Eclipsed – How Tom Holland Eclipsed His “Celebrity” Dad

★★★★★ 4.7 out of 5 on Amazon

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

Tom Holland is constantly being requested for interviews by the world’s press and invariably he is asked, how does a kid get to become Spider-Man? All such interviews are now redundant. Eclipsed is 100,000 words with over 60 photographs in black and white and full colour and is all anyone needs to know about the extraordinary story of how a kid got spotted and managed to get through all of the tiny hoops leading to Hollywood.


Eclipsed is also available on Amazon as an ebook and paperback

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.

“Amazing book”

I was told to enjoy Ricky’s round… and I did! Open Links is one of the few books that I have read so far and it is an amazing book.

“A wonderful blend of characters and an intriguing set of events “

You know those books that are just a joy to read? That if you are having a stressful day will inevitably put a smile on your face? Well I must congratulate Mr. Holland on writing one of these books with his story “The Ripple Effect.”

This book featured a wonderful blend of characters and an intriguing set of events that kept you guessing right until the end. It was enjoyable to read a story that had characters that seemed so realistic, that they could really exist in our world. The scheming politician, the jilted ex-girlfriend, the star athlete in need of anger management, and the dreamer who will never stop believing in miracles. With characters like these it is easy to really dive into the story and to even wonder if this situation could really happen somewhere in our crazy world.

Even with all of this realism embedded throughout the book Mr. Holland still successfully transported the reader to another place where a very small action can lead to a very large series of events. This series of events caused catastrophic, tumultuous, and hilarious events to happen between the various characters, which Mr. Holland knitted together seamlessly.

In short terms, “The Ripple Effect” is a wonderful story, a delightful read, and I would recommend it to anyone that loves seeing the little guy make it big. Congratulations to Mr. Holland on another incredible work.

Also, as a side note, the fact that the main character’s son is named Tom is just the sweetest thing. It is always wonderful to see an author bring in his real-life family and inspirations into a story.

“Funny, sad and full of surprises”

A wonderfully well written book. Warm and relatable characters carry you through what appears at first to be a painfully sad tale. Another great read from this author.

” 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.

“Brilliantly written, well paced, full of subtle reflections on life and many laugh out loud moments”

A truly wonderful book about the trials and tribulations of a man standing at the top of the comedy roller-coaster and his subsequent ride down to the revolving tea cup and saucers, as he strives to rise again. Great story, peppered with genuinely funny and well paced anecdotes, I grinned throughout and laughed out loud many times.

Beautifully interlaced with stories supporting the family he clearly loves, as his eldest son, Tom Holland, grows to become one of today’s hottest Hollywood stars. What sets this book apart from most ‘stand up’ penned books is that Dominic Holland is an excellent writer. Full of interesting insights in to life, the life of a comedian and the craziness of the movie industry, i read the book in one marathon session.

This is a really heart warming easy to read tale of a family experiencing what it is really like to hope, endeavour, work incredibly hard and ultimately succeed in the movies.

And I just love his Optimism ! He is knocked back again and again but he just keeps on keeping on. I guess as a Perrier Comedy Award winner he knows he has it in him to be a major success. In fact I’m sure Dominic Holland truly believes in his heart that Eclipse Two will be written by Tom Holland in a few years time when his Dad wins a Best Screenplay Oscar… I wouldn’t put it past him.

“This was a hard to put down book..”

This was a hard to put down book, and there’s not many that do that for me. It was probably always going to be an obvious ending for this feel good novel but the story telling was excellent on the way there. The only criticism was the last couple of paragraphs seemed to round up the story in too much of a rush; could have been a little more flamboyant I think. But highly recommended by me.

“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

“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.

“A hilarious story with tremendous characters, definitely worthy of 5 stars!”

This was a great read and I highly recommend it. I wasn’t expecting to enjoy it so much but I can honestly say I found it very entertaining, interesting, informative and extremely funny. Look out for the scene in the hotel bedroom, this was probably the funniest chapter I have ever read and I genuinely had tears in my eyes trying to get through it. If you enjoy reading books by authors such as David Nicholls, Nick Hornby or Mark Watson then you should definitely add Dominic Holland to your list.

Sometimes in life, things happen for a reason. Little things. Tiny things that appear innocuous and incidental at the time but can go on to have life changing consequences. Sometimes good and sometimes bad. A Man's Life is a heart rending novel that draws on this theme.

Die-hard soccer fan Bill is truly despondent. His club is facing bankruptcy. His forthcoming act of protest will have untold consequences. It will ruin careers, destroy friendships and raise questions in Parliament. What might this rebellious act be? You will have to read this hilarious book to find out!

How does a film script by an unknown writer get to be read by a Hollywood studio boss? What happens if he loves it? And what do his people do if they have no idea who wrote it?
