Good but not really memorable,
This review is from: Cadet Kirk (Star Trek: Starfleet Academy) (Paperback)This is a young adult book so the plot is pretty thin - just like the book itself - and rather straightforward and uncomplicated. Unfortunately, I do prefer a bit more twists and turns and at least a surprise or two. Also, I didn't like the fact that 99% of the book was told from McCoy's POV and then suddenly, for just two scenes, it switched to the bad guy's POV - it could've been handled differently, with McCoy hiding and listening to the bad guys' conversation or something; this abrupt change of POV was a bit... strange.
But I loved McCoy's monologues, his acerbic comments and his "OMG, we will so die here!!!" attitude, that was pretty funny. Kirk didn't click for me much here, but I did like the way the three of them - Kirk, Spock and McCoy - influenced each other's way of thinking.
So, all in all, a good book, a quick read but not all that memorable.
