4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but not as good as some earlier work?, 20 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Sausages (Kindle Edition)
Tom Holt is usually quite good at building a lead character, or set of leads, and whisking you away for the ride with them. I don't feel this book does that. The characters seem to lack depth or you just can't call them "mates". It also lacks the atmosphere generated in stories like "The Portable Door". But maybe that's just me.

It's amusing in places, but not laugh out loud, and mostly confusing, but maybe that's the point.

This would be a great read on a long plane journey, or anywhere that you will read it in big chunks rather than a few pages here and there. You need to be alert and taking it all in to follow the thread. Still, it's miles better than a lot of other stuff out there. If you are new to Tom Holt, don't start on this one. Try "The Portable Door" or "Expecting Someone Taller".
