Who is Tom Ditto?

by David Wallace.

When Tom Adoyo’s girlfriend Hayley goes missing, he struggles to find answers. So many unanswered questions, too, and it quickly becomes apparent that he knows far less about Hayley than he first thought. While investigating the whereabouts of his girlfriend who is not actually missing, Tom finds out about a strange society to which Hayley belong to –  a society which thrives on following and copying other people’s habits and mannerisms.

A quirky, funny book which bubbled with modern realism and wit, this was a fun read although very weird at times. The book raises questions about identity and how we define ourselves. While investigating the whereabouts of his girlfriend who is not actually missing, Tom finds out about a strange society to which Hayley belongs to –  a society which thrives on following and copying other people’s habits and mannerisms.

While this book was very funny, I don’t think it is really going to have any significant impact as far as books go. Good to read while waiting for a flight, though.

MY RATING: *** / *****
