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


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.

HASH(0x8b4a25ac) étoiles sur 5 Another Joyous Romp 22 août 2014
Par Zornk - Publié sur
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.

HASH(0x8b4a27f8) étoiles sur 5 Good Enough, but not great. 22 juin 2015
Par Robert - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I've bought a large number of Mr. Holt's books over the years. Most have been good, or at least good enough. A few, and I think this is one of them, are just filler. He introduces some interesting plot devices here, and a few of the characters elicit a laugh or two, but this is not his best work. That said, it also isn't his worst.
If you are a fan, I would recommend reading it, otherwise you may want to start with an earlier novel by this author.

HASH(0x8b4a27bc) étoiles sur 5 Holt is entertaining as always. 27 mai 2015
Par Jessica Weissman - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Tom Holt continues on his merry way, satirizing the modern world through the lens of his fertile mind. His stock in trade is funny satirical fantasy. Usually the characterization is none too deep, but he does manage to make you care whether the protagonist gets out of trouble and gets whatever he wants in the way of money and romance.

This one has a few more twists than recent Holt, and is supremely entertaining. Don't expect Pratchett-like world building or social commentary and you won't be disappointed. Genre fiction for people who don't like thrillers or horror or crime.

HASH(0x8b4a2ab0) étoiles sur 5 What if ... 24 août 2015
Par wiredweird - Publié sur
Format: Broché
... all those fairy tales were real? Or real enough, at least - and made real by some evil corporate type making a fast buck (or megabuck) from the characters. That's pretty much how this one goes. We follow some sly wolves, a dragon-slaying knight, a Riding Hood of a sort, and a witless prince through to the logically illogical end. In short, it's all the things Holt does best, starting with A) the classic stories and B) standing them on their heads. For example, the wolves fairly beg to be slain by the fortuitously placed woodsmen. Then, the Riding Hood knows way too much that she shouldn't, and knows that she shouldn't. The dragon-slayer makes a tidy living in the pest-control business (with bounty by the pound), all the better because of an inexplicable and ecologically improbable outbreak of dragons. All in all, a wacky bit of amusement that recalls (but doesn't quite rise to) Douglas Adams.

But, by strange coincidence, I bought this at this at the same time as Scalzi's Redshirts. Despite great differences between the two, they center on a common plot device. In each, the major characters act on mysterious knowledge that pops into their minds at bizarrely opportune times. They act completely out of character, often against their own interest, even knowing they're doing it. It seemed like an odd device in the first book, but a striking coincidence when I came across it twice in a row.

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.
