Antti Tuomainen: The Moose Paradox

Today I’m taking part in the blog tour for The Moose Paradox. My review is written with thanks to Anne Cater for inviting me on the blog tour and to Orenda Books for my copy of the book.


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…


When I read The Rabbit Factor last year, I commented that I would love to see a sequel and here we are! I was so excited to read The Moose Paradox and see how things at the adventure park were coming along. I was not disappointed! The novel begins with a bang and from there, we are taken on a wonderful adventure that it was hard to tear myself away from.

Henri Koskinen is a brilliant character. His preference for logic over emotion means that he deals with the things that come his way in a slightly different way to those around him, but I wanted everything to work out for him. He values his staff and they all have interesting characteristics which meant I enjoyed getting to know them better in this novel. I absolutely adore Henri’s relationship with Laura and I was rooting for them to stay together too. 

The Moose Paradox is full of adventure and I love the humour with which the author writes. The story is by no means conventional but I was always engaged and I always found something to make me laugh, even in scenes that would otherwise be quite dark. 

I feel the ending of The Moose Paradox teases a third visit to the adventure park. Please tell me I’m right? 

The Moose Paradox is available from Amazon.
