Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

"Entertaining.... Holt has a zany humor that will appeal to fans of Terry Pratchett and Christopher Moore."—Library Journal on The Outsorcerer's Apprentice

"Holt adds to his repertoire of comedic sf, one of the most difficult genera acts to master. Theo is an engaging hero; his brilliance is counteracted by his laziness and his compassion, which is matched by his sense of survival. Place this title alongside Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman's Good Omens, Pratchett's "Discworld" series, and the absurdist works of mainstream authors such as John Barth and Gilbert Sorrentino."—Library Journal (Starred Review) on Doughnut

"A light read from the prolific humorist; a romp round the multiverse."—SFX on Doughnut

"Like the deep-fried snack after which it's named, this sci-fi novel is sweet and fun."—Sun (UK) on Doughnut

"Blonde Bombshell is a clever, funny, tirelessly inventive, apocalyptic leg-hump of a book."—Christopher Moore, New York Times bestselling author

"Tom Holt's Doughnut presents a roller-coaster ride through the world of physics and the origins of the universe."—Library Journal

"One for physicists as well s Krispy Kreme-loving policemen."—T3 on Doughnut

Présentation de l'éditeur

"Tom Holt may be the most imaginative satirist to land on our shores since Douglas Adams."


-Christopher Moore, New York Times bestselling author



A HAPPY WORKFORCE, IT IS SAID, IS A PRODUCTIVE WORKFORCE.



Try telling that to an army of belligerent goblins. Or the Big Bad Wolf. Or a professional dragon slayer. Who is looking after their well-being? Who gives a damn about their intolerable working conditions, lack of adequate health insurance, and terrible coffee in the canteen?



Thankfully, with access to an astonishingly diverse workforce and limitless natural resources, maximizing revenue and improving operating profit has never really been an issue for the one they call "the Wizard." Until now.



Because now a perfectly good business model-based on sound fiscal planning, entrepreneurial flair, and only one or two of the infinite parallel worlds that make up our universe-is about to be disrupted by a young man not entirely aware of what's going on.



There's also a slight risk that the fabric of reality will be torn to shreds. You really do have to be awfully careful with these things.



PRAISE FOR THE NOVELS OF TOM HOLT:



"Place this title alongside Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman's Good Omens [and] Pratchett's Discworld series."


LIBRARY JOURNAL (STARRED REVIEW)



"Wacky humor bubbles through the polished narrative . . . Holt doesn't skimp on the flashes of brilliance." SFX

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Another Joyous Romp 22 août 2014
Par Zornk - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
When I first started reading Tom Holt about seven years ago, I was amazed at his crazy obsession with logic. The plots and the worlds he throws you in are completely nutty, but there is that crazy logic going on. And its hilarious the way he goes about describing the way large corporations and law firms (his main targets) go about screwing people over.
This book is no different and is the third in a series starting with Doughnut.
I used to think Holt was another Pratchett in a good way. There are all the fantasy elements, but Holt's books are grounded in everyday life on earth and then something steps in to transport the characters to another dimension, usually an evil corporation or just an ill advised genius as is the case here. I think its high fantasy (Pratchett) where everything is happening in a magical realm versus low fantasy (Holt) where the real world is interjected with magic.There are a lot of jokes and gags, every page, and the sentiments are basically the same, we must save ourselves and the world somehow.
With Holt magic is just science and technology run amok like Frankenstein's monster and then there is the element of how we deal or change with it accordingly. This book more than others starts to examine these changing behaviors. As always with Holt man meets woman and the day is saved, kind of, but here there is also nephew and uncle paving the way for change. Love, I guess is at the bottom of this. Good stuff.

If you're looking for a silly, raucous satire that is plotted like a jigsaw puzzle, you would probably enjoy this book. I've read many of Tom Holt's books and all have been a delight.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Life really isn't like a donut 4 novembre 2014
Par Lucy Kusanagi - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
This book is amazing. It is snarky, sarcastic, and wonderfully humorous. It breathes a very much needed breath of fresh air into the tired sword and sorcery genre, and is full of so many wonderful literary puns that it's worth reading twice just to see what you missed the first time.

Nice imaginative Holt.
Not as well structured as some of his earlier works, but explores the storybook world quite as neatly as Fforde.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Tom Holt at his best 5 janvier 2015
Par Hank Quense - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
Another joyous, off-the-wall story by Tom Holt. The characters in this one include Little-Red-Riding-Hood types, do-good knights in armor, goblin and dwarf hordes,snobby elves and a few characters with different names depending on which side of the donut they are on at that time.
IMHO, this is the best book Holt has written in some time.
