I came across a book by a favorite author, Anne McCaffrey, that I hadn’t read or even heard of, Nimisha’s Ship. So I found a copy on BookSwap and just finished reading it. I’ve read everything she’s written, and this is easily her weakest novel.
Nimisha is a bright girl from a highly placed family, and she grows up to be the owner of an off-planet shipyard and designer of advanced spacecraft. Taking one of these craft for a shakedown cruise, she encounters a wormhole and is spit out in an unknown area of space. There she finds an M-type (habitable by humans) planet and, with some other stranded humans from a previous wormhole capture, begins a colony. It reads like McCaffrey, but the whole affair is rather boring.
I’m not sure what I’ll read next, but it will be a mystery.
Barbara read John Sandford’s Dark of the Moon which she liked a lot, and has started A Wanted Man by Lee Child, a Reacher novel. She’s been reading more than I have, as well as gardening, working out and keeping really busy.
How about you? What are you reading?
