About Per Holbo

When I was a kid, about 8 yrs. old or so, I would lend at least 25 books at the school library for my summer break. At first my teachers shook their heads in disbelief and they were probably thinking to themselves: he is never going to finish all of those books. But coming back after the summer break, I was always able to give them a detailed review of every single book. Some of those books were trilogies such as Isaac Asimovs "Foundation-" series and "Ringworld."

I simply love books and though I like watching a movie just as much as everyone else, reading a book really is something else. By reading a book you construct pictures in your own mind instead of being served by a director.

But what I love the most about books is the possibility of finding several layers in the book. Things that you cannot find in a movie can be put into a book, because words can be used in such a way that other kinds of meaning appear or disappear.

I write about almost everything and anything, but always with my own speciality of "wry and dry" humor, that is, the kind of humor that attacks a subject head on, but still leaves the reader to think about it.

I really hope you will enjoy my books...

Wishing you a good reading experience,
Per Holbo

Review by: Ed Drury on April 20, 2012 :
Short humorous story about a thrifty man who's favorite things to do are all free. He lead a simple live and was finally at piece with himself after going to so much trouble not to spend a dime. And he succeeds at this very, very well.

I enjoyed this little romp into the common Scot stereotype gone extreme. And McGrath would approve this story cause, well because it is free.
