4.6 out of 5 stars

I read this book with the hopes it wouldn't be a tacky re-written plot. In fact, it kept close to the plot and the charactors were almost identicle to how they are portrayed in the series.
As Jack O'Neill would say, I was a happy camper!

This book by Ashley MCConnel is based on the pilot episode of Stargate SG-1. The way she describes the characters, and the way they interact is better in the book than in the pilot.

As novelisations go, this seems fairly good. It sticks very closely to the original script, but don't expect a lot of back-story. There is just enough added to make it worth reading, (especially one or two one-liners). For those who haven't seen the series, The Stargate is re-activated by aliens who kidnap a US Airforce officer, meaning Jack O'Neill is recalled from retirement and reunited with Daniel Jackson. They are joined by two others (Captain Sam Carter and a Jaffa named Teal'c), in what proves to be an exciting adventure leading into the new Stargate series.

I thought that this book was great! Iam a big follower of the TV. show and I thought that the book brought the first episode to life! I would recommend it to any SG-1 Fan.

I read the whole book in one afternoon - that's how good it was! I had already seen the episode on TV which made the book even better. The characters were very true to the series and the author managed to capture O'Niels humour(if you can call it that!)Would recommend it to anyone, whether you've seen the series or not.

I was, at first, hesitant about buying this, as I thought any novel of even the undeniably 'Children of the Gods' would frankly be tacky, half-done rubbish. However, my view totally changed from reading the frist few pages. The description is impressive from the start, as is the first scene as a whole. You can truly feel the emotion of some of the scenes, particularly on Abydos, where Daniel finds Sha're has been abducted, and also the parts with him on Chulak... Do not underestimate this novel!

I found this novel to be an excellent adaptation from the t. v. programme of the same name. It holds the readers attention throughout the entire book and adds those much needed scenes, that were missed out of the t. v. programme. This book gives us more indepth knowledge of the characters and what their lives are like. I throughly enjoyed reading this book and am looking forward to the next Ashley McConnell novel.

Saw this and just had to have it as an avid Fan of the TV series. Would recommend.
