The author clearly has a great love for the period as well as his characters, and he does the both justice. The story starts off really well but can't really keep up the intensity and I found myself a bit disappointed by the end, as the story gets silly, you can guess the ending, and the relationships never really change. It still manages to be good fun. Just go along for the ride and not so much the destination. The L. Ron Hubbard bits are especially excellent. Christopher Lane does an excellent job.
The story is smart and has some great twists. It feels a bit rushed to me. It also feels a bit hollow at the end, but I can't say more without spoilers. The "rules" of the creature are never defined, so it just feels a bit contrived at the end. But still very enjoyable and an absolutely excellent performance by Tennant.
