  • "More Unabridged TOS Please"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    No mind blowing sci fi apart from that already established in the source material but a well crafted story. I don't know why there aren't more unabridged Trek Titles. Unless this is attributable to Pocket's perceived need to hire Trek actors to read the books. This narrator was wonderful, he subtly impersonates the characters as portrayed by the performers associated with them but more importantly he lends just the right amount of tone and texture to the prose. If more full size Trek books appear I'll certainly spend my credits on them. Well, if they're TOS. The TNG and after stuff is probably better but I just don't get a geek on for it.

    Spock's mother, Amanda Grayson, is dying, and Spock returns to the planet Vulcan where he and Sarek enjoy a rare moment of rapprochement. But just as his wife's illness grows worse, duty calls Sarek away, once again sowing the seeds of conflict between father and son. Yet soon Sarek and Spock must put aside their differences and work together to foil a far-reaching plot to destroy the Federation, a plot that Sarek has seen in the making for nearly his entire career.

    "female Brit narrator? what gives?"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    the narrator is not the worst I've ever heard but she makes absolutely no sense narrating a story where the two main characters are male. It grated. Also she speaks in what I think Brits call a posh accent EXCEPT for dialog which is all done with American accents, other than for Scotty, of course. Huh? To quote Spock, "Highly illogical." Brit pronunciations of common words detract from story comprehension for this American. There are occasional missing words.

    Foster has written Star Trek episode and movie novelizations for something like 40 or 50 years. Great writing. Loved movie. Slogged through listening just because it cost me a credit and I liked movie.

  • "Funny but uneven"

    Would you consider the audio edition of Up Till Now to be better than the print version?

    Never read the book, though due to the audio issues it may have been a bettter choice.


    What about William Shatner’s performance did you like?

    I thought the book was very funny in parts and that no one else except William Shatner could have read it. My only criticism (though it is a big one) was the extreme volume fluctuations. While knowing that some of it is due to Shatner's delivery from "normal volume" speaking down to below a whisper, it was very difficult to listen to without having to constantly turn the volume up and down. Just when you thought you had reached a balance, it would go really loud or almost silent again. The content of the book was good and as this was my first book from William Shatner I was pleased with all the meandering and side stories, etc that he would inject, I just wish it could have been a better audio experience.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    Again the audio production made it very difficult to enjoy as much as it could have been.

    The Devil's Heart is a legendary object of unsurpassed power and mystery. Worlds that believe in magic consider it Darkness's mightiest talisman; and worlds of science consider it a lost artifact of some ancient and forgotten race. Some say the Heart enables its possessor to control people's minds and to amass wealth enough for a dozen lifetimes, while others think it capable of raising the dead, perhaps even changing the flow of time itself. But to all, the location of this fabled object has remained a mystery, until now.
