'Tom Holt's Doughnut presents a roller-coaster ride through the world of physics and the origins of the universe.' - Library Journal

'One for physicists as well as Krispy Kreme-loving policemen.' - T3

The doughnut is a thing of beauty.
A circle of fried doughy perfection.
A source of comfort in trying times, perhaps.
For Theo Bernstein, however, it is far, far more.

Things have been going pretty badly for Theo Bernstein. An unfortunate accident at work lost him his job (and his work involved a Very Very Large Hadron Collider, so he's unlikely to get it back). His wife has left him. And he doesn't have any money.

Before Theo has time to fully appreciate the pointlessness of his own existence, news arrives that his good friend Professor Pieter van Goyen, renowned physicist and Nobel laureate, has died.

By leaving the apparently worthless contents of his safety deposit to Theo, however, the professor has set him on a quest of epic proportions. A journey that will rewrite the laws of physics. A battle to save humanity itself.

This is the tale of a man who had nothing and gave it all up to find his destiny - and a doughnut.

From one of the best-loved comic writers in fantasy fiction comes another absurdly witty science fiction title - perfect for fans of Douglas Adams or Terry Pratchett.

Review:

"Wacky humor bubbles through the polished narrative ... Holt doesn't skimp on the flashes of brilliance."-- "SFX"

"Uniquely twisted...cracking gags..."
-- The Guardian (UK)

"Frantically wacky and willfully confusing...gratifyingly clever and very amusing."-- Mail on Sunday

"Tom Holt's "Doughnut" presents a roller-coaster ride through the world of physics and the origins of the universe." ""Library Journal"""

""Blonde Bombshell" is a clever, funny, tirelessly inventive, apocalyptic leg-hump of a book."
"Christopher Moore, "New York Times "bestselling author""

"Tom Holt's Doughnut presents a roller-coaster ride through the world of physics and the origins of the universe." Library Journal"

"A light read from the prolific humorist; a romp round the multiverse." SFX on Doughnut"

"Like the deep-fried snack after which it's named, this sic-fi novel is sweet and fun." Sun (UK) on Doughnut"

"Holt adds to his repertoire of comedic sf, one of the most difficult genera acts to master. Theo is an engaging hero; his brilliance is counteracted by his laziness and his compassion, which is matched by his sense of survival. Place this title alongside Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman's Good Omens, Pratchett's "Discworld" series, and the absurdist works of mainstream authors such as John Barth and Gilbert Sorrentino." Library Journal (Starred Review) on Doughnut"

"One for physicists as well s Krispy Kreme-loving policemen." T3 on Doughnut"
