Listener Opinions

    " Other than Jack being quite moody and making long reflections, even going downright philosophical (on variations of apples!) though not to much effect to solving the problem at hand at the beginning of the book and not being that arrogantly confident and flippant Jack we know at all, oh and Owen opening his heart all of a sudden to a girl held under observation in the Hub, sharing a lot about himself that genuinely and sincerely under those circumstances does not make sense to me at all, book is well written on the action side, not much humor like in Torchwood: Border Princesbut a nice regular episode's worth of Torchwood taste. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jacqui | 2/17/2014

    " Reading this book was kind of like reading bad fan-fiction. It's early in the series, so I'll give the author the benefit of the doubt in case they ever try to write again. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Angie | 2/13/2014

    " I liked this one alot and it had a lot more action~ "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 James | 2/8/2014

    " It was okay. Too Owen centered for me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Patty | 2/7/2014

    " Maybe it was the cold medicine I was taking at the time, but this story felt kind of flat to me. It was good to see more of Rhys than we often do in the TV show, and the characters were well-executed, but I could not get myself to care much about the aliens in the diet center despite the gut-wrenching (literally) and gory attempts at suspense. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ann Thomas | 1/26/2014

    " As good as Another Life. Really enjoyed, as a fan of the TV series. A diet pill that is eating people alive, and an alien device that magnifies emotions. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura (ME) | 1/18/2014

    " Really quick, entertaining read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shelley | 1/14/2014

    " I hate the editing - they took out all the fun lines. But Burn is incredibly talented and I loved listening to him read it, anyway. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Salamander-sai | 12/19/2013

    " Sort of like reading fanfiction, only slightly worse cos there were so many repetitive phrases used! I'll stick with the fanfic from now on, methinks. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amy | 12/9/2013

    " I found this to be the best-written of the Torchwood books so far. The author really captured the characters well and had a great level of sarcastic humor. It worked nicely for a Torchwood fix between shows. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Knottybear Bonney | 11/22/2013

    " Better than "Another Life", but still best for people who love the show already. The tale retold here is a Torchwood spin on an old gross-out anecdote told by many a biology teacher... but I won't spoil the fun for you. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kayleigh | 10/30/2013

    " Dragged a little, and the dialogue didn't feel natural, but it could have been worse. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sato | 10/19/2013

    " After a long break I finally came to the end of the audiobook. I really loved the story and Burn Gorman's brilliant narration, but sadly enough I'm so poor at listening that I couldn't enjoy the whole story in detail. I will have to read the book version sometime. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rachel | 10/11/2013

    " This is the first Torchwood book I've read, and I wasn't sure what to expect with regards to quality. But I was pleased with it. It was basically like an extra episode, pretty good quality. I think I will read more! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Caroline | 5/12/2013

    " Satisfyingly stupid, with a pinch of baffling alien technology, a dash of questionable medical ethics, and gallons of blood. Overtones of troubled relationships, rotating interior monologues, and the dashing, mysterious American hero to bail everybody out. Stir briefly; mixture will still be lumpy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Del de la Mare | 8/12/2012

    " Well written book, perhaps a little slow paced compared to the first two in the series. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rachael | 4/24/2012

    " I found it dragged a little. It was a well-thought out plot concept, but the writer's style just didn't appeal to me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Holly O | 2/6/2012

    " Novels based on TV shows are iffy, but this one is fun. It's most fun for its ongoing snipping at Owen. I'm not crazy about Owen, so I cracked up every time he got insulted. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alesia | 9/27/2011

    " Deliciously gory. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dahlia | 9/2/2011

    " 3.5/5. It was much better than The Twilight Streets. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy | 6/25/2009

    " An interesting concept, but then the episode of Doctor Who called "Partners in Crime" was a little bit similar. I like how much Rhys is in this novel :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Todd | 2/24/2009

    " This was a definite Torchwood novel - I could easily envision it as I read the story. Another author who has the characters down pat. "
