One of the best!

This has quite possibly usurped "The Forever Trap" as my favorite Doctor Who novel. The story is solid, the characters are bang on, and Camille Coduri's narration is perfect. I was completely charmed by this book within the first ten minutes. It's as if Rayner knows these characters personally. You can easily envision them acting exactly as Rayner describes.

I don't normally relisten to audiobooks, but this one is definitely going into rotation.

Want to play a GAME?

If you could sum up Doctor Who: The Winner Takes All in three words, what would they be?

Can Rose make a good game piece for the Doctor to control? Can the Doctor get her out of the game alive? Who or what could put them in a game with real live players?

What other book might you compare Doctor Who: The Winner Takes All to and why?

The Silent Stars Go By : They are alike in you are not sure where the story is going because it keeps changing, they are read by different people and by different authors but both are worth listening too.

Which scene was your favorite?

The best scene was when the Doctor picked up the controler and moved Rose through the maze on the game board.
