Smashwords book reviews by Dan Holloway

  • Sentence of Marriage (Promises to Keep: Book 1) on Aug. 17, 2009

    I loved this book when I found it on Authonomy, and I love it now.
  • Brief Objects of Beauty and Despair on Aug. 18, 2009

    These are some of the most original and talented voices you'll find anywhere, let alone for free on the Web
  • Dead(ish) on Sep. 03, 2009

    Hey, I very much enjoyed this, and I loved the way you laid the book out. It feels as though you've thought about the e-format, and giving your readers a pleasurable experience. Very best of luck with it.
  • Glimpses of a Floating World on Sep. 04, 2009

    This is a haunting, poetic account of subjecty matter that has no right to be this beautiful. Utterly wonderful
  • How To Sp€nd L£ss on Oct. 09, 2009

    I approach books like this with a high degree of scepticism, but Anne has succeeded in producing a book that is thoroughly researched and utterly grounded. It treads that fine lin between stating the obvious and offering advice that no one short of a saint could stick to. The result is a book that, no matter who you are, or what you have read in the past, will produce more than its fair share of "of course, what a great idea" moments. Highly recommended.
  • Far From Home - Part 2 on Jan. 18, 2010

    I'm currently reading Bolano's 2666, and the clever, interwoven narrative on display here reminds me of Bolano's style a great deal. There's a very steady hand on show here, and some very clever, very well-written prose.
  • Whirl of the Wheel on March 26, 2010

    This is a lovely book, a tale wonderfully told with a setting and characters that draw us right into their world and never let us go
  • The Girl on the Swing on April 03, 2010

    This is a beautifully written book, with a great sense of place, superb characterisation, and the sense of an author in control of their work.
  • Make a Move on July 17, 2010

    This is a marvellous piece of post-slacker Beat-style prose that draws the reader in and keeps them in its languid grasp till the end. Marvellous
