This is my review of the book “Plague Ship by Andre Norton” which I listened to a while ago. As mentioned a couple of posts ago I am playing catch up with these reviews. I listened to this story as a librivox recording whilst travelling and then preparing our holiday cottage The Spinney in South West Scotland www.thespinneycottage for guests to stay the week.
It was an enjoyable story to listen to and made the time pass by quickly as I traveled and then cleaned. It is a science fiction story continuing the tale of the ship the Solar Queen, which is a space trader. They land on the planet of Sargol, to trade, but find that their rivals the ruthless Inter Solar company is there already.
The Solar Queen manages to beat their rivals and does the deal with the natives. On leaving the planet they quickly find that they have been stricken down with a plaque, that will threaten to destroy them. Somehow the crew have to remove the plaque, and get the ship cleared so that they can trade again. This involves some pretty major risks, as once named as a plaque ship they are open season to all to try and eradicate the plaque from the skies.
A fun story that made the time pass by quickly as I was doing jobs. This was book 35 week 28 fiction 32 (audio book 9) non fiction 3.
