Part 2 of 3 drags on!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Q-Zone (Star Trek The Next Generation, Book 48) (Mass Market Paperback)
The first book was good and had much more action and humor than this second installment did. Here the story, while still partly in the present, actually takes us to the past to an event that changes Q's life forever. Though the premis is good, it is drawn out ever so long, and I found myself wanting to skip ahead to where the action is.
There are a few interesting events, but Q is not as well written as he was in the last book.
Other major characters take a back seat to the overall plot in this chapter.
The one thing that really bothered me is that Jean Luc, for reasons unkown, cannot figure out why Q is allowing him to witness events in the past. It is sooooo obvious to the reader, but Jean Luc only figures it out on the last page.
I honestly think the author could have condensed book two into books 1 and 3 respectfully. Make each one of the slightly longer and cut out some of the inaction and drawn out sequences.
