Would you consider the audio edition of Doctor Who: The Angel's Kiss to be better than the print version?
What did you like best about this story?
I listened to this book during a break in the new Doctor Who episodes, so it was a very nice Doctor Who fix for me.
What does Alex Kingston bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
It's so much better to hear River's voice than to just read it for yourself.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
There's a part in the book where she makes a comment about her name, (I don't want to give the exact quote) but I was cracking up laughing. I really enjoyed the whole book, but that part really stood out to me.
Any additional comments?
Let me just say, that I LOVE River. She may be my favorite TV character of all time. (aside from the Doctor, of course) So, basically, I had no choice but to love this book. It was sassy and funny and just very River. As much as I enjoy watching episodes with her in them, it was so much fun being inside her head. It was just perfect. Oh, and the fact that it was narrated by Alex Kingston of course made it that much better. :)

An important point to note is that this is, in fact, a Melody Malone story. Just like it says on the cover. It is NOT a Doctor Who story. It's connected, it stars River Song (sort of) as a pseudo-hard-boiled detective. It leads nearly seamlessly into the Angels of New York episode. But if you are waiting for the Doctor or Amy or Rory or anyone else.... you're out of luck.
That being said, this is loads of fun and I could listen to Alex Kingston all day. So I recommend it for super-serious Whovians or anyone else with a River/Doctor crush.

love doctor who so this was ideal for my first audio book!
it was really nice doing my make up in the morning with this in the background!
Alex Kingston is amazing to start with. Her voice is just mesmerising and perfect for when I'm nodding off to sleep, which is when I usually listen to my audible. Unfortunately for me the strip wasn't what I was expecting, it was enjoyable but I would have preferred a story more similar to the Doctor Who episode.
A must for all Doctor Who fans, particularly those with a fondness for the enigmatic River Song.
A intriguing glimpse into the past, or is that future?
A River without her trademark weaponry, well, most of them, anyway.
This story had more twists and turns than your usual ball of timey-wimey stuff, and kept me guessing until the last chapter.
Cannot wait for the next installment
Alex Kingston was brilliant as narrator for this title. The story was fun and entertaining as a classic style detective story. I would definitely recommend this story to anyone who likes River Song and doctor who.
