If you want to listen to one of the most touching, personal and at sometimes funny Star Trek novel ever written then download this file right now. John DeLancie and Peter David have out done themselfes this time. DeLancie provides a great rendition of his novel in the humoric tone that only Q can provide, and in case your wondering the opening and closing monologues of this book were read by Delancies Wife, Marnie Mosiman.
What can be said about John DeLancie? He is fantastic. He brings all of his charisma and charm to this book that he did to his role on TNG. I don't think any former cast member could do a better job than John. I actually laughed out loud last night while walking my dog. People must have thought I was wierd.
I only wish the story could have been longer, or at least unabridged. Every part of a book is important, not just the action parts. Thank you John DeLancie for writing this book and thank you for narrating it!
I really apprecaite the Star Trek stories featuring Q, even more so in the novels than in the television program. They seem to focus on a kind of science fiction I like - philosophical, questioning reality and the nature of existence. Also, the Q character has really developed from a mischievous enigma, to a full and multi-dimensional character. This is a really well done story, with great narration. Highly recommended.
I found this title somewhat more enjoyable than the other available titles featuring the character Q. John is not only a great actor, but a great voice actor as well. The story is quite enjoyable. Q manages to go off on his many tangents throughout the story, moving from thought to thought, much like his character did in the TNG series. The story is full of important social commentary, which I found very appropriate for this day and age. It isn't amazing, and the pivotal points and climax are not extraordinary, but at the end it left me saying "Hmmmm...". An enjoyable story, and well worth the 3 hour investment.
John de Lance is a wonderful reader, especially for a story involving Q.
I despise abridged works. Did not listen threw it away. Wish I could get my money back. There should be a big warning that pops up telling you a work is abridged. I can't believe I paid good money for a hack job :(
NOne. Abridged books are a waste of money. There should be a law against selling them or at least large warnings.
*sigh* Audible ripped me off twice today with abridged books. I need to go find a better book seller
I am a Star Trek fan and I love the character Q. But this story was disappointing from the start making Picard and Data seem like unecessary tag-a-long characters and Q appear like any other normal dad, which is totally off. Q narrates (in real life also) which attracted me to the story at first until I began to find that his character spends most of the time either going off on silly tangents that have no relevance to the story or engaging in atheistic/agnostic drivel. By the end of the story the authors have insinuated that God is a naked female who lives on a beach and has suicidal tendencies?!? This is a poorly written story and should be struck from the Star Trek record. If you want a good "Q" story, none is better written or narrated than Q-Squared, in my opinion.
First of all, this book was all of three hours. Before it even started, it was over. Second, the story was pretty lame. Q is one of my absolute favorite characters and I very much enjoyed hearing him narrate, but other than that, this title was not worth the time.
