Book Review: Hollowland

Amanda Hocking
Format: Kindle Edition
File Size: 344 KB

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

I had gotten this book some time in September. I had fallen in love with Hocking’s concept and after reading the first few pages, I was hooked on this page. But with the massive amounts of homework from my AP classes I haven’t found any spare time to read lately.

Then, this weekend, I started and I could not stop. I ended up finishing the book in a day! A new record for me!(Sorry this review is so late). But enough about me.

 Hocking has a magnificent way with words. The writing is effortless and so personal, Remy and her companions come alive and are no longer words on paper.

Hollowland is the first in The Hollows series. It begins with zombies tearing down the walls and does not let up. The drive in this book follows Remy, a young girl who is searching for her younger brother, suggested to have been moved to a quarantine. Remy, determined to find him, sets off across a now zombie infest, wasteland of America in search for her brother. She encounters many fantastic and damn real events that will make you hold your breath in anticipation. Her friends are, individually, as crazy as awesome as crazy gets. Not one charcter is repeated and one can find it impossible not to love each one for who they are.
While these events happened (no, I will not tell you what they are), Remy never lost sight of her goal- which for me is a great thing because many books tend to focus on the love story more then the action and Hocking defiantly brought that action. Hocking writes through Remy’s perspective, in a voice unique and so personal, you almost wonder if the author herself has ever been in a zombie infest universe before. I felt the emotions through this book and I have to say it is definitely a new favorite of mine. And I mean look at the cover art- AMAZING!

If you love dystopian novels with powerful female characters and a lot of ass kicking mixed in, (plus a bit of romance to spice things up) you are going to love this book!
