I haven't finished it yet and it's already ripped my heart out
It's a very good read. And, also, one of my favorite pieces of cover-art for a Trek novel.
Yea I like it too. But for some reason the one I have from the library is very old and beat up
One of the best Trek novels I’ve ever read.
It is 17 years old.
As with a stuffed animal, that just proves it's been loved.
That is a great way of putting it
One of the best!
I don't remember much of it, but it was an entertaining read.
I haven't read it in a long time, but IIRC I skimmed the good parts once, then read the whole thing, then at a later point I skimmed the good parts again.
Great Trek Lit!
I love The Immortal Coil. I'm still pissed by the fate of a certain character from TIC who returned in one of the Cold Equations books.
I really like Immortal Coil it's one of my favorite Star Trek books about Data.
Loved Immortal Coil!
Just because I'm a nitpicker about such things, let it be noted that the title is Immortal Coil, not "The Immortal Coil."
If it helps, I thought the same thing when I first saw the thread title.
It's a play on Hamlet's line "When we have shuffled off this mortal coil," so there's no "the" involved. ("Coil" in Shakespeare's time meant fuss, ado, turmoil, trouble, so "mortal coil" means the troubles that come with living. Also known as the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune, a sea of troubles, the heartache and the thousand natural shocks that flesh is heir to, etc. Okay, Hamlet, life sucks, we get it.)
Oopsie! I can fix that
Actually, I can't, but thanks for pointing that out!
