The Autobiography of Mr. Spok by: Una Mccormack

This book is an absolute must for any fan of Star Trek and any fan of Spok.

I watched this show as a little kid with my dad, then watched the JJ Abrams’ movies. (Don’t get me started on the second one) and watched some of the shows on Paramount+. I really like Star Trek

This book added an in depth look at one of the series’ most beloved characters. We get to learn so much about Spok, his family, his friends. His time as a cadet and onward.

The inclusion of his sister Michael was really nice, loved that and the book is addicting. I couldn’t put it down even though my eyes were burning as I read.

I will absolutely buy this book for myself and the Star Trek fans I have in my life.

They’ll appreciate a chance to get a look under the calm veneer of Spok to see what really made him tick. To see what his childhood was like. And the intricacies and difficulties he faced growing up half-Human and half-Vulcan. And with what happened after his sister joined the family.

There’s a lot I can’t say because they would be spoilers for the book.

One thing I can say is that the author handles this so well, the character and his life, with such respect, that it felt like I was reading about a real person. Not a character from a TV show, but a real living and breathing person.

It comes out 9/14/2021. Buy it you won’t regret it. Get it for the trekkie in your life.

I received this ARC in exchange for an honest review.
