Of all the author's [a:Tom Holt|9766|Tom Holt|https://d.gr-assets.com/authors/1246502762p2/9766.jpg] books that I've read so far, this is my favorite. In some ways it felt derivative of both Doug Adams', Hitchhiker series and the cult movie "Dark Star", but even if everything isn't completely original, it is still enjoyable and worth the read. ( )

Apparently I stopped Holt one book too soon as he has FINALLY written a different plot. ( )

What if a bomb were intelligent and developed a conscience?

I have not read a Tom Holt book before. There was a lot of humour in this novel and the storyline was intelligent also. Okay so some of the jokes go just that wrong side of corniness at times but mostly they tickled my funny bone. Fast-paced and full of entertaining characters without being pretentious at all in its sci-finess it was a pleasurable read from start to finish. I will definitely be looking out for a few more Tom Holt books. ( )

Tom Holt goes scifi! Ostar is a planet inhabited by intelligent dogs who keep humans as pampered pets. Ostar is getting bombarded by music from Earth (which the Ostars call Dirt) and they are determined to wipe out the Dirters so they can regain their sanity. They send a planet-busting highly intelligent bomb, but it fails. A second bomb is sent. This one is wary and searches for the defense shield that must have destroyed the first bomb. To research further, the intelligence pits itself into a probe and transports to Dirt to search for the shield. Named Mark Twain, it ruins into a blonde woman named Lucy Pavlov who is the CEO of the largest computer company in the world. Oddly, Lucy can't recall anything that happened more than five years ago. By this time, the plot has become too complicated to explore here.
For Tom Holt fans, the book is a rare scifi treat since he usually writes fantasy.
Four out of five stars.
