    "An extended episode."

    The charactars are spot on, the interaction is fantastic, the plot is great, the writing is brilliant. Everything flows like you are listening to an episode of Torchwood. Only the show would NEVER have put this on the air. It's gory. Really gory. Some of the descriptions make you want to.... just keep a bucket close. People eat their own limbs while their still attached, and eat other people too. If you can get past the gore though, this is pure torchwood at it's finest.

    Story
    "Switched to Audio from Text Version"

    Read from May 29 to July 12, 2012

    Started reading on my Kindle on 5/29. Switched to audiobook 7/10 (read by Burn Gorman, a.k.a., Dr. Owen Harper). The audiobook was abridged, so it left out all of the angsty relationship stuff between Gwen and Rhys, which was why I wasn't enjoying the book---because the show had already progressed their relationship FAR past the point it's at in this book. As far as the mystery/alien plot---predictable.

    Story
    "Not Dramatized As Listed! (Still a decent listen)"

    This is a quick, entertaining Torchwood story that I believe is an abridged version of the actual book by Andy Lane. I'm not really a fan of abridged versions, but I thought I was getting a radio episode of Torchwood with the actual cast members when (Dramatized) was listed in the title. It's not, it's just Burn Gorman (Owen) reading a story that's mostly about Gwen and Rhys with smatterings of the other Torchwood team members.

    Speaking of smatterings, this story is fairly bloody with a touch here and there of gore. Burn does a good, paced reading of the text but doesn't venture into the various accents of the diverse cast. All dialogue is spoken with a British pronunciation even though I was hoping to hear American and Welsh.

    All in all, if you're a fan of Torchwood, you should like this book.
