|Reviews for Descartes' Error|

Not that it really. matters but it's peek not peak and nuevo not neuvo. I've seen some other typos but those two are both repeated multiple times.
FTD I'm rereading this for the 3rd or 4th time and I've read the entire Decartes series, some stories more than once. I do hope you eventually finish the last one with Kirk and the Vulcan human expert ... and tribbles.

Incredibly well written story! One can tell you're publishing your own books! Shame they're not translated and published here in Poland.
I loved how you've put the whole situation with Xelium at the beginning of the story and from the POV of Sharpton, so that the reader already knows storm's coming, but still they don't know what exactly happened between Spock and Uhura. It really adds to the tension and makes reading even more compelling.
Also the additional motif of the project they're working on is amazing in its idea and resolution and also simply a fine technique to make reader even more attached to the story and wanting to know the end.
Also the humor! :D
It was a pleasure to read, thank you so much!
I'll buy your ebooks when I finally get my Amazon account!

I don’t normally review until the end of the story, but I had to comment on how cute it was that he looked at the empty sofa for 30.5 seconds, that really got to me!

My third time reading this. Still just as wonderful. You have captured Spock's voice perfectly.
I'm a huge fan of your work. The fan fiction stories led me to your books and I've bought all of them and enjoyed them immensely too. Thank you, thank you for sharing your talent!

I finished this story with a humongous sigh followed with a squeal of delight. This story was skillfully and wonderfully written. Thank you for sharing it with us, it will for ever be on my mind. "The original mad dog." HAHAHA I'll never forget that thought by Spock about his father.

OMGOSH, That last paragraph gave me goosebumps. Romulans are not real, but it still disturbed me deep down.

HAHAHA I LOVE TYBACK!

I actually teared up! TEARED UP! Earth dodged a bullet indeed! I never thought of a Romulan being merciful, and I hate not knowing EXACTLY why he spared Terra.
Freakin story got me thinking deeply about time verses light years and space. NOW HOW AM I GOING TO GET SOME SLEEP? UGH!
I love this story though, even if you are taking me on a 'roller coaster' of emotions that would confuse Spock.

Sarek "the original 'mad dog'." ROFLMBO Four hours later & I'm still laughing so hard. Of course I'm thinking of the original Sarek which makes it all the more HILLARIOUS!

I absolutely love this fic and have been rereading it for years. This chapter between Jabari and Spock is one of my favorite.

"There was nothing quite like blasphemy over lunch, Spock thought." ROTFL!

I've been reading this story since the day before yesterday and finally finished. It was satisfyingly long!
I very much enjoyed this fic for so many reasons, too many to recall off the top of my head after 74 chapters, but I'll list as many as I can think of. I liked...the slow burn, the pacing, the clear/understandable writing style, the attention to detail, the cultural differences between species and how Spock (sometimes Uhura) reacted to them, the biting, the anger issues within Spock, etc. Tyback was adorable and I wanted to keep him.
There were a few things I noted throughout that I thought required work, but nothing to do with the plot itself. I noticed a tendency toward word repetition, some minor grammatical mistakes, missing quotation marks, etc. Also, the warm blooded vs cold blooded thing confused me a bit since humans, as mammals, are invariably warm blooded. I believe the intent was to show that Spock is the opposite, making him cold blooded like a reptile, which would mean he would be incapable of regulating his body temperature (it's why snakes and lizards bask in sunlight). I digress, but it was a touch inconsistent. Still, it wasn't a main plot point/device, so it didn't ultimately matter much. Overall, my impression was positive and I will jump right into the sequel.
thanks for writing this! love it.
