Takai should have softened his reading voice and come up with a more mature way to refer to his mother and father, since he talked about them so much.
In recent years, Takai has shown a healthy sense of humor that seems to be completely absent here.
Takai can do different voices. He should just soften his reading voice.
not cut, but less use of the endearments: "mommy" and "daddy"
I appreciate his perspective on Star Trek but that doesn't' come until the last half/third of this narrative. Unfortunately everything before is just not interesting. I guess I was hoping for more of the asian actor perspective in hollywood and there seemed to be very little of that here.
Little character plot holes like Data's missing chip and Worf's presence bothered me. The novel ignored Wesley's (mostly cut) presence in the film. JM Dillard knows how to write these characters, though and Boyd Gaines does an excellent Picard and even sings Blue Skies as Data!
This book lets the character moments breathe and makes the end more emotional than the Movie.
I love Time Travel and this is a unique one. A man comes unstuck from time and this story provides a thought provoking perspective on our perception of time and death, and so it goes.
No, I don't think so but maybe Ethan Hawke just didn't get the tone of the book. There certainly is a grim tone in this anti-war book, but there is at least a thread of humor that Mr. Hawke completely misses in his reading, maintaining a sleepy dull tone of voice that's almost a whisper.
"So it goes"
This is not just an abridgement of the book but also of the movie, offering less than the movie in terms of narrative. The length of this recording should have been a sign of that.
