I love the Torchwood series, I love the stories, I love the characters, I love it all! So I bought this book along with the two others in the series - wow what a disappointment!! The story was not in the exciting, pacey vein of the TV shows, the writing seems so simple that it is hard to read. It doesn't flow at all. The characters have been simplified and certain traits exaggerated - in the TV show the characters are much more complex than the one dimensional people in the book.

My bag of books will not contain classics or Booker nominated fare - it will contain generic crime novels and worst of all the tie in novels. To heap even more shame onto my purchases I have been known to buy tie in novels for shows and films I have never even watched. Why do I do this to myself? Probably because these books are such easy reads that I can get them finished Read the complete review
