Book Description

25 April 2008
Something very strange is happening in LeHorn's Hollow...
Eerie, piping music is heard late at night, and mysterious fires have been spotted deep in the woods. Women are vanishing without a trace overnight, leaving behind husbands and families.
When up-and-coming novelist Adam Senft stumbles upon an unearthly scene, it plunges him and the entire town into an ancient nightmare. Folks say the woods in LeHorn's Hollow are haunted, but what waits there is far worse than any ghost. It has been summoned...and now it demands to be satisfied.

4.0 out of 5 stars Stephen King-ish 22 Sep 2011
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Whilst I wouldn't be a great reader of Stephen King, I tried Carrie and gave up fairly quickly, I have watched the majority of the book to film tie-ins. If you are wondering what I'm rambling about then wonder no more. This is a good read and for me a nice change from the Zomb-lit and jack Reacher novels I would normaly stick to. I happened across this one after reading Keenes own zombie novels and was pleasntly surprised by what i had found.

Without giving too much away this is about old style witch craft and myths. Its about a group of friends desperatly trying to save their loved ones from a nasty(or not) fate. To say more might ruin the book and expose my lack or critiquing/spelling skills.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved It! 3 Feb 2011
By Bern
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this novel. The characters and story were exciting and there were certain turns in the story which would be typically considered boring but the author somehow manages to spin them into something exciting and realistic - well as realistic as can be in the world created in the story.

Anyway great novel, funny, exciting, suspenseful...

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good 10 Mar 2009
By marky77 VINE VOICE
Format:Mass Market Paperback
One day, while out walking his dog in the woods, mystery writer Adam Senft catches one of his neighbors performing oral sex on a granite statue of a creature that is half man and half animal. The statue somes to life during the sex act. This then leads to a series of women from the small town dissappearing at night and a creepy atmosphere surrounding the woods - in particular a hollow in the woods where a man was reported to have killed his family years ago - and sinister goings on there.

I enjoyed this book and found it an interesting and origional read. Plenty of suspence and character development so that you actually care about the characters when the real horror beings. One of Brian Keenes' better books.

Format:Mass Market Paperback
Despite being a fan of horror novels, this was my first Brian Keene book and I'm pleased to say I found it hard to put down & will definitely purchase another of his novels.

The book pits members of an average American neighbourhood against forces of evil within a "haunted forest". Not exactly highly original stuff but a large part of the contents of this book hit the spot with me. I won't spoil the story but enjoyed the fact that the central "beast" of the book was exposed early on yet still managed to pack a meaty punch. Quite often, once the monster is revealed, a book (or film) suffers in so much that much of your imagination is stripped and much of the mystery is lost. With "Dark Hollow" I found myself gripped and fascinated by the fact that you knew what was causing such a commotion.

Whilst I thoroughly enjoyed the plot & overall story of this novel, I wasn't particularly impressed by Keene's style of writing. It's adequate for writing of this genre, but certainly not great & at times it felt as if I was reading a "Young-Adult" book. Much of the events in the book however are far from being aimed at anyone under the age of 18, more so extremely sexual rather than the level of gore. It pushes boundaries but didn't go too far like several horror novels I've read have done.

The other thing that I found incredibly frustrating was the over-the-top relationship that Keene's central character had with his dog. I fully appreciate that there are a large number of people who treat their mutts with more respect than humans but page-after-page of human / canine love grinds after a while and it set up quite a predictable part of the ending.

Negative aspects aside, I still really enjoyed Dark Hollow & with a little more originality & improvement in writing skills, I think Brian Keene could start challenging the likes of King & Laymon to get into the top tier of the genre.

5.0 out of 5 stars Creepy, creepy, creepy. 24 Feb 2014
By Joy
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Lots of suspense In this novel. Characters one can relate to and the action does not let up. I highly recommend this as a page-turning experience.

Didn't like his follow-up novel, though. Called Ghost Walk. Avoid that one!
