Format: Hardcover
Even though the idea of the voracious craw, an unstoppable eating machine, is a good one and could have made for an interesting story, most of the book feels underdeveloped and repetetive. The members of the "family in distress" come across as cardbord characters and even though one crisis follows another the plot is boring and predictable. I've read most of the New Who - novels but this is the first one I found so disappointing I only skimmed through at the end.

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Lizzie Boleyn on 28 Oct 2007
Format: Hardcover
The basic premise of this story is fascinating, and there are some wonderfully graphic descriptions, but while Barbara, Toaster and Domovoi are genuinely well-written, the other main "guest cast" are more or less cardboard cut-outs, including the boy I think I was supposed to empathise with. What was supposed to be a revelation about the woman, too, was obvious to me from her first appearance.

The Doctor and Martha are OK, but overall, I found Sick Building one of the more forgettable additions to the Doctor Who range

By Book Critic TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 21 Feb 2012
Format: Hardcover
Ten's voice and manic, gurning energy is absolutely spot on in this book. I thought I'd get that observation out of the way first because I hate to be negative but it's the only good thing I have to say about Sick Building.

Paul Magrs has long been my favourite writer of Eight-Doctor novels and his name on the cover was what encouraged me to branch out and try a new-Who novel. This is the first time I've read a book based on the new series so I'm not sure whether it's a lapse in Paul Magrs hitherto magnificent form or the range as a whole, but Sick Building - a Ten and Martha novel set on a planet inhabited only by one super-rich family and their robots - is so terribly simplistic and childish in tone it made me cringe from start to finish.

I don't know if there's a conscious decision behind this, to write the range of Doctor Who books as children's lit, or if it's something specific to this title but gosh golly, if it's typical, I doubt I'll be reading any more. As someone who loved the EDA and PDA's, the change of gear is terribly grating.

I do love Paul Magrs writing and was looking forward to a new Who novel from him, but this was a real disappointment.

Format: Hardcover
This book stands out from the series because of the originality of the monsters. The monster the Doctor was intending to deal with is continent sized, and reminiscent of the sand worms in Dune. The other monsters are the household objects that the mad genius has imbued with intelligence. They are full of personality, well used in the story and the idea of them kept me chuckling to the end.The sun bed, vacuum cleaners and living fireplace were especially notable, and despite a bit of a sudden ending left me pleased that I had read the book.
