Star Trek III: The Search for Spock by Vonda N. McIntyre

Star Trek III: The Search for Spock (Star Trek TOS: Movie Novelizations, #3)Star Trek III: The Search for Spock by Vonda N. McIntyre
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Another excellent novelisation from Vonda N. McIntyre taking the basic elements which were in the movie and giving them far more depth and complexity. I'm not a fan of ST III considering it to be very shallow but this novel addresses all my criticisms adding substance and detail to characters who suffered during STII as well as giving far more plausibility to events and relationships which played out on the big screen. We have additional story elements for Peter Preston/Scotty, Savvik/David, Valkris/Kruge as well as far more about Carol and Kirk. These additions made me wish this novel was a true representation of the finished movie, as a piece of Trek cinema it would have been quite exceptional:)
