Book Description

Oh Goblin, Where Art Thou? (or ‘Oh bugger! We’re Lost!’) is a tale so brimming with madcap action and adventure that it’s sure to spill over into laughter. It follows the story of Odysseus and Donk, two goblins who are accompanied by a mouse called Frankie Soft.

The book opens with the trio of companions enslaved and working in a quarry. Managing to escape more by luck than judgement, they then come across danger in the desert.

Meeting a tribe of nomadic goblins, they discover that their fame has spread far and wide due to their exploits prior to becoming slaves. ‘Oddy’ then tells the nomads the tale of how they became lost in the wilderness and finally ended up in shackles, a tale that includes encounters with a Cyclops, a trio of tutu-wearing Sirens and a sea monster with a surprising phobia, amongst others.

A highly entertaining read that is very loosely based on Homer’s epic poem The Odyssey. This is a hilarious short novel with many great comedy moments.

More About the Author

With over fifty titles published since 2005, British writer Ed Page (or Edwin Page as he's known to readers of his serious fiction and non-fiction) is one of the most prolific authors of the early 21st Century. Having written in at least four non-fiction genres and eight fiction genres, he is also one of the most diverse.

Ed wrote his first two books in 1995 and both were comedy-science fiction novels. Though they were not of a publishable standard, it is this genre that remains his first love when it comes to writing. 'The stories write themselves,' states Mr Page, 'and the comedy arises naturally as the characters take on a life of their own.' It his characters that make Ed's work so compelling, each one drawing the reader in as they embark on crazy adventures, quests and wild travels. The fact he writes his books without any advance planning, allowing them to 'write themselves' in a state of Flow, means that his work has a natural and organic feel that appeals to many readers.

As well as humorous fiction, Mr Page also writes jokes for the greetings card industry. In this capacity, he works for companies such as Hallmark and you may have even bought a birthday card with one of his jokes on it.

If you want to see the scale and range of his other books, take a look at his Edwin Page author page on Amazon. There you'll find a wide range of dark fiction, women's fiction and non-fiction titles available, all written by this intriguing author.

1.0 out of 5 stars Vulgar and Crude. 12 Oct. 2014
By Wendy
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I hate to disagree with others that gave a five star rating, but I thought this book awful. There were the usual mistakes throughout - spellling, grammar etc, and personally, I thought the book vulgar. It could have been written by a ten year old who thought it was great fun to think up crude names for people.

I also didn't like the casual abuse of animals. I thought that htis book had quite a lot of violent undertones, covered by crudeness and vulgarity.

You may have guessed by now that I thought the book truly revolting, and I would never, ever read something written by this author again. I obviously don't share the same lavatorial humour that he does.

4.0 out of 5 stars And hilarity ensues... 23 Jan. 2015
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The entire reading of this kept the thought in my head, "If Douglas Adams or Tom Holt took on the Odyssey, this is the sort of thing I'd imagine would come of it." Thoroughly entertaining and irreverent; the elements of the traditional story are peppered with absurdity and hilarity, this was a really fun, quick read!
