Brillant - I literally could not put the book down,
This review is from: Immortal Coil (Star Trek: The Next Generation) (Mass Market Paperback)
I have always loved Data, and so when I was recommended this book based on his character, I couldn't wait to get it. I was a bit sceptical at first, as I did not believe it would be as good as the series, having never read one of the novels before. How wrong I was! I found this was well written and related to both the Original Series and The Next Generation perfectly. Once I started reading, I could not put the book down, and read it from cover to cover in one night, although I only ended up getting 2 hours sleep!
The book gives an insight into the creation of Artifical Intelligence, and sees Data coping with the emotion of grief, the fact that he may not "die" for a long time, developing intuition, finding love, and discovering that no matter how long he will live, he should make every moment he has count. This is a great motto for all of us.
I found this book utterly exciting, and a must for die hard fans like me! I was glad that Data had finally been given a plausible love interest, although the bit where she is trying to save him, and exposes her real identity at that time had me on the edge of my seat. This book is a definate must have!
Keep on Trekking!
