Takes on Life Vol.1

His second non-fiction book which he fully expects to be his breakthrough in to the literary big time. If you are sighing at this, then imagine the grinding reality of being Nikki Holland, his wife.

A book to make you laugh, smile, think and make you realise that it is not just you. You are not alone. An unintentional self-help book but that actually does help and does so without the aching worthiness.

The Fruit Bowl

Sometimes things just happen. Little things that appear incidental but go on to have life changing consequences; good and bad.

The Fruit Bowl draws on this theme.

Break-time at St. Edmunds School in the 1970’s; two boys lives are about to be changed forever. Tom Harper is a twelve year old being picked on by a bully. An everyday scenario played out at every break-time. Paddy Porter is an older boy and sensing the mismatch, he intervenes and settles the dispute. Just a compulsion to act and in doing so, Tom and Paddy’s futures become fused. An innocuous incident between two strangers but one that will reconnect them some thirty years later and set in motion a chain of events that completes and saves each of their lives.

I,Gabriel

★★★★★ 5 out of 5 on Amazon

I.Gabriel can be bought as a hard copy through this website, as an e-book and via amazon print-on-demand.

Gabriel Webber is a man of contradictions; a man with everything and nothing. A soaring success and an abject failure. Blessed with a brilliant mind yet incapable of understanding the most simple equation of all; to create contentment and happiness.

Lost to the progressive world. His views are anachronistic, he feels marginalised and is lost. His prejudices tormenting and confounding him until a most beautiful and unlikely epiphany. A chance encounter which literally saves his life but one he must strive to understand if he is to save his soul.

“I really enjoyed Open Links by the same author so purchased this …”

I really enjoyed Open Links by the same author so purchased this one (actually it’s free!). It might be a preposterous plot with zillion to one coincidences but so what? It was a joy to read; one of those books that make you laugh out load and shed quiet tears. It’s not high art but it’s a cracking tale that rattles along at a great pace. I loved it.

” Made me laugh throughout and kept me on my toes”

At first I was skeptical about reading Open Links as I know nothing about golf but the money was going towards a good cause and I’d recently started up a book club society at my university to immerse myself in other genres. And I must say- I’ve never read a book where the protagonist shits themself before the first chapter. Made me laugh throughout and kept me on my toes; while I usually I’m good at predicting plot twists I just couldn’t see where this one was going! I also know nothing about golf and yet not even halfway through the book I had my fingers crossed for Ricky to hit a birdie or even an eagle. 10/10, also works as a great way to avoid uni coursework.

“The first thing I thought was when is the sequel!”

I, Gabriel was the second book I read by Dominic Holland. The first being Open Links which I loved because I felt like I was a spectator at the golf tournament. When I started the book I found it really hard to like Gabriel, but as I continued the story I began to change my views of him flaws and all. Watching Gabriel change as events he was faced with made him grow as a person! The surprise at the end was not expected but worth it! The first thing I thought was when is the sequel! I thoroughly enjoy Dominic Holland’s style of writing. I have since read A Man’s Life, Eclisped and Only in America! They are all must reads!!

” It reads like a charm, Mr. Holland is a great storyteller”

I’ve put off this review long enough now. Today is the day. Last August, I was introduced to a new author. And the irony is that…if it wasn’t for his “famous son” I probably never would have heard of Dominic Holland. So, many thanks TH. Back to the review…A sunny August afternoon, Eclipsed in hand…here we go…First off, it reads like a charm, Mr. Holland’s is a great storyteller and you get immersed in the book so quickly that you can’t put it down. (that goes for all of his books actually) From laughter to tears at time, from deep reflexions to spontaneous giggles this real life story has it all and then some. It’s honest and pure. A window (that so “cliche” I know) into a surreal humain story filled with life lessons…The best one being..and I quote.. “Because life is a series of struggles and our success is a factor of how we cope with them…” I tell you, take the time, read this book…and the others also.

“Spiderman does have a dad, and he writes a good book!”

I was encouraged to purchase Eclipsed having heard Dom Holland talk about the essence of the book at MCM ComicCon. I was aware of his work as a comedian and Tom is a regular topic conversation in a house under the spell of the MCU, so it was an easy sell.

His writing style is light-hearted and self-deprecating, with the underlying theme of his self-perceived ‘failure’ contrasting his firstborn’s rise to stardom. What is obvious both in the book, and from hearing him talk, is his pride not just in Tom, but in all four boys, and the family’s commitment to keeping Tom’s feet firmly on the ground.

An easy, enjoyable read and a must for any fans (or parents of!) our current Spiderman! I now look forward to working my way through his fictional works.

“Once you are reading, you can’t seem to stop. “

The Story begins slowly with an unlikeable character, but once you are reading, you can’t seem to stop.
Gabriel is changing as the story goes and so does my opinion of him. I feel really attached to this book as I can see my friend in Gabriel’s story. Something happened in his life and just as I was reading that chapter where he decides to write a book, my friend thinks about the same thing, a strange coincidence but this book now has a special place in my heart.
This book will definitely go on to my favorites-shelf!

” This book was an absolute delight”

This book was an absolute delight and Dom just gets better and better. After reading Eclipsed and Open Links, I had high hopes and was not disappointed! Dom has an incredible talent for masterfully blending tragedy and comedy and creating characters you genuinely root for. Another amazing addition to my collection of books by Mr Holland!

“Kept me guessing”

I really enjoyed this and chuckled all the way through . Loved how Dom writes about everyday life observances and how he has skillfully navigated many taboo subjects.
I sped through it in a few days as I was so curious to see what would happen at the end and believe me I didn’t see that ending coming .
Can thoroughly recommend also Only in America and Eclipsed – planning to read the Ripple Effect and Open Links as I really like his style of writing
