Product description

Review

"Roberts . . . does a great job of maintaining Douglas Adams's voice throughout the story, with his trademark satire and humor firmly in place. Fans of Doctor Who, particularly those who loved the Tom Baker years, will enjoy this little trip back into that world."--Wired

"There's a lot to like about Roberts's version of the story, particularly for fervent Doctor Who fans . . . He clearly knows and loves the series, and fills the book with winking references and in-jokes . . . Most importantly, Roberts captures the bantering, cheerful relationship between the eccentric Doctor, upbeat Romana, and loyal K9 as fans will remember it from the TV series."--The A.V. Club

"Shada is an entertaining read...Roberts manages a zippy, fast-paced writing style that nods to Adams without ever trying to do any Adamsian acrobatics across the page . . . Fans of Douglas Adams will find this probably the most palatable way to sample one of his most famous lost works, and anyone who enjoys both the big heart and the boundless silliness of Doctor Who will be pleased with what Roberts has managed to put together here."--io9

"Shada is funny . . . Roberts has a turn of phrase that complements Adams's dialogue, without slavishly copying his style; various witty asides would sit very comfortably in a Hitchhikers novel . . . Roberts both adds his own jokes and works Adams' perfectly. Any new fan reading the book, having not seen or heard any of the other versions of the story, would have a very hard time picking out which bits were by Roberts and which Adams."--Doctor Who Reviews
