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.

    "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
