Revue de presse

"The Jade Pyramid’s most ear-catching quality is its infectious playfulness. Day’s prose is wry and humorous" (http://www.doctorwhoreviews.co.uk)

Présentation de l'éditeur

Intercepting a distress call, the TARDIS is drawn to a Shinto shrine in medieval Japan, where the Doctor and Amy are met by village elder Shijô Sada. He explains that the ogre-like mannequins surrounding the holy site are harmless guardians, called Otoroshi. At the heart of the temple is an ancient jade pyramid, so sacred that only the monks may look at it. But the Shogun, the ruler of Japan, wants to possess the pyramid and has ordered seven samurai and a band of soldiers to come to Kokan and seize it. Whilst the Doctor is tracked by a ninja assassin, Amy discovers what happens to trespassers at the shrine. Soon the secrets of the jade pyramid - and the towering Otoroshi - will be known... Written specially for audio by Martin Day, The Jade Pyramid is read by Matt Smith, who plays the Doctor in the acclaimed hit series from BBC Television.

HASH(0x93a37a20) étoiles sur 5 My First Dr Who Audiobook 18 juin 2011
Par NG - Publié sur Amazon.com
I didn't know what to expect when I first bought this but decided to give it a go.

The story is a simple thriller and not as convoluted as a Dr Who TV episode. You don't have to be a Dr Who fan to follow along. The Doctor and his companion Amy Pond find themselves in ancient Japan, tracking down a distress call to a sacred object called the Jade Pyramid. But it turns out they're not the only ones interested in the pyramid and the secrets it holds. Amy wanders off to explore and soon gets into a bit of trouble.

Some (but not all) of the plot twists are not unexpected but are still entertaining enough. Matt Smith who plays the Doctor on TV is a physically expressive actor and it comes to no surprise that he is equally expressive in his readings. I thought his rendition of Amy's voice was pretty funny. I found the length of the book (just over 1 hour) quite disappointing. But other than that, The Jade Pyramid is worth a listen.

HASH(0x93dd9960) étoiles sur 5 Matt as the narrator! 27 février 2013

I'm going to be honest here... I'm a middle aged woman who loves Matt Smith. I love his portrayal as The Doctor and I'm an avid book reader so when I found out that he narrates some of the Doctor Who audio books I had to have it. I typical like to buy actual books to read (not kindle), and I have listened to audio books before, but I couldn't pass up the opportunity to listen to his voice read me a book (sigh).

Ok, so first off, the story is ok. It's not awesome and it's not horrible either. I chose this audio book as I thought the plot seemed interesting enough with ninjas and pyramids. It's very short story (about 45 minutes) and the author isn't a great literary writer. I say this because sometimes I found it hard to compose a visual picture in my head of what was going on. I thought maybe it was because I was listening to this while in the car and I was concentrating on two things at once, but that's how I normally listen to audio books so I don't think that was truly the problem I think it was the way it was written. The story felt a bit predictable to me at times which helped a little as I didn't have to concentrate as hard on what was being said. One of my other problems was that I couldn't determine if the timeline was taking place in the past or present (I later assumed past due to the course of events that take place).

One of the other problems I had was how the audio book started. It just started. No intro or anything. I put it into my player and a couple of seconds later Matt started reading the story. It was weird. All the other audio books I've listened to typically start off with something like "XXX audio book presents XXX by XXX read to you by XXX" and then the story starts. Not this one. It took me off guard as I wasn't prepared to get thrown into the story like that; I was still waiting on the intro. Instead it was like listening to an audio of a Doctor Who episode. About 5 minutes into the story the Doctor Who theme song plays and then Matt says the intro. It even ended like the TV show with the theme song playing again and then Matt saying the ending. So bizarre.
Now on to the narrator... Matt as the narrator was cool. I'm probably biased as I think he is wonderful, but if I step back and think about him as a narrator of a book in general he was ok or average. I felt he got better narrating as the story went along but in the beginning I was confused. Probably again because I was taken off guard with the abrupt start. I liked that he changes his voice a little when he does other characters. I noticed that when he would read his own lines (as The Doctor) he sounded more British. Like he was over doing it or something so you could tell the difference. I don't know, maybe that's his character in general, I just only really noticed it in the audio book that his accent dropped a little when he read normal lines, but when he read lines for The Doctor it was very British if that makes sense.

Overall I thought the audio book was fun. I liked that Matt read it. I liked his voice changing for the other characters. I liked the home-y feel of listening to Doctor Who. I thought the story was ok, but nothing that I would run out and buy hardcover to put on my book shelf. I think this audio version was enough. I'll probably listen to it again and hope that I have a better understanding of the story to compose more mental pictures in my mind the second time around.

Not my favorite DW adventure. A lot of what happens is explained afterwards or in a brief synopsis. We aren't really a part of the action. I didn't hate it, but I wouldn't say I love it.

HASH(0x93dd9774) étoiles sur 5 My First Matt Smith Audio 27 octobre 2012
Par Avi D'rea Der - Publié sur Amazon.com
I have an interest in feudal Japan so that is what really caught my attention. But the fact that Matt Smith is reading it makes it even better.
I liked the story and the characters. Some of the plot twists were obvious others were not. I really liked the giant guard-buffalo-things. I also liked the different voices that Smith used though it was more comical than not.
