'The Arrival' is an ultra-cool book, it is not nearly as 'fannish' as one would expect. There are some plot problems, but not major ones, for example, the show suggests the first Taelon landings were during the day, not at night. Also, the cover is slightly misleading-it shows the EFC character 'Lili Marquette', but she is not even mentioned in this book. Most of 'The Arrival is written in a flash back to 1936, a time when Doors' father is 'abducted' by the Taelon 'Lekron.' Dispite the fact that most books based on tv shows are quick reads, this book is well written. I reccomend this book to EFC fans-you know who you are-and others, though if you are not an Earth Final Conflict fan, I suggest you watch the show for a better understanding of the characters.
