Fun, nalstalgic, clever
Character. He brings to life the Doctor, Amy, the Ice Warriors and all the new people unique to this story.
Vampires Ofcourse! Any excuse to throw vampires into something is always fun. And it's great to finally have this uncut classic as Shakespeare intended it.
Did I mention the vampires? Oh wait I think I did. Oh and I was worried it was going to be in that headache indusing Shakespeareian language. But no, they dumbed it down for us mere mortals to enjoy.
I have listened to other versions of this story. This is the first I've encountered read by a woman. It gives it a different feel. I think she read it well, one of the best versions.
The one issue I had was the story began and ended verry abruptly. That is there was no title and author at the beginning and no formal ending such as "The End" or " This Concludes The Reading Of...". Not even something like the standard audible.com plug. It put me off a bit. I had to chek my iPod to make sure it was the right thing and started at the beginning.
I like the character of Mr. winter. I would hope to see him in future torchwood books.
The way chapter 19? kept repeating with the use of the time travel gun. It was a clever way to make the reader part of the story. As if we were repeating time.
The performance was pretty good. But not my favorite of the torchwood books.
Yes but I had to do it in two.
I am legally blind so I wouldn't read the print edition. But the audio edition is well produced and a great listen.
Well there are plenty of other Torchwood titles. Which are similar by default. It did remind me of the x-Files or the Twilight Zone. And I think there is a Children of the Corn reference in this book.
When Gwen gets her baby back from Jenny and tells Jenny what she thinks of her humanity. It was sad but hopeful.
Torchwood: First Born
I hope to see more Torchwood titles like First Born in the near future. They are a good mixture of sci-fi mystery horror and action.
This one is set primarily between Children of Earth and Miracle Day. But offers a glimpes of the old Torchwood team. This is the first Torchwood title I've listened to that wasn't one or two hours long. Those are fun but quick. It's nice to have a more In depth story to listen to.
The return of Suzie Costello. Anyone who knows the show should remember the troubled Torchwood member that this story centers on. This one resurrects her (again) and goes deeper into her psyche then ever before. This book also continues story lines introduced in the show that I had wanted to see resolved.
Indira played Suzie in the show. She is the best choice to narrate this book. She understands who Suzie is and brings out her soul.
Yes and at about 6 hours I could. But I had to listen in two sittings. Maybe next time I'll do it in one.
I miss The presence of Gwen. It looked like she might come in at one point. But perhaps there would have been to much contridiction with where shes suposed to be. And Jack has a limited showing.
