Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I finished Children of the Storm a couple days ago and really enjoyed it. The only, very minor disappointment I had, was that the core Voyager characters seemed secondary to the plot. That's not to say I didn't enjoy the new characters. It's just everyone's been talking about how Chakotay is finally getting development and what-not, and I just really am not seeing it three Beyer books in. But really, interesting story, enjoyed it a great deal.

Also overcame my frustration over e-book-only editions and read Typhon Pact: The Struggle Within. It was fine, but I really would have preferred a longer story. I think Christopher's strength really lies in the densely-plotted novels that I have been able to just lose myself in.

And thus ends the giant goal of getting caught up on Trek! Well, at least as it stood when I started the list. What I had planned to cover in 2011 bled over into 2012 a bit, but I'm super proud of myself for sticking to it and finishing:

So, I have a list for this year too, but it's filled with mostly NOT Trek. Not that I didn't enjoy that ride, but I'm SO ready to visit another universe or two. First off - Artemis Fowl. I read the first one a few years ago and thought it was charming, so I'm going to read at least the first four that I already own. Depending on how I feel when I finish, I'll either go out and find the rest or move on to something else.
