Star Trek, The Next Generation: I, Q
John de Lancie is excellent at 'Q' the story is very amusing throughout, he keeps the tempo just about right, the imagination works overtime from beginning to end. If you like ?Q? then this is the one for you.

First ever audio book - very disappointing
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Sadly this was a very disappointing first experience with audio books. Though John De Lancie made a superb attempt to engage the listener, it just wasn't enough to make up for the weak and often vague storyline. Rather than a well-thought out plotline, it felt very much like an unending, disjointed ramble punctuated with occasional plot points, weak attempts at humour, and constant (overly long) mini-stories that seemed to add very little to the overall tale. On more than one occasion I found myself wondering what on Earth the current dialogue had to do with the story, only to find it summed up in a single statement that would have more than sufficed in the first place. At other times it felt like the author was trying to vent their own personal grievances (nearly 5 minutes spent criticising religion for no apparent purpose other than to justify that Q didn't believe in a superior being, which had already been highlighted earlier in the story?). Sadly this experience has put me off audiobooks for the time being.

Fun and laughs
What can be said about John DeLancie? He is fantastic. He brings all of his charisma and charm to this book that he did to his role on TNG. I don't think any former cast member could do a better job than John. I actually laughed out loud last night while walking my dog. People must have thought I was wierd.
I only wish the story could have been longer, or at least unabridged. Every part of a book is important, not just the action parts. Thank you John DeLancie for writing this book and thank you for narrating it!

Great Q Title, Excellent Work
I found this title somewhat more enjoyable than the other available titles featuring the character Q. John is not only a great actor, but a great voice actor as well. The story is quite enjoyable. Q manages to go off on his many tangents throughout the story, moving from thought to thought, much like his character did in the TNG series. The story is full of important social commentary, which I found very appropriate for this day and age. It isn't amazing, and the pivotal points and climax are not extraordinary, but at the end it left me saying "Hmmmm...". An enjoyable story, and well worth the 3 hour investment.
