This year's doctor who quick reads novel. If you've not heard of quick reads, then a brief word of explanation. every year several very short books - about one hundred pages of short chapters and large print - are issued on national quick reads day. the aim of these is to get those who don't normally read to try it. since they're short and easy reads they're good things to try if you don't usually have the time or inclination for anything longer or more challenging.

but that doesn't mean those who do can't enjoy them as well.

the range is now in it's fourth year and a doctor who book has been included in the range every year.

this one involves the doctor arriving at a sports training facility to find there have been several mysterious deaths there. he befriends some of the students at the place and they find that it has been taken over by sontarans, aliens familiar to anyone who saw the 2008 season of the show on tv. the sontarans put the doctor and the students through some dangerous tests. can they survive? and what is the sontarans true purpose in being there?

This is definitely a book you can get into quickly and the prose is clear enough such that you won't find it a difficult read. story wise it's not bad. the supporting characters do have a reasonable amount of depth to them, and the plot does develop nicely. There are a few decent revelations to come along the way.

Nothing special, but if you want a good quick read, or a good quick doctor who story, or both, then it's well worth getting.

The latest in the 'quick reads' series, and like its predecessors, is a fast pacing book which can be easily read in a day or as an aide to reading, the latter being primarily the reason for this series of books.
The Doctor is the Doctor, the Sontarans are the Sontarans and the supporting cast are just that - there for support and someone for the Doctor to talk to and show off his cleverness and knowledge.
There is no real depth to the story - in fact the swimming pool mentioned in the text probably has more depth - but the short chapters mean you can read a chapter, go away for half an hour, come back and read another chapter and keep the same pace throughout the day, reading the final chapter just before turning out the light at bedtime. Alternatively, the book can be read to children at bedtime and so send them off into the dreamland worlds of Doctor Who - just make sure they know there is a sofa near by for them to hide behind, if need be!
All in all, a book well worth the money, and a fun read to boot!
Now, where did I put that sonic screwdriver...

B.A.S.E..British Academy Of Sporting Exellence.When students compeat to be the best..but strange deaths are happening there as The Doctor discovers..Students have been electocuted and there is the feeling of mistrust and fear..made all the worse when The Sontarans make an appearance..The Doctor and the students are forced the take part in the deadly Sontaran games..but The Doctor is helped by Emma..who avoids capture..but she is very different from the other students..What a wonderful and brilliant story..very similar to the TV story The Sontaran Stratigum/The Poison Sky..only in this The Doctor is on his own...The pace of the story was excellent with the chapter endings really wanting you to read on to what happens next..There are great comical moments and great one liners from The Doctor..and the cleaver twist to the whole story is Emma..The Sontaran are very dangerious thoughout...making for a must read for all Doctor Who fans.

This was an ok read. I found the language was very simplistic but that was intentional because it is in the quick read initiative to get people reading. I was not bothered by that because the story was good although it did not have a lot of depth. The only thing that bothered me was the portrayal of the Doctor, he seemed to be really weak and didn't have a clue on how to solve the situation. The supporting characters seemed to have a bigger role in trying to defeat the aliens and the Doctor was unsure. This would not be bad if the book was unconnected to anything, but the book is written tto complement the tv programme and I felt that it contradicted the Doctors personality and strengths on the programme.

This was really disappointing. I read another Doctor Who title by the same author which was definitely a 5 star, but this only scraped two because of the price.

Stilted writing with only one good twist and it really doesn't slot into the genre. A lot of out of character moments and plots.

according to me this is the worst doctor who quick read so far, it doesn't contain much action and the story was verry predictable, i think the sontarans have had a good run, but it's time for them to die out and hopefully they can be replaced by other, cooler species like the ice warriors

In my role as a learning disability support worker I bought this book for a client of mine with a frontal lobe brain injury. The simplified syntax and vocabulary of the book helped him to keep him engaged with the narrative flow of the story, and so to persist with the task of reading.
