Another really nice book by Alastair Reynolds. I have really enjoyed his imagination, love of science and "science fictioneering" and have checked out most of what he has out there. Clearly a mind that loves the forum of sci fi. Hope he continues on with his work.
This is absolutely one of his best novels by far.
The book presents several very interesting and unfolding scenarios happening at the same time, but the different stories interweave in a very satisfying manner. The whole book is believable and compelling as a piece of Science Fiction, and the characters of many of the people are reasonably strong and convincing. My only (minor) complaint is that there are a few points in the story where a certain decisive moment is cut short or passed over in the action and the reader is left to assume what might have occurred and must fill in the blanks for himself. But as usual with Alastair Reynolds, The Prefect is a most satisfying read.
Enjoyable listen! The book is written well and I really liked the narrator!
