Tom Holt

Recommended Posts

So has anyone read anything by him? I was in the Kindle store looking up books by Jasper Fforde, and quite a few of Tom Holt's things popped up. They seem to be quirky and whimsical with a little touch of dark the way Fforde's things are. Any thoughts? I'm always looking for a new author.

I was recommended him off the back of my liking Terry Pratchett, and read several of his novels but the only one I actually liked was Snow White and the Seven Samurai. The rest I didn't enjoy at all. To be honest, I wasn't a fan of his style of writing, as well as the storylines, so it was a lose-lose situation for me. (

I read Expecting Someone Taller a very long time ago, so I don't remember much about it now. 

 

I think it was okay, but it didn't encourage me to try any of Holt's other novels at the time. 

 

I occasionally think I should give him another try.

Hmm...it looks like rather lukewarm. That doesn't usually happen around here! It seems like he's written quite a few things of the same feel, so reading one might give me an idea of his style. I suppose I'll start with whatever is at the library tonight. Thanks for the insight, everyone!

The author's name sounded familiar, and I was sure poppyshake's read at least one of his books, called Life, Liberty & the Pursuit of Sausages, her review of it made me add the book to my wishlist. I hope poppyshake doesn't mind me speaking for her, but here's a link to her review, she seemed to enjoy the novel! :)
