    I found two copies, second-hand, here in the Netherlands. One for 9 euro's, the other for 10,95. That's more then the newer novels cost.... Not sure what to do. I mean, I do want to read it, but paying over a tenner for a second-hand paperback....

    LOL, probably so sir. LOL. I must've not seen that error plus I'm still getting use to my girlfriend's labtop since I'm use to a keyboard itself.

    Did anyone else State side have problems getting a copy of Book One? I'm kinda of surprised with Barnes & Noble since they are never behind like this. I had to order it from the store since they didn't have any copies in store.

    I'm about 70 pages into Immortal Coil and loving it. I forgot how much i missed having Data around. I have no idea if TPoM will feature him (flashbacks would be fine) in any way, but it'll be cool to get a partial sequel to IC.

    Really ? I read it recently and was disapointed - I had been looking forward to it. It was good (6 out of ten, maybe 7) but could have been so much more...

    Mostly. He is back, but Data himself isn't sure if he's Data or just another android with Data's memories.

    With so many people reading Immortal Coil now, I suggest somebody opens a dedicated review thread with a poll attached? :drool:

    Btw, ENT featured Arik Soong in the Augment trilogy after Immortal Coil was written. They do not contradict one another, or do they? :confused:

    Mack, you BASTARD.... *lol* Good book, and he's back killing people again. Won't say who. Voted 'Above Average' as I'm very reluctant to hand out outstandings. Heh.

    Nothing I can really think of and I'm almost to the end of the book.

    I dont see how they would, at least not in any big way. At most, Immortal Coil would assume Noonien's quest to create artificial life is his own, not one begun by his father(?) Arik.

    I've also pulled it from the shelf again, as I'll likely be buying PoM next thursday. I wasn't too crazy about Immortail Coil during my first read - certainly a minority opinion at the time - but I'm finding that I'm enjoying it more this time around.
