Reads like a Hutson classic!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: X The Unknown (Paperback)

I wasn't familiar with the original story so can't comment on other reviewers' concerns. I realise that the story had to remain true to that, so my only minor criticisms were that I thought the pregnant girl would have either been saved by the creature or had the cancers removed from her foetus. I also think that a true Shaun novel may have ended with a twist, letting the reader know that it wasn't necessarily the end...
