4.0 out of 5 stars Not as bad as people say, 17 May 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Doctor Who: Longest Day (Paperback)
Although this book has recieved a fair amount of criticism, I dont think that there is anything wrong with it. In fact I think it is downright brilliant. Some readers have commented that it is a very depressing novel. I have to agree with them. yes, it is a very depressing novel, nothing nice happens and quite a lot of people end up dying in very horrible ways. But not all DW books have to be happy in nature. I think the early part of the novel is very creepy especially the part where the Kusks are hunting the doctor and one of the technicians through the base. The technician meets with a very grisly end when the Kusks catch up with him. In fact, most people in this novel meet with a very grisly end when the Kusks catch up with them. But it's that depressing and sad nature witch i think makes this book stand out from the rest. However, one problem is the ending. Mr Collier seems to think that copious amounts of technobabble at the climax is a suitable way to tie up all the strands of the plot. It isn't. But i still enjoyed this. Dont get this book if you're faint hearted as the violence in some places is quite extreme. But if you are a die hard DW fan like me, then get it now. On the whole, very enjoyable.

I couldn't agree more. I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this. It's a pretty harrowing read, but compelling as well.
