    Alien Bodies [E–pub/E–book] Where oh where to begin?Well for one thing why was I not informed that this book is absolutely hilarious? I think it was suggested that it was rather witty but I think that understates the case somewhat this is a side splittingly funny novel

review Alien Bodies Lawrence Miles ñ 7 review Alien Bodies characters Í 7 Dder is something horrifying than even the Doctor could have imagined something that could change his life foreverAnd just when it seems things can't get any worse the Doctor finds out who else is on the guest list. If I could give a book zero stars this one wouldn t even get one Actually having read comments by the author I d love to give this book negative stars Arrogant douche But I ll try to confine this review to the book itselfOkay so this book introduces giant new plot twists to the Eighth Doctor Adventures in the form of a Time War set somewhere in Gallifrey s future from the Doctor s perspective This is an incredibly ambitious idea and in the hands of a good author I am sure the story would be highly entertaining Lawrence Miles is not that author The actual result was a preposterous train wreck I truly never thought I would read a worse story than The Icewind Dale trilogy something I regret even admitting to have read even if I was sixteen or seventeen at the time but this one takes the cake I truly have never read a worse novel than this and I hope never to read one worse stillFirst of all forget the story The format of the book was awful I have to imagine that this idiot is a fan of the Silmarillion the way he keeps skipping to idiotic character backstories literally every other chapter He does this to create false cliffhangers and as a time travel gimmick each subseuent backstory is a piece of the Relic s story only told in reverse The problem is they re stories about characters that we just don t goddamn care about He literally spends an entire chapter in the current story telling us who worthless and laughable the Krotons are and seriously of all the monsters of the week he could resurrect from the original series he picked KROTONS just before launching into the Kroton backstory chapter wherein he goes into significant depth about the biology and society of the Kroton race I nearly threw the book across the room at this point So freaking terrible I can t begin to comprehend this Incidentally this is what I referred to in my review of War of the Daleks People complained about the interludes in that book but there were three times as many interludes in this book At least that book only threw one in in between major sections of the book serving to split the story up in a fashion not unlike the original series serials This book s interludes being every other chapter just served to jumble the story weakening an already weak tale But I digressAs for the story again in better hands such a concept could have been intriguing The Doctor shows up at an auction for the Relic a weapon desired by several opposing factions in the aforementioned future Time War The mystery is kind of silly since it becomes uickly apparent what that Relic is long before Miles intended reveal The mystery of the various factions is only slightly interesting but uickly becomes absurd Miles decided to delete the Celestial Intervention Agency from reality and rename them Celestis in their outside of reality but not really new home I m sorry if you shorten Celestial to Celestis then that i still has the sound of a long E in my head which makes their name utterly ridiculous soundingAlso how far are we supposed to swallow the splintering of Gallifreyan culture There s the original Gallifrey the Celestis Faction Paradox which is both silly and also originally Gallifreyan and now the Enemy an unnamed future antagonist in this future War of Miles We meet a member of the Enemy in the Celestis home at the end of the story and he s described as wearing Gallifreyan garb So basically every faction making serious bids on the Relic not counting you know the Krotons and the still not time aware humans are all Gallifreyan and every last one of them at odds with each other The fact that the Celestis want to pretend to neutrality and the fact that Faction Paradox adopts members of all races does nothing to change that factIn short Lawrence Miles set out to write the most ambitious book in the history of Doctor Who and failed miserably And then wondered why no other authors wanted to use his plot elements sighs The sole light in this darkness is that somebody eventually did and in doing so wiped this future War nonsense out of existence Causing Lawrence Miles to pout take his toys and go home Sadly I have to suffer through Miles before I get to that glorious point but I will revel when I get to that story

review Alien Bodies Lawrence Miles ñ 7 review Alien Bodies characters Í 7 On an island in the East Indies in a lost city buried deep in the heart of the rainforest agents of the most formidable powers in the galaxy are gathering They have been invited there to bid for what could turn out. I ll be honest I used to sneer at spin off books of TV showsfilms Whether they be Doctor Who or Stark Trek or Star Wars or The Dukes of Hazzard or The A Team I ve always looked at the spin off books as hack work There for some author to churn out uickly and make a uick buck while the franchise it s linked to was still popular I am realising though as I get older and wiser there are writers who are truly inspired to do great work in the fictional universes they inherit Writers who aren t just content with churning something out but writing excellent books that just happen to be based in pre existing universes In science fiction that s doubly true as in novels there is no limit to special effects or locations any panorama is open any place is time or space is possible That s why I ve finally decided to explore the Doctor Who novels and maybe even Star Trek and Star Wars somewhere down the line It s a chance for further adventures a chance of brand new worlds I am opening my mind people Although if I m honest I ll probably still steer clear of any Dukes of Hazzard or A Team spin off novels I findIt s easy to see why Lawrence Miles s Alien Bodies is so well regarded in Doctor Who circles Clearly its influence stretches far into the new series We have The Doctor himself as a fetish object who is feared and hunted by the rest of the universe The Pandorica Opens we have the Doctor s bodily remains being a power unto themselves The Name of the Doctor we have a character falling out of a window and into the Tardis which is parked on the side of the building The Day of the Moon and in the character of Sam a girl whose timelines have been manipulated to put her in front of The Doctor we surely have Amy Pond That s before we get to the bits about The Time Lords losing a war to a race who are similarly time active It s all in this book and even though Lawrence Miles has never written for it and indeed holds a large grudge against it Alien Bodies gives a much deeper understanding to Nu WhoSo how good is Alien Bodies Well it s a mix of gothic fantasy science fiction and Douglas Adams with its own pixyish charm There are characters who do blood rights whilst wearing skull masks there are spaces constructed entirely in mathematics and there are jokes that Adams would have been proud of for example the authors of the various reference books uoted It s a book which stacks ideas on top of ideas and is clearly than a little in love with its own intelligence And that for the most part is great as the book is intelligent and I appreciate the witty little gags there just to show off its cleverness But it seems to me that Miles loses control of these ideas So many are introduced and they are piled so high that it becomes frustrating when the whole thing starts to topple over and various ideas are just left scattered on the floor And at that point the cleverness in tone of the book becomes a hindrance as clearly it s not as clever as it thinks it isThe Doctor finds himself at an auction in the South Pacific with various shady emissaries The lot they re bidding on is The Doctor s own dead body Whichever way you look at it that s a hell of a good set up For the most part it deliver on the promise of that opening and I was thrilled reading it Ultimately though as entertaining as it is the book just slips away from the author
