5.0 out of 5 stars Another great story, 29 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
You can't really go wrong with the Dr Who audio books. The stories are always interesting and this one in particular had some funny moments with the Dodo adopted by Martha. Definitely recommend.

3.0 out of 5 stars Doctor Who The Price of Paradise, 15 April 2013
Laylora, the Paradise Planet. A world of breath-taking beauty, where peace-loving aboriginals live in harmony with their environment. Or do they? The Doctor and Rose arrive to find that the once-perfect eco-system is showing signs of failing. The paradise planet has become a death trap as terrifying creatures from ancient legends appear and stalk the land Is there a connection between the human explorers who have crash-landed and the savage monsters?

What secret lies at the heart of the natives ancient ceremonies? And what price might one human have to pay to save the only home he has ever known? When a planet itself becomes sick, can there be a cure? The Doctor and Rose find themselves in a race against time to find out.

Featuring the Doctor and Rose as played by David Tennant and Billie Piper in the hit series from BBC Television.

5.0 out of 5 stars Freema's reading makes this story even better...., 13 Nov 2007
The Last Dodo: is at last a great story from Jaci Rayner, and is thoroughly enjoyable and has a new fresh setting and imaginative twists and turns all along the way. I do have just the book of this, and even thought he book is the full story, theres just something about listening to Freema Agyeman reading this story that makes this book and even bigger hit. I think she has such a great speaking voice, so soft and easy to hear, not over the top with different voices. Shes great. She should have done the lot of these three stories with Martha in my opinion, but at least she did one. Thats better than nothing! A brilliant buy. And for once the bits left out on the audio arent the essential bits anyway, so its no real loss. In fact, as i said, with Freema its a big gain...

3.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining and simple but an odd premise, 7 Oct 2009
By 
Mr. M. Jones "Jonesmz" (Chester, England) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
This is a fairly good book, with plenty of action, locations that are quite simple and easy to visualise, a limited group of characters making it easier to follow the action, and an intriguing mystery that only gets explained fully at the end. I felt a bit let down by the basic premise, that a planet has sentience. It became an accepted premise that led to the action, but was never really explained, but if you suspend your imagination about that, it was a good adventure.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Dr is Back, 14 Sep 2007
The perfect gift for a Dr Who addict. Aimed at the 9 - 11 year age group, although it can be enjoyed by anyone. The books are slightly different to the TV program, being much more mystery, who-done-it rather than, being in imposible situations and escaping.

The Price Of Paradise finds the Dr and Rose on the perfect planet, after following an S.O.S from a crashing spaceship. Full of edge of your seat suspence, this book will leave you guessing right up to the last page. A good present for an 9-12 year old for a birthday or Christmas.

4.0 out of 5 stars trouble in paradise, 11 Mar 2008
By 
Paul Tapner (poole dorset england) - See all my reviews
(VINE VOICE)    (TOP 500 REVIEWER)    (REAL NAME)   
another novel adventure for the tenth doctor who, with his companion rose tyler. like all these it's an original story that runs for approx 248 pages of fairly large print and can be read by all ages. and feels like a story that could have been done on tv.

in this story the doctor and rose visit a strange alien world where the natives live peacefully at one with the planet. but all is not well here as the planet seems to be turning against them, and when a spaceship containing humans on an expedition to the place crash lands more trouble ensues.

can the doctor and rose find out what's causing the trouble and make it a paradise once again?

these books all follow a rather similar pattern in style and page count so with each it's a case of if there's anything to make it stand out. and this does. the planet setting is very well created and the prose really makes you feel like you're in the middle of a lush jungle. all the supporting characters are quite well drawn and have convincing motivations and you can feel for them as a result. the doctor and rose are perfectly characterised and you can imagine billie piper and david tennant saying their lines.

an entertaining read, and a slightly above average entry in this series.

4.0 out of 5 stars If paradise was half as nice..., 25 May 2009
Back cover blurb:
Laylora, the Paradise Planet, is a world of breath-taking beauty, where peace-loving Aboriginals supposedly live in harmony with their environment. Years ago, a human called Rez arrived on the planet as a baby in an escape pod, and was adopted by the native people. The Doctor and Rose arrive to answer a distress signal from a group of scientists, whose ship was shot down, only to find that the once-perfect eco-system is showing signs of failing. Natural disasters are becoming more frequent, and creatures from ancient legends are appearing and attacking people. The Doctor realises that the planet is a perfect equation: When left alone it is a paradise, but when alien objects visit the planet, the equation becomes unbalanced, and the planet causes disasters to try to repair itself. The Doctor realises that to restore paradise, not only will the scientists have to leave, but so will Rez.
Colin Brake's style of writing is both thoughtful and engaging; the twelfth original Tenth Doctor novel from BBC Books is topical, but avoids being too serious or po-faced. It does take a while to get into but once you do you'll have to keep going until you've finished.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Last Dodo, 12 July 2007
This audiobook rocks!

Fast, sharp, and neck-jerking, this story follows the Doctor and Martha as they go to the Museum of the Last Ones after the Doctor asks, "Where would you like to go?" but this museum is far from safe as they discover every extict animal still alive, in suspended animation and going missing one by one. It, then, becomes more dangerous to the Doctor after the creepy curatior discover who the Doctor is...

And then all hell breaks loose.

The story is clever, and the sections where Martha speaks are excellently spoken by Freema Agyeman. It makes up for thw withdrawn symptons I'm egtting having to wait till mid-series 4 for her return...!
