star trek a stitch in time a good book?

Hi I just finished with the book q squared (which I enjoyed a lot) and I was wondering if the book a stitch in time is any good. I have heard quite a few people on here mention it but I was wondering if i was as good as books like the destiny series, q in law, q squared, and imzadi which i all enjoyed a lot.

It is regarded quite well by people around here. I think it is one of the better Trek books ever.

And it isn't even ghost-written - Andrew Robinson wrote every line himself.

It is one of my favorite TrekLit reads. I've read that book at least a dozen times.

Stitch is an outstanding book...just don't expect something as "big" as Destiny or the Q books.

I thought it was absolutely amazing. One of the best books of any type I have ever read.

It's an excellent novel, but understand that it is the autobiography of Elim Garak. So it's a very intimate, psychological novel.

I'm reading it right now, and I love it. I don't want it to end. Ever.

Big ups to Andrew Robinson. Not only does he play an awesome Cardassian, he writes an awesome biography of one, too.
