    One thought on “Exodus Code

    1. Andrew

      You would expect this Torchwood novel, written by its star, John Barrowman (with his sister), to be fairly faithful to the tone of the TV series. And Exodus Code doesn't disappoint. As I read it, I could absolutely picture this being filmed for television. I could hear the actors saying their characters' dialogue, and imagined the scenes as they would be filmed. The Barrowman siblings have written a very visual novel. However, by throwing in an element of synesthesia, they've also created a stor [...]

    2. Siân

      I loved it. Loved it. It was brilliant. The storyline was gripping and the conclusion was fantastic. I love Carole's writing, and Captain Jack is there just like in the series on the telly. Highly recommended.

    3. Lucinda

      An adrenaline-pumping, nail-bitingly brilliant read that is fast-paced and full of the unexpected! This eagerly-awaited Torchwood novel, written by Carol E and John Barrowman (who played Captain Jack Harkness since 2005) certainly lives up to expectations. Full of intense drama and absorbing narrative this captivating, compelling read is a real page-turner. Complete within this universally loved creation are those distinctive, markedly memorable characters such as Gwen Cooper and Rhys, this book [...]

    4. Mary

      First off, I am a big fan of the Torchwood television series, which would be the only reason to read this book. I doubt it would have much draw if you were not already familiar with the characters. Second, I found this book to be quite readable and well written overall. I might have given it 2.5 stars. Yet it is deeply flawed—as part of the ongoing Torchwood drama. It doesn’t add much, if anything, to the individual characters’ development; we learn nothing new about Jack or Gwen, and they [...]

    5. Lynette

      Remember when Torchwood fought aliens? Yeah, I miss those days. I would have rather seen this filmed than Miracle Day, but that being said, I didn't really like it. In fact, I don't think I actually enjoyed it at any point. There were a lot of aspects of it that I felt were unnecessary - Rex, the kidnapping storyline, etc. I have no problem with - and, in fact, like seeing - so many gay characters, but it felt like almost everyone was gay/bisexual. In addition, I just couldn't care about the plo [...]

      Who else but John Barrowman aka Captain Jack could write a Torchwood novel. John and Carole Barrowman do a fantastic job of staying true to Torchwood history.In “Torchwood Exodus Code” women around the world are going insane, attacking loved ones and mutilating themselves. While across the earth, tremors are occurring. Geysers are popping up and underwater chimneys are venting toxic element. The world governments seem unable to cope with the growing catastrophe. This is just the sort of thin [...]

    7. Carl

      Given the authors, almost everything about Torchwood (including references to Doctor Who and The Sarah Jane Adventures) was included in this amazingly written novel. To be honest, it was the best Torchwood book I've read, and I've read almost all if them. I read this one in just under 24 hours: I couldn't put it down. The pacing was excellent and it was told in a way that reminded me of both Miracle Day and the original Torchwood series (aka it was brilliant). Obviously Captain Jack Harkness sto [...]

    8. Dan

      Your enjoyment of this new Torchwood book probably depends largely on how much you enjoyed the TV show's fourth series, Miracle Day. If you hated it this isn't for you. If you thought it was OK though this is a decent follow up. It sees a new disaster for Earth where woman are having breakdowns and hydrothermal vents are popping up instantaneously all over the world. It doesn't look good. The use of the main characters in this book is pretty atrocious. Gwen is one of the women having a breakdown [...]

    9. Eri

      I'm still hesitating between 4* and 5*, very upset I can't set 4,5* because right here, I really want to use it.So. Last Torchwood book I had to read. I enjoyed whole series with passion of fan who just found something they didn't know they missed from their life. So basically, I devoured them, including, with certain hesitation, this piece.At first, this book didn't immediately catch my attention fully. It waskinda interesting, but I was still able to put it aside and go to sleep. Because it wa [...]

    10. Carmen D

      The book Torchwood: Exodus Code, written by John Barrowman and Carol E. Barrowmen, was very good, however a bit hard to read. It was as if an entire season of a show was smashed into one book and I tended to lose concentration of where I was or what was happening at certain points. I also feel as if the book jumped around into too many perspectives, and it was hard to keep track of what was happening at what time and place. However, the plot was fascinating and I liked how in the end everything [...]

    11. Amy Adams

      Maybe I'm still just bitter about the deaths of Ianto, Tosh and Owen and miss the days when Torchwood actually fought aliens but I just couldn't get into this as much as I wanted to. The writing was good though, so I have a feeling that I would have enjoyed this a lot more if it wasn't suppose to be a Torchwood book.The plot was a little messy at times and the end seemed a little rushed and confusing, I wasn't really quite sure what happened.

    12. Gareth

      Very disappointing after their excellent YA novel "Hollow Earth". Far too much build up and Gwen being a misery, before a weirdly abrupt ending. Was often a hard going read.

    13. Mel

      AmazingWhat a great Torchwood story by authors John and Carole Barrowman. I loved the path this story took and the way it ran along a timeline of Captain Jack Harkness' past present and future. Great plot- it covered a range of topics, including the impact man has on climate change, magic, Jack flirting and sci-fi, what more do you expect from a Captain Jack story. There were no plot holes or areas of concern, pulling me from the story. Strong, new characters that were relatable and absolutely e [...]

    14. Kristi

      It took a while before it really felt like another chapter to the Torchwood story to me. It was nice to get back to Jack, Gwen, and Rhys again. Anwen is adorable in her few appearances in the book. I cold have done without Rex Matheson and the CIA in a few chapters. Losing Esther and keeping Rex was one of the low points of Miracle Day for me. New characters that I liked were Eva and Vlad. I was glad when the Renso, Gaia/mountain/puma, and Isela connections were explained by the end because thos [...]

    15. Karin

      As a fan of the BBC television series, I was eager to read this book co-authored by its talented lead actor, John Barrowman, and his sister, Carole. The book is fast-paced and reads like a screenplay full of flashbacks from present day to 1930s Peru, chapter-closing cliff-hangers, witty and suggestive dialogue all the pillars of Torchwood fans expect from the television episodes. Jack is brought to life again (in art as in his DNA) through skillfully crafted words flashing his beguiling grin, cl [...]

    16. Julie Garner

      This book picked up where Miracle Day finished offrchwood gone and Jack and Gwen separated.It really felt like I was reading the TV series. As always, Jack's brain works ten steps ahead of everyone else, even when he doesn't realize it. Gwen's love for her family is strong, even when consumed with a madness. These two are a formidable team, together and apart.What I love about this book is that you can't tell there are two authors writing it. I'm not sure how this brother and sister work as a te [...]

    17. Andy

      It was 4 stars maybe even 5 until the end. The last segment of the story seemed to lose my interest somewhat and then just as it picked up and was getting really good, it ended. And I simply didn't get the ending. Thinking about it, I should probably give it 2 stars due to the immense disappointment I felt by the end, but I was so engrossed in the first 3 parts of the story that I feel it only fair to give it 3.

    18. Lavender

      This is the last of the Torchwood books (I think). I was hoping for more to come. This was well written and entertaining. The focus of the book was mostly on Jack and more of his history. Recommended to Torchwood fans.

    19. V.L. Locey

      Yeah, that's a solid three and a half stars for a well written book. I'm no fan of Torchwood after the events of CoE nor will I ever be. Sorry, but it's just not Torchwood without Tosh, Owen, and especially Ianto. That being said, overall the story was sound if a bit familiar to the plot of "Miracle Day" as in needing Jack's blood to save the world. I remember when Torchwood saved the world from aliens and I kind of miss that. Just as I miss that special something that Jack and Ianto had that wi [...]

      То ли из-за длительности, то ли из-за Барроумена в авторах, я заочно решила, что 1) эта книжка будет хитовой 2) меня будет не оторвать от нее и 3) это есть нечто фееричное, запутанное и с множеством флэшбеков. Стоит ли говорить, что эту книгу я мучала месяц, в течение которого я пе [...]

    21. Suzanne Rooyen

      More like 2.5/5 stars.The Torchwood TV series is by far one of my favourite shows of all time principally because Capt. Jack Harkness is just such a complicated character. The last two seasons of Torchwood got really dark and posed some interesting questions with political, moral and economic ramifications. I loved that, the depth of the dilemmas and the very real human crises presented on screen. So that's what I was expecting from this book.It started out strong. We get to see Capt. Jack being [...]

    22. Laura

      This is set after the events of Season 4 and therefore focuses on Jack and Gwen, although Rex is briefly mentioned a few times. It also includes Anwen who has some cute scenes. I love seeing Gwen and Rhys as parents, even though Gwen is not doing such a good job due to the events of the book.I was surprised by the route that this story took; certainly the blurb is rubbish at describing what happens. It makes it seem like Gwen has a far more important role in the story and the solving of the myst [...]

    23. Lizabeth Tucker

      A Torchwood novel.Set after the events in “Miracle Day”, the last Torchwood mini-series. The women of the world are suffering through hallucinations, anger issues, visions, and other issues that are driving them mad. In addition, there are unnatural disasters causing death and destruction around the planet. As usual, the various governments are unable to cope.Gwen Cooper sees the issues firsthand and tries to contact Captain Jack Harkness without success. It isn’t much longer before she is [...]

    24. Sarah

      My rating for this is 3.5/5.Expect to be confused if you decide to read this. At least at first. With the switching of point of views and location/year I found it very hard read and remember what had happening in the chapters. It wasn't until near the end of part 1 (the book is divided into 4 parts), that I began to understand what was happening. After that the switching of points of view lessened and the bulk of the story is from Gwen's point of view, in the present day, which I appreciated. Th [...]

    25. Jamie Revell

      This Torchwood novel is set not long after the events of Miracle Day, and has a similar premise: the world is once again threatened by a mysterious event that could bring about its end. Fortunately, it's nowhere near as long as Miracle Day, or at least doesn't feel that way, and it's quite an improvement over its inspiration.Which is not to say that it's perfect; the sections with the Peruvian tribe are at times a little difficult to follow, and it's at times hard to make out what's really going [...]

    26. Wayland Smith

      One of several Torchwood novels, this one is is actually by Jack Harkness himself, John Barrowman. It's set after Miracle Day, so the Torchwood crew is sadly reduced to Jack, Gwen, Rhys, and a few brief apperances by Rex Mathieson of the CIA. What does a really bizarre experience Jack had in the 1930's have to do with women going crazy all over the world now, as well as undersea phenomena and the possible end of the world? And how does an apparent outbreak of synesthesia tie in? This is a mostly [...]

      A book based on the television show and takes place after the series finale. It is co-written by the actor who portrayed the main character. In this one, certain females are not acting like themselves and one of these females is the character Gwen. Meanwhile, rock formations are sprouting in certain locations and both of these happenings are connected and mean the end of the world. It is up to the surviving members of Torchwood to come to the rescue.This book had the feeling of the television sh [...]

    28. Gena

      I love Torchwood and I love John & Carole Barrowman! I picked up Exodus Code while in London since it hasn't been released here yet. It's a pretty good read - not as good as the Barrowman siblings YA series Hollow Earth. It starts off really good with a lot of action, a volcano, a secret Indian tribe and Jack dying again. Then it drifts into a really long sort of explanation of this weird synesthesia episode Jacks suffers which soon spreads to thousands of women around the globe. I enjoyed t [...]

    29. Adam Stone

      Exodus Code is set in the aftermath of the events in Torchwood : Miracle Day but, rather than the sprawling epic that was the fourth series of Torchwood, this book is more akin to the third series of Torchwood : Children of Earth in its scope and breadth. Captain Jack Harkness is the main character in the story and he is lovingly recreated in print which is probably not surprising when John Barrowman co-wrote this book but there is no doubt that he also understands Torchwood as this book is a re [...]
