What did you love best about Doctor Who: The Jade Pyramid?
The sense of peace and thematic symmetry. This had an unusual twist on the typical expectations for a doctor who story, and I liked the sense of humans learning from past mistakes through legend.
What other book might you compare Doctor Who: The Jade Pyramid to and why?
This is really strongest in contrast, because it does things that you don't usually expect in a doctor who story.
Which character – as performed by Matt Smith – was your favorite?
The village elder.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
For some reason, this was the kind of book I really liked that I kept pausing. It's something to pace out and savor.
Any additional comments?
This has an interesting sense of tranquility about it, and it's neat to see religion not portrayed as a ploy for an evil alien for a change.

Matt Smith does a wonderful job narrating. References are made to previous shows, some prior to Smith playing the Doctor. Whovians should give it a go, it's a nice break from watching previous episodes in between seasons.
I loved the Jade Pyramid especially as it was read by my favourite doctor, Matt Smith :)
The adventure is ok, the characters a little forgettable - some standard Doctor Who trope, a wise older character, a misunderstood dark character who turns out to be noble etc. What saves this for me is the wonderful narration by Matt Smith. He clearly is very excited to be the Doctor still and enthusiasm helps to move a story along - although his voice for Amy is pretty dire!!!
