    One thought on “Hollowland”

    1. I can't decide what was worse: the writing quality or the plot of the book? The writing was rough but mostly functional. Amanda Hocking will never be accused of having pretty prose or character development, but more on that later. The writing is utterly devoid of any emotion. Things happen and the character reacts -- period. There's no tears, no wibbling, no real internal thoughts. In the aftermath of any event the main character, Remy, shrugs off what went down as necessary and that's all. Hm I [...]

    2. FREE RIGHT NOW ON !!! amazon/Hollowland-The-^REMY^ is one badass zombie killer! Nineteen year old Remy and her eight year old brother Max have been living at a quarantine. When the quarantine goes under attack by zombies, Remy escapes with another girl named Harlow but her brother was already evacuated. Remy will stop at nothing to find him. Heading north to where she was told her brother was taken, she picks up a lion, a doctor named Blue, and a rock star named Lazlo. Remy was a strong characte [...]

    3. Holy Hell! This is a short read but it packs a lot of punch. Not since the Alien films have I come across such a strong and incredible Heroine as Remy. Between her and the aptly named lioness, Ripley, whom Remy kind of picks up along her across state venture to find her brother, there is an abundance of totally brutal feminine power. It is no wonder Ripley has such an affinity for Remye recognises another with the heart of a lioness.This is a fast-paced, action-packed, tense, gory thrill ride in [...]

    4. This was an okay zombie story, but the pace was too slow for me. I found the whole thing with the lion a bit silly, the story seemed quite predictable too.6 out of 10

    5. I downloaded the kindle version of this book when it was free. I was robbed. Amanda Hocking does a lazy, slapdash job of crafting a post-apocalyptic zombie story with not-quite likable characters and a somewhat passable plot. The protagonist is Remy, a teenage girl facing humanity's doom at the hands (and gnarly teeth) of flesh-eating zombies. In the chaos of a zombie attack she is separated from her little brother and the story is essentially her harrowing quest to find him. Along the way she m [...]

    6. 2.5 starsNineteen year-old Remy King is traveling across zombie infested lands to find her little brother, Max King. They were separated when the last quarantine compound they were residing in was over run by zombies. Along the way Remy meets a few other survivors and together they try to reach Max at another quarantine facility up north. The Zombies are cool but scary. They are not the slow moving, “I want brains” zombies but more of the “28 Days Later” adrenaline jacked kind of zombies [...]

    7. I have to say, on this book, it brilliantly written, and the story line is perfect, but one thing I'll say is the heroine Remy, yes I know she's 19 and probably drop dead gorgeous as usual. but she had a little basic gun shooting as you read further on, but the way she tackled the zombies and jumped and spun around, and slid this way and that, is what bothered me, suddenly she's the zombie slayer of the world and everyone is in awe, now I know that authors have to brag about their main character [...]

    8. I've been hearing about Amanda Hocking for over a year now, but since I didn't own an e ReaderbWell, that changed this Christmas, when Santa left a Nook under the tree for me. God bless that fat bastard! (view spoiler)[Psst. Santa isn't real, so I'm guessing my husband got it for me. (hide spoiler)]Anyway, if you haven't heard of Ms. Hocking yet, I highly suggest you go look her up. It's pretty amazing how well she did without a publisher.Ok. On to the review.This is a YAish book about zombies. [...]

    9. There's not much I can say about this book that hasn't been said already. So I'll keep it simple. Hollowland is a is a turd in the punchbowl of self-published literature. There's some good stuff out there, but when you bump up against this stinker, it ruins the whole thing. That's a shame because there's some real talent out there and some good books to experience. So I resent not only the author wasting my time with this drivel, I resent the fact that it's wasting the time of impressionable you [...]

    10. One thing I've learned about owning a Kindle is you get a chance to read free or really cheap books from authors you might never have discovered on your own. This is one of those books. I read it in two dayso really busy days and I had to try hard to squeeze in the time so it definitely held my interest.Zombies aren't usually my thing. But I enjoyed this fast-paced read. Here is what I liked: Some good character development. Lots of action. The dialogue was believable once you suspended the disb [...]

    11. MICHELLE'S REVIEW:RATING: 5 Tatum and Lazlo stars!!!Firstly I would like to show you Amanda's original cover for this awesome zombie book. I really do like her new one up above. Gives me a face to Remy's character.If you don't know of Amanda Hocking, never read any of her work, well have a nose around this blog and you will see that I am a huge fan. Go onis review can wait.but make sure you come back to this exact spot!!I must admit I am not a zombie fanyou know, blood, gore, fugly, generally wa [...]

    12. Currently, as I write this review, my cat is trying to lay across my keyboard. So tif there are any misspellingsblame on the fat cat of mine who's desperate formy loving attention me to feed him. I did, surprisingly enjoy this book. It was free, and since I have a nook I downloaded it off of smashwords. Barnes and noble has it for like 1.99 or something. It's free for kindles too. I loved Remy. She was a strong kick-ass woman and her personality was so unique. At one point, her stubbornness got [...]

    13. Actual rating: 2.5 Stars“This is the way the world ends––not with a bang or a whimper, but with zombies breaking down the back door.”Thus begins Hollowland, a post-apocalyptic zombie novel centered around a 19-year-old girl named Remy. At the start of the story, Remy is at a government facility that shelters people from zombies. The bad news: the zombies have gotten in. Remy's young brother has been evacuated before everyone else (for "medical reasons" although it turns out to not be as [...]

    14. I am thoroughly convinced that this is how the world will end: Zombies. I have this strange fear and fascination about them so I try to procure as much books as I can about these rabid, virus-infested creatures. I've been lucky to have enjoyed what I've read so far. Unfortunately, I encountered so many problems with this book.I'm finding it hard to write about the cracks in the plot without spoiling one of the major conflicts in the book. Suffice it to say, whatever inconsistencies I found, were [...]

    15. This is my first Amanda Hocking book. It's my first zombie book as well (I think).I went into this book expecting these things:- a fast read- action-packed- entertainingI got those three things. My expectations were met (and actually surpassed at times) and I found Hollowland to be an exciting, often gory way to pass the time.I expected there to be more typos and grammatical errors, but there weren't too many and they didn't bother me. I expected the prose to be bland and brusque, but considerin [...]

    16. What can I possibly say about this book other than “meh”? I’ll give it a go but “meh” basically sums this up.I downloaded this to read because a) it has zombies in it and I have a particular penchant for these undead and cannibalistic creatures, and b) it was free. This is a very easy read but that is down to the rather wafer thin plot and extremely coarse use of language and writing style. The lack of a solid plot only serves the (lack of) quality in the writing to an advantage. Now d [...]

    17. Overall, this is one of the better zombie books out there right now. It's a solid 3.5 in my opinion. It is a very quick read, but it is still a lot of fun. There are a few things that I didn't care for, but as the book continues it gets stronger.I really liked some of the supporting characters a lot. Blue and Harlow were my favorites. I felt they were a perfect compliment to our main character of Remy. Lazlo really didn't do much for me and their love story was of zero interest to me.Remy is a l [...]

    18. This book has EVERYTHING I look for in a good zombie book!Strong heroine ----- ditzy but lovable guy ------ zombies ------ animals ------ traveling ------ stragglers ------ fighting ------ and soooo much more!!We have the loner heroine who is looking for her brother after their quarantine is evacuated. Along the way on foot she meets up with a few others and a strange animal ---- as she makes her way up north, stragglers continue to join and she finds a strange love interest.but can this last?

    19. Amanda Hocking, The Hollows, vol. 1: Hollowland (CreateSpace, 2010)It has been three months, as I write this, since the news broke that Amanda Hocking, one of the one-in-a-million vanity-/self-published wonders who keep everyone else convinced that CreateSpace/iUniverse/etc. are the literary equivalent of the yellow brick road, inked a deal with St. Martin's Press that's reported to be somewhere in the seven figures. Which sounds impressive until you read Hocking's blog and discover how much she [...]

    20. Hollowland was quite literally one of the worst novels I've read. From the first few pages, I knew this was a hate-read for me and I only finished it because someone told me there was sex towards the end (I'll explain). Here are my issues:1. The Writing:Dear Amanda Hocking, There are other adjectives besides "weird." Sincerely, The English LanguageSeriously, the writing was brutal. The exposition, although much needed in dystopian novels, was nonexistent. Characters were, at best, underdeveloped [...]

    21. Remember back in high school your weird friend that always sat by herself in the courtyard during lunch scribbling in her notebook? And how one day you were curious enough to ask what she was writing? She said, "A zombie story. I'm almost done. You want to read it?" You didn't want to hurt her feelings so you said, "Sure." The next day she asked you, "What did you think?"Now, I'm not suggesting that Ms. Hocking is a weird kid or anything. I think it's cool that she's found success writing storie [...]

    22. Had I known that this book was about a zombie apocalypse I'd have been all over it a LONG time ago. How could I not know that?! I thought it was the usual YA fare and admit that the cover had a lot to do with that. That's a lovely cover but not a hint of zombie about it. It seems it's true what they say about covers, and judging I'm not sure how long I've had this one but it seems like an age. I wish I'd gotten to it sooner.It's a very satisfying story and right from the very first line the read [...]

    23. 2.5 starsWhy I read it:I picked this book up for two reasons: (1) it was on sale; and (2) I was curious about Amanda Hocking after her meteoric rise in publishing.What I liked about it:I really liked how Hocking hit the ground running in this. She writes a good action scene, and there was plenty of action in this book. The world-building was also solid, and I loved the main character, Remy (at least, throughout most of the story), finding her toughness and determination plausible given the circu [...]

    24. Amanda Hocking is a talented writer. Hollowland melded so many of my favorite genres. The setting is a classic zombie ridden dystopia. The action is female butt-kicking urban fantasy. The horror is real horror, no laid back frights for the younger targeted audience, with a relentless pacing, and characters covered head-to-toe in blood and chunks. The romance is sweet and a little heart breaking considering the setting and what may or may not happen. I really do not know what happens in the end s [...]

    25. So, I really hate zombies. That being said, I really liked this book. It may just be the biologist in me, but Amanda put enough scientific fact about zombies to make me not totally cast the whole idea aside.This book, although it has much about zombies killing and being killed, is mostly about the characters (like a good book should be). It starts with action on page one and doesn't end until the (HUGE) cliffhanger at the end of the book. I couldn't put it down. In fact, I will probably fail my [...]

    26. More like 3.5 but it was entertaining enough to go the other way with the stars.Remy is caught in a world where people have contracted a virus turning them into zombies. She gets separated from her brother Max when the quarantine facility she is at gets run over by the zombies. Max is 8 years old and all the family she has left. He got evacuated without her and she sets out to find him.The beginning of the story had me saying huh? And really?? But once the characters started to gel I was able to [...]

    27. A cyborg from the future schoolgirl beats the crap out of zombies the way that puts T-1000 to shame. The whole idea is ridiculous; it would be equally ridiculous with a schoolboy being the main hero. I would have believe it if said schoolgirl had been raised by a martial art master training from the age of 5 of younger; but as it is a soldier just showed her how to fight - he must be a very talented sensei. The whole book is just one zombie battle after another with a little - if any - time for [...]

    28. The zombie apocalypse. It's all the rage right now. Everyone is talking about it, everyone is reading and writing about it, and Amanda Hocking got it done right.Remy is one of the remaining people left alive after the outbreak of the virus consumed the majority of the world. She and her little brother, Max, have seen their parents killed by these monsters and are now hold up in a quarantine, a sort of haven, for survivors who have not yet been infected by the virus. 'Yet' being the operative wor [...]
