A Quantum-Mirror Style Story May 12, 2008
Sonny Whitelaw has done another great job of writing a Stargate novel. This book is action-packed, with a time-travel story line that rivals the TV episodes with the quantum mirror. Lots of twists and turns, excellent dialog that captures the voices of the characters, and a nice wrapup with just a touch of a mind twist to it. There are a few typos and a few editing mistakes, but they didn't drip me out of the story too much. This story line includes Jack O'Neill, Sam Carter, Daniel Jackson, Teal'c, Vala Mal Doran, and Cam Mitchell as active participants on the adventure. The authors includes some really neat tie-ins to actual events, making this a fun read.
Should make a movie out of this one Mar 26, 2008
This is defiantly one of the more better written stargate sg1 books out there could see it as one of those straight to dvd movies.
A Mess Feb 20, 2008
This book has Jack, Sam x 2, Daniel, Teal'c, Cam, Vala, the Asgard, the Goa'uld, H.P. Lovecraft, Howard Carter, baseball stats, H.G. Wells, time travel, alternate time lines, and, as promised by the title, the Roswell incident. It is packed full of stuff -- but not high-quality stuff, unfortunately. It is a grab-bag of disjointed subplots, none of them developed in a very satisfying way. And, though the characters aren't grossly misdrawn, there's no real depth to their reactions.
There were some spots near the beginning where I was enthused about the story and wanted to know what happened next, but it wasn't long before I was feeling annoyed by it all. Adding to my annoyance were the amazing number of typos. This book is just riddled with them, and I can't see any excuse for it.
Sonny Whitelaw has written or co-written a number of other books for Fandemonium, but I don't know why, because the comments I've seen from fans tend to be lukewarm at best. This is the first Whitelaw book that I've read, and I think it will be the last.
Absolutely Wonderful Feb 3, 2008
Absolutely amazing book. PERFECT characterizations, highly engaging plot, interesting ideas. It really feels like SG-1, with humor and peril spread all through. It's something you wouldn't be surprised to see if you tuned into the show one night, and that's the highest praise I can give it.
Boring, needs an editor Jan 2, 2008
The plot of Roswell sounded intriguing, but I was disappointed to find the writing mediocre and the pace slow. Typos aren't the only reason this book needs an editor - in several places the writing is unclear due to questionable grammar and poor organization. The characterization is (as is rarely the case in these tie-ins) fairly accurate, but rather uninspired. I have read a great deal of fanfic that's better written than this book. Worth buying if you find it on the 50 cent shelf at your library, but I wouldn't pay full price. Mine was a present, and if I'd know ahead of time what a slow read it would be, I'd have asked for something more exciting... socks, maybe.
