Synopsis

"This is the way the world ends - not with a bang or a whimper, but with zombies breaking down the back door."

Nineteen-year-old Remy King is on a mission to get across the wasteland left of America, and nothing will stand in her way - not violent marauders, a spoiled rock star, or an army of flesh-eating zombies.

I enjoyed the story as a whole. The ending just left you feeling like there is definitely more to the story. I expected there to be a 2nd book because this just seemed like a great start to a bigger story. But, it is definitely worth reading.

Review: Hollowland, by Amanda Hocking
May 26th, 2015
I was pleasantly surprised with this book. Over a year ago, I read Hocking's Switched, which I enjoyed, but Hollowland was a step beyond on the enjoyment level. Hocking's Hollowland was simply a great novel for its zombies, characters, and the world built inside it's pages. One thing I really liked about this book was that the author didn't spare the reader from any of the gore or unpleasantness that occurs in a world where zombies and the destruction of civilization as we know it is the "norm." In the scenes where zombies are attacking the main characters, there's much description of how much blood, limbs, etc are flying around and breaking, and dying. Hocking makes sure the reader knows just what it's like to encounter these creatures, like any good zombie book should. Some of the description of how the zombies' bodies hold up to attacks are slightly repetitive, but it also drives the point across that these once human bodies have changed drastically because of the virus. Remy, the narrator and main character, is one of the better characters I've read this year. She's strong, determined, and rarely shows a sign of weakness, even if a love interest in introduced. She's living in a world where survival is top priority and she doesn't let anything get in her way of that. I found this to be a great part of the book. All of the characters were really well-written, actually. They were all developed over the course of the book and even a few that I didn't like in the beginning, grew on me. Oh and Ripley, I want that to be a surprise, but she might be my favorite character in the book. Upon finishing this book, I knew I'd want book 2. It's not a common occurrence for me, either. It ended nicely and was set up for what I'm sure will be an exciting continuation. I can only hope that there's more excitement, blood and gore, and danger in my reading future.

Absolutely brilliant! The storyline and emotional turmoil the characters face is very real, especially the uncertainty of a life in war time - even if the war is against zombies!

Defiantly not for the faint hearted. A real page turner but could have done with being proof read
