Friday 56 – The Moose Paradox by Antti Tuomainen

Welcome to Friday 56! Hosted by Freda’s Voice, you turn to page 56 or 56% in any book or reading device and pick a sentence that grabs you.

My book of the week is The Moose Paradox by Antti Tuomainen (click for link to Goodreads).

Book Description From Goodreads:

“Insurance mathematician Henri Koskinen has finally restored order both to his life and to YouMeFun, the adventure park he now owns, when a man from the past appears – and turns everything upside down again. More problems arise when the park’s equipment supplier is taken over by a shady trio, with confusing demands. Why won’t Toy of Finland Ltd sell the new Moose Chute to Henri when he needs it as the park’s main attraction?

Meanwhile, Henri’s relationship with artist Laura has reached breaking point, and, in order to survive this new chaotic world, he must push every calculation to its limits, before it’s too late…

Absurdly funny, heart-stoppingly poignant and full of nail-biting suspense, The Moose Paradox is the second instalment in the critically acclaimed, pitch-perfect Rabbit Factor Trilogy and things are messier than ever…”


“‘We started putting it together before six. They asked specifically. They came by here last night when I was closing up and asked when I could start work. You know I like to get to work early. The early business bird catches the business worm. That’s my new motto.’

I have nothing to say about Kristian’s motto. It’s nonsensical, that goes without saying, but it isn’t the only nonsensical thing in front of me right now and isn’t a device the customers dislike, taking up room in the park. That would be the Crocodile Canyon.”

This is at 56% of the book. I was quite lucky and managed to find this quote that showed off how the character thinks and also gives a good representation of the tone of the book.

I am on the Blog Tour for this book on 31 October, so keep your eyes peeled for my review!
