Only Kate Mulgrew could have done this book justice. She IS Captain Janeway, as surely as William Shatner IS Captain Kirk... Everything about her narration of this story was delightful: pacing, inflections, and emotion were all spot on.

The story itself has three main threads running through it: milestones and character shaping events in Janeway's life, Tuvok and an away team stranded on a planet, and Voyager battling with the Kazon over said planet.

I most enjoyed the bits about Janeway's life. Kate Mulgrew really brings the young Katherine to life - you feel like you are there with her in her early life. The threads involving Tuvok, Kes, Harry, etc seemed to suffer somewhat from abridgement. Overall I wasn't terrifically interested in the these two other threads. There is one point where some Kazon meet a very gruesome end that I thought was unnecessarily grotesque and overdone. Fortunately this portion is brief. Overall, a most excellent and enjoyable listen. I really felt that the Janeway portions added a great deal of dimension to the character.
