Additional Information

Tiermann's World: a planet covered in wintry woods and roamed by sabre-toothed tigers and other savage beasts. The Doctor is here to warn Professor Tiermann, his wife and their son that a terrible danger is on its way. The Tiermanns live in luxury, in a fantastic, futuristic, fully-automated Dreamhome, under an impenetrable force shield. But that won't protect them from the Voracious Craw. A gigantic and extremely hungry alien creature is heading remorselessly towards their home. When it gets there everything will be devoured. Can they get away in time? With the force shield cracking up, and the Dreamhome itself deciding who should or should not leave, things are looking desperate...

The new line of Doctor Who books are meant to be juvenile-friendly stories. No problem. I'm a big kid. However, juvenile-friendly sometimes translates into silly. In Sick Building, we have a giant, planet-sucking blob, a house that's gone crazy, and a vending machine with a bit of a crush on the Doctor. The threat never really seems all that threatening, perhaps because the solutions are, well, silly: the Doctor doing a one-man (and two-machine) cover of Bohemian Rhapsody to sooth the savage beast (OK, I chuckled at that); and an ending that involves a lot of soda pop and a very loud PA system.

Heaped on top of the silliness is a cliched arrogant genius serving as the antagonist. He's just not interesting enough, and far too predictable, to drive the story.

This story should of been one episode, instead of a book. I felt the author didn't have enough of a plot to make such a long story. The humans in the story were boring, only the strange robots were interesting. I didn't even like the monster, and how the Doctor got rid of the monster was lame. Bottom line, I've read better books.
I did read the whole thing but in my view instead of the Doctor being a little quirky and energetic, he came across as plain silly. The other characters were too.
