Doctor Who: Harvest of Time
Doctor Who: Harvest of Time
by Alastair Reynolds
Edition: Hardcover
Price: 11.89

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous!, 23 Jun 2013
I have no idea if this is true or not but I can imagine Alaistair Reynolds sitting as a boy watching Pertwee being the doctor. He has encapsulated that sheer child like joy along with his own personal blend of genius for writing. Add to that the exceptional crystal clear accurate characterisation of the characters of the time, and hey presto, you end up with a fabulous book that's hard to put down down.....Any fan who remembers the Pertwee era will be in a nostalgic heaven, but anyone unfamiliar with the classic Who will still find a gem of a book, and I can think of no better place to be introduced and fall in love with the classic Doctor.

4.0 out of 5 stars A decent book in a Fantastic Series, 3 Aug 2010
This is book 7 in a series and continues on immediately after World Binder. It may be an obvious statement but this is not a good place to start the Runelord series, partly because it is book 7 but mostly because this story relies heavily on the characters and locations presented in the previous 6 books. Without the familiarity of the characters, locations, allegiances, magic systems and in many cases family connections I think perhaps the new reader could find himself/herself a little bemused.

Much of this book is concerned with shuffling the characters, and various allies / enemies from place to place. This is quite probably a necessary book in the sequence and so perhaps lacks some of the magical qualities of the previous books, but does (I hope) set up the next book in the series to be a fantastic scintelating continuation, reminiscent of the previously well written, memorable, books in this series.

I can't wait for the next one !
