I'm not used to listening to books and I did find myself losing focus and having to backtrack a couple of times. However, I did really enjoy listening to "The Stone Rose" and would reccomend it to any Doctor Who fan. The best thing about this audio book is far and away David Tennant's narration. He puts a lot of enthusiasm into the project, and his impressions of the other characters (especially Mickey) are spot on. I love the way he uses his natural accent for the bridging narration but switches over to his "Doctor voice" for his spoken lines. The life he brings to it makes it much more like listening to an episode than it would have been otherwise. I also really enjoyed the moments where the Doctor and Mickey discuss Rose. It's great for character development and David puts a lot into that "scene". Overall, if you like season 2 of Doctor Who or just David Tennant's voice, this is a great listen.
