it was amazing
Read in July, 2007

THIS was more like it! After Clockwise Man, I wasn't sure about the Doctor Who books anymore. This one was a lot of fun though! The Doctor and Rose were much more "in character", and I really enjoyed all the pop culture references, the joking around, and the bad puns! Plus, it was good to "see" Mickey again.
While there were a few "huh?" things about the plot (porcupine aliens kidnap humans in order to mind-control them through an enemy aliens' stronghold) I still really enjoyed the character interactions, including those of the younger boy who was caught up in the mess and kidnapped by the aliens. In his mind, he kept building himself a story where he was the hero, but in the end he DID get to help the Doctor save everyone.
It was a lot of fun, and really truly only "fluff" reading, but I enjoyed it a lot because I still miss the Ninth Doctor and Rose.
