In My Own Words:
I like to write. and I have discovered in recent years that I'm quite good at reviewing, or so people tell me. And amazon provides an ideal outlet for this. I've read pretty much every doctor who novel ever written and heard nearly all the audios, so I'm a particular authority on those. And I think spongebob squarepants is one of the funniest cartoon shows ever. I try to make my reviews helpful ev… Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars Trickster dreams, 14 Sep 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
An urban fantasy novel for young adult readers. Ideal age would be eleven and up.

It's the first in a series. It does feel pretty much self contained and have some closure at the end. But also leaves a few things open, setting up further stories.

It runs for three hundred and twenty pages. It's divided into twenty two chapters, plus a prologue and an epilogue.

Set in Dublin, the main character is twelve year old Arthur Quinn. He and his father have just moved to the city so the latter can work on building the metro system. Arthur has all the usual issues of moving home and going to a new school and making new friends that a boy of his age often has to… Read more

It's suitable for readers of all ages, although there are a couple of mildly gory moments.

This breaks the format slightly of the usual books in this range, in that it's narrated In the first person by one of the supporting characters. A man known as the Governor. Who is in charge of a secure prison for very dangerous criminals on a remote asteroid.

A new inmate is prisoner 428. A man who calls himself the Doctor. Who… Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars Hunting parties, 8 Sep 2014
Latest Doctor Who audio story to feature Tom Baker as the Doctor and Louise Jameson as Leela. This is the last in the current run of them. The story does stand pretty much on it's own, and casual listeners should be able to get into it quite easily without having heard any of the preceding ones.

The story is a two parter, and complete on a single cd. The episodes run twenty five and twenty seven minutes in length respectively [Approx.]

It sees the TARDIS land on the planet Garros. A jungle world, where the Solar Knights, the elite military defenders of the solar system, are enjoying a little sport. Hunting the local beasts.

Knights commander Saraton is an… Read more
