Recommended for: extreme fans of Q - and no one else

This book doesn't even really deserve three stars, but I had so much fun with it! John de Lancie, the actor who played Q in a few of the Star Trek series, engages in self-absorbed (duh) first-person narrative. The book is full of rhetoric and some interesting plot "episodes," but the overarching plot can be summed up in a couple of sentences. Q makes some great observations about humanity and religion, but the novel is mostly an exercise in wordplay. The book would be better written as a short story. It's a quick read and a brainless one. Read it for fun, but if you're expecting anything spectacular, don't bother, or you're just going to get angry. Yay for de Lancie for having some fun and to my favorite Star Trek fiction writer, Peter David, for somehow reeling it in.
