There is a dark tone that underpins the first half of `Prelude' that makes it an effective thriller, however, as the book progresses it becomes more bogged down with the internal politics of funding and less interesting. By the end there is a thrilling set piece, but also an auditing process. They don't really gel well together. McConnell certainly knows their stuff when it comes to the characters involved, both Sam and Al are well developed. It was also interesting to get to know Ziggy a little more and the facility that houses him. However, this is the type of stuff that will only appeal to strong fans of the show, a journeyman reader will just be a little bored with seemingly inane details.
I sit somewhere between these two camps, the book was thrilling as I am a fan, but I also found it a little bland in places. The first half promises a thrill ride with potential time travelling shenanigans, but in the end it is more about bureaucracy than string theory.
I picked the book up second-hand out of curiosity, and found it well-written, giving good insights into Sam’s mind and confusion as he finds himself in a situation totally unfamiliar to him – and yet clearly well-known by those around him.
Probably not of much interest to anyone other than fans of the TV series, however.
