Uh... no. Sorry.

I got this title because, when I was in the eighth grade, I fully enjoyed the novelization of STAR TREK IV, and the price was insanely low.

Unless my (nearly photographic) memory is failing me, this is NOT the novelization. It's more like a reading of a summary with a few interjections by Spock and sound effects, and contains none of the added detail I remember (such as the scripted, but unfilmed, scene where Sulu encounters his ancestor).

Takei and Nimoy must have really needed the money, that's all I can say.

This was the first Audiobook I ever had on Tape. Nice bit of Nostalgia. Spock's parts are brilliant.
