Re: VOY: The Eternal Tide by Kirsten Beyer Review Thread (Spoilers!)

I just wish people would read the book before being happy she's back. I mean, I'm sure Kirsten did a great job, but she deserves to be praised for what she actually wrote; and how it happened, what it means to the characters and the world, is surely more important than just whether or not it happened. Praising the event in the abstract rather than the actual story it happened in just seems superficial to me -- as superficial as condemning something as "like fanfiction" just because you read two brief sentences about it in a BBS thread. Positive or negative, Kirsten's work deserves to be judged for what it actually contains, not just for some hearsay someone read about a single part of it.
