    "A MUST LISTEN!!!"

    The premise of this story is amusing, entertaining and will capture the imagination from start to finish. In this story, Q tangles with the formidible Mrs Troi and the trials and tribulations kept me laughing through the whole of the recording.

    Mr DeLancy, having played Q in the series, does a fantastic job with all the sarcasm and wit the character deserves and Madjel is nothing short of wonderful!

    "One of My Faves"

    Almost 15 years ago I was obsessed with TNG and was browsing the novels and came across a book on tape called Q-in-Law the first thing that caught my eye was the cover there was Q and one Lwaxanna Troi and I thought, "now this ought to be GOOD!" I picked it up and never put it down!

    When I saw the thing was narrated by John DaLance and Majel Barrett-Rodenbery (I don't think I spelled that right...) the actors that played Q and Lwaxanna Troi respecticvly. For fans of TNG you can't go wrong when 2 power house characters go head to head over subjects like love and the meaning of life....

    Tempers flare and lovers are spurned!! Don't miss two of TNGs most popular reoccuring characters battle it out head to head... can you guess who comes out on top???

    "Enjoyable read!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Star Trek, The Next Generation: Q-in-Law (Adapted) to be better than the print version?

    I would prefer the printed version of this book rather than the abridged audiobook.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I really enjoyed this audio book! It was a very whimsical and enjoyable read! It was short and sweet and left me wanting to physically read the book!


    Have you listened to any of Majel Barrett and John de Lancie ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I've never listened to any other recordings by these performers.

    "One of my favorite Trek Stories"
    What did you love best about Star Trek, The Next Generation?

    I loved the show and the actors who portrayed the wonderful characters of Next Gen.


    What did you like best about this story?

    In this story, written by Peter David, I laughed and enjoyed the book the first time I 'READ" the story. Then I heard it was made into an audio with Majel Barrett and John de Lancie reading. I had to get it. And the story rocked... but


    What does Majel Barrett and John de Lancie bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    What can I say, I loved them on the show and as readers they brought the fun and authenticity to the story. I felt like I could close my eyes and see the story unfold as if it was actually on the screen and not just an audio book.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Actually that is just what I did. I listen to audios while I work. Scanning files is pretty much boring. So this keeps me going. The better the audio book, the more I get done. With this book I sat and listened and worked the full length and was surprised it was over so soon.


    Any additional comments?

    Why oh why did they have to Abridge this book? It's not that long a story to start with. Someone get the story put out in a full version. Please???

    "Let down by length"

    The book is a light hearted romp through the 'Star Trek, The Next Generation' genre. Nothing remarkable, but if you like the characters included in the book, then you should enjoy this reading.

    What lets it down is the length. It could easily do with being an unabridged version. For that reason alone I have rated it lower overall.
