Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I'm currently torn between:

*Menace from Earth
*Space Cadet
*Red Harvest
*Death Troopers (which I have to read after Red Harvest, since it's a sequel)
*Captive of the Desert King
*Fledgling

Go Death Troopers and Red Harvest back to back and get lost in a Galaxy far far away, the timing is right with the movies coming back to theater

Actually Red Harvest is a prequel to Death Troopers, DT came out first. But I haven't read them yet, so I don't know if it really matters what order you read them in.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I have only read DT and it was perfectly understandable as a standalone. I haven't read Red Harvest yet, but if nothing major has changed between this May 2010 interview I had with Joe Schreiber and the release of the book it tells the origin story of the virus in DT, so there's little to none overlap of characters between the novels and it shouldn't be 100 % necessary to read them in the chronological order. But as I said I haven't read Red HArvest yet, so all this is just an (educated) guess.

I finally reached the top of the waiting list at my library for Star Wars: Darth Plagueis, so I'll be starting that today and Rings of Time will have to stay on deck for one more book.
Bumped by the Dark Side! The Sith are truly insidious . . . .

Well If it's any consolation, I'll actually be buying Rings of Time, instead of getting it from the library like I did with Darth Plagueis!

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Finally finished Enterprise: Daedalus's Children by Dave Stern and posted a review here if anyone is interested.

Currently taking a break from Star Trek books though and am reading "The Two Faces of Tomorrow" by James P. Hogan.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I finally managed to get through Paths of Disharmony. I was disappointed in how little Shar had to do with the story. Overall I found the Typhon Pact books underwhelming - not bad, but not compelling either.

Now reading Indistinguishable from Magic. I'm intrigued by the story, but I'm finding the shorter-than-usual scenes kind of distracting. Usually when a book has such rapid POV changes, it's building suspense and anticipation toward a climax of some sort. And that might be what's going on here, but I'm about 1/4 of the way through the book, and so far it feels like I'm constantly climbing the first hill of a roller coaster without ever reaching the top.

That is true.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I've decided to give up on CSI: Snake Eyes. I'm just not finding myself caring about either of the cases in the book at this point, and I've got alot of other stuff that I'm more intereseted in reading on my to read pile.
EDIT: I've decided to replace it with The Amber Spyglass, the last book in Phillip Pullman's His Dark Materials. I absolutely loved the fist two books in the series, but I got distracted by other things and never got around to reading TAS.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I recently read the STAR TREK VII : Generations novlization and thought this book made an okay but movie I always liked one hundred times better, it explained all the things that made no sense, to the best of the authors ablility, and really filled in the gaps with the deleted scenes that were really necessary to understand the plot actually, so thats a shame that its up to the novel to finish the film, but JM Dillards GENERATIONS novel is superb! And she found a way to get Spock and McCoy in there as well and that was swell! Love it!!! Here ye here ye!

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Just started reading Spirit Walk: Old Wounds, Book 3 in the first iteration of the Voyager relaunch. The first duology managed to go against everyone's gripes on here, so lets hope that the second continues the trend.

I'm coming off of Q-Squared which I read for the third time. Not quite as good as I remembered, don't seem as epic this time around, but I'd love to see the Track A timeline revisited one day. Least of all, to see if they can ever get their Data back.
