Publisher's Summary

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.


What the Critics Say

"Uniquely twisted … cracking gags." (Rob Grant, The Guardian)
"Frantically wacky and wilfully confusing…. gratifyingly clever and very amusing." (Mail on Sunday)
"Frothy, fast and funny." ( cotland on Sunday)

Good follow on to the portable door.

Would you listen to Earth, Air, Fire and Custard again? Why?

Probably not, nothing against the book but has to be great to bother listening to again.

Any additional comments?

Its a good sequel to the portable door but I wouldn't say it was as good as the portable door.

Another winner from Tom Holt

Since reading a couple of Tom Holt's books I discovered Audible and have been enjoying Ray Sawyer's readings. He brings the story and characters in Earth, Air, Fire and Custard to life.

The audible version of a real page turner.
