    (E–pub READ) We All Died at Breakaway Station A blast from the past picked up because I was intrigued by the SPOILER ALERT title and the whole central concept during a war which is going very badly for humankind against an adversary so very alien that no one is even very sure how they provoked it three space ships are limping home to Earth staffed by officers and crew wounded so badly that they technically died and have been reanimated as uasi cyborgs And just as these wal

In many ways the title says it all I found this books recently for 50 cents and I remember wanting to check it out from the library decades ago but my older brother wouldn t let me Digression my brother would tell our parents he was taking me to the library and to do his homework The reality of it was I his cover for seeing his girlfriend end of digressionI am not a huge fan of military science fiction and what makes this book work in so many ways is that it is not about endless battles in space or on the ground The story is about the toll a war that humanity did not want takes on people The crew of the three ships stopping at Breakaway Station are comprised of men and women who have died and been revived or died been revived and pieced together with various artificial organs Bracer the Iwo Jima s captain is missing the lower half of his body his eyes and one arm Maxel the first officer has multiple artificial organs the captain of the medical transport ship is missing most her face and she has 20K in cryogenic sleep on his shipBreakaway Station is the last communications outpost between the colonies and Earth If it falls there will be no communication and the one intelligence mission taking place in enemy territory that could save Earth and the colonies has information that needs to go through Breakaway StationSuffice to say the station ends up attacked and that doesn t happen until roughly the last 40 pages of the book Before then we have Bracer musing about the war s cost to himself and his crew These three ships held together by spit and bailing wire are supposed to go to Earth for the crews and the cold sleep patients to receive medical attention Instead Bracer makes the decision to stay and to ask the crews of all three ships to be willing to sacrifice of themselves All of this to insure Breakaway Stations stays operational long enough to transmit the information to Earth when it comes because the station was already nearly destroyed in one attack And like the Alamo and Thermopyale there is no way the ships or the station will survive the next attackThe book was written in 1969 and perhaps in some ways it is dated There are passing sections that refer how Earth morals towards marriage sex and drugs have changed The discussions between Bracer and Roger the ship s organic computer and Maxel about sacrifice and what has become of their lives worked for me In addition the book which does not break 250 pages would be 800 pages in 2010 The author takes us to three colony worlds a captain of small colonial ship a scout ship commander and the personnel on Breakaway station In thinking about Revelation Space while reading this I was reminded of the old saying less is I got character and story from Meredith than I do from ReynoldsWhen Meredith tries to apply science FTL and how the communications are set and why they necessary the internal logic is consistent The science is not perfect but the consistent internal logic is not always found with some science fiction authorsAs to the Jillies the aliens who want to kill humans Meredith does his best to create truly alien aliens While he might not have completely succeeded on the physical end he did a better job than most on the psychological endA worthwhile expenditure of my reading time

The Past I bought this book when I was in junior high some forty odd years ago I really thought it was a good book and it caught my imagination I remember loaning the book to my friend and never getting it back The Present Some twenty eight years later I bought the book through com It still read fresh and clear now as it did some thirty years ago It was in my book collection that I took to Ira To some this book might be cheesy but Meredith does a good job hitting the psychology of command and leadership both in Bracer his fellow captains and the chain of command who must do what they must do in order to win His science though thin works well and it does represent a theory about how FTL would work His battles are close brutal affairs which reflects the thought that with all the technology available both sides resorts to methods that at best are one level above the stone age No fancy footwork here very straight forward very believeable Merediths comments on society reflect the age he lived in Having grown up in those times his representation is true to the mark on how some thought society primarily western society was evolving too My only disagreement with the above post is that I have read the REVELATION SPACE series Comparing both books is not a good comparison Reynolds works in science For his future must work the science must work in order for the plot to evolve Meredith is a writer who uses the science to frame the story That being said I did enjoy reading all of the REVELATION SPACE series Again a WE ALL DIED AT BREAKAWAY STATION is a worthwhile book and while I am at it may I recommend THE SKY IS FILLED WITH SHIPS reply edit delete flag back to top You are following this discussion instant edit saving your comment comment add bookauthor some html is ok preview Add to my Update Feed add to my update feedCheck this box to include your comment in your Update Feed Your Update Feed is what your friends see on their homepages and in their update emails You can control whether this box is pre checked on the my account page Email me when people reply enabled edit formatting tipsGoodreads allows some html formatting well formed web urls automatically get turned into linkslink my link textlink to book use the add bookauthor link or Harry Potter and the Sorcerer s Stonelink to author use the add bookauthor link or JK Rowlingimage Width must be 0 400 Height must be 0 1000 alt is a description of the image All three are optional but recommendedbold text italic text underline text strike text indent text blockuote paragraph Note tags must be properly nested example OK test Not OK test Add a reference book author Book Search for a book to add a reference add link cover Author add link photo flag abuseFlagging a post will send it to the Goodreads Customer Care team for review We take abuse seriously in our discussion boards Only flag comments that clearly need our attention As a general rule we do not censor any content on the site The only content we will consider removing is spam slanderous attacks on other members or extremely offensive content eg pornography pro Nazi child abuse etc We will not remove any content for bad language alone or being critical of a particular bookmy rating edit my review shelf read
