Life's Too Short

This book (like the original TV transmission) has a reputation as one of the worst in the series, and deservedly so in my opinion. Throughout, the Doctor is referred to as 'Doctor Who' and the TARDIS as simply 'Tardis' thereby flying in the face of convention. This is very distracting for the reader and makes this unengaging story heavy going. It is also longer than most, and weighs in at over 170 pages causing this reader to constantly check his progress and pray for the end. The truth is I never got there. Life's too short, and there are a lot of Doctor Who novels I have yet to read. I would suggest that 'Zarbi' is for completists only.
