A Deepness In The SkyVernor Vinge (Amazon)
It's one of those books that truly stayed with me even as I finished reading it. The basis of a good sci-fi, to me, is not about the science, but the relationship between the imaginary future and the humans that inhabit it; to quote a cliché, the examination of the human condition. But beyond that, it's simply a well-written book. It has deception, it has intrigue, it has character progression, it has characters that made sense. If you have a craving for a good lengthy novel, this will scratch that itch.
