Anyone who is familiar with David's previous Q novels will be expecting a certain level of intricate plot-weaving, matching well-known Trek elements with revolutionary new material. And you will not be disappointed. As the brilliant authors of this dazzling adventure throw you into a typical whirlwind of confusion, you will be amazed at how well, and how unpredictably, situations and characters interact. De Lancie's authorship here is quite clear as well; the multilayered satire and unmistakable sarcasm of the narrator, Q, are wrapped into a surprising web of plot links and reappearances that bring back memories of Douglas Adams' works. While this book is easily as enjoyable as David's past novels, its high-brow humor and unsurpassed wit make it stand from previous successes. While anyone would enjoy the severity of the book's theme set at such a meandering, jovial pace, Trekkers will enjoy the quality of allusions and inside references that make this one a clear cult classic as well (see if you can't find the poorly-veiled reference to 'The Princess Bride'). Overall, this is one of the best novels I have ever read, and I will certainly read it again, if only to catch the nuances and jokes I missed the first time around. 'But you don't have to take my word for it!' Read it yourself, and enjoy!

I would recommend this book to all star trek fans. It is exciting, imaginative and funny! It is one of my favorites because it's so good you don't want to put it down. And that's the sign of a good book. Only Peter David and John De Lancie could have written a story like this they are great together! And I hope they write more star trek books together. Peter David is my favorite star trek author and probably always will be, but most all star trek books I've read were very good. But- Peter David holds you in your seat and captures your interest so well because he always has so many surprising levels in his story's to explore and its a great trip for the reader.

I loved the 1st person writing style of this book. I also enjoy just about anything from Peter David so my wife bought this for me for Christmas. What a great gift. The story runs smooth and quick with Q, Picard, and Data trying to figure out how to save the Universe. A look at Q's wife and son were nice but I would have liked to see them in it more. One thing that was missing was the other Next Generation crew. Read this you wont be wasting your time.

My favorite episodes in TNG are the ones with Q, this book channels him well! His sense of humor and the way it is written and organized is great!

One of the Best Star Trek Books I have ever Read. Another Good one by Peter David

This was a good book. I had never watched a TNG episode when I read the book, so the other characters were kinda simple and shallow, but I got to know Q more. What I disliked from the book is that it 'favors' Christianism and Judaism.

It being written by Q, John Delancie himself makes this book essential to all Q fans. Who better to tell a story about Q than Q himself. And in the novel, the character Q tells the story, he gives flash backs of his past in this book. He says things like he is the one who first gave fire to man. This book is really great, some may not like it being that the only main characters in the novel are Q, Picard, and Data. If you are a fan of all or either of the 3, then get this book, it's really hard to put down!

The books main symbolism is the greiving process. This works out well and makes a funny story.
