Book Description

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.

This is a young adult title with some language, violence, and mild sexual situations recommended for ages sixteen and up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Frickin' Awesome! 10 Dec. 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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 Remy...she recognises another with the heart of a lioness.

This is a fast-paced, action-packed, tense, gory thrill ride in a zombie-filled America. Amazing characters, awesome and well-written action scenes and a sensitive and beautiful grasp on the the many facets of man when forced into desperate survival.

Hollowland blew me away; Remy blew me away; once again Hocking blew me away! I hope this is only the beginning of this world she has created because I can't bare that a now favourite character of mine should be left hanging on such an open ending.
More please.

5.0 out of 5 stars I never thought I would say this... 20 Mar. 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
...I was wrong. I thought this would be a Twilight version but with Zombies. I assumed it would be poorly written with little to no inventiveness. I thought there wouldn't be any wit. Any drama. Any good.


I enjoyed this story to the point of nearly crying when I read the last word. Not because of the ending and the pain, suffering, love, hate, life and energy this book contains. But because I didn't want it to end. I WANT TO KNOW MORE!! What happened next? Where does Remy, the heroine, go? What about her borther, Max? Does Ripley keep eating zombies like we pop m&ms? What about Blue, Lazlo...? URGH!!!

So, in short... this is an unexpected gem of a story. It is written by a younger person, there are some mistakes and typos so us anal-freaks will have to ignore them - they are far and few. But the story more then makes up for those small niggles. And trust me, I'm nit-picking.

3.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining, but needs editing work 3 July 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've read nothing else by this author so approached the work with no preconceptions.

On the whole I would say that I enjoyed the book. I found the storyline engaging and entertaining. A little absurd at times and sort of cookie cutter (but it's a zombie novel, it's not like people reading it are really striving for realism, and there are only so many directions a zombie book can go in before you'd pretty much covered them all). I think most of the characters were portrayed well, but some could've done with a little extra padding or fleshing. Some aspects were cliched and many were clearly unresearched (I mostly refer here to the completely tame, kitten-like behaviour of a grown lioness).

What let this book down for me was the badly edited, rushed feel to it. Grammar itself isn't terrible, but syntax is pretty appalling in places. Missing words, misplaced or misused words ( two examples that come to mind are 'except' being used where 'accept' was required, and 'faired' being used in place of 'fared'). Many more besides these. The text is littered with them, and though it wasn't to the extent that it stopped me from reading, it was irritating and detracted somewhat for me from the general enjoyment.

If you don't care about editing issues then this is a great book for you. It flows, has an engaging storyline with motivated and occasionally endearing characters, and basically passes the time.
But if something being badly written is a bugbear for you (as it is me) then I'm not sure you'd enjoy this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't pass it up! 4 Jun. 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
I have to say that like other reviewers I almost passed up this book and even after I downloaded it I was reluctant to read it. But this book blew me away!!!
First off, the writing was phenomenal and the characters were brilliant. The author actually manages to combine lush imagery, with hilarious and horrifying events and simultaneously creates a set of characters that you can relate to, for a fabulously entertaining, action packed, and heart warming story.
I know what your thinking, there's no way she manages to mix those three genres together in a story about the zombie apocalypse. Well I'm here to tell you that she not only manages it, she does a bloody (forgive my pun) good job at it.
Even if your apprehensive about the title, storyline, or genre, I suggest trying this book. Bored and looking for something new? This is really something you should give a chance. Anyone from 16 to 46 will find this a great read. As a 21 year old I found myself agreeing with the main characters choices and thoughts about her fellow survivors, her need to find her brother, and her outlook on zombie fighting. And while I thought this storyline would be overdone, the author has a fresh new take on it and manages a few surprises.
Take my advice and try it out! It has something for everyone and will pull you into a new and exciting world!

5.0 out of 5 stars Well Done Amanda 16 Feb. 2015
Format:Kindle Edition
Hollowland (The Hollows, #1) by Amanda Hocking is one story filled with some rather upsetting to the stomach stuff, but hey, what can you honestly expect from a YA zombie dystopian series? Cherries and pie???

Cliché? Yes we have had one too many zombie this and zombie that but it’s not our imagination, its Miss Hockings, we are the readers, we either choose to read it or don’t. Why read something you are completely tired and bored of only to complain and write nasty reviews? Seems mischievous and desperate for attention to me.

Remy King’s journey over what is left of the once beautiful, proud and prosperous 1st world country is a heartbreaking one. Hockings manage to paint this image into our subconscious so powerfully that this world literally came alive with all the gaul and gore that comes with it. Remy is a strong girl and I admire her character, I was rooting for her. This was an exciting, dark, gripping and thrilling book, well done Amanda!
