Publisher's Summary

Here's an exciting, original short story written exclusively for audio, featuring the Torchwood characters and read by Burn Gorman, who plays Owen in the television series. Across Cardiff, ordinary people are behaving in odd ways: saying hello to one another and going out of their way to greet people. Torchwood discovers that an alien communications field is gathering strength in the city. The team must find the device responsible and shut it off - before civil unrest engulfs the city.

Good enough for me

<i>Everyone Says Hello</i> is a pretty good <i>Torchwood</i> story with an interesting presentation.

Burn Gorman does a good job bringing most of the characters to life; the exception being Captain Jack Harkness, who proved beyond Gorman; I'm not sure if it was just the accent, or something else. But he did a pretty good job bringing Dan Abnett's story to life otherwise.

This isn't Abnett's first <i>Torchwood</i> story, and he proved here again that he has a good grasp of the show's characters. The story fell victim to the same tendency towards the grandiose that some of the more recent <i>Torchwood</i> stories on-screen have, but as long as the story is well-executed that's not a problem. And I certainly think that the story was well-executed.

While a new <i>Torchwood</i> novel would've been my preference over a new audiobook, I still enjoyed <i>Everyone Says Hello</i>. And that's good enough for me.

Hello, I'm Eugenie, I'm a fan and . . .

This book is not really centered on the Torchwood crew, but the people of Cardiff who just can't seem to stop saying "Hello, I'm (fill in name). . . " and giving intimate pieces of info. about themselves to anyone who will listen, which makes for some funny moments. However, there are people immune to this bizarre happenstance, the Torchwood crew among them. It is their job to figure out why nearly everyone in Cardiff won't stop saying, "Hello, I'm . . ."

Burn Gorman narrates this story well, immitating his fellow Torchwood team spot on, complete with Welsh accents and a somewhat American accent for Jack. I really liked his narration and look forward to any other stories he may do again.

My only complaint would be that the ending was tied up a bit too quickly, otherwise I thought the story imaginative, funny, and the action placed well within the story.

disappointing end

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I really enjoyed this story it was well read and intriguing.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

Sadly i thought the end was very disappointing, i listened a couple of times to the end to see if I had missed something but no, that was it.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

Throughout except the end

long for nothing

First time that I get bored listening to a Torchwood adventure...sorry, but a whole chapter describing people introducing themselves without any other kind of action is a bit too much...I know the title is "everyone says hello", but here it's taken a bit too litterally. Burn Gorman is perfect, though.
