Publisher's Summary

Polly, an average, completely ordinary property lawyer, is convinced she's losing her mind. Someone keeps drinking her coffee. And talking to her clients. And doing her job. And when she goes to the dry cleaner's to pick up her dress for the party, it's not there. Not the dress - the dry cleaner's. And then there are the chickens who think they are people. Something strange is definitely going on - and it's going to take more than a magical ring to sort it out.

Some magic you can believe in!

This is the 4th or 5th title of Tom Holt's that I've had the pleasure of experiencing but the first I've had as an audiobook. Either way it's another excellent story where even the plainest of characters have the most adventures and you are kept guessing and wondering until the end of the book where the mysteries are revealed in the most inventive and amusing of ways.

While listening to this one, i was asked about the story and anyone who hadn't read one of these before looked at me in complete bewilderment as i spoke of pigs and chickens and things that seemed downright silly. To anyone who has read any in his collection however it's only expected that the weird and wonderful will certainly come to life.

I enjoyed Ray Sawyer's narration and interpretation of each character, this defiantly helped in building a picture of each of them individually and aiding the escapism which is always something i crave in books, paper or audio.

Having read a few of Holt's books prior to downloading this, I was pleased to be able to hear that characters from other titles were still involved in 'the Trade'.

This is a book which can be enjoyed by anyone whether you've experienced Holt before or not, you must be willing however to open your mind to magic, mystery and farm animals that have more sense than perhaps you first thought!

life, liberty and the persuit of sausages

This is the first Tom Holt book I have listened to and I couldn't put it down.Well drawn characters in extraordinary situations, entertaining and funny, it's for those who like something completely different. If you like Terry Pratchett or Neil Gaiman you may enjoy this.
