this book -- the science fiction part was so apart from my experience I could not visualize anything going on in the book. I was disappointed. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nikki | 12/23/2013

    " First read this such a long time ago - either in college or before and i still read it often. Its action packed and full of humour. For me, it doesn't feel like its dragging like other McCaffrey books do (though i will admit i have not READ alot of her books) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeremy | 12/16/2013

    " I can't say why I liked this book, I don't really care for her other work. The notion that people with massive deformities who wouldn't survive birth could be integrated with computers to feel & see maybe affects me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Viking | 12/15/2013

    " Good fun. Over too soon. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Vohumanu | 12/11/2013

    " A bad matching of authors. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Theresa | 7/3/2013

    " Simon thought he was going to have the best carrier in the universe until the pirates came and he learned to fight with all his intellegence and all his connections to save the people he was intrusted to care for. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Savannah | 2/3/2013

    " Read skimmed to evaluate for weeding. It's dated and uninteresting, the way that scifi gets when it slips behind the times. Verdict: adios. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ralph McEwen | 12/20/2012

    " A little dated but an interesting concept non the less. I enjoyed the strong female lead and the interplay between her and the males. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bryan457 | 11/8/2012

    " A great read. Much more brutal and gritty than previous Brainship books. Essentially it as about a space station that is taken over by brutal pirates. The people fight back in clever guerrilla warfare to take back the station. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather | 3/4/2012

    " A much more engrossing and well-wroght story than I expected given the author and title! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sharon | 2/14/2012

    " This is one of my favorites in the Brainship series. In general, these books are more technical than many of her others. This one involves the "Brain" to a space station holding off pirates, so there are a lot of battle scenes and guerilla tactics. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jh6p | 12/21/2011

    " Another in the shell people series. This involves brutal invaders who systematically rape an entire city. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bridget | 11/22/2011

    " This series is totally my current guilty pleasure. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 ♆ BookAddict ~ La Crimson Femme | 10/27/2011

    " Simon continues the good story line of the brain ships. An entire city run by a one brain, fascinating. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Barry | 3/17/2011

    " Even though this book was well written, it does get a bit too brutal. There is no doubt that there is truth in that such brutality would probably happen in the situation depicted in the story, but it is a work of fiction and should have been downplayed instead of emphasized. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ralph | 3/1/2011
