Reviews for A Change of Perspective

Funny how the author's stories seem to tie into the current movie. Jim's responses in the film can be taken one way or another depending on the mood you are in when you watch. I did feel like he was still very private about his relationship with family and hesitant to speak of Winona or his brother. I remember he was relating a story she told him at the end and this tale reminded me of that.

A wonderful homecoming-and a good look at Kirk finally grown up enough to see his mother as a person.

A great introspective peice for Kirk, some of the descriptions were a little hard to follow, but for the most part I found it a very enjoyable read. Loved the bit about the quarry, and his simulatneous gratefulness and regret that his mother had finally 'found' what she was looking for in his eyes. Good stuff.

I feel like a broken record every time I read one of your stories, because I have to comment and say what a marvelous grasp you've got on what makes these characters tick. I really, really see the ST:09 characters whenever I read them. Your writing's magnificent.

How slowly and beautifully you are having Jim grow up. Finding new relationships with his mother and brother as adults is wonderfully handled - I do hope one of the things Spock Prime tells Kirk is about the parasites that attack his brother's planet.

I'm looking forward to seeing Kirk and Spock, either Spock in your future stories.

This was perfect. Poignant and bittersweet and just beautiful. You captured this moment so wonderfully. I really appreciated this glimpse of Winona, because everyone either seems to gloss her over or turn her into a caricature of the absent, negligent mother without ever really demonstrating that she too had a great many things to come to terms with.

Thanks for sharing!

I really love this story. The dialog (both internal and between characters) flows very naturally, but above all, the story just provides some wonderful insight into Kirk. I especially loved that Kirk acknowledged how his past - even the darker parts - gave him the strengths that would serve him well as a captain. I am hoping that we see this kind of insight and recognition in the character if there are any more sequels to the movie. Well done!
