Μόλις διάβασα τη δεύτερη αυτοβιογραφία του Leonard Nimoy.

Είναι πολύ ενδιαφέρον βιβλίο και διορθώνει διάφορα misconceptions που είχαν δημιουργηθεί από την πρώτη του αυτοβιογραφία και ιδιαίτερα τον τίτλο της (I am not Spock) αλλά και τη στάση του απέναντι στις διάφορες ταινίες.

Μου άρεσαν ιδιαίτερα κάποιες στιγμές του βιβλίου, όπου περιέγραφε την ανθρώπινη πλευρά του, όταν μέσα από τη δουλειά του εξέφραζε και στοιχεία της ανθρώπινης πλευράς του. Παραθέτω το αγαπημένο μου απόσπασμα:

Spoiler: show
I'm reminded of a scene in Star Trek VI, which Bill Shatner and I played in Spock's quarters. In a moment of self-examination, Spock asked Kirk, "Is it possible that we two, you and I, have grown so old and inflexible that we have outlived our usefulness?"
As the camera rolled, I suddenly felt all sense of "mask" slip away—as though it were Leonard Nimoy asking the question of Bill Shatner. (That, indeed, was the subtext. Spock's question had to do with our usefulness to the Federation; but as Nimoy to Shatner, the question dealt with our usefulness to Star Trek.)
In that moment, I felt a complete merger take place; the separation between myself and Spock disappeared. Not only did Spock speak to Kirk, but with one and the same voice, Nimoy spoke to Shatner. Spock and I had become one.

Από την άλλη μεριά, η αυτοβιογραφία εστιάζει στην επαγγελματική του ζωή και παραλείπει πολλά στοιχεία που θα ήθελα να διαβάσω π.χ. για την προσωπική, οικογενειακή και άλλες πλευρές της ζωής του.

Πολύ ωραίο το απόσπασμα... Θέλω κάποια στιγμή να διαβάσω ολόκληρο το βιβλίο.
