4.0 out of 5 stars An excellent novelization. Feb. 1 2001
Format:Mass Market Paperback
If you are familiar with the movie that this book was based on, I will say that this is one of the most faithful novelizations of a movie that I've ever seen; almost every scene from the movie is included, and most of the dialogue is faithfully kept as well. Ms. McIntyre satisfies her creative urge by filling in gaps in the storyline, adding internal dialogue and insight into the characters' thoughts as well as transitional scenes that further explain and clarify the storyline.
If you are not familiar with the movie, there are a few quibbles you might have with the story, but for my money, the quibbles are all things that originated in the movie, and that Ms. McIntyre is not responsible for: the running gag of Kirk attempting to "fit in" to 20th century society by cursing, which he does clumsily, and Spock's even more clumsy attempts to follow Kirk's lead. I'm not certain whether this was supposed to be purely a humorous bit, or whether it was supposed to be a comment on how silly vulgarity makes one look, and how foolish it is to try to fit in in that way. If it was intended for humor value, its humor wore thin very quickly, and if it was intended for the latter purpose, I'm not sure that it was effective. But in any case, that, as I say, is not Ms. McIntyre's fault; it was part of the movie that she was working from. Similarly, any part of the plot that referred back to the previous movie, and Spock's tenuous grip on his memories as a result of being recently "reborn", do not sit well with me (see my review of "The Search For Spock" for my objections to that movie/book) but again, this is not the author's fault.

5.0 out of 5 stars Even better than the movie July 6 1998
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book was wonderful. If you've seen the movie, you'll want to read the book. It's a Star Trek book with all the familar characters, yet it takes place in the 1980's. Imagine Cap. Kirk and the others going back in time to capture and bring two humpback whales back to the future to save earth from being destroyed and in the meantime they run into a few problems. Because that is mostly what the books about, except of course for Cap. Kirk falling in love again.

5.0 out of 5 stars A adventure for all ages Dec 3 2003
By Mary
Format:Mass Market Paperback
It is even better then the movie. It has all the elements of a classic Star Trek episode, with Capt. Kirk falling in love with a beautiful young women, the crew dealing with a different time periode, MR.Spock and Dr.McCoy going at it like an old married couple.......And there are the Klingons, a major threat to Earth, and, of crouse, the whales... Who wouldn't like this book?
