Strongly recommended to those familiar with the original TV series.

For any readers who are unfamiliar with the show, this may be of limited interest. It focuses on the set up of the Quantum Leap project, and the difficulties it runs into. It doesn't delve into technical or political details and so is an easy to read, but without any real depth.

The connection between Sam and Al is the best written, with most other characters appearing slightly flat. Nevertheless by getting more of a view into the minds of these two leads, fans of the series should enjoy the extra insight.… (mere)

This was an entertaining book. I found the character descriptions a bit amusing. I've watched the TV series, so much of the description was unnecessary for me, but I understand that not everyone watches the series. I probably will not read more Stargate books, as I enjoy the series more than the books.

This is not a book review, this is a book demand. If you are a fan of the Quantum Leap television series then you must read this. Do not be confused, Prelude is the 4th book in the multi-author QL series, but whatever. I make no claims against the others, but i bet they are decent or there wouldn't be so many of them.. Or perhaps they are "Crappy Good". I won't bother with a full review, but I do feel that a reblurb of the novel summary is warranted ;)

New Synopsis:
You know how it ends, socially awkward Beckett steps into the Quantum Leap system and his consciousness is transported haphazardly to the past. He cannot remember anything and travels time perpetually looking for a way to get back home.

This gives you the back story, the politics, the subterfuge and grandstanding. This pieces together a firm picture of what happened before, and who Beckett was before losing his memory and becoming the worldly man he is now. Wanted to know about how Ziggy works, how he got his name? Why DOES Al wear all those horrendously terrible clothes?

Just read the book already.. The fact that you are even looking at it means you deserve to treat yourself to it. You picked this up, now go pay the average $1.99 used paperback price and geek out. it's only a buck ninety-nine.. Heck, you might even be the lucky person who got the tattered $.99 cent copy!

Super fans pay attention to the foreword and ignore the minor inconsistencies
Publisher description:
An all-new Quantum Leap adventure, based on the smash hit TV series, gives readers the "beginning" of the story. Dr. Sam Beckett and Admiral Al Calavicci begin an experiment called Project Quantum Leap and discover the secret of time travel via computer. But someone wants to sabotage Quantum Leap before it starts.

Ashley McConnell’s Stargate SG-1 adapts series co-creators Jonathan Glassner and Brad Wright’s script for the Stargate SG-1 pilot episode, “Children of the Gods.” The story picks up one year after Roland Emmerich and Dean Devlin’s film, with the Goa’uld Apophis coming to Earth and abducting an Air Force officer. General Hammond brings Colonel Jack O’Neill to the Cheyenne Mountain Complex to question him on details of his mission to Abydos. O’Neill confirms the death of Ra, but admits that he didn’t destroy the gate on the other side. A team composed of O’Neill, Charles Kawalsky, and Louis Ferretti from the original mission, along with Captain Samantha Carter, goes through to investigate and get Daniel Jackson’s assistance. They learn that the stargate can go to thousands of worlds, but the revelation is dampened by Apophis’ arrival and abduction of Daniel’s wife, Sha’re, and her brother Skaara. The team takes Daniel back to Earth, where they plan a mission to Apophis’ world of Chulak. There, they learn that Apophis chose Sha’re as a host for his wife and Skaara as a host for his offspring. The team partners with Teal’c, a Jaffa guard who defects from Apophis, in order to escape from Chulak. Back on Earth, with a new understanding of the threat that faces them, they plan for the future. McConnell’s adaptation faithfully translates the original script to the book medium, adding some insights into character’s perspectives, but without changing as much as Stephen Molstad did in his adaptation of the original film. Fans of the series looking to collect the novels will find this a good start, though many of the books, including those by McConnell, have since gone beyond adaptations of specific episodes.… (mere)
