Review

Another imaginative and seriously funny novel from a master of the humorous fantasy genre. (BOOKS MAGAZINE)

Only a writer like Holt could make this work quite so well, and he does with great skill. Lots of fun. (MANCHESTER EVENING NEWS)

Book Description

From one of the best-loved comic writers in fantasy fiction comes another absurdly witty title - perfect for fans of Douglas Adams or Terry Pratchett

I was looking over the Tom Holt books and i noticed that this one had an average rating of only 3 stars, and i am very confused. I decided that people thinking of buying are probably being misinformed, and that i should review this book.
It was the first Tom Holt book i read, and i enjoyed it from front to back. Unlike most books, there was not a single point at which the storyline dragged. Holt has a sort of relaxed Terry Pratchet writing style, which commonly involves many intertwining and hilarious storylines. Paint Your Dragon is no exception to the rule, and remains one of my favourite Tom Holt books.
As an indicator of the books' standard; after reading Paint Your Dragon, i have subsequently bought over 20 Tom Holt books. And i have enjoyed every single one.

Having misunderstood the rules, the Dragon was going around thinking killing folk was what he was supposed to do. Upon realising his mistake he agrees to a showdown with Dragon George Cody in a battle of good versus evil. However, match-fixing doesn't go on in just cricket and the dragon agrees to throw the fight. George doesn't quite follow the plan and the dragon ends up speared. But now the dragon is back and is most unimpressed. He has one thing on his mind, finding George. George, however, thinks things are hunky-dorey the way they stand. Throw in a coach load of demons on a daytrip from the Nine Rings of Hell and you have one of the most entertaining books I've read in a while. I am now converted to Tom Holt's books and will be reading as many as I can lay my hands on from now on. A truly excellent read.

I love Tom Holt's books. They are a wonderful getaway from the mundanities of every day life, set in cheery, almost parallel existences where anything can happen. What Holt does best is present us with a reluctant hero who is generally so apathetic that he/she rarely shows surprise, in spite of the unusual experiences the author forces them to endure. This humility makes it easy for any reader to identify with the characters and enter into the spirit of the narrative.

Not to spoil the story too much, 'Paint Your Dragon' tells a tale of George and the Dragon with a lot of a twist. Needless to say, Tom Holt exploits the very slim probability of a mere mortal human slaying an enormous supernatural creature, with hilarious consequences.

I recommend Tom Holt to everybody, all the time. His stories are pure escapism and a great way to relax.

First time I've read a Tom Holt book, but as an avid Terry Pratchett fan, I thought I would try it. So glad I did. Very funny story.

I love Tom Holt and have read a lot of his books but this is a slightly confusing book that I have had trouble getting into.
