The first book in C.J.Cherryh's eponymous series, Foreigner begins an epic tale of the survivors of a lost spacecraft who crash-land on a planet inhabited by a hostile, sentient alien race. From its beginnings as a human-alien story of first contact, the Foreigner series has become a true science fiction odyssey, following a civilization from the age of steam through early space flight to confrontations with other alien species in distant sectors of space. It is the masterwork of a truly remarkable author.

Good store but certainly a different kind of scifi
Complex. I found the story a bit slow and confusing in the beginning, especially the first 2 parts because I just had trouble following it and the flow for a while.
That is difficult to say because it was really all about 1 character and I wouldn't say that I really felt connected to any other.
I liked the narration but did have trouble identifying and keeping track of the characters. However I think this was more because of the style of story and how they were referred to. This might have been a bit easier reading this listening
Politics is complex in the future as it is in the present.
I liked the story eventually but I struggled for a long time to understand what was really going on and what the real perspectives were because it was all form a single point of view with very little historical context. Even at the end I'm not sure I really figured out the divisions, sides, and perspectives. I will read the next in the series and think more will become clear.

Not sure I would like it.
