Title : Ship of the Line Rating : 3
Writers : Diane Carey Year : 1997
Review : I enjoyed this book, and have now read it many times. Diane Carey has a very loose and offhand writing style, I don't know how else to put it! It's a bit like reading a movie, which makes it appealing to people who do not want a hard read. My favourite parts of the book have to be the initial battle, and the swashbuckling guerilla adventure of Riker, Bateson and Scotty in the lower decks of the Enterprise-E. It also nicely fills a void in the TNG Trek storyline. I also like the reference to maritime traditions throughout the book, and the quotes from Hornblower at the start of certain parts. I would strongly recommend this book to anyone who likes a good easy read, and enjoy!
Title : By The Book Rating : 2
Writers : Dean Wesley Smith, Kristine Kathryn Rusch Year : 2002
Review : An interesting book. I don't want to comment too much on how it was written, but the vocabulary is dare I say, a little basic. But that's probably because I'm used to reading Tolkien! The book is basically about the very first Enterprise attempting to make first contact with the Fazi. After it goes drastically wrong they soon to discover another species on the planet, who are deadly to go near, and to contact them, the crew need to find another way of communicating. I don't really have a favourite part of this book, but the part where the away team are trying to escape from the sea-dwelling aliens creates a great deal of horror and suspense! A good job from the writers there. Overall I quite enjoyed this book and is a nice story for Enterprise fans.
