July Books 8) Everyone Says Hello, by Dan Abnett

I enjoyed very much both the other Torchwood book by Abnett I have read, and the Torchwood audiobook I listened to last week, so had high expectations for Everyone Says Hello. They were not quite met. The neatest bit is the title - all over Cardiff, people start to greet each other and to confess all kinds of mostly boring yet intimate details about their lives. Of course, it turns into an alien invasion of the week story, competently enough done, and decently read by Burn Gorman whose Owen gets a fair amount of viewpoint character time. But not quite as zestful as some of the other Torchwood writing.
