... as you may guess, I was not enthused by this story.
I'm feeling a bit blah about Doctor Who lately, which let me tell you is deeply weird. I mean, it's Doctor Who. It's a foundation text. There is Doctor Who for every mood and all occasions.
... but I'm not feeling it.
So, this one was about an orbital warehouse and the planet that worships it while waiting for delivery. It could have been funnier. It did a few things, but I kept distracting myself trying to make it funnier in my head. Retail and online delivery gives so much mileage. What would a civilisation built around Loyalty Cards really be like? But it most ran around the warehouse avoiding rodents and traps until they all stumbled into their corner of the real mystery.
I can't tell if the story was a bit blah or I was. I gave it three stars out of five on librarything on the theory it was ordinary and I'm in a demanding mood.
7 and Mel is also not a team that gives me feels though.
Also, in an attempt to not fall asleep in the recliner before the adventure was over, I rearranged the drawers in the CD cabinets so there's room for the new big finish. But I very small bammed my head on the corner and made one unit top heavy and only realised when I sat down to type this that I still haven't put them in Library Thing but I have now muddled up the cataloged and uncataloged boxes.
I know if anyone actually reads these as reviews they're not here to read about my tiny annoyances, but my point is, I think my review is more about the bumps and snoozes than about the story itself.
shall do better later, I expect.
