Claus: Legend of the Fat Man
by Tony Bertauski
I discovered Tony Bertauski and his books when I stumbled over The Annihilation of Foreverland and read it. That was a very interesting book so I gave a review.
Mr Bertauski then asked me if I would care to read Claus: Legend of the Fat Man.
I was quite happy to take him up on that offer 🙂 I’d like to
mention I only review books I REALLY like and having enjoyed Foreverland I assumed this would be similar and as enjoyable.
What I wasn’t expecting was such a completely different book! It’s a whole new twist on Santa Claus, and one that I’d love to see portrayed on the big screen. It could be a regular movie or an animated one.
As I was reading, my mind went to the Grinch almost immediately, with little bits of Oz thrown in just for good effect. It’s a wonderful Fantasy read that gives Santa Claus a whole new meaning and brings the North Pole into a completely different focus.
Tony Bertauski’s characters were all so charming and engaging that I was sorry when the book ended. I will recommend this to both my writing and reading friends and can’t wait for them to finish reading it so we can discuss it!
I promise you, this is one fun read. I couldn’t put it down. Don’t miss it!
