I actually first 'read' this as an audiobook, which I also highly recommend. The story is good, with just enough twist to keep it interesting, and the dialouge had me laughing out loud from time to time. As an American who doesn't get to watch Doctor Who nearly as much as she would like, this book was definately an enjoyable fix.

It feels like watching another episode of Doctor Who. It is so easy to visualize the characters actions and personalities! A must-read for any Whovian!

The Stone Rose is a great book to read. It takes you to Rome where you get to learn history. I loved it because I kept on wanting to read and when I did put the book down I kept thinking of the possibilities of what could happen next.

Another fun jaunt with the Doctor and Rose! This time we're headed to ancient Rome after Mickey discovers a statue in a London museum that bears a striking resemblance to Rose. The adventure takes some twists and a whole lot of timey-wimey turns. Great for a quick read when you're waiting for the TV show to come back on the air!

This story is the first Dr. Who book/audiobook I purchased. It got me absolutely hooked. I still love this story more than any other that I have read or listened to. I really enjoyed that it is set in Earth's past, that it is not very scary, and the story twist near the end. Excellent read or listen!

My boyfriend at the time got me a hard copy of this book for christmas (along with a sonic screwdriver, hee). Reading a book is a totally different experience from listening to it, and I like this book just as much both ways. I especially like how important and active a role Rose plays in the plot, just like she often did in the tv show.

This is one of the earliest books in the Tenth Doctor's sequence and it shows; it reads more like a ninth doctor. The story is more or less competent and gives a nice view of Rome outside the usual imperial circles.

I must admit these Dr. Who books are a guilty indulgence of mine. Ever since I was a kid, I loved to see the show when it came on PBS. Unfortunately, everyone else in my family thought it was stupid, so I only got to sneak in a show when nobody was around. That was in the late 70s, early 80s. And it was always Tom Baker as the Doctor.Anyway, enough reminiscing. This was a quick read, in fact all of these books seem to be fairly short and quick to read. In this story, Micky calls Rose up and has her meet him at the museum, where he's found a 2000 year old statue that's her spitting image. The Doctor and Rose realize they're bound for ancient Rome, and take off in the TARDIS. They find a sculptor rising quickly in fame for his incredibly life-like statues. Well, it turns out he is turning real people into marble. Rose falls prey to his evil powers, and it's up to the doctor to save her. Of course he does, with the mysterious help of Fortuna, a Roman goddess. It's up to the Doctor to discover the source of the sculptor's power and save the world from complete destruction. You'll have to read the book to find out how!

The Stone Rose, is, in my opinion, the best of the first set of Tenth Doctor New Adventures. While it's pace is relatively slow compared to the programme and the other books, and there is little "action" within (in a "running along corridors" sort of a way) it has the reader asking questions right until the end and a plot that would make any viewer completely sated. Featuring the Tenth Doctor and Rose, the characterisations are excellent and the dynamic duo work their magic just like they do onscreen. a book for all ages and one that you will not want to put down.
