It is impossible to capture the tension of the movie in words, but reading them generated scenes from the movie in my mind

This book suffers from the affliction that all novelizations of exciting and dramatic motion pictures must suffer from. It is simply not possible to put the dynamic tension of the Kirk/Khan battle and the sadness of the sacrificial death of Spock into words. In my opinion, some of the finest acting ever done was by Ricardo Montalban in this movie. Playing an intelligent lunatic has to be very hard for the region where it is done well is very narrow.
Nevertheless, McIntyre manages to capture enough of the drama to make this book worth reading and a few literary embellishments are added. It is a quick and simplistic read; my passage through it caused the involuntary recall of images from the movie to appear in my mind. Not surprisingly, shortly after I finished this book I was motivated to watch the movie once again.
