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.
In the far reaches of the galaxy, a machine of war bursts into existence in a place and time it was never meant to be. On a mission of retribution for the destruction of his planet, its half-mad captain seeks the death of every intelligent being, and the annihilation of every civilized world.
Kirk and Spock, two completely different and unyielding personalities, must find a way to lead the only crew, aboard the only ship, that can stop him.
"The wait is over."

I loved this book. I wasn't even close to being a Star Trek fan, in fact I had only seen enough episodes to tell the difference between a Klingon and a Vulcan. However, after seeing this movie and listening to the book, I am so excited to learn more about Star Trek. I saw the movie before I listened to this book so it was just nice to have all of the gaps filled in where the movie just skimmed over poeple, places, and topics. I would definitely recommend this book to any Star Trek fan or someone who just enjoys a good sci-fi book. Zachary Quinto, who portrays 'young Spock' in the movie, narrates and I think he did a great job! He did all of characters and background noises.. it was kind of silly but I don't think the story would have been half as interesting if he hadn't been the one to read it. I hope he decides to read some of the other Star Trek books!

Just like the movie but more...
This unabridged version is like listening to a special extended version of the movie. It is well narated and would be an excellent listen before or after you hve watched the movie.

Suitable for Trekies only
Watched the film and just wanted to get some more detail. This book is not exactly faithful to the film, but then it is only an adaptation - and no one could agree that the film could be considered faithful. Still no clue where the attack on the Klingons comes in, and I think the film's method of having Spock lure Nero out system for the showdown is to be prefered. That said, I enjoyed it. There are one or two glitches in Audible's copy of the recording which are a little annoying. Most noticable is upon Spock's return to the bridge before the final battle. I loved the final punchline, though I had to play it back a few times due to the accent (it's Beagle not "Beekle").
