What Happened to The Good Stories from Before?!
on August 24, 2001
I was an original fan of the TV show, and was excited that one of the stars, Richard Hatch, started writing stories. I was glad that the same characters were there in the first book and liked the new ones introduced. I had hoped, in the TV show, that Apollo and Sheba would get together, so was glad that he had kept them together. I was also glad that he gave Athena a stronger role--so, I greatly enjoyed the first book and eagerly looked for the second book. The 2nd one was o.k., not as good as the first, but I hoped the 3rd book would get better, like the 1st one. So, when it finally came out, I bought the hardback edition so I could finally read it--but was greatly disappointed!! Other reviewers have pointed out the large number of gramatical mistakes. I couldn't believe that he broke up Apollo and Sheba just like that after a long relationship and then went on to Cassopeia!? And the character of Cain was an insult to the TV character and the actor! I'm very sorry I spent so much money on the book. When the next one comes out, if I even want to read it, I'll check it out from a library! Sorry Richard Hatch, but you're not it the league of Sci-Fi story tellers like Gene Rodenberry, George Lucas or Steven Speilberg!
