4.0 out of 5 stars Trekkers Treking through muddy Trek waters
David is known for sometimes making parts of his book rather confusing. In fact, every now and then one HAS to reread David's book just to make sense out of some of the stuff that goes on, and this book is a prime example of that. The book itself really isn't all that confusing: Someone from Picard's past is He**-bent on taking down the Borg, but the last few chapters...

3.0 out of 5 stars It's a great read, on it's own
It's a great read, on it's own, but it ramps up the power level to ludicrous too soon and then we have the immovable object meeting the irresistible force situation.

Some lovely touches - and it's a worthwhile read, but you just have to allow for the fact that the author was having fun in the sandpit and just sometimes went overboard on the cosmic power

4.0 out of 5 stars Trekkers Treking through muddy Trek waters, 12 May 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Vendetta: The Giant Novel (Star Trek : the Next Generation) (Paperback)
David is known for sometimes making parts of his book rather confusing. In fact, every now and then one HAS to reread David's book just to make sense out of some of the stuff that goes on, and this book is a prime example of that. The book itself really isn't all that confusing: Someone from Picard's past is He**-bent on taking down the Borg, but the last few chapters are enough to give even William Shatner a headache. As you may notice by looking at the following reviews there are mixed feeling about this book, and I have to agree that it is not one of David'd best. However, it is still worth 4 stars (maybe even five) hands down and worthy of purchasing simply because it is nice and lengthy. Great for a boring summer day read or a long car trip session, this is a welcome addition to any Trekker's Library.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fitting into the gap between Hardcover & Paperback., 30 Nov. 1997
By A Customer
This review is from: Vendetta: The Giant Novel (Star Trek : the Next Generation) (Paperback)
Star Trek novels have fallen into 3 categories: Hardcover (NY Times best seller material), Paperback (usual novel length stories), and now giant novels.
The Giant Novels represent stories that are bigger than the typical Star Trek novel, BUT not strong enough to warrent a full blown Hardcover edition.
Vendetta matches this description perfectly.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dr. Mccloud must be a Borg!, 4 Sept. 1997
By A Customer
This review is from: Vendetta: The Giant Novel (Star Trek : the Next Generation) (Paperback)
This volume must be one of the best Star Trek adventures ever written. The only reason Dr. McCloud didn't like it is that he has alresdy been assimalated. What form of medicine does he practice?.....Don't wait till he gets it down!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Borg-themed masterpiece!, 2 April 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Vendetta: The Giant Novel (Star Trek : the Next Generation) (Paperback)
Although the planet killer was sort of corny, everything else about it was cool. The Borg are COOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and this book portrayed them accurately and well. The effect the last few chapters gave was redundant, but effective. The line "You will be irrelevant" had me laughing very hard. The Ferengi Borg was funny.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best Trek novel I've read., 19 April 1997
By A Customer
This review is from: Vendetta: The Giant Novel (Star Trek : the Next Generation) (Paperback)
I have been reading Trek books for a few years now, and this is the best one! I think it would also make a great story line for a film. It grabs you from the get go and ingeneously ties together story lines from the original Trek and Next Gen. If your interested in blasting Borg. . . buy it!

4.0 out of 5 stars "Vendetta" is all right. But not Great., 6 April 1997
By A Customer
This review is from: Vendetta: The Giant Novel (Star Trek : the Next Generation) (Paperback)
Peter David is an awesome author. His highlight is the humor in all his books.
The authors preface in this said that he didn't right this one to be funny. IT had a good plot, but his usual jokes weren't their. I say get it, but wait until you want it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best TREK book, 26 Sept. 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Vendetta: The Giant Novel (Star Trek : the Next Generation) (Paperback)
What do I say? This book captures the TNG universe perfectly! I would recommend this story even to one of those people who don't read any of the books in the new series.
5 stars for sure

4.0 out of 5 stars This book is great, just one problem., 4 Feb. 2001
This book sees the return of the Borg and the Planet Killer from: The Domes Day machine and is one of the best, with detail that makes it so good, an insight into the victims of the Borg. Now here is the problem that only gives this four stars. Peter David said he used the "Star Trek Writer's Technical Manual" and yet he over looked one vital point. The captain of the captain of the Repulse is male, not female. This is an oversight that goes right through the book. However, this is still one of the best Star Treks ever printed, why does Peter David have such a low opinion of himself, he's a writing genius. Read this, its just suburb.
