Thick thickity me  

Because I need to share this moment of great intelligence on my part. So, I'm in a café, reading a Doctor Who novel I grabbed on my way (the café is part of a bookshop) and two pages in and here the description:

"It was more or less man-shaped but much bigger than any man. The head carried a sort of crest with strange handle-like attachments, and the face was a terrifying blank steel mask."

And I went all "Yuuuuuus, Cyberman!" like it's a surprise when the book is called Made of Steel and features a Cyberman on its cover omg.

Why so slooooow, me, whyyyy?! XD

PS: The book isn't good at all. The pacing is bad and there's some mild OOC going around. Fortunately, it's short and there are some funny moments.

Mood: happyhappy

I should add that the summary indicates there are Cybermen in the story (and I read it). It's the combo of thickness there XD

Love you too, dearie! *hugs*

(Amy is so great to icon)

I often have fits of epic thickness XD

At least, it's short. About 100 pages, so I got over it fast. And didn't buy it in the end XD

Wow, another club we can open! XD *grins*

Yeah! No but really, the characters were so off at times. Like some doppelgängers. And the writing, just, ugh. A bit like in mediocre child book series.

That really sucks :( The only Who novel I read was the one featuring River in Manhattan, and I didn't like it very much, either :(
