    It was great.

    I myself am a huge fan of TOS and TNG. The humor in this is awesome and it's a good read for if you want to know more about the characters.

    Peter David strikes again

    The only bad thing about this book is that it is not in unabridged audio. I have purchased 'Q in-Law' several times in paperback, once in audio and paid to hear Majel Barrett and John deLancie perform it live in Atlanta. Mr. David does not know how to write a bad book. He has an outstandingly subtle sense of humor as well as an extremely graphic ability to bring the written word to life.

    From the author of Tales of Ancient Xenar

    This is perhaps one of the best Star Trek fiction books I have ever read. It is FUNNY. Its a total laugh riot. You had to figure when you paired Lwaxana Troi with Q, you get a very hysterical Star Trek story, especially when Lwaxana gets the powers of the Q and uses it against Q for betraying her. Also, Wesley Crusher is in this and you get a few laughs from him as well. I highly recommend this book if you're a trekker and looking for a good laugh.
