Inhaltsangabe

J.W. Wells seemed to be a respectable establishment, but the company now paying Paul Carpenter's salary is in fact a deeply sinister organisation with a mighty peculiar management team. Paul thought he was getting the hang of it (particularly when he fell head over heels for his strangely alluring colleague Sophie), but death is never far away when you work at J.W. Wells, unlike the stapler - that's always going AWOL. Our love-struck hero is about to discover that custard is definitely in the eye of the beholder. And that it really stings.

Tom Holt's exceedingly comic fantasies are populated with evil goblins, annoying sprites, and people like us. However, it's not always possible to tell the difference.

Crazy - but not on a good way

First of all I have to mention I feel a bit bad for writing this negative review. This is because I like Tom Holt and I really want this franchise to blossom. But while I was listening to this Audiobook I constantly thought: "Why does it not end?" It just kept dragging on. It is difficult to point my finger at what I did not like. If forced to, I would say its how the story works: instead of gradually evolving it continuously rewrote itself.
