It was very refreshing having River tell the story. Though it is not the book that the Doctor was reading in the TV show Angels take Manhattan it is more of a prequel to it, I would love to see more books written from her prospective. All of the dates, where your curiosity is peeked but they never reveal the secret. I mean who wouldn't want to know more about Jimmy the Fish. It could be released as her journal of sorts. Without of course, allowing there to be to many spoilers to be released as to not ruin the tv show.
Her point of view. It was so sexy without being slutty. As the DR is very non sexual in most cases, some of his best parts are when he is in a sexual situation, it was very refreshing to see her so full of sexual energy and to use it to her advantage. Not saying this book as any sex in it because it doesn't but I can certainly see why the doctor said Yowzah while reading it!
She played it brilliantly as she always does. Again if more books written by River/Melody Alex should certainly be the one who reads them. Anyone else would just ruin it.
To short to make a movie out of
I really do think that they should make more books along these lines. Let her finish out the angels bit ending with Rory and Amy being gone. Then start out a new adventure all of the fun things she does when she is with or without the doctor. We really do not see enough of the doctors wife on the TV show so it is nice to read more about her between shows.
Not many. If you enjoyed the first two books in the series then this one doesn't really compare, It doesn't even feel as tho it is part of the same series except that you have the same characters.
No tho it may turn me off to reading other books by Roth.
Only in this series. I am not a huge fan of Emma's voice but she did pull off the teen "tone"
Honestly I can usually find something in a book or even movie to say well it was cheesy but I liked such and such. That is not the case in this book. You know how you get a new book you start listening to it and if time allows (and its a good book) you don't turn it off. You lose sleep listening to it. Well this book I could only listen to for an hour or so at a time. Then I would turn it off watch tv or even another book. It was like I had a filler book. "Well if I don't have anything better to do I guess I can listen for a bit." So sad because I adored the first book so much for the last one to be so bad.
Ed Westwick did a great job really pulling you into the book. The story was entertaining just as the others written in this series.
I feel like my 11 year old is reading this book. The parts read by Ed Westwick are fantastic but the parts read by Molly are bad, really bad. I have no idea why they would replace the original reader with this girl. She paused in the wrong spots and then would read faster in others. Also the sound was off you would get use to the volume of the male, then the girl would come on, and you had to turn down the volume. The story was just as good as the other books but I had to go purchase the book because of the performance.
