    Intellectually Stimulating

    At last, a newer science fiction novel that actually gets the brain going. This book would be a great read for any Trekkie or even just general science fiction fan. I hope this author writes more Original Series books.

    Superb Star Trek/Spock Story!

    If you like Star Trek, and really like Spock, this is an excellent book. Good plot, good characterization, and interesting ideas.

    Fun, Exciting Read

    Kinda felt weird giving so many five stars*--and even a five-star overall rating. But it's all relative, and for what it is Troublesome Minds is excellent.


    I've just gotten into Star Trek myself, so I don't know much (yet) about the fandom. The characters all seem to be spot-on, and though I tend to prefer a little more focus on the internal reactions of the characters, that's an aspect that wouldn't really work in a book like this, where the characters are already established and there are so many people with so many ideas of how they should be already. The plot is fast-paced and strong, with plenty of suspense and moral dilemmas.

    Basically, I'm up too late and tired, so just read it, and you'll know what I mean :)

    *part of the low rating for "Topical Conversation" is because, frankly, I haven't the foggiest idea of what that's supposed to mean, and can't seem to find anywhere where they tell me.

    Spock challenged!

    Very interesting concept. It was exciting to see Spock's mental acuity seriously challenged.

    A fun read.

    Dave Galanter Captures the World of Star Trek Perfectly!!!!

    I usually only read the Voyager and movie tie-in books in the Star Trek universe. Toe that may only be because I only ever find the original series books in used book stores and the writing stile in the ones I find isn't really to my liking most of the time. But Spock is my favorite character from the original series so I took a chance on this book, and I'm glad I did. Dave Galanter does an excellent job of portraying the world of Star Trek that I remember watching as a kid. And unlike some authors his does a great job o painting a picture without being overly descriptive. Sorry I'm one of those people who tends to be put off by such things (probably why I tend to stick to audio books). If you're looking for a book that captures the world of Star Trek, and subtly and actuarially depicts the relationship between Kirk and Spock; as well as gives a glimpse in to Spock's character and inner struggle this is it. I loved it and I hope you will to.
