    Tom Holt is the English equivalent of Christopher Moore The big difference is that Mr Moore puts setup punchline sets in his chapters, while Mr Holt is muchsubtle and restrained Douglas Adams is an apt and accurate comparison Where they are alike is that they both are not shy about setting up outrageous situations but then living within the constraints set up They also are both very very funny and well worth reading.This is his first book or at least the earliest of his works that o Tom Holt is the English equivalent of Christopher Moore The big difference is that Mr Moore puts setup punchline sets in his chapters, while Mr Holt is muchsubtle and restrained Douglas Adams is an apt and accurate comparison Where they are alike is that they both are not shy about setting up outrageous situations but then living within the constraints set up They also are both very very funny and well worth reading.This is his first book or at least the earliest of his works that our library has and is a little weak plot wise It is still funny but there are long periods where in an effort to make his plot work it gets less funny.On the other hand it is well worth the read just for the gratuitous shots at Microsoft

    This is a hard one to rate because I really liked it up until the very end, which I found unsatisfying and frankly unbelievable I know that sounds strange, I mean I bought into elves and other worlds and hoards of strange happenings, but in the end Holt seems to get human nature wrong He wouldn t have to change much, but he leaves one or two important questions unasked and I was disappointed, especially since I enjoyed the rest of the book quite a lot.

    I seem to have enjoyed a Tom Holt s novel at one point in the past Having read Little People I can t imagine why Our hero , Mike Higgins is a wimp even by Holt s standards, he s not even a nerd Nerds are smart As usual, he has a hyper competent, smart girlfriend who s too good for him, and as usual he s a Destined Hero who s totally incompetent Other characters don t even get names, except for Daddy George, our villain who has no depth, no motivation and no actual competence.I really n I seem to have enjoyed a Tom Holt s novel at one point in the past Having read Little People I can t imagine why Our hero , Mike Higgins is a wimp even by Holt s standards, he s not even a nerd Nerds are smart As usual, he has a hyper competent, smart girlfriend who s too good for him, and as usual he s a Destined Hero who s totally incompetent Other characters don t even get names, except for Daddy George, our villain who has no depth, no motivation and no actual competence.I really need to learn when to put down a crappy book

    Like others of Holt s books, it starts slow, but this one is even slower because the protagonist is a self proclaimed loser and his life is incredibly boring anyway This never gets better, since any character development is either incredibly sudden or completely lacking The use of the phrase exactly the same except for the differences is used in almost every chapter, and, though its use is comical in some cases, is very annoying The ending keeps in tune with Holt s other books in that it Like others of Holt s books, it starts slow, but this one is even slower because the protagonist is a self proclaimed loser and his life is incredibly boring anyway This never gets better, since any character development is either incredibly sudden or completely lacking The use of the phrase exactly the same except for the differences is used in almost every chapter, and, though its use is comical in some cases, is very annoying The ending keeps in tune with Holt s other books in that it is abrupt, but unlike others that I have read, it only takes a couple paragraphs and is disappointing to say the least There is no wrap up about how this poor sap figures out what to do with his life next, nor if he ever finds a human counterpart to Spike It just ends, sad and in the rain Great concept, poor execution

    My absolute favorite Tom Holt story I only picked it up because there was a note near the Pratchett section of my local bookstore saying that if I liked Pratchett and Douglas Adams I might want to try Holt.How right they were

    I only want to clarify that I did not have this creepy ass cover on my book Funny enough worth my bathroom time.

    What a completely unnecessary ending Some excellent lines, some interesting world building albeit full of plot holes , but the ending was Whaaaa


  8. Brian Brian says:

    The ending devalues the book.

    It s a long time since I read any Tom Holt I like his quirky sense of humour This book concerns a school boy who sees an elf at the bottom of his garden He eventually is led by one such creature to Elfland where he learns that his step father is holding large numbers of elves in his shoe factory where they work for no pay and very little food His constant disappearance and reappearance, often at lengthy periods of human time severely annoys his girlfriend An amusing romp I must read some It s a long time since I read any Tom Holt I like his quirky sense of humour This book concerns a school boy who sees an elf at the bottom of his garden He eventually is led by one such creature to Elfland where he learns that his step father is holding large numbers of elves in his shoe factory where they work for no pay and very little food His constant disappearance and reappearance, often at lengthy periods of human time severely annoys his girlfriend An amusing romp I must read someof Tom Holt s work, haven hitherto only read his books about the sinister J W Wells Co

    I like the author s tone, and he is snarky which I also appreciate However I personally did not like this book The pacing was really slow, the main character was incredibly unlikable, the ending felt like the ending of a short story, not the ending of a novel I ve invested way too much time in All in all, least favorite book I ve read this year I admit others may love this book, but it s not my type.
