Full Circle Review Thread (Spoilers)

The Super Brando posted this link to Trekmovie.com's review of Full Circle in another thread. I figured that since it had been four or five minutes since we had a new Voyager thread, we were losing ground so here goes....

http://trekmovie.com/2009/03/19/libr...r-full-circle/

My favorite quotes...

"...Far from being a re-hash of the Voyager that many of us found somewhat lacking on television, Beyer's take is excellent, meaty fare and is one that really demands your attention..."

"...Beyer offers a character-driven story with enough drama, intrigue, suspense, and humor for three or four novels, and did something I never imagined doing with a Star Trek: Voyager book: she created one that I simply drank in, reading the final four hundred pages in one night..."



And....we're off...

Well it sounds like it's going to be a very enjoyable read and a good way to continue the series, I'm looking forward to it even more after reading this. (Just a shame It won't be out in Britain until May!)

Re: Full Circle Review Thread (Spoilers)

Great review, very much looking forward to the book (having lost interest in the Voyager series after the second or third season). BTW, how is Afsarah pronounced? Is it "AF-sarah" or "af-SAR-ah"? Sounds Middle Eastern... Persian, maybe?

Re: Full Circle Review Thread (Spoilers)

Sounds great, Kristen. But if it doesn't have Voyager's characters in it, please call it something else. Star Trek Delta Quadrant springs to mind.

^ But they all are in it, aren't they?

Anyway, good review. I'm really looking forward to this book. I can tell it will be epic.

Edit: never mind. This is a review thread; I'm not going to carry over other arguments in here. AuntKate - I replied in the Bring Janeway Back thread.

Re: Full Circle Review Thread (Spoilers)

Well, from what managed to read over at Amazon, I'm digging it.

I'm stoked that a certain character I hate seems to have either died or quit, so WOOHHOOO!

Two more weeks....

Emphasis on the first syllable...AF-sarah.

All 8 of the series regulars who returned from the Alpha Quadrant are in it.

And Mark, Carla, and Libby aren't, at least not in any significant way. I'm content.

It would probably be better if you did read the other reluanch novels, but I've heard that it's not really necessary. Supposedly Kirsten provided enough detail that you can follow the story without having to read the other books. It's been a few years since I've read them anyway and I barely remember them to be honest. I think it will be a while longer before I ever read Full Circle, if I even read it at all.
