This books is definitely not intended for adults or least adults expecting a great read with lots of unseen twists and turns or a in depth story. However if you are a Doctor Who fan and have child like wonder and can check your brain, then this is a great read. Reading this seemed to me to be quite like watching an episode of Doctor Who. It was a quick read where it introduced the characters fairly quickly, gave you just enough depth to understand where they were coming from and how you should fell toward them and then the story takes off. The story is very easily predictable as per most any Doctor Who episode. But that’s just fine with me because that is exactly what I was wanting and expected. The Doctor is on to something that seems bigger than it appears on the outside and knows that something is up. He works his way into the middle of the fracas and starts meddling and digging until the truth is revealed. Once revealed he does what the Doctor does best and solves the problems to the best of his abilities with a companion of course (who is not a regular from the show and is just a one time companion in this book). Overall I would give it a 5/5, but it has DRM so I have to take off 1 point for that.

The 11th Doctor has found his way to the South Pole where a (stereotypically) bad businessman has seemingly come up with a new synthetic fuel called Fire Ice that would solve the world's energy crisis and reduce the amount of greenhouse gases (read: natural carbon dioxide that trees take in). The Doctor is suspicious that this man came up with it on his own. As you can probably deduce from the title, he had a little help - the Silurians, Earth's original inhabitants. Lizzie, a stereotypical environmental activist, has somehow accompanied the Doctor to this Antarctic outpost. How she comes to be by the Doctor's side is not revealed; she kind of just shows up. Along the way, we get a paint-by-numbers story of environmental activism vs. evil corporate money grubbers with the Doctor and a few monsters thrown in. (After all, what would Doctor Who be without monsters? At 62 pages, this book is meant to be read quickly. I read this shortly after finishing Ben Hur, so I needed something quick to plow through on a summer weekend. As entertainment, it fits the bill. As a Doctor Who story, meh. BOTTOM LINE: A good time-killer for Doctor Who fans with low expectations.
