I don't know if John Barrowman can write, but with the help of his sister, Carole Barrowman, he put together a really fun Torchwood-themed novel. The performance was okay - the narrator can even do American accents without making all American characters sound like they're from Texas. But Jack's and Gwen's voices were off considerably; it might have been better to use the original actors.
This one made me weep (which the show has done a couple times, but the books never have before). Absolutely lovely job of it.
If anyone could manage the wacky names and weirdnes that is the Hitchhiker's universe, Stephen Fry is definitely it. The next book uses Martin Freeman as the narrator and I'm sure I'll love that one too
This story - the entire series really - is the literary equivalent of comfort food for me, and so I had a bit of trepidation about the audio book. What if it didn't seem *right* to me?
But it does.
Oh, a few of the names are pronounced differently than I hear them in my head. But overall it's, well... comfort food.
