Publisher's Summary

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.

A weird one but worth it

It took me a little while to get into this story, but once I did, I found it fun and interesting. Really rather a delightful listen. The narrator was good too - brought the fun out in the book! If you want something fun, a little odd, and imaginative, give this a go.

Alternative!

I have just listened to another of Tom Holt's books, and I like his style, and his very quirky take on life! I liked this book, too and I have the next one in the series in my library. Some parts are very funny, other parts are just silly, but it grabs you and you just have to listen to find the answer! Narration is good, without any annoying lilts that sometimes iritate me. It's not "Discworld" but it's not far behind!

Best belly laugh I've had in ages, from Tom Holt.

I was dubious about listening to Tom Holts The portable door as I had previously read the book & enjoyed it so much that I didn't want to be disappointed which usually happens when watching a DVD of a previously read book, however the quite the reverse happened, I could not disconnect much to the angst of my family. they sat in growing irritation & grew rapidly thiner due to them not being able to feed themselves, (that will teach them to find the food closet themselves). The narrative was far better than even my reading & Tom Holts quirky humour had me belly laughing all the way through.The story line of a luckless geek battling with the unimaginable was priceless,
