A story for Twelve

I'm so pleased that we finally have Twelfth Doctor novels. I'm still getting to know him and his character and it's nice to have extra materials that are so closely related to the season to work off of. So is it accurate to his personality? I'm not entirely sure yet, I'm still figuring him out and I may have to reread it to gain all the little nuances that I missed the first time.

Dan Starkey was a brilliant narrator, and I'd listen to him again. All of his characters are very distinct and he captures their individual accents so well. He was very easy to listen to, easy to distinguish who was speaking, and he quickly became a favorite.
