Synopsis – Hollowland – the first book in the young adult dystopian series The Hollows..
“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.
My Thoughts – I downloaded this book when i got my kindle a couple of Christmas’ ago as i went on a bit of a spree and it was free at the time.
I downloaded it because i saw ‘young adult dystopian series’ in the description and this is my favourite type of book so what could go wrong?
This book is about Remy who we meet in a compound that is under zombie attack. The end of the world is upon her and all she is interested in is finding her younger brother whom there is some mystery about. She mangages to avoid getting bitten by the zombies and her begins her journey to find her brother who she believes has been taken to another govenment compound.
She meets other people along the way, a doctor, a young girl that comes out of the compound with her, a former rock star and some other surviours.
Well i did enjoy this book, kinda. I have realised that I’m not a huge fan of zombie books now, well you live and learn, as i found them quite gresome for my liking. I thought the story was a bit to simular for my liking. Everytime they met the zombies it was very predictable what was going to happen. I wasnt overally keen on the writing style either, it was a bit too raw for my liking.
This is not to say that its a bad book because it wasnt, it just wasnt a book for me. i dont think I’ll read anymore of this series but this book does end on a big cliffhanger so I can see why others might want to continue the story.
Rating – 3/5
