#BookadayUK - Day 2: World UFO day?

On Basilisk Station - David Weber

Day 2: Favorite SF/Fantasy novel for world UFO day!

 

While I could list so many Star Trek and Star Wars books, not to mention Harry Potter and numerous Urban fantasies, etc., I simply had to list what has become one of my favorite series.

 

My father loves the Horatio Hornblower series and though I've yet to read them all, the ones I have I enjoyed very much. I wasn't sure about picking up this book, as I don't like very technical SF at all, but was told it was like Hornblower in space. I simply had to try it and I'm very glad I did.

 

I love the main character, the world she inhabits, the parallels to our world's history, and just about everything in these books.
