Complex, but satisfying,
By A Customer
This review is from: Doctor Who: Genocide (Paperback)
I haven't read many of the Eigth Doctor novels as I came to the series late and want to read them from the beginning - of course many of the early titles are now difficult to get hold of, so i was particularly pleased to get a copy of Genocide - even more pleased as I found it impossible to put down - I'd had, what I consider, an unpleasant experience with The Taking of Planet 5 (who?what?where?when? - Whatever!!!) and having read a synopsis of Genocide was concerned that I might be in for more of the same - I needn't have worried. The characterisations were all crystal clear (I knew who everybody was all the way through the novel) - the plot, at first, seemed a little complex, but was, actually, incredibly well explained - and the descriptive narrative actually transported me to the african plains millions of years ago - great to see Jo Grant back and, at long last, as a grown up!
