5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely, 14 Jan. 2007

This review is from: Torchwood: Another Life (Hardcover)
I follow Torchwood and it does have it's highs and lows. I'll admit it's not always brilliant, but this book shows what it's about. People, real people in situations that you just don't expect. The writing is gripping, with each character getting fleshed out more than there is time for on screen. The plot, about half eaten bodies, a drowning Cardiff and virtual reality, is sound, and all links together beautifully. There are some wonderfully funny moments, which I won't spoil because that's not fair, and there are other moments when you want to cry but won't because it's a book. (Go on, let it out.)

The chapters cunningly end on a cliffhanger, which makes it very awkward to put down when you want to eat your lunch, and in true sci-fi style, there are some stomach turning descriptions that put me off my food for a bit.

Do give this book a try as it's probably one of the best I've read in a while.
