Book Description

2 April 2007 Torchwood
John Barrowman reads this thrilling story of murder, mutilation and monsters. Thick black clouds are blotting out the skies over Cardiff. As twenty-four inches of rain fall in twenty-four hours, the city centre's drainage system collapses. The capital's homeless are being murdered, their mutilated bodies left lying in the soaked streets around the Blaidd Drwg nuclear facility. Tracked down by Torchwood, the killer calmly drops eight storeys to his death. But the killings don't stop. Their investigations lead Jack Harkness, Gwen Cooper and Toshiko Sato to a monster in a bathroom, a mystery at an army base, and a hunt for stolen nuclear fuel rods. Meanwhile, Owen Harper goes missing from the Hub, when a game in Second Reality leads him to an old girlfriend...Something is coming, forcing its way through the Rift, straight into Cardiff Bay. Read by John Barrowman, who plays Captain Jack Harkness, this gripping adventure features Gwen Cooper, Owen Harper, Toshiko Sato and Ianto Jones, as played by Eve Myles, Burn Gorman, Naoko Mori and Gareth David-Lloyd in the hit series from BBC Television. It contains adult themes and language.

4.0 out of 5 stars Just what the Doctor would order!!!! 5 Feb 2008
By Glenn Cook HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
If you're a fan then I recommend this CD. Barrowman for my mind does a fine job of his telling on this abridged version of the book. Sure as previous reviewers say it's Torchwood therefore predictable in plot but what do they expect East Enders?? What you see is what you get a typical Torchwood, aliens thru' the rift in Cardiff adventure. And just what the Doctor (!) would order! Or rather that should be what you hear is what you get. Barrowman does a great job at reading (It is a talking book for goodness sake previous reviewer! Full cast indeed!) And is great for people like me that enjoy a good story, and a well told Torchwood one but haven't got time to read the book! It's a fine sit down /relax and imagine you're there type tale and well it's great entertainment!! It's not war and Peace, it's not Tolstoy but Torchwood/Barrowman/entertainment and for around seven quid and that's not all bad is it??

5.0 out of 5 stars Torchwood: Another Life Audio 5 Jun 2014
By Debs
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Having heard there was an audio version to the book I knew I had to own it. And this time narrated by John Barrowman, well, all the more reason to hear his narration to another brilliant novel by Anghelides. There was another reason. I wanted to hear John say words of the style of shoes by one particular character in the story and he didn't disappoint.

Although, unlike other cast members of Torchwood who add in clear distinct differences to their accent, John remains American all the way through, it doesn't draw you away from the story. John appears to come into his own after coming into battle with the creature in the bathtub, then you begin to hear more Jack Harkness coming into play.

I wanted to hear what John sounded like when he read audios. I wasn't disappointed, although it would have been interesting to hear him speak in different accents like the other cast members do, aside from Tom Price that is.

But don't let that put you off. The story is fantastic and he punctuates the line regarding the shoes perfectly well. Just make sure you don't have any small children or prudish friends and family in the car with you at that moment...

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous story 4 Dec 2010
By Ruthie
Format:Audio CD
Good fun, I listened to CD one then had to go out, couldn't wait to get back to listen to the second CD. Fabulous story line with a wonderful narrator. If you like John Barrowman he carries the story through very well and keeps the audience interested and wanting to know where it is going next.

I have 4 Torchwood CDs, the other 3 including the full cast so it was the first time I have chosen a single narration CD but it's just as good, and fully enjoyable.

I loved it, and have listened to it several times since!
