The Portable Door

review The Portable Door 103 But they're not of course They're away with the goblins Tom Holt Master of the Comic Fantasy Novel cordially invites you to join him in his world of madness by reading his next hilarious masterpie. halfway through this book i was ready to give it 5 stars tom holt could be the writer offspring of Christopher Moore and JK Rowling the main character is a dynamic loser stuck in his own head the premise had promise of being a really fun mystery to solve what kind of company was he working for and the clues are whimsical and spirited items in the basement storage ranging from pop culture surprises to literary references turned real life objects promising to reveal a delightful adventurebut the big reveal was a little less surprising than i would have liked less whimsical less spirited all the wonderful lead up clues in storage went untouched the main character s emergent magical powers seemed overdone and yet anti climatic the title object seemed contradictory in terms of space time continuum usage the plot seemed plotless in that the characters nor the reader didn t really even know they were in the middle of a plot until the end at which time most of the odd occurrences were connected and explained but in the midst of them i just felt bumped around but not a way that made me sympathetic for the main charactersso it was 5 stars until page 183 maybe someone else can pick up from there and use some of the great stuff in the beginning to build an entirely new plot

review The Portable Door 103 Ctable establishment now paying his salary is in fact a front for a deeply sinister organization that has a mighty peculiar agenda It seems that half the time his bosses are away with the fairies. I ve come late to the Tom Holt party but I m glad I finally made it This is the first book of his that I have read and I definitely intend to try It is the story of Paul Carpenter and how he takes a mysterious job in a mysterious firm where mysterious goings on occur I found it always interesting a nice uick read and lightly humourous I wouldn t say there were many laugh out loud moments but I chuckled than once or twiceI think one of my favourite passages can best sum up the wit and wryly weird writing that Tom Holt employs There s this to be said for being hungover if you ve got a job to do that involves substantial levels of ambient weirdness it helps because you can t be bothered to notice stuff that under other circumstances would come close to frying your synapses Treasure maps Czarist bonds a case of stuffed dodos Scarlett O Hara s birth certificate two flattened and deformed silver bullet heads in an old matchbox Baedeker s guide to Atlantis seventeenth edition 1902 the autograph score of Schubert s Unfinished Symphony with Das Ende written neatly at the foot of the last page three boxes of moon rocks and so it continues in this veinI enjoyed the fact that Tom Holt is clever in his writing and assumes that you too must be clever because the vocabulary used is superb and had me scratching my head a few timesThe characterisation is brief but effective through simple repetition we know that Paul is a bit of a loser but with a good heart while Sophie is a prickly but ultimately likeable character The various partners of the firm they join are wildly entertainingMy main criticism is with the pacing of the book The first half of it went fairly slowly as befits the unfolding of a mystery but the last third was breathlessly fast and tied up very neatlyOther than that this was a fine book and I look forward to of Holt s work

review The Portable Door 103 Starting a new job is always stressful but when Paul Carpenter arrives at the office of JW Wells he has no idea what trouble lies in store Because he is about to discover that the apparently respe. I don t actually find Tom Holt funny He has some humorous moments but for the most part his sense of humor doesn t mesh with mine So the books of his I enjoy tend to be the ones with strong world building and an interesting plot which is the case with the JW Wells books I felt like re reading this one recently just for fun and enjoyed it just as muchI think this is the third time around Paul is gormless in an entertaining sympathetic way and Sophie is fascinating as a counter romantic heroine I like the concept of a business catering to those who need magic particularly how pragmatic they are Holt comes up with some clever magical inventions particularly the titular portable door though you could technically call it an improvement on the portable hole and the rules governing the use of love potions Overall an enjoyable read something to while away an evening and I may re read the next ones soon as well

    EBOOK DOWNLOAD (The Portable Door) À Tom Holt Oh man what fun A very British fantastical comedy The fantasy part is woven in very slowly and very carefully so you almost don't notice it's happening until you look around and everything is swords and sorcerers and epic duels instead of your dull office and the missing stapler and the photocopier that never seems to wo
