Had a bad day at work? Paul Carpenter, a new junior employee at J.W. Wells & Co., is having some for the records. As he sorts through interminable piles of spreadsheets, finds bauxite mines in aerial photos without knowing how he did it, and cleans up a strong room full of bizarre treasures, Paul is trying not to figure out his company's secrets--until goblins seize the girl he loves. Tom Holt sends up the workplace with a style reminiscent of Douglas Adams and Terry Pratchett. Raymond Sawyer sounds serious but stays playful as he reads the whimsical narrative. His Paul sounds a little too laid-back, but the goblins and other strange beings at J.W. Wells are spot-on. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 05]
