The Wrath Of Khan by Vonda N. McIntyre

Star Trek II: The Wrath Of Khan (Star Trek TOS: Movie Novelizations, #2)Star Trek II: The Wrath Of Khan by Vonda N. McIntyre
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What can you say, a novelisation of the greatest Star Trek movie ever to grace the silver screen can not go wrong and it didn't. In fact you can easily argue the book is better than the movie thanks to the extra depth and characterization given to elements that where not seen, were truncated or never even existed in the script. The look at the science team developing Genesis adding so much more to their deaths than we got out of the movie and an interesting take on Joachim and a little extra for Savvik and Peter as well. Lets me honest a novel has the opportunity to expand a story in areas a movie with a severely restricted run time has to ignore and as readers we get the benefit.
I don't think I need to go into the plot of the book, doubtful anyone would be reading that hadn't seen the movie so lets just say it was well worth the time even for a die hard fan of the movie.
