C.J. Cherryh's "Downbelow Station"

At our May 14th, 2013 Book Discussion meeting, 9 of our club members and/or associates discussed author C.J. Cherryh's 1981 Hugo-winning novel, "Downbelow Station".

If you're a Star Base Andromeda member who has read this novel but were not able to attend our discussion, and you would like to offer up your opinion, please share your thoughts here with the rest of SBA and anyone else who drops in. As part of your comments, please give "
Downbelow Station" a score, from 1 to 10 (10 best) and identify yourself by name in your comments. Although we currently only add rating scores to our website for local members and associates who participated in the original discussion or were unable to attend the discussion due to scheduling issues, we would be curious to see how your opinion compares to ours!

If you're one of those visitors who just stumbled across us, you're welcome to share your opinion here, too.

Thank you for participating! What did you think of "
Downbelow Station"?

And join us on June 11th for our next discussion: Peter S. Beagle's "The Last Unicorn".

SBA member and frequent book discussion participant Ken G. was not able to make the official discussion of "Downbelow Station", but shared this review after the fact:

"I finished Downbelow Station over the Memorial Day weekend, and thoroughly enjoyed it. I give it an 8.5. The negotiations between the various parties were skillfully thought through, and the physical actions on the station, downbelow, and on the ships were convincing enough to me that I felt them to be accurately drawn. And the ending was satisfying and, in its details, largely unexpected."
