Reviews of this book
After reading this book Bill Hawkins wrote this
I'd just finished the combined books (Goatsong and Orchard), and went to Google to see what I could learn about Holt. Your site seemed quite complete, and offered an offline quote generator as well. So I looked at the page for Orchard and found two links to reviews. The first was by someone who did not understand the book, and should have kept quiet so as not to appear so unobservant of anything not closely connected to himself. The other link, to the "Independent", did not work.
