By Jane Aland VINE VOICE on 2 Sept. 2006
Format: Paperback
Older or more competent readers may initially be put off of the idea of what is essentially a book written for people who don't like reading (100 pages of very large type in the `Quick Reads' series) but `I Am A Dalek' is actually far more enjoyable than many of the longer young-audience hardback's published in the wake of the new Doctor Who series. The book reads very much in the style of the new television series one-episode stories: very fast moving and completely shorn of fat. The story is something of a variation from that of the TV story `Dalek': in that story Rose was responsible for transferring some of the `human factor' into a Dalek, here we have a human who is taken over by the Dalek factor. There's also plenty of genuine Dalek action, including the bizarre concept of a gunless Dalek causing mayhem only with it's `sink plunger' arm, and some nice humorous moments. The only slight problem I had with the book is the rather unnecessary coda, which is a bit of a cheat and undoes a previously powerful moment earlier in the book. Still, this is good fun, and if you like the fast and breezy nature of the new television series you'll find this a perfect read.

Wow! I didn't expect much from a quick read, but this is simply a fantastic read. The quick reads have been designed to get people into reading books and this should do just that. 30 years ago it was Terrance Dicks Target Dr Who novels that taught me to read and I hope this does the same for this generation.

This could easily be 1 part story from Season 2 with the 10th Dr. His character is captured excellently here as is Rose. The Dalek is as evil and tricksy as they have ever been if not more so. Here it briefly explores their hell bent desire to keep the Dalek race alive at what ever cost.

Brillant book and at this price you can't go wrong. Come on lets have another one!

By Paul Tapner TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 30 Jun. 2006
Format: Paperback
Half the length of the usual doctor who novels, and a little better than some of them as a result in presenting a story that could be done on television. The tenth doctor gets his first encounter with the daleks - and remember, he's a no second chances guy - and action ensues.

A very easy read and a very enjoyable one. The supporting cast are nicely sketched, and there are strong emotional moments that make you feel for them. Also look out for the best way to deal with a dalek since the van in dalek invasion of earth!

A nice little book, and well worth reading if you can't wait for the next tv episode

My 4 year old daughter loves Doctor Who, unfortunately most of the books out there are just a bit too old for her yet and too long. This was perfect, we managed to read a chapter a night before bed and it didn't take too long to get through it. This is her first book with chapters in and she thought it was fantastic. I just wish there were more like this.

Format: Paperback
Simple but absorbing Quick Read featuring The Doctor's nemeses and his companion Rose Tyler, and primarily designed to encourage reluctant readers and improve literacy skills in a fun way. As a teacher of English I think that it does that job admirably; it's a short, fun read, like a TV episode, but whittled down to the essentials.
Rose and the Doctor are in character, the Dalek is suitably menacing and the extra characters were written with just enough personality so that you worried if they lived or died. The explanation for how the Doctor and Rose end up where they do is a bit weak, but that's missing the point. A well-written, accessible and fun read for fans of all ages.

By Keen Reader TOP 50 REVIEWER on 10 Jan. 2014
Format: Paperback
This is one of the Quick Reads series of Doctor Who novels, and features the Tenth Doctor (as portrayed by David Tennant) with Rose. Just a little over 100 pages long, this quick read is definitely that; but it's a great story.

The Doctor and Rose land on the Moon; only it's not the Moon, and the Tardis is trying to tell the Doctor something. Not far away, an archaeological dig has found something quite wrong in some Roman ruins. And that's only the beginning.

This is a really good story, full of great Doctor Who action and characters, and of course Daleks. Definitely recommended.
