4.0 out of 5 stars deserves 3.5 but not 3, 21 July 2004
By A Customer
This review is from: Worlds of Star Trek "Deep Space Nine" Volume 1: Cardassia and Andor (Mass Market Paperback)
This book deserves 3 and half but im giving it 4 as it definatly doesnt deserve a 3.
Well as you know this book is split up into two parts the cardassia story and the andor story so ill review both seperatly.
I read the cardassia story looking forward to learning more aout garak the enigmatic cardassian tailor, and although he did not have a huge role to play in the story, una mc cormick clearly knows her man, as the garak in this story is one of the truest portrayals of this character in all his mistique.
The story itself was refreshingly enough not overly dramatic and instead focused on the dynamics of the characters interactions. however for all its high-points the book still leaves you feeling that there could have been more, actually alot more, but instead you still feel hungry afterward.
The andor book follows a simelar vein of being a character driven story but where as with the cardassia book you did not need to be a follower of the relaunch series to enjoy it, it is almost a prerequsite to have read some if not all of the relaunch books (especially mission gamma 1-4) to get a firm grip of this story.
It takes events involving the local resident andorian shar to a new level, and any followers of the books who have been impressed with the creation of this character will love this book. On top of this is one of the most vivid descriptions of a planet ever written. Hether Jarmin creates from scratch a world which seems to have existed for an etenity and makes you want to go visit there tomorrow. The story itself interestnig and engaging while moving at a good pace, plenty of possibilities and suprises in store. And for anyone who like myself get muddled up with the andorian names and terms look to the back for a glossery, which i unfortunatly didnt find till finishing the book.
So worth buying? If you are a fan of the series absolutely, if you have just a passing intrest borrow or rent it first to be sure. I definaly feel i got my monies worth and was glad to read it hope others will feel the same.
