Top critical review

Sorry to bring a bit of negativity but I was disappointed by this book. I tackled it having just read and thoroughly enjoyed "The Harvest of Time" by Alastair Reynolds (a real page turner). I did not think was as well written or as engaging. I was especially disappointed that it was touted as serious science fiction but there are at least two glaring mistakes: "Pluto, the furthest planet" (page 51) and "There's an elevated level of ozone in the air ... like the seaside" on page 261. There are many thoroughly enjoyable Doctor Who novels, but for me this does not rank among them. Sorry.
