I’ve just finished reading this and have so far been on Goodreads and Amazon to post reviews – that’s how good it is.
Oddjobs is a comic fantasy set in Birmingham, England, and relates the trials and tribulations of those poor individuals tasked with ensuring the Apocalypse occurs on time, with the minimum amount of suffering, and that all the paperwork is completed – in triplicate – and handed in before all hell – quite literally (or is that figuratively) – breaks loose.
I honestly can’t recommend it enough. It’s so much fun, it’s well-paced, well-plotted and very well-researched, meaning the stupid sits really happily on top of the clever and the two meld into an excellent whole. It’s Sir Terry Pratchett meets Monty Python and that, really, is all the recommendation any sane person should need.
So please, do yourselves a favour and Buy Oddjobs here
You will also be supporting independent publishing, which is always a good thing.
