"A dramatic tale, one that answers long-standing questions about Spock's life choices. Fascinating!" (Leonard Nimoy)
The book itself is very revealing into the motives behind Spock joining Star Fleet. Also, Vulcan interpersonal relationships and prejudices are explored. Hearing a book read by Leonard Nimoy himself, who could go wrong? Unfortunately there are periods of narration where there are sounds like a racketball game is going on in the background. Mr. Nimoy's voice is muffled, and I am distracted by the sound effects. I thought someone was throwing a ball against the house. If you can get passed all the distracting sound in background, then you will be satisfied.
Well written, gripping and engaging. When read by the late Leonard Nimoy, it almost feels like you are in a Federation dining hall hearing Spock retell the tale from memory! (He doesn't do a bad job mimicking the late DeForrest Kelley, either!)
Good story, good characters, no depth
I was disappointed by the abridged audio and bought the hardbound book. Much fuller and richer story.
