Only 1 left in stock (more on the way). Only 3 left in stock (more on the way). This is the second book by Tom Holt that I have read. The first was "Falling Sideways" and I'm grateful that the plot of this one was easier to keep track of. Frank Carpenter owns a portable door and goes about his life zipping through time and space at will, occasionally making millions of dollars working for an insurance company.
The Better Mousetrap book. I'm glad we could have this talk. Shelves: fantasy, comedy. The usual Tom Holt fun and games as he riffs off the fantasy world again. Some of the jokes are becoming more contemporary so they date more easily which is a bit of a shame, but not enough to detract from the enjoyment of the book.
Equalising her weight on both feet, she reached out towards the cat’s neck. It was only a few inches from her hand. She reached a little further and felt her elbow brush against a branch.

However, THE BETTER MOUSETRAP rates a terrific read
However, THE BETTER MOUSETRAP rates a terrific read. Tom Holt is a terribly funny British novelist, maybe not quite as popular as Terry Pratchett or Douglas Adams (or as resonant), but he's got his moments, when his wildly imaginative plot twists leave you reeling but big grinning. In reading The Better Mousetrap, I discovered that I had unwittingly joined a series somewhere in the middle. The book stands fine on its own. It follows the misadventures of an unimaginative "beta male" who possesses a portable door. Spread it on the wall, and walk through it to go anywhere in space and time.

Holt's quirky characters and whimsical voice successfully infuse life into this entertaining romantic comedy' - Publishers Weekly. It touches all our lives; our triumphs and tragedies, our proudest achievements, our most traumatic disasters. Alloyed of love and fear, death and fire and the inscrutable acts of the gods, insurance is indeed the force that binds the universe together. Hardly surprising, therefore, that Frank.
