Historical & SciFi Book Lover, especially Georgette Heyer, Lois McMaster Bujold, Connie Willis (& New Who). Also books for the kids.
Geromino! I bought this purely on the basis of the author - and was not disappointed. Excellent Eleventh Doctor novel, with Amy and Rory Ponds/Williams. The Doctor is aiming to get the Ponds back to Leadworth for Christmas - but ends up on the wrong planet at the wrong time. Rory is quickly separated from the others. Abnett really clearly brings out the personalities of the Ponds, especially Rory, and the narrator particularly nails that personality. This books was as good as some of the recent TV episodes - actually better really as the length allows ideas and suspense to develop. Expect cliffhangers at the end of chapters. And cool monsters. And some nice classic Who references. Well worth the download. Suitable for adults, and older young readers.
I am an old-time fan of the Doctor Who (DW) series. My tastes with DW have developed from loving the old series (Doctors 1 to 8) to really loving the new fast paced series (currently Doctors 9 to 11).
I was a bit concerned when buying this audiobook that it would a bit slower-paced then my new tastes with DW, however I was proven wrong. This is my favourite DW audiobook yet. The Wheel of Ice is a fresh, gripping and fun story. David's accent is quite enjoyable and brings something new to the DW audiobooks. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and would like to hear more from this author and narrator.
