Overview

Downbelow Station (Company Wars Series) by C. J. Cherryh

A legend among sci-fi readers, C.J. Cherryh's Union-Alliance novels, while separate and complete in themselves, are part of a much larger tapestry-a future history spanning 5,000 years of human civilization.

Downbelow Station is the book that won Cherryh a Hugo Award for Best Novel in 1982. A blockbuster space opera of the rebellion between Earth and its far-flung colonies, it is a classic science fiction masterwork.

This has to be one of my favorite science fiction books of all time, ranked among Frank Herbert's Dune and Isaac Asimov's Foundation. There's a lot of politics, but there's also a fair amount of action. What's most surprising is that this living, breathing universe, which C. J. Cherryh has fashioned for this books and many of her others, is totally belivable and understandable. You'll be hard put to find a character in Downbelow Station you can't empathize with, or at least understand how he or she thinks, and be thrilled to read what they do next. I was reading during class when the plot was building up to a crescendo because I couldn't put it down. I haven't read Cyteen yet, which is a followup, and quite frankly its density is a little bit daunting, but after reading Downbelow Station I can't wait to sit down and give it a try.
