Format: Audio CD
Since all of the other reviews on here refer to the actual book, I thought I'd write one for the audio CD. I can't say how it compares to the written book because I haven't got my hands on that yet, but it does say abridged, so some details must be left out.

Anyway, this is the first Doctor Who audio book I've listened to. I have heard how wonderful the Big Finish audio stories are and how much works goes into them, basically being acted out by different people like a radio drama or a read-along adventure, and I when I realised that The Stone Rose was a BBC audio book read by one person, I wondered what it'd be like. I had once listened to a Star Trek novel on tape years ago, and thought it was boring to listen to the entire thing read by one person. But I will say, David Tennant read The Stone Rose, and he did a terrific job. He does wonderful character voices and captures the inflections of Rose and Mickey and even Jackie just right, without actually trying to entirely impersonate them. I love his voice for the G.E.N.I.E. as well. He's great at doing The Doctor (of course!) and then slipping back to the narrative as David Tennant with his Scottish accent. I think after listening to this one it might be a let down by comparison to hear anyone else narrate these books as I've been spoiled! I am going to try and get my hands on Resurrection Casket next.

Aside from the audio aspect, it's just a really fun story too. Jacqueline Rayner really captured the essence of The Doctor and Rose's relationship, which I love so much about the series. The only other modern Who novel I've read is The Clockwise Man, which was good, but I'll rate The Stone Rose a bit better. It's truly a time travel story worthy of Who.

I'm glad these new novels have been good so far.

Throughly enjoyed this book, although i read it in a matter of hours! I suppose this is a good thing as it means i kept wanting to read on, but on the other hand it kind of seemed over before it had began.

I like the relationship between Rose and The Doctor and this one is the most emotional of the first 3 tenth doctor books!

The plot itself is fantastic as it has little twists in and has an unexpected ending as things aren't what they seem!

I read this first of the 3 books and will be reading again to just go back and "figure" things out! Its very easy to read as rather than it being more scientific it is more historial so appeals at that level!

Its definately worth a read and would appeal to anyone even if they haven't watched any of the sereis on television or other books! Great!

Mickey Smith has something to show Rose and the Doctor in the British Museum. Amongst the classical antiquities is a life size statue of the goddess Fortuna that bears a more than striking resemblance to Rose.

It is an intriguing start that soon sees Rose and the Doctor propelled off to Rome in the second century. It makes it a good choice for this History Collection. Many of the books re-released for the series have been set in the twentieth century. This novel offers a period which is much further away in time and culture. Even so, we have seen the Doctor make several forays into the ancient Roman world. So this is not unfamiliar territory. The author has picked a period of Roman history that is relatively calm, during the middle of the age of ‘the five good emperors’. With no major political or military upheavals going on it is a fairly peaceful time which allows the Doctor and Rose to blend into Roman society and make their investigations. The Doctor even ditches his usual look for a traditional Roman tunic that lacks the pockets of his usual outfits.

A lot of the novel is taken up with the mystery of the statue. Rose and the Doctor ingratiate themselves into Roman society and have a lot of fun along the way. Much of this captures the early period of the Tenth Doctor. There is a lot to be enjoyed in the comparison between Rose’s and Vanessa’s misconceptions about Roman history and culture. It is a nice contrast that it is all amusing for Rose but utterly serious for Vanessa.
There is good characterisation of the Doctor and Rose. The novel successfully captures the dynamic of their relationship even though the book was written before their first series together. However, Mickey’s character and his relationship with the new Doctor is a little off.

This book was chosen by my 8 year old daughter to write a review for her summer holiday homework. Being a fan I also read it and was intrigued by its complexity in travelling from the present to AD120 and BC 2375, not forgetting time to stop off for the doctor to learn about sculpture.

The break in the time line and its eventual solution needs a clear head, but together me and daughter think we've sussed it. Just watch out for the GENIE and be careful what you wish for!

I have read the book and listened the audio book narrated excellently by the 10th Doctor himself, David Tennant. While visiting the British Museum with Mickey and Jackie, Rose and the Doctor discover a statue that looks oddly familiar. So the Doctor and Rose find themselves in Ancient Rome. This is excellently written by Jacqueline Rayner, who is clearly a fan of the Doctor Who universe and researches her time periods very thoroughly.
