Product Description

Product Description

Enter the mind of Walton Cumberfield, an amateur gas and electricity meter-reader who is about to discover a cow that is independent of the space-time continuum. The debut novel by comedian and writer Tom Moran, Dinosaurs and Prime Numbers is like nothing else you'll ever read - beautifully bonkers and bizarrely brilliant. It has to be read to be believed.

"A sparky and funny novel with some wonderful writing in it." - Tom Chalmers, Legend Press

In June, 2014, Dinosaurs and Prime Numbers became the first ever recipient of The Guardian Legend Self-Published Book of the Month Award.

Walton Cumberfield is the kind of socially inept nerd that we have all met at one time or another and he makes a unique and brilliant lead character. With his tag-along lodger, Roger he becomes embroiled in a time-travelling murder mystery involving cheese, ghosts, OAP hitmen and and a cow in Budleigh Salterton..... The plot is excellent, the time-travel is done perfectly and there are plenty of laugh-out-loud moments and groan-out-loud awful puns. I really did not want this to finish - it is very, very good.
My only criticism is an overuse of simile. I personally think good fiction should never use simile but it can have a place in comedy when used to make the scene funnier, however it is used too liberally in this book, and that's a shame - still 5 stars though.....

5.0 out of 5 stars Fast moving fun 30 May 2013
By A Maurs
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is brilliant and ridiculous all at the same time. I admit it took me a while to get tuned into the author's style but after a couple of chapters I was hooked. There are some brilliant characters that I would very much like to meet again in a future book. An ingenious fast moving plot. Don't worry if you don't understand one joke as there will be another one coming at you in the next sentence. This would make a brilliant TV series. If Walton & Roger his lodger ever go on any more adventures you can count me in.

5.0 out of 5 stars Weird but absorbing 1 Mar 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A sort of cross between Lewis Carroll and Douglas Adams. It is either a simple amusing tale or a work of intellectual genius. I still can't work out which.
Whatever, it's an absorbing and enjoyable read which I recommend to anyone with a taste for the unusual.

I was recommended this from a friend as being a light-hearted, well written comedy from a talented new author.

Have to say that it has been absolutely brilliant from start to finish. Tom has a remarkable and unique ability to make you genuinely laugh out loud throughout the book. Going to start the follow on 'A Scandal in Spixworth' soon.

Until then I'm just gonna kick it back 'old school'. (#BigLOLs)

5.0 out of 5 stars Time travel, humour and quite, quite mad 5 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Tom Moran has crafted an excellent time-travel thriller/mystery. It's the characters he's filled his novel with, however, that take centre stage. Walton and his lodger Roger (I'm not making this up, he really _is_ Roger the Lodger) discover that a certain type of cheese allows one to travel through time. The beauty of the novel is that their journey, apart from being through time, is quite an ordinary one, but their reactions to the situations they find themselves in caused me to laugh out loud throughout the novel. I don't want to say any more for fear of spoiling the book, but suffice to say if you like your time travel twisty and turn-y, with just a hint of an author being completely detached from reality, then this is the book for you :-)

5.0 out of 5 stars super story 12 Aug 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a very clever and thoroughly entertaining time travel story. Tom Moran has addressed the anomolies normally associated with time travel in an amusing and fast paced tale. I am really looking forward to getting the next book when it comes out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superbly well written and hilarious! 17 Nov 2014
By KParr
Format:Paperback
This is a very cleverly written time travel book, which is hilarious. Dinosaurs and Prime Numbers is one of those wonderfully rare books where the days seem to take forever because all you really want to do is sit down and read this marvelous book! I have laughed out load too many times to count!

I have until now not come across a book where the character has it’s own Facebook page with updates in the book and I am delighted to have found Walton Cumberfield on Twitter!

I can’t wait for the next book in the trilogy and cannot recommend Dinosaurs and Prime Numbers highly enough. Tom Moran is a fantastic writer.

Very funny, I couldn't put it down. Interesting story threads which weaved together nicely, with a hint of Tom Holt to them. Look forward to the next installment!
