    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.

    What did you like best about this story?

    Each section had a defined purpose. I like the way the author draws the scene enough to carry a mental picture while I'm listening without delving into excruciating detail for its own sake.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Didn't laugh or cry, but there were sections I enjoyed enough to listen to again when the story finished.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm going against the prevailing opinion. I enjoyed Alice Eve's performance more in the audio book than the movie. She did a fun accent for 'Scotty' and varied her cadence to define the rest of the characters. I never felt that she was doing 'funny voices.'
    My only criticism (spoiler) she didn't do that awesome scream that she did in the movie.

    BTW, Eve did a better job portraying male characters in this story than most male voice actors do portraying female characters. I’m looking at you Michael York in Brave New World!

    I am clearly in the minority. If in doubt, I think the sample provided is a good representative for the rest of the story.
