      ALL HAIL MISS QUILLAs 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 me out. I liked the idea of the main villain though. well, at least it was funny and I also liked Charlie & Matteusz moments AND MISS QUILL'S so yeah

      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 only gets eight episodes, and I thought I wanted to know more about the characters and spend more time with them, so I bought the one of the three tie in novels, which is said to be best. And in setup it's kind of clever, and with some polishing would have made a decent episode, I think. It has [...]

      Wow I thought people (Well the majority of Doctor Who fandom) hated Class (I don't hate it though so I'm excited for this book).

    • Chris Lemmerman says:

      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 closure.The handling of the char [...]

      nwhytevejournal/2845708mlJames Goss is one of the most consistently excellent writers in the Whoniverse right now, and he's pulled it 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 producer of 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 quite good Charlie/Matteusz e [...]

      This book stayed true to the characters of the television series. It was somewhat of a slow start to begin with, but picked up towards the end. There were some elements that I felt was close to the themes of the book and movie Nerve, but with a twist to suit the genre and the television show.

    • Laura says:

      I don't know I like some points and Quill 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 of interesting too.

    • Lizzie says:

      I loved this book but I felt that the characters didn't feel as they felt on the TV show. I understand that it is of course different but April was to much of a flower child and Tanya to much of the nerd. It felt that they were all exaggerated to much.

    • El (book.monkey) says:

      I actually think that my have been my favourite Class book of the three. it reminded me a bit of Nerve by Jeanne Ryan at the beginning but quickly changed when it went all Sci-Fi and as always I love Quill.

    • Sheila Howes says:

      Entertaining spin off from the Class series on BBC.

    • Lauren says:

      Not as dark as the first in the series but not as sappy as the second? Like a weird mix of in between. Finished it pretty quickly though.

    • Anuszka Gojke says:

      God, I HATE clickbait. This story was so disappointing. It felt like the author didn't even understand any of the characters or their motives - apart from maybe Ram and Miss Quill, who were characterised pretty well. The plot seemed too similar to Ender's Game and The Warriors of Kudlak (which was a Sarah Jane adventures episode that aired years ago and also happened to be another doctor who spin off). There wasn't even any surprise twists. Everything was too predictable and to be honest, so fli [...]

    • Sophie says:

      The Good-I liked the story, it seemed like the type of adventure that fits in with the sorts of adventures they've had on the show. It also left a really interesting and almost poignant message with how it ended. -It is a very quick readThe Bad-The writing style is pretty sub par, they basically try to cover up the simplistic language and style with internet references -The characterization of basically everyone other than Miss Quill seemed off in a lot of areas-Pacing was weird and it actually [...]

    • Laura says:

      Like the show, I'm not sure I like it, sometimes i feel it's a bit boring, the way the characters act but maybe it's because I'm no longer a teenager. Miss Quill though as soon as she came back on track, I was eager to read again. That's a character you want to know more about.I liked the back story though, really thoughtful about our own society

    • Charlotte says:

      At first I found the book a bit difficult to get into, but then it started to pick up the pace and I started to enjoy it. The plot was good however, the ending was just okay, as it kinda just left me like 'oh, that's it?' (but then the TV show was like that at times too.) Overall I enjoyed reading this book, but probably wouldn't read it a second time.

      What She Does Next Will Astound You will not astound you but you're in for a fun - if a little condescending - portrayal of millennial society.

    • Ali says:

      3.5/5 stars

    • Maebh says:

      Eh. Really only reading for the characters at this stage. Plot wasn't great.

    • Sarah says:

      The story itself was meh but what I loved where the bits with Matteusz and Charlie.

    • Ginny says:

      It's great. Funny and deep.

    • Niki says:

      The writing style was different but I grew to really enjoy it.
