He capture all the characters vocally with an ease unknown to first time narrators, but without sounding like a characture himself. With his easy narrative style, he makes this a comfortable audio to spend six and a half hours with.

"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.

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."

The novelization of the J. J. Abrams reboot. This time we meet James Tiberius Kirk and Spock before they became the famous pair of the Enterprise. A rip between parallel universes (or time travel, never quite clear); a vengeful and grieving Romulan; and the start of the best crew in any universe

If I like a film, I'm usually eager to read the script adaptation to fill in the blanks, to expand the emotions. I've always found Foster to be one of the best at this. And I did like this book...sorta. I wish I could explain why the hesitation, but I can't. In this case, at least for me, the movie was better than the book. Not something I say often. 3.5 out of 5 for the book; 4.5 out of 5 for the film.

I initially started reading the paperback book version of this book for myself. Then I found out that Zachary Quinto himself read the audiobook. 'Spock' could read the Star Trek novelisation to me? Oh, why not?

I'm not an avid fan of audiobooks. Usually they're slow, they're bland, the voices are never how I expect them. I'm a fast reader so I generally like to pick up books and read on my own. So, I was a little hesitant in buying this. Basically, I heard a clip of Quinto reading Chekov's voice and decided to try it.

I'm glad I did. Quinto voices EVERY character in a different voice. In his narration voice, if you didn't know who was reading, you probably wouldn't make the connection that it's technically Spock talking. However, when he voices Spock, THEN you know it's Spock talking. His accents for Scotty and Chekov are cute and pretty accurate. His Southern drawl for Bones makes me laugh- it doesn't really sound like Karl Urban to me- but it's not bad. I like it. You can hear the humour in his voice in some of the scenes and the disdain in his tone in others. Really, he does a superb job at capturing the tone, mood, and character voices.

As for the book itself, it follows the movie. It gives back story to details that may have been unclear in the movie, or just little details that maybe you wanted to know. Deleted scenes from the movie made it into the book- Spock's birth, Kirk's childhood leading to stealing the car in the beginning of the movie- and further develop the characters.

All in all, the audiobook is totally worth it if you don't mind having someone read to you, or if you're a fan of Quinto or his voice. The book is totally worth it all the way around, no matter what form you get it in. If you're a fan of Star Trek XI, then this book definitely is a must-have.

After watching the movie several times, I was REALLY looking forward to reading this book that is a tie-in with the movie! Boy, was I REALLY DISAPPOINTED!!!!!

The more I read this book, the more I questioned if Alan Dean Foster EVEN READ THE SAME SCRIPT that was written by Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman! It also became obvious that Foster DOES NOT KNOW HIS STAR TREK!!!!!!! He has Sarek, Spock's father, behaving like a HUMAN instead of someone born and raised on Vulcan! He has Younger Spock behaving like Kirk, punching out a Romulan, during interrogation, INSTEAD OF USING THE VULCAN MIND MELD THAT IS SO PROMINENTLY PORTRAYED IN THE MOVIE!!!!! Plus there were several inconsistencies; for example Foster cites two different Regulation numbers referring to the SAME regulation of being emotionally compromised while in command! He mentions that Spock Prime called Kirk "Captain" at the first meeting at the cave entrance. (Which didn't happen! Spock Prime asks, LATER, "You are not the captain?") He also IGNORED the fact that Dr. McCoy IS FROM GEORGIA, NOT KENTUCKY!!!! And that line he wrote in the book: "Left with nothing but my skeleton"?!?!?!? HELLOOOOO, the line in the movie SPECIFICALLY SAID THE WORD "B-O-N-E-S", which is WHERE HE GETS HIS NICKNAME FROM!!!!!!! And tossing the dog in, at the end, making a strange reference to the dog's ears???? WHAT IS UP WITH THAT?!?!?!?!?!? In my opinion, Foster should have had a Trekker proof-read the galley proofs BEFORE it hit the publisher's desk!

Either Foster needs to go back to TREK School or the TREK fans can write BETTER than he did!!!!!!

4,5 stars for a very good novelisation. Foster writes the characters well (especially Spock) and with grace, delivered in an equally well-written prose. It has given a twist on a tale I've already seen three times in movie format and one more time in the graphic novel (what can I say, I'm a big fan of the reboot and like many millennials, it's what got me into the fandom in the first place), and it's been an awesome and enjoyable ride. I really love how he handles the narrative. In some ways, I actually enjoyed the novelisation more than the movie since it expanded on a lot of things without getting bogged down with too many details. A fine line to walk. It's odd, but...it can be said that the novelisation is better than the movie, at least in some aspects.

Would definitely recommend, especially for fans of the reboot.
