this was a great book. I loved how it filled in a lot of back story that they were not able to have in the movie. I've listened to it several times and look forward to listening to it again. I never tire of it.
Zachary Quinto was an excellent choice as the narrator of this book. His voice is clear, easy and enjoyable to listen to. The author has written in a way that you truly visualize what is being said - nodding, laughing, chuckling and understanding youth, either by personal experience or vicariously through the young up coming crew of a starship.

The story I liked. What I did not like was that the recording had some bad spots, gaps where it was obvious that there were missing or slurred words. I have experienced this before with product from here, I wish they had better QA of their transfers.
I loved the movie. I felt a bet let down by the book.
The book takes some liberties with the script. Characters are painted in more depth, but imho not 100% consistent with the movie's portrayal of the characters.
With that said, it is a well written and well red book . And its enjoyable in its own right.
when we modernize things we leave nothing to the imagination. Each time a curse or a inapropriate action happened I thought. I wish they had not planted their thoughts words language in the actors lips or hands. We could have done with out the swears or the bedroom scene
