Book Description

July 22, 2003 Battlestar Galactica

An ibooks original! An all-new adventure of the crew of the battlestar Galactica, co-written by series star Richard Hatch, who portrayed Captain Apollo.

Have the Galacticans truly found their "paradise" among the stars? Apollo thinks so, as they journey to a mysterious planet called Gemon, located through spatial coordinates vividly imprinted in Apollo's mind. Will the fleet stay and make this inviting, verdant planet their final home? It looks that way, until the traitor Baltar begins having nightmares about a new race of Cylons, more evil and deadlier than ever before -- a Cylon race with superior technology, warships and weaponry.

4.0 out of 5 stars Things are not always what they seem November 8, 2003
The planet Paradis is aptly named. To the weary survivors of the Battlestar Galactica and its "ragtag, fugitive fleet," it looks like a perfect haven after 25 yahrens of fighting their way across space from the Cylon-destroyed Colonies of Kobol. But wait a minute - exactly where are the implacable Cylons now? Why do this world's natives so closely resemble the Nomen, whom we met in this series' earlier books? Who is the real father of Cassiopeia's baby? And why can't ibooks hire competent editors?
Answers to the Cylons' apparent loss of interest, the Paradis natives' mysterious history, and whether or not Cassie's child was fathered by Commander Apollo, you may or may not find in this book. I won't spoil it by telling you more, except to say that you and I will both have to read the next one because this installment ends with a truly diabolical cliffhanger. To that I can only say: WELL DONE! To copy editing snafus so creative and numerous that I occasionally found myself guffawing when the authors definitely didn't intend that as a reader reaction, and to story editing glitches that nagged at me even after I'd finished, I have no answer. Worth reading, especially for a devoted Galactica fan like yours truly? Yes, emphatically. But worth the price of the hardcover? I intended to wait for the paperback, and I probably should have. Nevertheless I'm giving it 3.5 stars, and rounding upward, because you can bet I will keep reading this uneven yet intriguing series.

4.0 out of 5 stars WELCOME TO PARADIS July 13, 2004
By Pat
PARADIS provides the weary Galacticans with a planet to live on and explores the consequences that can come from the negative aspects of the colonial mindset. I like the way that the problematic aspects of turning Pardis into a colony are explored. Rich characters are the novel's biggest plus. All the same type of errors that plague I BOOKS are here again, but PARADIS itself plays like an excellent episode of a continuing original BSG TV series.

5.0 out of 5 stars five stars June 30, 2004
Over the past few months I have begun watching the Battlestar Galactica televison program for the first time. I was never much of a science fiction fan and had limited access to televison while growing up. I didn't see the Battlestar Galactica televison series until my husband purchased the complete series on DVD.
I became an instant fan after Saga of a Star World. I then began reading my husbands collection of Battlestar Galactica books by Richard Hatch. Both the books and the series have flaws (what doesn't?), but they also have wonderful characters, heart, imagination, and warmth. There's a special charm to Battlestar Galactica. Watching the episodes and reading the books has been five star experience for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars I enjoyed reading this June 2, 2004
By A Customer
Paradis is Richard Hatch's 5th Battlestar Galactica novel. The man can definitely tell a good story. I love what he's done with the characters. He's proven to me that he can tell an engrossing tale, but the lack of decent edititing is still a problem in these things. The mistakes are a shame, but I won't b*tch and moan about them too much. Paradis is another captivating tale that delivers plenty of entertainment value.
