Ok, I admit that this book probably doesn’t deserve five stars by most peoples standards, but I picked it up on a whim when I was out at the lake in the summer of 1978, before I had even seen the movie or T.V. series, and I utterly and completely enjoyed it. I’ve reread it many times, and wore out my first copy. I actually enjoy how some parts of the story differ quite abit from the TV show. If you’ve never read it and enjoy either version of Galactica, I’d recommend giving this novelization a try, you might be pleasantly surprised.
