Venusian Lullaby - Paul Leonard

I'm nearly done with this book, and I'm still trying to pin down my assessment of it. The author captures well the rhythms of a First Doctor serial, and the world in which he sets it (Venus 3 billion years in the past) is brilliantly conceived in its alien-ness. The problem is that it's a little too alien, and Leonard could have done a better job of explaining it for his readers.
