Quick fun with the Doctor and Rose 7 août 2006
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I haven't been a "Whovian" for a long time - I enjoyed Dr. Who every so often back in college (starting with Doctor 4, Tom Baker), but when it went off PBS, I didn't really miss it. But I just went nuts over Doctor 10, David Tennant, and his joyous approach to playing the long-lived, two-tender-hearted, eager, often childlike Doctor. After enjoying the second season, Tennant's first, I decided to try out the first three novels. Of the three, Resurrection Casket is my favorite.

Author Justin Richards captures not only the voices and presence of the actors who created the (current) roles, but like the television episode writers do, he's created a supporting cast of likeable, interesting backdrop characters for Rose and the Doctor to play against. His Doctor is hyper, caring, and brilliant, as he should be, and his Rose is as tender as she is tough, and she's always quick on the uptake. He handles the science of the fantastic world of Dr. Who deftly, mixing the fantasy elements just well enough to allow the Doctor his world of hard science. Richards' story is well-crafted and compelling, with a few nifty twists and turns, and a very polite scary monster named Kevin.

Four stars for the book, two for the audio version 25 mars 2007
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com

The Resurrection Casket is a 10th-Doctor tie-in novel, an original story by Justin Richards featuring David Tennant's Doctor with Rose Tyler. In this story, the TARDIS is drawn into a sort of mechanical dead-spot in space, where something called a zek drains the power of all electronic technology, leaving an area of floating hulks of abandoned ships, also haunted by krarks, sort of space-borne giant sharks that feed on the oxygen inside the ships and any living being they can get their fangs on. The few people who live on the planets of the area get by on steam power, even in their spacefaring vessels. The result is a Treasure-Island-inspired tale featuring pirates, evil robots, lost treasure, madman and a monster named Kevin that apologizes politely to his victims before dispatching them.

The plot has far-fetched moments (steam powered spaceships??) but the author is enthusiastic enough in embracing the setting and assumptions and energetic enough in plotting and pacing that I was carried along through the story and quite enjoyed it.

I haven't seen any of the 10th Doctor episodes so I can't speak to the characterization of the Doctor as compared to the TV presentation of Tennant, but the character certainly had the feel of a generic Doctor--full of wonder and enthusiasm, naturally brilliant, and quick to call out the bad guys on their evil ways. It's not high literature by any means, but as a way to fill a Doctor Who craving when new episodes of the show aren't available, it will certainly fill the bill.

I also listened to the audio version of the book downloaded from [...]. I listened to it before reading the book and found it a frustrating experience. The problem is the abridgement--great chunks of description, exposition and even whole characters are lopped out in the interest of time. It leaves a story that is skeletal, with poorly realized characters and motivations and great leaps in the story where the characters suddenly move from point A to point B with no explanation of how they got there.

The one bright spot of the audio version is that David Tennant himself reads it and has a delightful voice, particularly (naturally) when reading the Doctor's own dialogue, and made me look even more forward to seeing his episodes.

However, reading the book made me realize that while still fluffy, the full version with more description, characterization and the complete plot, is a worthwhile experience. I would recommend the audio version only if you are dying to hear David Tennant's voice and have already read the full version; otherwise take a pass and stick with the printed page.

Doctor Who with a dash of Treasure Island-style adventure... 4 mai 2009
Par Ruth Anderson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
The Resurrection Casket is my first foray into the world of Doctor Who fiction, and I have to say I'm pretty pleased with this introduction. This novel features the tenth Doctor, as played by David Tennant, and his companion Rose, as played by Billie Piper. It's not too much of a stretch to envision this novel as an episode set sometime during series 2 of the current television show. While not quite the caliber of the series 2 episodes, the characterization of Rose and the Doctor is strong enough to make Casket a nice and believable addition to the chronicles of their adventures. When the TARDIS encounters a powerful EMP (electromagnetic pulse), all systems shut down and Rose and the Doctor are unceremoniously stranded on the world of Starfall, where the most advanced technology is steam-powered. Many of Starfall's inhabitants, like young Jimm who befriends the Doctor and Rose, dream of escaping their hardscrabble existence and striking it rich - perhaps even finding the fabled lost treasure of the dread pirate Hamlek Glint. The whole pirate angle of the story - especially the way the "Black Shadow" is used to mark someone for death - owes a great deal to Robert Louis Stevenson's Treasure Island. Those elements of Treasure Island translate well into the fantastic, science fiction realm of the Doctor Who universe. Richards' story accomplishes what so many of the Doctor's adventures do so well - adding a though-provoking, or terrifying, or fantastical new element to the familiar and known, changing all the "rules." The biggest strength of The Resurrection Casket is Richards' characterization of the Doctor - as far as I'm concerned he nails David Tennant's mannerisms, perfectly capturing the wonder, joy, intensity, and manic energy Tennant brings to the Doctor on-screen. If you're like me and can't get enough of the Doctor's adventures, Casket's an enjoyable read, suitable for whiling away a couple of hours lost in the Doctor & Rose's company.

Highly imaginative with many unexpected characters 30 décembre 2010
Par BS Detector - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
This was a funny and engaging story. I think I like the space stories in these books most of all, and this delivers amply. The characters are fully fleshed and sympathetic, the machine intelligences are authentic seeming and legitimately intriguing. This whole thing is solid steam punk, too.

This was very hard to put down and surprising all the way through. Enjoy!

A Delightful Entry in the Series 18 octobre 2008
Par S. Wynn - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
'The Resurrection Casket' is a fun, breezy read and I enjoyed the "Steampunk" aspect of the story, with the steam-only technology of the planet "Starfall" providing interesting and amusing visual images for the reader. The author, Justin Richards, did a fine job capturing the Tennant-ness of the Tenth Doctor and the often-witty dialogue captured the spirit of Doctor Who as well as any book in the BBC Books series. The Doctor sounds like the Doctor and Rose Tyler sounds like Rose Tyler. There were a few references to actual continuity from Series 1 & 2 of the TV show, a welcome addition for those of us who like these books to be somewhat connected to the series "canon". Top it off with a nice ending, and you have one of the better books in the series.
