I only have a handful of Sci-Fi to rank it with and I would put this at about the mid point... if I could ignore the narration, I could give it better marks.
The narration was the sticking point for me on this audiobook. Lee gives very little life to most of the characters and his accent lends itself to about two-three variations. His pauses between between words became predictable and were kept between characters. It really became annoying.
Annoyance at times... but again, due to the narration. Not sure why people enjoy Lee so much. But I have not heard any of his other work... maybe it is just me.
The Prefect is a great sci-fi story. The tech is really inventive. The plot is unique. Some of the character interaction is a little bit unbelievable and at times brings what should be a climatic pace down to a crawl. I attribute this partly to the narration.
Interesting plot twists.
Joe Ledgers new companion.
Way too many to list.
There are several points were Ledger and crew just click together. Porter is fantastic.
Ledger's character is a bit abrasive at first (first book) but Ray Porter does such a fantastic job (with all the characters) that I am sure that was the author's intent. Ledger grows on you very quickly and by the third book, you want to have a beer with the guy. Great sci-fi/cop crossover.
