Exodus Code is a Torchwood novel by John Barrowman, star of the TV series, and his sister Carole. The story, set following the fourth TV series ('Miracle Day'), sees violent uprisings in the sea bed around the world and groups of women suffering debilitating synaesthesia.

The book is split into four parts - three of them read like a typical thriller - action and outlandish events, unlikely prescience and deus ex machina. The remaining part reads like classic Torchwood, focussed on Gwen and her family in Wales, dealing with the characters' lives and emotions. This was my favourite part of the story. I was also impressed with the depiction of synaesthesia, which while I have no personal experience of, came across in a believable and understandable manner.

I found the plot confusing to follow, and wasn't convinced at the end that the narrative added up properly - it often seemed like things were set in motion for a particular purpose before the characters knew enough to do so, and there was very little explanation of exactly what was happening and how the characters solved the problems they faced.

Torchwood seems to have transformed into a 'save the world every adventure' type of series, rather than the smaller focus it originally had. This feels unrealistic and a bit like jumping the shark. Overall I'm afraid to say I didn't find this book satisfying and did not feel it added much to the Torchwood story.

I was looking forward to reading this and i wasn't disappointed. The pace was fast, the story line good and i loved the mentions of previous Torchwood characters. I really hope there is a sequel in the offing.

Excellent read for Torchwood fans, this must be made into a TV series or a film.
I'm a John Barrowman fan and found this an exciting and easy read.

John and Carole Barrowman do a brilliant job of capturing the essence of Torchwood while bringing it up to a grander scale. This is what Miracle Day should have been. It celebrates the mythology of Torchwood and its legacy while opening up possibilities for future adventures. I sincerely hope that John and Carole write some more Torchwood in the future. It may be gone from our television screens, but it lives on here.
