5.0 out of 5 stars Pick up this book now!, 10 July 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: "Babylon 5": To Dream in the City of Sorrows (Paperback)
Just the fact that this book is out of print in the US and used copies are listed at $25 USD shows how much B5 fans like this book. It is written by jms' wife and is meant to fit into the B5 cannon. As other reviewers have said, this is a must read for any fan of the Valen storyline or any fan of Marcus. I was very lucky to find the book here, after a frustrating search online and in bookstores.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dreaming of a good book!, 1 Feb 2004
By A Customer
This review is from: "Babylon 5": To Dream in the City of Sorrows (Paperback)
For anyone who's a fan, this is a must-buy. For anyone who isn't a fan, you'll enjoy it anyway as it doesn't hinge on former knowledge and is genuinely a good story, exploring the different forms of friendship, love and loss, and the way we express them.
It's well-written, drawing you almost immediately into the feel of the series with several plots which weave in and around each other in a very satisfying way. The understated characterisation of Jeffery Sinclair, Catherine Sakai (both quietly determined people, and the balanced partnership of a couple is rarely seen and very nice to see) and Marcus Cole (sorely missed, and in this incarnation still wracked by helpless fury at himself and fate) is pretty much spot on what we saw in the series. This look at a part of their story we only heard through hearsay before just makes us love the people that much more.
The one flaw which made me drop it to 4 stars, was the fact that the timeline doesn't quite agree with that implied by some comments in the TV series from the characters involved.
Having said that, enjoy it, it's a good book.

4.0 out of 5 stars This is a must-read for true B5 fans., 16 Mar 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: "Babylon 5": To Dream in the City of Sorrows (Paperback)
This book isnt a very demanding read, a bit lightweight in reality, but it more than fills the gaps that us true B5 fans demand to be filled that were left vacant by the TV series.
Reading this it is easy to see how much better the whole show could have been had the scenes covered in this book been added to the TV series itself. Infact it could have been a completely different (and better?) show altogether !
We find out about Marcus and how and why he become a Ranger. We learn about the relationship between Catherine Sakai and Jeffrey Sinclair. We find out about the journey Sinclair makes to change the history of the universe itself. For lovers of the Valen story its wonderful !
Id heartily recommend this book to any B5 fan. But Im not sure how non-fans will appreciate this book quite as much.

4.0 out of 5 stars First B5 book I read, 27 Jan 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: "Babylon 5": To Dream in the City of Sorrows (Paperback)
As a relatively new person to the world of Babylon 5, this was the first B5 book I ever read, and I would recommend this book to any B5 fan. However if you are unaware of the main "arc" storylines of the series itself, parts of this book may be unclear. However, for all those who enjoy Babylon 5 I would strongly refer this book to you. A good read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy it now, 24 April 2000
By A Customer
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: "Babylon 5": To Dream in the City of Sorrows (Paperback)
A great book IMHO, which takes forward the B5 story. We find out what happened to Sinclair upon his arrival on Minbar and how he became Ranger 1. We find out what happened to Catherine Sakai, and how Marcus became a Ranger. There is also much about the Vorlons. A must buy for a fan of the series.
