“Doctor Who – The Blood Trail” by James Goss

dr whoReading is not just what I do to stay current at work, but it is also the way I relax. Therefore, when an opportunity came to review a book that would be just for fun  I was excited. I have watched several of the TV shows on the BBC of Doctor Who and always enjoy them, but I am not a true fan that knows all of the details about the show.

When the book arrived I was surprised how short it was when I thought about how complex the TV shows are. However, in today’s world this length is probably a requirement. I begin my reading with great expectation. The author did a good job of writing in a style that is easy to read.

The story felt a little long on the front end. What I mean by this is the author spent a lot of time setting up the story and laying it out. However, the ending felt rushed because of this. Again, this may have been due to the length. I enjoyed the story and there were moments at the end of each chapter where I continued to read the next chapter to find out what was happening next. Overall this may be one time when the TV show is better than the book.

** Full disclosure. I was given a free copy of this book for review.
