Fiction. Science Fiction. HTML:An unique and intense tale following Elim Garak as he attempts to stitch the ravaged society of Cardassia back together.
For nearly a decade Garak has longed for just one thing??to go home. Exiled on a space station, surrounded by aliens who loathe and distrust him, going back to Cardassia has been Garak's one dream. Now, finally, he is home. But home is a world whose landscape is filled with death and destruction. Desperation and dust are constant companions and luxury is a glass of clean water and a warm place to sleep.

Ironically, it is a letter from one of the aliens on that space station, Dr. Julian Bashir, that inspires Garak to look at the fabric of his life. Elim Garak has been a student, a gardener, a spy, an exile, a tailor, even a liberator. It is a life that was charted by the forces of Cardassian society with very little understanding of the person, and even less compassion.

But it is the tailor that understands who Elim Garak was, and what he could be. It is the tailor who sees the ruined fabric of Cardassia, and who knows how to bring this ravaged society back together. This is strange, because a tailor is the one thing Garak never wanted to be. But it is the tailor whom both Cardassia and Elim Garak need. It is the tailor who can put the pieces together, who can take a stitch in ti

As the actor who played Garak on DS9, I had no doubt that Andrew Robinson would have deep insight into the character. But what I wasn't sure about was how good a writer he would be. I'm pleased to report, he is quite good. Granted, the book will only appeal to those who are fans of the show. But for those who are, I encourage you to pick this one up. ( )

If you aren't a big Star Trek fan or already familiar with DS9, then this is not a great choice. But if you've watched DS9 and wanted to know more about Garak, this is a very well done and detailed dive into Garak's pre and post-DS9 life. The audiobook is also read by the man himself and he does an excellent job. ( )

This book just blew me away. Robinson, knowing his character so well, gives us both a compelling story and a penetrating character sketch. And he's a great writer to boot. If you have even the slightest interested in DS9, this is a must read. ( )

You don't expect actors to write with such delightful nuance and nerdiness at the same time. ( )

Wow, what a pleasant surprise. Tore through this one in a day (ok, the power was out all day, so that helped.)

Obviously it references events from throughout the DS9 series, but the story is well written, and speaks exactly like Garak would sound... no surprise, considering the author!

Probably the best Trek related novel I've yet read. ( )
