Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Not really.

Did Frances Barber do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

She did, I could tell the difference between the characters.

Did Doctor Who: Snake Bite inspire you to do anything?

No.

Any additional comments?

This was really average--not terrible, not great. I'll listen to it again, just not soon. I think it could have had more suspense or more humor or more something, anything. It was just average. That's really all I can say about it.

What did you love best about Doctor Who - Dalek Generation?

I liked the Doctor interacting with children for most of the novel.

Any additional comments?

I enjoyed this story, though near the end I found it a little haunting. I know that can be good sometimes, but I was really affected by several scenes. I recommend this audiobook. Only thing that is a negative is that Nicholas Briggs doesn't do a very good 11th Doctor. His 9th Doctor is much better.

What made the experience of listening to Doctor Who: The Silent Stars Go By the most enjoyable?

I liked the way the narrator portrayed Amy's Scottish accent.

How could the performance have been better?

Michael Maloney really does a terrible job at voicing the Doctor. It is no where close to the 11th Doctor.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I really enjoyed this story. This is the first story I've encountered with the Ice Warriors besides the recent Dr. Who episode "Cold War."

Any additional comments?

I got a good deal on this audiobook because I purchased the Kindle book. I feel like I got a good deal even though the "Doctor" is not captured in the least. It is also hard to tell the Doctor and Rory apart in the narration. Otherwise it is a very good narration. Once again I like the story.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

I would change the "twist."

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

I think that having a different reason for the house being "empty" would have make the story more enjoyable. I wanted to be wowed.

What aspect of Raquel Cassidy’s performance would you have changed?

I think she did I fine job.

Any additional comments?

It was alright but it didn't have that "ooh" moment where there's a twist and you are astonished, excited, and pleased.
