Set in a quiet seaside town in the 1950s, this little book harks back to a simpler time. Following the adventures of a young girl called Kate who has just moved to Watchcombe this book has a very Famous Five/Secret Seven feel to it.
Featuring a talking cat, a mysterious museum, a crazy curator and snow in summer, the book is a couple of hours worth of easy and fun reading. It is easily accessible and suitable for younger fans of Doctor Who as well as oldies like myself.
The story is fast moving and exciting and very in keeping with the world of Doctor Who. Even though ostensibly written by Amy Pond (Williams) it does not feature any well known Dr Who characters (at least not by name!) - It does have that feeling about it though that there are clues hidden in the story if you look hard enough, even though these may well only become obvious after we have seen more of this season of Dr Who.
Overall, an enjoyable little read that adds depth to the series without being full of obvious spoilers.
Well worth the asking price.
My favorite bits however where the reminders of Amy's modern day life with a little bit about digital cameras and a couple of other references that don't seem right in the world of Summer Falls.
If your a fan of Doctor Who I would say you should certainly buy Summer Falls.
The mystery begins with Kate's discovery of a strange painting and an even stranger neighbour who seems to know far more about it than he lets on - and though not explicitly stated, I'm sure anyone who reads this will be able to discern that particular character's true identity, for the author has perfectly captured his quirks and mannerisms.
Though only a quick read written in a style reminiscent of the Famous Five novels I loved as a child, I greatly enjoyed it and will certainly be reading it again tonight in what will doubtless be a futile effort to weasel out any clues as to what we have coming over the next few episodes on screen. I'm convinced they're there after the little tidbit Matt Smith let slip in a recent interview, but perhaps they'll only become clear when looking back. Regardless, a super little read even without the added layer of mystery of its place in the Whoniverse.
It is reminiscent of an earlier era children's book but is accessible for today's generation too!
My recommendation is to buy it expecting a good romp of an adventure rather than getting sneaky spoilers and I'm sure you'll enjoy!
