Reactions and Reviews

My first reaction when I saw this story up at the new arrivals section of the Cascade Library was "Hooray, someone's written a Sentinel/Invisible Man crossover at at last!" (This is a crossover between the more recent TV version of The Invisible Man, the one with Darrien the ex-thief working for the government.) And then I wondered if I would be dissappointed. The story was certainly a bit rough to start with, I felt as if the characters (both the Sentinel and the Invisible Man folks) were a bit exaggerated, almost chariactured in their "typical" reactions. But I laughed out loud at the "Department of Weights and Measures" bit, and it picked up after that. Unfortunately, I feel the initial encounter between Jim and Darrien and Hobbes was clumsy; I couldn't believe that they would really use the invisibility that way -- isn't it supposed to be a *secret*? But, given that that was the way it was made to happen, it went along okay after that, particularly as it was dotted with some cool/fun lines.

I also liked the way that Darrien felt empathy for Jim, and how Darrien and Hobbes rallied round to help fix up the mess they'd caused by their presence. Mind you, if you're sick of Blair ending up in hospital... So... what do *you* think? [1]
