Description

Award winning sci-fi writer Michael Moorcock writes a thrilling all-new adventure featuring the 11th Doctor and Amy.

There are dark tides running through the universe - so strong they swallow light and threaten Captain Cornelius's familiar existence; if unchecked they will absorb the whole of Creation. But for now he tracks into the solar winds, searching for the only being he acknowledges as his peer: who is known simply as 'the Doctor'.

Maddeningly Verbose

I was excited by the other reviews and a keen fan of the tv series but I am struggling to wade through this adjective-laden prose. It took 20 minutes this morning just to describe the ship pulling into dock! The author's compulsion to add alien detail has crowded out action and engagement with characters like an infestation of Silburian Slug Worms from the Obellian Galaxy.

A Steaming Pile

I love Dr. Who, but this was simply awful. Moorcock demonstrates a complete lack of understanding of the character he is writing. The Doctor should jump out of every scene he is in and dominate the action. In this book you hardly realize he is there, squeezed among the ridiculous characters with confusing motivations. The story seems to have been written for an entirely different hero, with the Dr. Who elements thrown hastily in at the last moment.
The narration was also shocking. Mantle tries to create different voices and accents for his characters, but ends up giving us aural caricatures. The falsetto Scots used to indicate Amy's occasional presence made me want to throw my headphones in the nearest fireplace.

Dr. Who fans be warned. This is not what you want. Stay away!

It took a while to draw me in

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I've been a Doctor Who fan for nearly 30 years.

It took me two tries to get through this book. After listening to around 30 minutes, I gave up and then thought - boring, but then when I went back and listened again to find that the story drew me in.

This was not the doctor that I was used to and it took me a little while to warm to him in written form.

As far as I'm concerned this book is well worth the read

Sucked so hard I couldn't listen to it all.

If you put a book of eccentric British terms together in a blender and mixed them with some bad story telling and then had the result read out by one of the worse voice talents to read an Audiobook that I have heard, this is what you would end up with. It was crap and try as I might, I could not get through it. Bad character voices, mixed with a shocking story make this the worse purchase I have made from Audible to date. I hated it. I did not feel the presence of the Doctor in it for even one second. It could have been anyone.
