    Pioneering director J. J. Abrams has delivered an explosive action thriller that takes Star Trek into darkness. When the crew of the Enterprise is called back home, they find an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organization has detonated the fleet and everything it stands for, leaving our world in a state of crisis. With a personal score to settle, Captain Kirk leads a manhunt to a war-zone world to capture a one-man weapon of mass destruction. As our heroes are propelled into an epic chess game of life and death, love will be challenged, friendships will be torn apart, and sacrifices must be made for the only family Kirk has left: his crew.

    Where does Star Trek: Into Darkness rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Good story to go along with the movie! Yes, there are plot holes big enough to fly a Bird of Prey through, but hey! -- it's still entertaining and fun.


    What didn’t you like about Alice Eve’s performance?

    Alice Eve -- Carol Marcus in the movie -- was a questionable choice for narrating this story. I can't blame her -- she probably did the best she could. I fault the production team and director for signing off on poor narrative choices and inept characterizations. She didn't even bring any life to her own character's dialog. And worst of all, WHO in the world thought it was a good idea to represent Khan -- one of the most elegant antagonists in the Star Trek universe -- as a sneering, cackling cartoon villain? I almost expected him to offer Kirk a poison apple. Ack! I had to work too hard to overcome the narration and concentrate on the story.

    This presentation is particularly disappointing after the terrific narration by Zachary Quinto for the first novelization of the new series.
