4.0 out of 5 stars A Moment Of Dislocation., 2 April 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Oh No it Isn't! (New Adventures) (Mass Market Paperback)
Being someone who despises Pantomine I have to admit that I approached this book with some trepidation. To my suprise however I found it quite enjoyable. The first fifty pages are excellent, establishing Benny as working on the university planet of Dellah and also giving the reader a very good idea of what Dellah is actually like. After that Benny finds herself seemingly trapped in a Pantomine along with many of her friends and colleagues, while another group of Dellah academics find themselves on the run from the alien Grel.

As I have said I loathe Pantomine so Benny's adventures in the land of Pantomine did feel like they went on for a very long time. However Paul Cornell's writing was sufficient enough to keep me reading, and I loved the fact that Benny was clearly hating being trapped in Pantomine. When the explanation as to how Benny ended up there arrives, Cornell manages to tie up all the plot strands superbly and ends the book very satisfyingly.

With the benefit of hindsight "Oh No It Isnt" may not have been the best book to start the Benny New Adventures but it is nevertheless a very good read.
