Publisher's Summary

Are you willing to settle for an ordinary life? Or do you think you were meant for something better? Something special?"

One grew up in the cornfields of Iowa, fighting for his independence, for a way out of a life that promised only indifference, aimlessness and obscurity. "You will forever be a child of two worlds, capable of choosing your own destiny. The only question you face is, which path will you chose?"

The other grew up on the jagged cliffs of the harsh Vulcan desert, fighting for acceptance, for a way to reconcile the logic he was taught with the emotions he felt.

    "Very Entertaining"

    Zachary Quinto the actor that plays Spock in the movie does a fantastic job narrating. the story plays true to the movie but extends the story very well.

    I listen while driving. When I review, I'm much more apt to discuss the performance than the content. Sometimes, a bit of both.

    "Typical Movie Tie-In but good listening"

    Nothing jumps off the page to me but the reading was extremely well done by Zachary Quinto (who plays Mr. Spock in the film). His timing and voicing made an otherwise "typical" movie tie-in book a very enjoyable experience.

    "Quinto rocks this one"

    Well, thanks to this book I now comprehend the finer details of the movie! And, I found the book a well developed, good Star Trek "read", as well it should be coming from Mr. Foster. This movie and book, despite the different destinies, still reflect "my" Star Trek. Zachary Quinto's narration is incredible--he is dead on for all the characters. If, heaven forbid, he ever gives up acting, he could have a fantastic career in narration. Couldn't believe it was not Karl Urban doing McCoy, Quinto was so perfect. The only character not quite perfect, though still very good was--surprisingly--Spock Prime! But then, if he is to grow up to be SP, his voice must be right!

    "Great book"

    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.

    "An enjoyable listen - love 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.

    "book okay - quality of recording bad"

    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.

    "Not as good as the movie"

    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.

    "would have been greater without the language"

    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
