Sometimes seen as 3 pulp paperbacks, this tale belongs between just 2 covers. Like "Dune", there are periodic interjections providing scientific, historical, political, and/or philosophical background for the tapestry being woven narratively. The intellectual conversations are wide-ranging; sadly, they remain pertinent today, despite the fact that only some should be universal while others really should have been merely topical. Like Orson Scott Card, Cherryh's protagonists are the most intelligent minds within the given society, yet they face very universal challenges. It's a pleasure to note the many facets with which the author deals, the diverse challenges of which she makes the reader aware and the options she provides for potential resolution. The mix of global and personal, of the macrocosmic and the microscopic, is deftly handled. My only complaint is that the book ends before I am ready for the tale to conclude. That's a good thing, I think.

Although not as sweeping as "Dune", "Cyteen" delves into cloning, personal relationships, intelligence and ultimately is a murder mystery. With little to no ethical discussion of cloning, the book instead focuses on ideas about longevity and attempts to imprint clones with previous personalities. It is a smart and detailed book which leaves you wanting more.

This is a very complicated book. Involved very wordy and technical writing that those not familar with the field of life sciences will find hard to understand. It also contains some objectional material that just isn't suitable for immature audiences. The plot is interesting and contains far reaching implications, it is very informative if you are interested in the other books in C.J. Cherryh's the company wars series as this provides perspectives from the other side. This quote is to me hauntingly prophetic and realistic ''Trade and common interests have proven, in the end, more powerful in human affairs than all the warships ever launched.'' An examination of power on a grand scale, across lifetimes and light years, this has all the complexity of a book like the 'Lord of The Rings' with its own unique values and morals.
