"Doctor Who: The Stone Rose" by Jacqueline Rayner

Genre: TV-To-Book/ SC-Fi
Series: New Series Adventures #7
Publication: April 10, 2012
Format: Audio read by David Tennant
Cover Rating: 4/5 Stars

Mickey is startled to find a statue of Rose in a museum—a statue that is 2,000 years old. The Doctor realizes that this means the TARDIS will shortly take them to Ancient Rome, but when it does, he and Rose soon have more on their minds than sculpture. While the Doctor searches for a missing boy, Rose befriends a girl who claims to know the future—a girl whose predictions are surprisingly accurate. But then the Doctor stumbles on the hideous truth behind the statue of Rose—and Rose herself learns that you have to be very careful what you wish for.

I'll be honest here, I bought this audio book simply because I seen it was read by David Tennant and it was Doctor Who. I mean, it's pretty impossible not to like anything that involves those two, am I right? I've read TV-to-Book's before when I was younger, so I had an idea of what I was getting into. If you're expecting extensive character development, don't look here.

BUT, if you're like me, and looking for something entertaining to listen to on your way to work, then go for it! David's voices of Rose and Mickey were spot on. It was like "watching" a Doctor Who episode right in my car. The plot was interesting and kept up with the usual plots of the TV series, which I really loved.  And you don't have to read the other books in the series before this one. I just happened to stumble across it and bought it, without having read any previous ones. The only thing is, if you haven't watched Doctor Who before, don't bother with this audio book. You'll be completely lost!

My Rating:

It has POEtential!
