Doctor Who: Snowglobe 7, By Mike Tucker

Author: Mike Tucker
Rating: 4/5
Characters: 4/5
Story: 4/5
Cover: 5/5

I really liked this book and the cover is my ultimate favorite so far. The story really had a good plot and the characters were really involved.

Plot: The beginning has us in what is called a Snowglobe and on earth in 2099 they are the only way to keep and protect snow and a part of Earths past from the harshness of global warming. But in the beginning we also meet a monster that has been waiting for centuries in the snow. Then we join the Doctor and Martha. The Doctor has promised her a nice relaxing holiday of sun bathing and Sugary Shiplanos, but instead of sun they get not just a little bit of snow, but a whole blizzard. That's not the only problem they have at hand. The director of Snowglobe 6 has a secret of her own and she will do what ever it takes to keep it safe. With attacks and infectious out brakes the Doctor and Martha have to join forces with a nurse and a Flisk and try to get on the monsters good side, but will it be to late.


About a book that i have not read....... Black star, Bright Dawn, By Scott O'Dell

Title: Black Star, Bright Dawn
Pages: 144
This might be for a younger audience, but i think it has a nice plot.
Plot: Most Young girls experiences never involve hunting bearded seals on the ice, even within the Alaskan Eskimo culture. Bright Dawn is an exception. In her father's eyes, she became his son's replacement ever since her brother drowned. When Bright Dawn is 18 years old, her father, recently injured, insists that she take his place in the Iditarod, the famous Alaskan dogsled race covering more than a thousand miles between Anchorage and Nome. Unflinching, yet trembling in her mukluks, she faces her challenge head-on.

Plot: After the death of her father, an English gentleman who had never married her mother, Patricia must leave the boarding school where she has lived for 10 years. Penniless but determined to claim her father's estate in Barbados, she Stowe's away on a ship bound for the Caribbean. Though her plans go awry, Patricia discovers friendship, romance, marriage, love, danger, courage, self-reliance, and the satisfaction of a useful trade. She finds her sol mate early in the story, but because he cannot support her, she must accept the proposal of a man she does not love. A recurring theme is Patricia's dressing as a man, first for the freedom of climbing the ship's rigging and later for the necessity of earning her living in a man's profession. Told in the first person, this seafaring saga features a heroine who longs for both independence and love.
