Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Johnson has been writing television science fiction (The Six Million Dollar Man; Alien Nation) for over three decades. Anticipating the 2008 television spin-off from the cult classic miniseries V, Johnson has created this insubstantial tie-in novel. Twenty years after invading, the Visitors now have a solid chokehold on Earth's scientists, intellectuals, celebrities and natural resources. While there remains an active resistance movement, they cannot stop the domination of Earth on their own. Enter the alien Zedti. Enemies of the Visitors (though sharing their general lack of concern for individual human lives), the Zedti come to the aid of the resistance efforts. Throughout, it remains ambiguous whether the Zedti are truly friends of humanity. The plethora of whiz-bang action scenes and huge cast of underdeveloped characters make this more of a primer for the new miniseries than a novel worth reading in its own right.

Review

Praise for the miniseries "V"

"A space age version of "The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich." -Kenneth Clark, UPI

"…The best kind of science fiction: the kind that makes you think about the meaning of life on Earth. 'V' is a morality tale, a story of how people react in the face of overwhelming tyranny. It's prime-grade television." -Nick Coleman, Minneapolis Star & Tribune

" 'V' harbors a great deal of relevant social commentary on our misuse of water, our dependence on mass-communication, our commercialization of daily life…Perhaps comparing it to Orwell may be reaching a bit, but it certainly is superior commercial television fare." - Christian Science Monitor

"…Best miniseries in more than a year.  Kenneth Johnson…knows how to make magic…" -Lee Winfrey, Philadelphia Inquirer

'V' makes a mesmerizing nightmare." -Tom Shales, Washington Post

" 'V' -Victorious as sci-fi miniseries…Dazzling…An intelligent, imaginative, engrossing four hour drama. 'V' is a thought provoking, sometimes shocking drama that keeps the viewer engaged." -Kay Gardella, New York Daily News

"Right at the top we know that 'V' isn't just another fling at science fiction - it is nothing less than a retelling of history - the rise of the Nazis done as a cautionary science fiction fable. For television this is probably a first. It is by politics and ideology that you will know 'V'." -John Corry, New York Times

"…Kenneth Johnson and his very good cast and technicians succeed in giving us an imaginative first-class thriller of substance and social significance." -Judith Crist, TV Guide

"…Absolutely stunning…a riveting tale that is utterly convincing and compelling." - Newark Star-Ledger

"It has epic heroes in Marc Singer as a rebelling TV cameraman and Faye Grant as the leader of the Los Angeles underground…It has swell heavies in Andrew Prine and Jane Ba...
