'... Hitchhiker's Guide aficionados will relish every line.' - Publishers Weekly 'Holt has a touch that is equally breezy and serious: the story's twists and revelations feel like Douglas Adams emulating David Mamet.' - Publishers Weekly From the moment the first Homo Sapiens descended from the trees, possibly onto their heads, humanity has striven towards civilisation. Fire. The Wheel. Running Away from furry things with more teeth than one might reasonably expect - all are testament to man's ultimate ascendancy. It is a noble story, a triumph of intelligence over adversity and so, of course, complete and utter fiction. For one man has discovered the hideous truth: that humanity's ascent has been ruthlessly guided by a small gang of devious frogs.

Another solid offering by Mr. Holt. Funny and the plot is probably more solid than some of his other stories.

Worth the read. ( )

Fun romp. Lacks credibility. ( )

The plot was interesting, imaginative and unexpected. Unfortunately it started to get too convoluted near the end. Also there were a lot of British references that I didn't understand. It was a fun read, but I wouldn't consider it a must read book. ( )

“If you can’t believe what you see and hear, how can you ever really know anything’s real” Honest John

In a world of clones, telepathy, magic and frogs – knowing what and who is real becomes increasingly problematic. Tom Holt skewers evolution, God, Microsoft, and the princess kissing the frog fairy tale all in one very ‘rivet’ing story. ( )

Her name was Philippa Levens, fifth marchioness of Ipswich; and as she smiled at him, her eyes were as clear and bright and brown as they'd been on the day she'd died, wearing her fire like a bridal veil, on the seventeenth of June 1602.
