This is the story of Dr. I could see it both ways - it was annoying to me mostly because I can't slap a fictional character. What it does do well is fill in some of the holes about the setting and background that the first book only really alludes to. And yet I do not feel like my time reading this story were wasted - rather an impressive achievement if you ask me a self contained story which results in me feeling I know less than when I started Well I guess I cannot put it off any longer time to find those books! Nice short prequel story to the series. This one brings him to the fore and illuminates his character.
