It’s being reported that Spock himself, Zachary Quinto will lend his voice to the reading of the novelization of JJ Abrams upcoming reinvention of Star Trek for the recording of the audio book.
The book will be written by Alan Dean Foster, who isn’t new to the novelization game, not in the least. Foster was a ghost writer on the adaptation of the Star Wars movie, and he wrote a Sequel to Star Wars called Splinter of a Mind’s Eye. Other notable novelizations he’s penned include The Thing, Alien, Aliens, and Transformers. Foster is the absolute man for the job when it comes to the novelization of a science fiction movie.

Below is the story description. The Star Trek novel is expected to be released sometime very close to the release of the movie, if not on the same day.
One grew up in the cornfields of Iowa, fighting for his independence, for a way out of a life that promised only indifference, aimlessness, and obscurity
The other grew up on the jagged cliffs of the harsh Vulcan desert, fighting for acceptance, for a way to reconcile the logic he was taught with the emotions he felt.
In the far reaches of the galaxy, a machine of war bursts into existence in a place and time it was never meant to be. On a mission of retribution of the destruction of his planet, its half-mad captain seeks the death of every intelligent being, and the annihilation of every civilized world.
Kirk and Spock, two completely different and unyielding personalities, must find a way to lead the only crew, aboard the only ship, that can stop him.
