To Hold the Bridge

To Hold the Bridge - Garth Nix You can find this, and other reviews, on my blog. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

This is a very fantastic collection of short stories, one that I’m going to enjoy revisiting time and time again. Garth Nix is such a talented writer, and I really don’t think there’s anything he can’t write.

The Curious Case of the Moondawn Daffodils Murder was probably my favourite (aside from To Hold the Bridge itself). Anything even tangentially related to Sherlock Holmes is okay by me, and this one had me giggling more than once. I also really enjoyed Vampire Weather and An Unwelcome Guest, but I must note that there wasn’t a single story I got to the end of and thought “meh.” They were all pretty great.

Honestly, I don’t even know what else to say about it. It’s fantastic for long-time fans, but also for those who are wanting to test the waters - it covers so many different writing styles and genres that there’s something for everyone, and everyone needs a copy right now.
