very good story with outstanding narrator
I loved the narrator, first to say.
I was very surprised by the book’s perspective, since it is written in first-person, told through “the Governor”, the administrator of the prison where this story takes place. It was odd at first, but refreshingly different.
During the first half of the story, I found the Doctor not acting very 12-ish but more 11-ish – but, to be fair, I now have a lead of 1 1/2 seasons No 12 and Clara over the author. The second half was very much 12 as he would act on TV.
I liked the sparse appearances of Clara (not because I don’t like Clara at all, but because she lighted the story up without acting as Super-Clara – like o TV and in the last half of the book). But that most likely depends on everyone’s individual fondness for her. If you like her behaviour more, you’ll probably disappointed by her just waving placards from time to time. Concerning Clara, the author absolutely nailed it. I especially liked her mentioned problem with the Doctor suddenly looking old, as that was so TV-Clara.
