Title : The Return Rating : 3
Writers : William Shatner Year : 1996
Review : It has been a long time since I read Shatner's first three Kirk novels, so I won't try to go into any specific details about the plot, because Frankly they all kind of mesh together at this point. That being said, however, what I do recall (even now) is that although the story seemed to be logical enough that it could one day be used to bring back Kirk in a film or t.v. show, the book was horribly slanted in favor of TOS cast. I understand that Shatner wrote the books, and so for them to show TOS cast in a good light is not unexpected or even unreasonable. Yet, if I had never watched any Star Trek before reading the books, I would have found TNG cast to be a bunch of bumbling idiots as seemingly anytime there is a problem in the book Kirk or his buddies figure it out, while TNG cast only makes things worse. While by no means am I suggesting that a reader should not pick up these books if they see them in a store, I felt it important to note that if you are simply a die-hard TNG fan, you might be a bit upset with how your favorite cast is often treated in these novels. That issue aside though, the only other quibble I have is Shatner's constant use of "....and he took his last breath", or anything like that (read the first book in particular and you will see what I mean :P) Overall, worth reading I think.
