    "An Interesting ST Story"

    This story by Shatner is interesting mainly because if takes place in STOS time and fits in well with the TV show. The story plays out like many ST novels and works well with Shatner's reading.

    As a fan of STOS novels I have been wanting to read Shatner's work for a while, and this book did not disappoint me.

    "The "Stories" In-Between The Stories"

    All of us who were thrilled by the escapades of the crew of the USS ENTERPRISE remain so to this day---but what about the "side escapades" of those crew members? what adventures did they encounter when they were not on the ENTERPRISE? Shatner gives us a "behind-the-scenes" look into what transpired with him & his crew that expands the Star Trek universe exponentially & also how the actions of those involved do make an impact on the shaping of what I would call "Universal Destiny". "The Ashes Of Eden" takes us on that journey during the "Generations" story & tells the "side escapades" of Cap't. Kirk from the viewpoint of one who knew him best---Spock. I enjoyed this sideline story immensely & would encourage all to acquire the sideline stories to the main stories of the Star Trek Universe & to "Boldly Go---Where We Have Yet To Venture".

    I've been an Audie Awards judge since 2008. I have enjoyed audiobooks since the days when they were called "Books on Tape".

    "Shatner is the coolest man on the planet."

    This is a great dramatization. The sound effects are superb! Chekov's Russian accent was a little of, but it did not detract from the enjoyment of this mini audiodrama.

    "Not a bad Star Trek story...."

    But not a great one either. My issue with this (and it is mostly one of personal taste)is that it is very character-centric, specifically the Kirk Character, which I find a bit tiring. While the plot progresses nicely, it still seems a little heavy on the examination of inner workings of this "great hero", and tends to trump the story a bit. However, as I said, this is mainly my personal taste. It's a good story though, especially if you are a ST fan

    "Captain James T Shatner"

    I often wonder listening to Shatner Star Trek stories if the man has not entirely forgotten that Kirk is a work of fiction? This is a good story though, with all the old favorites and no great knowledge of Star Trekkiverse needed. Enjoyed listening to it. You imagination soon takes over and fills in the images. Shatner is a good writer of this stuff to give him his due.
