    Outstanding

    I've read this book again, and again. It is a very touching story, and so well written. You feel what the charactors are going through, and this book actually makes you cry. It's a book that the late Mark Lenard (who played Sarek) Helped to develop. Every Star Trek fan should read this book.

    The BEST book in the world

    Shakespeare, Cervantes, and Twain, all great, but none can match A.C. Crispin. In her book Sarek she portrays emotion like nothing I've ever read. (I do not love this book just because I am pathetically obsessed with Star Trek. I can recognize good literature too.) In this book her writing is so moving that an emotionless Vulcan can make you cry. The book is very well planned out, and she can write the characters very well. YOU SHOULD READ THIS BOOK!!!!!

    Best Star Trek novel written!

    The title might suggest that this book would feature logic as its primary emotion, if you will. However, this is easily the most touching Star Trek novel I have read yet, and I have read a lot of them. Sarek is faced with a difficult decision with results that are sure to bring a tear to the eyes of anyone not dead inside. There's action and romance in here and I just couldn't put the book down until the last page was read. Outstanding!

    Spectacular Plot

    I have read A.C. Crispin's novel Sarek several times and each time I pick up hidden meanings that I have missed before. I recomend this book to anyone who loves Star Trek, especially Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country. It's a great sci-fi adventure!

    Intimate look at the relationship between Sarek and Spock

    Mark Lenard's mirage of voices sets the stage for a very intimate view of the mysterious Sarek of Vulcan's private life. The intimate exchange between Sarek and his son, Spock highlight the years of never-ending conflict between them. Star Trek fans, this is a must listen.

    Nick Sullivan's reading was better

    Spock's mother, Amanda Grayson, is dying, and Spock returns to the planet Vulcan where he and Sarek share a rare moment of rapprochement. As Amanda's condition worsen, duty calls Sarek away, creating more conflict between father and son. However, they must put aside their differences to foil a Romulian plot to destroy the federation. The 70 year plot of abducting Vulcans and breeding them in captivity on the planet Vreeland to harness their telepathic ability in order to control the minds of Klingons into war with the federation. Of course the plot is foiled.
