Favourite Book(s) #2 – Uncommon Type: Some Stories by Tom Hanks

The moment I heard of this book I put it on advance order at Amazon and then waited for the release date. The book arrived on the release date and I immediately delved in.

The book is made up of a collection of stories all written on his collection of typewriters. Which is refreshing in this modern age of laptops & tablets. As an actor Tom Hanks is very versatile and I wondered how his writing would pan out.

I was not disappointed. I could “hear” Tom Hanks reading it as my eyes moved across the page and I digested the words. Because the stories are not linked it is an easy book to dip and out of and re-read favourite stories. I do hope we hear more from Tom Hanks as an author and whilst I rarely listen to audio books, this is one that I would like to hear especially if read by Tom Hanks.
