From Barnes & NobleIt's not often that I find myself delighted to encounter first novels' flaws, but that was exactly the case with Aftermath. On the one hand, it is quite simply a terrific book -- a solid story with an engaging cast of characters, and a voice that is all-too-unique in our genre. On the other hand, it does have few (only a few) first-book flaws -- but to my eye, those only serve to enhance the experience, because this book was written by Levar Burton. These days, it's not so unusual to see a celebrity's name on a book, but Aftermath is a genuine rarity: a celebrity book actually written by the celebrity -- and it's a darn good read, too. And perhaps that's not too surprising, after all. I always enjoyed Geordi LaForge, but the best role I ever saw Burton play was when he hosted "Reading Rainbow" on public television. He convinced me then that his love for the written word was genuine, and I'm very much looking forward to reading more of his work.
