    1. I remember being excited about the release of the first hard-back DS9 book, and I remember being sorely disappointed by it. Rereading it--more carefully this time--many years later, I don't think my view has changed much.The initial techno-gizmo premise seems pretty interesting, but toward the end, when the curtain is thrown back to reveal the great and powerful Oz, I'm still not sure Oz is all he could have been. It seems the author dropped hints that Bad Guy Numero Uno is perhaps some enduring [...]


    2. I had been aware of the prevailing opinion of this book, which is along the lines of "This book is why the DS9 Hardcover series ended after one book." When I picked it up used a few years back, I was not motivated to read it right away for that very reason. But in my grand tour of reading all the Star Trek hardcover novels, this book finally came due. So I read it. I must say, I honestly agree with the opinion. The book was Dickensesque in verbosity, but while that worked for Charles Dickens it [...]



    3. A dark tale on DS9. Kind of was annoyed how certain solutions which should have presented themselves were not tried and how Kira started out being fairly central to the narrative was put to the side for the last 1/3 of the book. The book had a great villain but their aspirations and abilities were a little tricky to understand in the end. Wanted to like this book more but in the end I couldn't as I don't think I got it which could be my fault


    4. At first I really didn't like it. From Jake's Tom Sawyer-esque holodeck world to yet another murder for Odo to ferret out this book actually started to grow on me. I understand that this was the first Deep Space Nine Hardcover, and I believe last as the general community regards it as a flop. While the characterization is a bit off and a few of the characters just fall a bit flat. Not to mention a small amount of canon is ignored. Such as Jadzia deliberately communicating with her symbiont and, [...]


    5. Deep Space Nine is well-known for being the darkest Trek, and that legacy follows it - and is expanded upon - in its fiction. Unfortunately, themes handled deftly on the show seem exaggerated in the books, including this one.Warped starts off as yet another DS9 murder mystery. Someone is corrupting the holosystem, adding elements of torture and death to the programs and driving its users to madness and murder. As the station crew investigates, they uncover what I think is the most interesting co [...]


    6. It's nothing if not ambitious, and it's nowhere near as bad as its reputationbut it is a mess. Why have a sudden coup on Bajor move so unrealistically fast, considering how well the long build-up to the actual coup works in the lead up to the season two opening trilogy? Why no mention of either the Prophets or Sisko's role as the Emissary? The story is begging for it, and could have been tied up so neatly under those bannerswhy ignore it for something far more generic in its mysticism? And why o [...]


    7. First, Warped is way too long. The narrative - the compelling pieces - doesn't have the chops to carry almost 350 pages. It meanders, wanders and decides to get into such expository depth the reader ends up not caring about anything going on.Second, each character, more or less, has long monologues in which they drop all sorts of exposition. No one, aside from Cardassians, speak this way in the Trek universe. These monologues are boring, with little flair. They are usually tech in nature, with d [...]


    8. I have read a lot of Star Trek books and was disappointed with Warped. I know that Deep Space Nine is the darkest of the franchise, but this book, at least the part I read, was too dark for me. I didn't get much past page 13, after the part about Jake,"the other boy" and the knife I lost all desire to read further. I do enjoy a good murder mystery, but this just creeped me out.


    9. A dark story, full of violence. But guess what, Odo investigates a series of murders, again. What is it with DS9 books and murders? There is more to the storyline than that with political problems on Bajor and holodecks not acting how they should. A rreadable story but I can't imagine it being made into a tv episode, there would be too many complaints about the violence.


    10. First half of the book was great. Middle was Ok. The last 50 pagesyou have to be kidding me?? It read like bad fan fiction. By far, the worst book in the series so far and one of the worst books I've read in a long time. Do yourself a favor and just skip this one.


    11. This book is not for the casual reader. It is an incredibly complex dark novel that for me was way too metaphysical/psychological. I'm giving it four stars because, although I didn't completely enjoy it, I do recognize that it is really well written and thought out.


    12. Not great. Most of the characters came out right, but the story itself just wasn't very compelling. It tried to be this deep thing about the blurry line between reality and illusion but it just didn't measure up to other, similar messages found in sci fi.



    13. This book was a little bit odd. I'm still not entirely sure what the plot was, but for me it was worth the price of admission to hear Rene Auberjonois doing impressions of Quark and Bashir.




    14. A fast but not that great read. VR stories always have some problems for me. The political stuff with Bajor making deal with Cardassia didn't make a lot of sense. I love DS9 though.
