this book follows the tv show very point on as far as the series did. this was very entertaining, and keeps you wanting more. i am surprised that there is no more books to read? this would be a great series, and hope some good writers will continue righting the series.

I am almost finished with this book, and I can't put it down. The book makes references to actual events from the series, and it gives you a look into the minds of a few key characters, including Starbuck, Baltar, and Bill Adama. I like how the author gets in their heads, especially with Starbuck because it shows not only where the hotshot steely-eyed Viper jockey mentality comes from, but it also dips into her more human side. The inner monologue of Gaius Baltar, and the interactions between him and the Six whom no one else can see, is hilariously awkward. Very good read if you liked the BSG series.

Steven Harper's writing ability is clean and easy to follow. He paints a clear picture with short descriptions, taking you into the story and placing you beside the characters as they interact. The storyline for "Unity" is very basic, but good. My only complaint is we don't learn anything "new" about the characters or the battlestar universe. Only for can't-do-without fans of the series.

I wouldn't pay attention to pretentious nay-sayers on this book.
I admit, it's no literary masterpiece, and there are holes in the story's construction. But if you have no ability to suspend disbelief, I wonder what you are doing watching Battlestar Galactica in the first place.
I enjoyed it. It was fun. It starts off in an intense dog-fight between Raiders and Vipers, the Galactica and a Basestar....Then it gets a bit dry. However, once you're at the halfway mark, it's hard to put down.
