Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Sausages by Tom Holt
Paperback: 368 pages
Release date:Feb. 21st, 2011
Publisher: Orbit
Goodreads Summary:
Polly is a real estate solicitor. She is also losing her mind. Someone keeps drinking her coffee. And talking to her clients. And doing her job. And when she goes to the dry cleaner's to pick up her dress for the party, it's not there. Not the dress - the dry cleaner's.

And then there are the chickens who think they are people. Something strange is definitely going on - and it's going to take more than a magical ring to sort it out.

From one of the funniest voices in comic fiction today comes a hilarious tale of pigs and parallel worlds.


A book that will surely beloved by science enthusiasts. And a story that is unusual and comical. At first I thought that I wouldn’t finish this book because I’m not into this kind of story. But when I started reading it I got curious on where the story will gets, that I realized it’s a page-turner book for me. Bizarre things started when Polly off to pick up her dress on the dry cleaners, that the dry cleaners was the one which is missing. Then to her brother and even on her work, things seem a bit odd. The story is very new to me; I mean I thought it is really that serious (I mean the unusual thing that going on in the life of Polly). It is serious, but…it’s just that, I keep smiling every time I remember how the story ends and the whole truth about the eerie things that’s happening to Polly. You just have to read it and I know that you will surely going to adore it. I now agree that Tom Holt is the most imaginative satirist in modern times. There’s just one question that every man I know, knew and that I will left for you to answer, “Which came first? The chicken…or the egg?”



  1. Seems like my kind of book! Added to my TBR list, hope I can get my hands on it :) Thanks for the review!

  2. This really sounds like a freaky read. I like the idea of the author making the character feel like she is loosing her mind. lol Happens to the best of us, aside from chickens thinking they are people I have to say I've never experienced that.
