    1. Way back in the 70's I tried to read some fantasy book by CJC and gave up, considering it peurile. I was 15 and my god was J.G. Ballard. Much later, after the English New Wave (sadly) waned in influence and SF retreated into its clique, I discovered the Chanur/Hani books and was filled with a new delight over space opera. And after that - a long time after - I found this 1976 novel and read it during an evening of insomnia. It's good. Not great, but certainly good. The seeds of her wonderful ali [...]

    2. Ya me explayaré cuando pille un teclado. Resumo: 5 estrellas TENIENDO EN CUENTA QUE ES DEL 76.O sea, que me ha gustado mucho sabiendo que es CF clásica con todos sus defectos (personajes flojitos, inocencia en los giros argumentales y todo eso) y virtudes ( mundos, viajes, culturas extrañas, perjuicios extrapola les, amores de risa)Admito que Cherry era/es uno de mis iconos en CF. Y que no soy imparcial. Pero la mantengo las 5 estrellitas, hale!!

    3. A re-read of a book first read years ago and which I must have enjoyed as I kept it; unfortunately, I'm not rating it a keeper this time around. I found the pace very slow and the main character interaction unconvincing.Kurt Morgan is a human who crashlands on a planet where a humanoid race called the nemet live. He is from one side in a long war with another human civilisation, both in the process of destroying themselves. At first, the nemet are hostile to him, and some of them remain so, beca [...]

    4. I would like this book a lot if it didn't make one of the most unforgiveable mistakes of science fiction, humanoid aliens.Kurt Morgan, the main character, is stranded in the middle of their complex (but thoroughly human-like) culture. The only other true humans on the planet are some earlier castaways from centuries earlier who have turned barbaric in the meantime, and Djan, a more recent arrival who has made herself ruler of the city at which Kurt arrives. In general the book fits the descripti [...]

    5. This book has all the hall marks of a Cherryh novel, great writing, great atmosphere. But it piles improbability on improbability until the storm in a tea cup becomes a fully fledged civil war, amongst people with very long and difficult to pronounce names.It started of well, but then all or a sudden this elite family is willing to let him live off them for the rest of his life. No where do I see any inclination in Kurt Morgan to make himself useful to his hosts. And on top of that he gets marri [...]

    6. This is, according to the introduction, one of Cherryh’s very first books, and it shows (though not entirely in a bad way: the other book that Cherryh mentions as among her first is “Gate of Ivrel”, which is more successful in good part because it is less ambitious). Part of the problem is that the scenario of a lone human in an alien society is one that she would return to often, and with better results than here. The nemet, with their honor-based culture that seems like ancient Rome with [...]

    7. I have adopted/rescued several of this author's books, but so far haven't read any. So, I picked this one up last night. It's from 1976, a classic era in sci-fi(1970's), and is telling the tale of a marooned human space-warrior on a planet a lot like earth, with aliens who seem to be a lot like humans. But there are humans around too, including formal enemies(also marooned) of our protagonist. The emphasis so far seems to be on psychology: the state of mind of the protagonist(despairing mostly) [...]

    8. I first read this book when it came out in the '70s and it hasn't lost a thing in the intervening decades. More a tale of people with some science fiction elements thrown in, it was an early inspiration for my own writing.

    9. Reread. One of her earlier works, economically written, a bit stiff (particularly in the dialogue). The alien culture is basically classical Japanese.

    10. C. J. Cherryh's "thing" is constructing well-rounded alien cultures that feel real. This is a form of world building (one of the key elements of a good sci-fi novel), except that, by focusing on culture instead of, say, an alien environment or future technology, Cherryh's novels also, inevitably, focus on character. And having well-rounded characters is a key element that many sci-fi novels lack. Even some of my favorite sci-fi writers from childhood, like Isaac Asimov and Arthur C. Clarke, wrot [...]

    11. I read this book because I've been meaning to read C.J. Cherryh for some time, and also because I was doing a challenge to read 15 space opera books by the end of the year. However, this book is not space opera. It's a planetary romance. That being said, it's a really good planetary romance, centered on a fascinating alien culture with about 17th century technology that reminded me very much of an Indus Valley sort of culture, with lots of formalities and strange social customs and caste systems [...]

    12. This was C.J.Cherryh's first novel written, although the publisher decided to release her second novel written to the market first. It is considered part of her Alliance/Union universe, but I think that was a later positioning as it does not really relate in an important way to the main body of her work.This was a quick read, with fairly simple plot and characters, reminiscent to some extent of Andre Norton. The main character is the sole survivor of a space battle, who crashes onto a planet wit [...]

    13. This was the very first Cherryh book that I read. I had wanted to read Downbelow Station for a while but I couldn't get my hands on it. This was the only book available at my local library.I started to read the book with some trepidation as I had not read much sci-fi at this point being a major fantasy freak. Very quickly I was drawn into the story as Cherryh weaves a rich and colourful world and characters. Having read many of her books since she excels at writing stories which have various rac [...]

    14. I had occasionally picked up Cherryh's books for years, finding them often deeply discounted in used bookstores, but had been reluctant to read them for two reasons. First, so many were set within broader frameworks and I hadn't all the titles of such series. Second, if given a choice, I generally prefer relevant, near-future science fictions, stuff that is relevant to current trends and problems. When finally getting around to reading her, however, I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of h [...]

    15. I started trying to read this and found myself thinking that I really couldn't get into it. Possibly because the author's description on her web site is a little too descriptive, and possibly because well, this book is over 30 years old and reads like it. And also possibly because the chunks of the timeline in this universe that contain Elene Quen and Ariane Emory are more interesting to me than the ones that don't.

    16. One of my favourite sci fi books. It's a long time since I last read it and in my memory I admired it for the detailed alien culture the author had created. I saw it as a story of adventure and of a lone human survivor trying to fit in with a family of the nemet where he was loved but not understood. Rereading it, I see it's also a story about honourable people trying to reconcile new facts with the age old religion that governs so much of their lives.

    17. This isn't my cup of tea, but I like it anyway. I completely lost myself in this nice story. I was desperate for a story and had nothing on hand. I dug through a box of old books and found an old book club edition from my middle school years. This is fine story telling.

    18. This novel has a strong plot, strong POV character and an alien society with a deep background. Plot has human adapting to alien culture and participating in a grand political conflict. Great description of galley warfare; based on ancient Greece? Highly Recommended.

    19. A story of two humans from opposing camps marooned on an alien world. C.J. Cherryh impresses with the world-building. (You can see how some of the ideas in this book flowed into her later works.) The impact of the alien culture on the protaganist and how he tries to cope rings true.

    20. My first Cherryh and it was really quite good considering it was only her second book. I shall definitely read more of hers.

    21. DNFLost interest somewhere down the middle. For some reason I couldn't care less what happened to the characters. I've tried to go back after an extended break, butNo, I'd rather not.
