hugely inventive and highly amusing ...His sharply observed dialogue and the desire to think round corners and u-bends distinguish Holt's books. He has the ability to make the reader laugh out loud and should be treasured. (COMPUTERCROWSNEST)
A definite must for all fans of comic fantasy (ENIGMA)
The jokes are delicious (SFX)
The best similes since Douglas Adams. Buy it for heaven's sake (SFX)
The course of true love never runs smooth - particularly when there's a goblin in the way! A wickedly funny new comic fantasy novel.See all Product Description

Mr Holt is a captivating writer. he steals your time so effortlessly you don't even notice it until it's 4 o'clock in the morning and you know your alarmclock is going off at 6...
while reading this book my husband constantly had to ask me what's so funny, cause i kept laughing load, and calling mr Holt a sick person. his writing combined with my own vivid fantasy and vizualisation made reading 'the portable door' an experience. I'm looking forward to reading 'in your dreams' once i get hold of a copy...
The story twists and turns as you would expect from Mr. Holt and some of the throw-aways are beautiful. Try and count the references to other fantasy/comic fantasy books.
Overall a great read but only gets 4 stars because he has written better - see "Who's Afraid of Beowulf" and "Valhalla" or my own favourite "Flying Dutch"

I've read this book several times...many times. Not for a few years now I must admit, as I hardly have the time these days, but really that's neither here nor there. Read morePublished 14 months ago by N. Gosney
It's okay but not exactly that funny or interesting. Couldn't help feeling it was aimed at teenagers or thereabouts. Dont think I could try reading another by TH.Published 15 months ago by Timothy A. Connell
I love Tom Holt books, this is a great read and I enjoyed it immensely. In my opinion, "The Perfect Mousetrap" and "You don't need to be evil to work here, but it helps" are better... Read morePublished 18 months ago by Anna Spooner
