I cannot remember the first time I read this book and this series, but I ENVY Helva! I mean, SERIOUSLY, who would not want to be a BrainShip with a titanium hull?

Oh yes, I recognized the downsides. It "objectivizes people with disabilities," or some such. It is "Gnosticism 101," completely separating body and… Spirit? Soul?

Anne McCaffery is a novelist, not a theologian. She was one of the first novelists that I read that had a WOMAN with a disability as a first rate Hero. I enjoyed it the first time I've read it, and every time since. When I have graduated, I may make time to read it again.
