Publisher's Summary

When the Supreme Being and his son decide that being supreme isn't for them anymore, it's inevitable that things get a bit of a shake-up.

It soon becomes apparent that our new owners, the Venturi brothers, have a very different perspective on all sorts of things. Take Good and Evil, for example. For them it's an outdated concept that never worked particularly well in the first place.

Unfortunately, the sudden disappearance of right and wrong, while welcomed by some, raises certain concerns amongst those still attached to the previous team's management style.

In particular there's one of the old gods who didn't move out with the others. A reclusive chap, he lives somewhere up north, and only a handful even believe in him.

But he's watching. And he really does need to know if you've been naughty or nice.

Out of this World

Irreverent maybe. Not laugh out loud but funny. Classic twist of rolls. Holt pushes the bounderies to another realm. Loved it.

Disappointing 😔

I love Tom Holt I have all his books so I was super excited for a new release but sadly no, It lost me i'm afraid it just bored me and i got 1 hr from the end and couldn't be bothered to finish it.

Hilarious, touching and superbly written

Tom Holt is the funniest writer in Britain who doesn't live in Gorseinon. I've been a fan for years, so please don't expect an objective review. The thing I like most about Tom's novels is the way he manages to throw the unexpected at you without breaking stride. It's not often a novellist can push all my buttons, but Tom does it with ease. If you like humour mixed with your Fantasy, give him a try. I promise you will not be disappointed.

Truly awful - wish I hadn't wasted the credit

I have been a fan of Tom Holt for many years but this was definitely not up to previous standards.

I have listened to dozens of audiobooks and rarely fail to finish one. With this book, I couldn't get more than a couple of hours in.

There is little by way of plot and what there is progresses at a pedestrian pace. The characters are two-dimensional and I could not feel the least interest in their exploits.

The narrator does his best with the material but overall this is simply disappointing.

Original and entertaining

Imaginative, original, funny and thoughtful. Combined with a great performance it was thoroughly enjoyable. Perhaps a sequel in the future?
