9781841492087: The Portable Door

Starting a new job is always stressful (especially when you don't particularly want one), but when Paul Carpenter arrives at the office of J. W. Wells he has no idea what trouble lies in store. Because he is about to discover that the apparently respectable establishment now paying his salary is in fact a front for a deeply sinister organisation that has a mighty peculiar agenda. It seems that half the time his bosses are away with the fairies. But they're not, of course.

They're away with the goblins.

Mister Tom Holt, Master of the Comic Fantasy Novel, cordially invites you to join him in his world of madness by reading his next hilarious masterpiece.

About the Author:

Tom Holt is the author of such comic fantasy classics as: Expecting Someone Taller, Who's Afraid of Beowulf?, Flying Dutch, Ye Gods!, Overtime, Here Comes the Sun, Grailblazers, Faust Among Equals, Odds and Gods, Djinn Rummy, My Hero, Paint Your Dragon and Open Sesame

From AudioFile:

Had a bad day at work? Paul Carpenter, a new junior employee at J.W. Wells & Co., is having some for the records. As he sorts through interminable piles of spreadsheets, finds bauxite mines in aerial photos without knowing how he did it, and cleans up a strong room full of bizarre treasures, Paul is trying not to figure out his company's secrets--until goblins seize the girl he loves. Tom Holt sends up the workplace with a style reminiscent of Douglas Adams and Terry Pratchett. Raymond Sawyer sounds serious but stays playful as he reads the whimsical narrative. His Paul sounds a little too laid-back, but the goblins and other strange beings at J.W. Wells are spot-on. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
