A good story despite a mediocre film 5 May 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Most of the B5 fans I know were disappointed in the Thirdsapce movie. (It didn't compare well to the incredible effort of In The Beginning.) However, Thirdspace is actually a pretty nice story that comes out much better in the print version.
Things certainly make much more sense, at least.
I do notice a distressing similarity to "The Touch of Your Shadow, the Whisper of Your Name" (novel 5) -- they're by no means the exact same story, but they are similar.

The last best hope for things that go bump in the night 25 July 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Based on the second TV movie based on the hit tv show, Thirdspace follows the pacing logic of a good horror novel: it starts out slowly, builds up, and the concludes in a dizzying climax. The best way to discribe it is to think of the brilliant movie Event Horizon, but influenced by Lovercraft (as EH was obvious styled after Clive Barker.) When Ivanova and her squad discover a giant relic floating in hyperspace, little does anyone realize the trouble it will cause. So Ivanova, Captain Sheridan and Security Chief Zack Allen find themselves fighting for their survival amoung the chaos that has been unleashed from the hellish dimension known as Thirdspace. Entertaining read, with enough flare to make you wait for the movie.

Keep up the quality 21 July 1998
By Geoff Loker (gloker@isgtec.com) - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Del Rey is showing Dell how the series of Babylon 5 books should have been done. Let's hope that the originals scheduled to start coming out this fall can keep up the quality of "In the Beginning" and "Thirdspace".
Peter David has a real feel for the characters within the Babylon 5 universe - he did, after all, write a few episodes - and it shows. The story is not an original by him, since it is the novelization of a screenplay, but he handles it very well. A very good movie can make for a very poor novelization if slavishly "adapted" - thankfully, Peter David has made a very good book based on what I hope will prove to be a very good movie.

Good movie, much better book 12 Sep 2000
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
The movie was good, much better than "River of Souls", but the books was incredible. Peter David has a way of writing that is absolutely incredible.

An impressive book. 4 July 1998
By anichols@sw.ua.edu - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This book is an obvious improvement to most of those that came before. Of course, that's what comes of being adapted from a screenplay, and not cooked up in the mind of someone writing from outside the entire B5 frame of reference (ie "Clark's Law"). The only drawback to the entire book were the silly and increasingly annoying foreshadowings which tease the reader with great horrors to come. Apart from these, though, it was quite rewarding, and worth a five star mention.
