To tell true, i read the book as soon as it came into the library. I love her work and this book was no exception. Nimisha is such a strong person, but I like her daughter as well. Her dedication was a nice trait, and Caleb was also interesting. I don't always just look at the main characters. They all are people, and some of my favorites aren't the big ones, but the small ones. I would recommend this book to anyone and my McCaffrey books are the ones all my friends always want to borrow.

Very interesting.  The plot of this sci-fi novel is a bit like Farscape, but with a woman as the lost pilot.  I've never disliked anAnne McCaffrey novel, and this one is no exception.  I love the maincharacter of Nimisha; she's so strong minded, willful, and so very determined to succeed with her new space yacht prototype.  The fact that it went wrong was only a matter of time.  Nimisha's domineeringand eccentric mother is probably the star of the book.  I thought she was great!  Now how about a sequel?

_Nimisha's Ship_ is a new McCaffrey book set in the same world as _The Coelura_. Although I thought it was all right, _The Coelura_ didn't fascinate me and make me want to read it over and over again, as most of her other books do. So I wasn't sure whether this book would be all that good. However, Anne McCaffrey has done it again, and _Nimisha's Ship_ is as good as it promised to be when I first picked it up in the bookstore. Luckily, because she's so popular, my library gets her books as soon as they come out, and I didn't have to wait for the paperback version. The story follows a woman (Nimisha) from her birth to her eventual success in a job not generally considered appropriate for someone of her standing. the characterization is, as always in her books, wonderful, and they seem to come alive on the page. I would reccomend this book to anyone who has enjoyed previous works by, in my opinion, one of the best writers in the field, Anne McCaffrey.
