Be maddeningly in love uill what a rockstar always I m confused about her use f guns and her less that attentive way f protecting Charlie Not sure how the aliens got past the Arn but suuure She s still the biggest badass in the galaxyThere was a Mr Smith reference This was great the characters were great the story was thrilling if a little confusing and makes me want to rewatch Class for the hundredth time Goss is Being There onef the most consistently excellent writers in the Whoniverse right now and he s pulled it هذه بلادنا: الجواء off again here this is a great book both thrilling and funny about social media fake news memes and awful alien invasion from a parallel reality and perhaps the former producerf the BBC s Cult TV website has been thinking about these themes for a while He even manages to make April s character look interesting and has some uite good CharlieMatteusz exchanges The three books are all pretty decent efforts but this is the best f them Not sure when it is set but I think also between episodes 3 and 4 is the most likely The best way to describe this book is schizophrenic The first 100ish pages seem like a typical Class story the kids investigate a new website that invites you to do very stupid things and film yourself for charity The latter 200ish pages are instead about the kids fighting an intergalactic hologram war It s like two books smashed together and there s no decent resolution to either half It all feels very up in the air with answers vaguely alluded but no closureThe handling f the characters is also all ver the place The closest to the mark are probably Ram and April with Tanya being a bit f a non entity and Charlie and Miss uill falling far away from where you d expect Charlie seems to just be characterized as stupid alien who doesn t understand things while Miss uill s cutting sarcasm is thrown aside for a war hungry monster which is not who she is at allAgain disappointing There are good plot points here and some decent descriptions that will stay with me for a while there s a section about April at the hospital after her mum was hurt and that s amazing but the rest f it falls flat Wow I thought people Well the majority f Doctor Who fandom hated Class I don t hate it though so I m excited for this book An interesting take n internet crazes the story fitted perfectly with the students from Coal Hill School So this is my first time reading a tie in novel for a TV series and I didn t expect it to be anything brilliant And it wasn t But it wasn t terrible either Basically because Class is a BBC TV show it nly gets eight episodes and I thought I It your most painful secrets And Seraphin everyone’s favourite vlogger wants you to get involved All in the name f charityAt first people just get hurt Then their lives are ruined Finally they disappearAs April’s fragile group f friends starts
Anted to know about the characters and spend time with them so I bought the ne f the three tie in novels which is said to be best And in setup it s kind f clever and with some polishing would have made a decent episode I think It has some f the humour The War at Home: One Family's Fight Against PTSD of theriginal the main characters aren t terribly far ff the riginal and the central problem the novel tackled was intriguing That being said my favourite character in the TV show wasn t in it enough and f course since this wasn t authored by Patrick Ness unlike the TV show itself I couldn t uite trust that anything this revealed about the characters was really true about them Things that irked me a little warning spoilers about book and TV show April has a problem killing nasty aliens Since when Didn t she travel through space and time to do just that in episode 4 and 5 Didn t she then rder ne lot f aliens to slaughter another Charlie is Ten Thousand Goddam Cattle: A History of the American Cowboy in Song, Story and Verse oblivious to human norms but not actually stupid So the bit about him posting his boyfriend s semi nude picturesnline was pure fanservice One Set Theory, Logic and Their Limitations of the things about Matteusz that we know is that he has the patiencef a bloody saint so it s inconceivable to me that he should erupt in loud anger because f what Charlie did to the point f suggesting in a fit f rage that they are no longer boyfriends That didn t seem true to character Tanya is chuffed to be blowing up aliens Really The most cerebral f the group would have been far likely to try and puzzle The Stringbean Murders out the mystery behind the Big White Box than anything else Instead this job went to April Their jobs in this books should have been reversed Things that were good Ram was pretty spotn I can see him getting carried away with the sport أساطير شعبية من قلب جزيرة العرب: الجزء الرابع of war uill was close to the real thing too I love her The titlef the book and the titles Stricken (Asphalt Cowboys, of all the chapters were pretty clever and tied in really well with modern social media culture My favourite bit was Matteusz s explanationf Polish YouTube Charlie What about you Do you have YouTube in PolandMatteusz No Poland is very poor country We just have tube It is big tube Tube is carried by cart from village to village When it arrive in village suare you must dance in front The Sporty Game of tube for everyone to watch We dance for the men for the women for the goats Whoever pay to watch tube ALL HAIL MISS UILLAs for the book it started fun and promising but then went meh coughs kinda like the actual TV show coughs The plot at first was exciting but then started to tire meut I liked the idea f the main villain though well at least it was funny and I also liked Charlie Matteusz moments AND MISS UILL S so yeah. O fracture she decides she’s going to uncover the truth behind this site herself Whatever it takes whoever she hurts April’s going to win But then to her horror she wakes up and finds her whole world’s changed What she does next will astound you.
I don t know I like some points and uill was great in this story but I don t know I m giving it four stars maybe because I love when humans see how awful they are and the skandis have all the rights to declare war and the first part was kind f interesting too Contrary to most Whovians I liked the tv show Class It had potential if they could get the writing and the characterization consistent This book however it was eh What She Does Next Will Astound You deals with social media and the impact it can have Inventions That Changed the World: Working Wonders on those who invest too much into it Of course with an alien twist it is after all the Whoniverse This was a surprise Randomly grab a book at the library day and found this gemHelps I like the BBC show Doctor Who as this is a spinff I latter found Love Onboard: Cupid's Caribbean Cruise outA school in London call Coal Hill where the student body contains aliens as well as regular humansApril is a human so I Graham but he ends up getting an alien legAnd then is is Ms uill the physics teacher Cold as ice she is the lastf her planet from uill She is a body guard who has nothing but contempt for the humans she has to spend he time with defending her intergalactic princling charge Charlie Smith And she is a crack shot with a laserYeah I have to look up this showThis story deals with social media and a nice turn Vertical Mind: Psychological Approaches for Optimal Rock Climbing on the ice bucket challenge Here is used to raise awarenessf Scansees Don t look it up not matter how tempted you getI leave Blood Love off here because it gets fun and the conclusion is well done 45This made up for the utter crap in The Stone House Every character sounded exactly like themselves and the levelf action was comparable to the show and eual to the character development Hell this book made me like April It was a crazy ride that s for sure but it was incredibly entertaining There were some chapters that didn t need to be in there like about the teachers that gave no value to the story at all Overall it was fast paced a thrill ride and a little crazily put together Ram was a real stand ut in this book I adore his passive aggressive leg and the relationship Ram has with it I really wish we d gotten to see that n the show it was amazing Oh and Ram texting Rachel is heartbreaking and beautiful and shows the grief that gets a little glossed ver in the show sometimes Also adored Varun and being Ram s cheerleader always Charlie and Matteusz were great as always and I loved seeing into their relationship The idea f Matteusz explaining traffic to Charlie is the most adorable thing and their fight felt very real and like a thing that needed to happen in their relationship They are still and always will. ‘We want your stunts your dares your whatevs There is nly ne rule There is no such thing as versharing’At Coal Hill School things have started to get public Kids have become bsessed with a website that demands you perform risky stunts r tell.
