4.0 out of 5 stars Not as bad as people say 17 May 2001
By A Customer
Although this book has recieved a fair amount of criticism, I dont think that there is anything wrong with it. In fact I think it is downright brilliant. Some readers have commented that it is a very depressing novel. I have to agree with them. yes, it is a very depressing novel, nothing nice happens and quite a lot of people end up dying in very horrible ways. But not all DW books have to be happy in nature. I think the early part of the novel is very creepy especially the part where the Kusks are hunting the doctor and one of the technicians through the base. The technician meets with a very grisly end when the Kusks catch up with him. In fact, most people in this novel meet with a very grisly end when the Kusks catch up with them. But it's that depressing and sad nature witch i think makes this book stand out from the rest. However, one problem is the ending. Mr Collier seems to think that copious amounts of technobabble at the climax is a suitable way to tie up all the strands of the plot. It isn't. But i still enjoyed this. Dont get this book if you're faint hearted as the violence in some places is quite extreme. But if you are a die hard DW fan like me, then get it now. On the whole, very enjoyable.

1.0 out of 5 stars Depressing 22 Dec 1999
By A Customer
This is a great DW book if you enjoy seeing your favorite characters put through a ringer and seeing how far you can stretch torture. I have to wonder at the point of this story. What is the message the author was trying to convey?
The Doctor and Sam land on a moonbase over a planet chopped up into different time zones. There's a horrible temporal leakage that's getting worse and of course the Doctor HAS to get involved. The bad part comes once Sam gets seperated from the Doctor and ends up on the dying planet in a Mad Max-type setting. It's horrible.
I don't believe your normal 17 year old schoolgirl could survive all that. Not only that, but the character of the Doctor was off. Made the book that much harder to believe in. There is not a happy ending either, and I think that is my problem here - I prefer a happy ending with all the loose ends being tied up.
The creatures were fasinating and one wishes they could have been explored further. Maybe in another book some day. This was the most violent DW book I have ever read. Yuck! Gentle reader, save your money unless, like me, you have to have the entire set!

2.0 out of 5 stars A good idea but confusing and needlessly bleak 12 Aug 2000
By A Customer
Wow!, I thought, just my kind of thing; time quirks. The quirk in this case is little patches of time runing differently, and there are all manner of weird things going on, most of all some kind of leak which the Doctor has to stop or something... I personally found it all rather confusing, what with these strange (and atrange doesn't necessarily mean bad) aliens who I could never quite fully believe in, and then the standard separation between Doctor and companion.
It's a very depressing book, lots of horrible thngs happen and it all looks like it's going to turn out horribly, and indeed all is not well at the end of the book. However, that's to be understood as it is, after all, part one of four of this Sam-is-lost arc, the rest of which is absolutely brilliant [Legacy of the Daleks is next, then Dreamstone Moon, but Seeing I, next, is top!], and so whilst not being a brilliant novel, it serves a purpose.
