➨ The Twilight Streets Ebook ➮ Author Gary Russell – Rvtrek.info

The Twilight Streets I agree with what many others have said great book I read it in one sitting which I hadn t planned on but I couldn t put it down I especially like how this book embraces the relationship between Jack and Ianto. Loved the Janto flirting, the general plot was interesting and I liked Bilis Manger as the foe to the Torchwood team and wish we d seenof him in the tv show view spoiler The possible future Bilis showed the team was so interesting I wanted muchof it too hide spoiler Unfortunately the book was a bit short about 240 pages and couldn t develop the plot well enough to be believable and some of the characterisations also fell flat Other than the audio books and audio plays ther Loved the Janto flirting, the general plot was interesting and I liked Bilis Manger as the foe to the Torchwood team and wish we d seenof him in the tv show view spoiler The possible future Bilis showed the team was so interesting I wanted muchof it too hide spoiler Unfortunately the book was a bit short about 240 pages and couldn t develop the plot well enough to be believable and some of the characterisations also fell flat Other than the audio books and audio plays there are no actors who can make some stupid dialogue sound good or at least tolerable.I gave this 3 stars because it was an enjoyable experience even though it won t go down in history as one of my favourite Torchwood productions outside of the actual TV show By far my favourite as of now Loved the team s dynamics, the friendly banter as we see it in the series and especially the Jack Ianto scenes ugh Oh and Bilis Manger, of course That d quite a way to make a villain something that s not quite evil and not good either Jus loved it Not impressed I ve enjoyed the Doctor Who novelsthan this, my first Torchwood novel The quality of the writing leaves a lot to be desired not very sophisticated Much like a Doctor Who novel with a lot of references to sex added. This is the Torchwood I fell in love with Banter, aliens, flirtations, Jack and Ianto embracing the attraction between them Toss in Bilis Manger and you have all the ingredients for a darn fine novel, especially for fans of the show A fast paced romp with the gang from the Hub that flowed well and kept me turning pages at a breakneck speed Well done, Mr Russell I ve already shared most of my thoughts with a friend, but basically this wasn t really the story for me I couldn t properly get into it and I felt lost a lot of the time However, I loved recognising a few of the places in Cardiff that were mentioned, and it had a few very strong Ianto moments, including Gwen smiled, nudged his arm Oh come on, smile Lisa, Jack being bisexual is hardly a crime Best of both worlds, isn t it And Ianto pushed her away No, Gwen No, really it s bloody not I ve already shared most of my thoughts with a friend, but basically this wasn t really the story for me I couldn t properly get into it and I felt lost a lot of the time However, I loved recognising a few of the places in Cardiff that were mentioned, and it had a few very strong Ianto moments, including Gwen smiled, nudged his arm Oh come on, smile Lisa, Jack being bisexual is hardly a crime Best of both worlds, isn t it And Ianto pushed her away No, Gwen No, really it s bloody not It s the worst of any world because you don t really belong anywhere, because you are never sure of yourself or those around you You can t trust in anyone, their motives or their intentions And because of that, you have, in a world that likes its nice shiny labels, no true identity For Torchwood s Little Miss Sensitive , you don t half talk crap sometimes So do me a favour and shut up about it, all right This is following an in depth discussion of ABBA, which I also appreciate This is the sixth of the novels based on Torchwood, a dark spin off from Doctor Who Personally, I m a big fan of the show, which is why I was interested in the novels in the first place I ve found them to be uneven, but this is one of the better ones.Among the elements at play here are serveral characters from both the Dr Who and Torchwood series returning, a section of town that Torchwood leader Jack Harkness can t enter and the mystery behind it, and a very dark future version of what could This is the sixth of the novels based on Torchwood, a dark spin off from Doctor Who Personally, I m a big fan of the show, which is why I was interested in the novels in the first place I ve found them to be uneven, but this is one of the better ones.Among the elements at play here are serveral characters from both the Dr Who and Torchwood series returning, a section of town that Torchwood leader Jack Harkness can t enter and the mystery behind it, and a very dark future version of what could have happend to the Torchwood crew.I thought this was well done It s largely about Jack, my favorite of the characters There were also good scenes with the others, including a nice part where Ianto gets a bit of steel in his spine and tells of Gwen I liked the characterizations and the ties to the shows The evil Torchwood in the future actually made a lot of sense, not just a we turned them evil to tell a story, isn t it cool kinda thing And the ugly secret behind it was a nice reveal I won t spoil here.I enjoyed this one, and thought it was a great addition to the stories of Torchwood I still wish they d bring the show back A friend gave me this and I read it in one day I must say I was surprised how good it was not brilliant TV tie ins rarely are , but it reads like an episode, and all characters get their moments epecially Ianto, which makes me happy Plus there s lots of continuity, making it really feel like part of the Torchwood universe.
