Survey Ship by Marion Zimmer Bradley

First sentence:

"How do you make a spaceman?"


"Six of Earth's finest young people, perfect in mind and body, have been trained from the cradle for one task--to brave the infinite dangers of space, to find new homes for Man. But once alone in the pitiless universe, they are bertrayed by their ship and plagued by space hazards; their voyage becomes a grim test of sruvival. To survive they must tame their wild talents. To survive, they must turn their training into skill, with no margin for error. To survive, they must conquer their fears, longings and nightmares. They must become a team. They must learn how to love.

Or they die."

My thoughts:

It was a good book, though short. I felt that I just started to get to know the characters and saw how they worked together, and then the book was over before their adventure really began.
