'Ghost Train' is in Rhys Williams' point of view (1st person mind you) and has the added bonus of being narrated by Kai Owen who is the actor who plays Rhys on the show. That's just brilliant. We get to see everything from Rhys' perspective and maybe I am a sucker for that kind of stuff.
Goss is very good at mentioning a lot of past references in Doctor Who and Torchwood in the novel. For example that Rhys loves cooking and the ATMOS disaster with cars.
This is a very timey-whimey novel. A lot is out of order but the thing is it makes sense because you go through it all with Rhys and everything eventually falls into place in due time.
I know I am not really saying anything but I don't really want to give anything away.
Just trust me, it's so, so good.
I recommend this to Torchwood fans. And if you have only seen Miracle Day, give this a try.
Owen is a REALLY GOOD reader. His impressions of the rest of the cast are dead accurate, especially of Gwen and Ianto. Between his skills and that of author James Goss, the characters really come alive - this feels just like an actual Torchwood episode, if it were shot from Rhys's point of view. It's hilarious, and exciting, and moving.
This is my favorite of the Torchwood Audios to date, and I will definitely be looking extra hard at anything read by Kai Owen or written by James Goss.
If anyone is missing the 'fun' side of TW, then this is well worthwhile getting.
