Kurzbeschreibung

Enter the mind of Walton Cumberfield, an amateur gas and electricity meter-reader who is about to discover a cow that is independent of the space-time continuum. The debut novel by comedian and writer Tom Moran, Dinosaurs and Prime Numbers is like nothing else you'll ever read - beautifully bonkers and bizarrely brilliant. It has to be read to be believed.

"A sparky and funny novel with some wonderful writing in it." - Tom Chalmers, Legend Press

In June, 2014, Dinosaurs and Prime Numbers became the first ever recipient of The Guardian Legend Self-Published Book of the Month Award.

5.0 von 5 Sternen What a start 8. Januar 2013
Von paul little - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Moran has to be congratulated on this work of ludicrous insanity. I was convinced that the author must somehow be the melding of Robert Rankin and Ricky Gervais. This work runs so fast from one piece of hilarity to the next that the global plot becomes secondary and yet it hangs together. Moran has created lovable characters and blended satire and fantasy so well that I would imagine that anyone who is into this genre at all will be very happy to have read this work.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Bloody brilliant! 28. Februar 2013
Von Michael Harker - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This book captivated me. I read the entire thing with an English accent. It made it seem far more authentic as I'm an American and I have never used "bloke" in conversation before. I can't wait for the sequel, but I suppose I'll have to.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Bonkers - But Best Enjoyed in Small Servings 27. Oktober 2014
Von Pop Bop - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Mr. Cumberfield is clueless, socially inept, and just skewed enough that his observations are often charming, funny, or thought provoking, (or all three at once). The author has mastered the art of pointed silliness, and that is no small feat. But, just as one is advised against eating an entire box of chocolates in one sitting, it seems that this book lends itself to browsing. That way you can skip the nougat centers and really enjoy the dark chocolate ones with raspberry cream filling.

There is a plot, but there are numbered pages as well, and, while I found the plot clever, either would serve the purpose of moving you from the beginning of the book to the end. I mostly enjoyed the good-humored mood of the book, the occasionally arresting bit of idiot savant insight, and especially some of the set pieces. For example, the recounting of Mr. Cumberfield's visit to a Retirement Home to put on one of his original toy theater productions is just plain brilliant. It is brutal, hilarious, and a bit wistful, all at the same time. Bits like this go beyond just silliness or the Amelia Bedelia formula, (which is, after all, just the same joke over and over again). And, behind the blithe and amiable gormlessness of some of Mr. Cumberfield's observations there is just a hint of edge and vinegar, which reminds you that this is not simply a book of shallow tomfoolery. One begins to appreciate the craft and care that goes in to creating something that appears so light and airy and frivolous.

But, not to over analyze or over praise. This is an usual and rather unique book with tremendous charm and appeal and a very sly and subversive sense of humor. It's sweet and tasty and well worth sampling.

Please note that I found this book while browsing Amazon Kindle freebies. I have no connection at all to either the author or the publisher of this book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Clever, funny, and original 19. Juni 2014
Von James Bailey - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I first learned about this book through a story on the Guardian's website, honoring "Dinosaurs and Prime Numbers" as its first self-published book of the month (June 2014). Sounded interesting, so I found it on Amazon and started reading. I was hooked straight off.

Walton Cumberfield is an amateur detective and something of an idiot, albeit clever when it counts. He and his lodger Roger take an epic trip through time to solve the mystery of why an old man broke into their house after Walton beats him to death with a Guinness Book of World Records (2008 edition). There's romance, danger, intrigue, poetry, and a space-time independent cow. And a lot of laughs.

Throw "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy," "A Confederacy of Dunces," and "Dumb and Dumber" into a blender and you get a feel for "Dinosaurs and Prime Numbers." Walton is a witty and interactive narrator, who speaks directly to the reader at times to explain things, often for comic effect. It's definitely silly at times, and if that doesn't appeal to you, maybe this isn't your book. I loved it, however. As I read I kept thinking of who I knew that might enjoy this so I could recommend it to them. I will definitely be reading the next book in the series when it comes out.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Buyer Be(a)ware! 5. Juni 2014
Von Ben - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
The cover and title caught my attention. I wasn't sure what to expect, which is why it took me some 6 months to start reading it. The beginning was strong and had me laughing and sharing every scene with who ever was closest at the time as it was too funny not to share. I was so jealous I hadn't been the writer. I wanted to post a review right away but decided to finish the book first. The story played out excellently and ended well enough. I have recommended this book to a number of friends as a need to read. I am still jealous I did not write it.
