Book review: Hollowmen

Not too long ago I wrote a blog post about reading Amanda Hocking’s Hollowland book.  I also made comment on how I’m not big on zombie books.  That hasn’t changed.

Well yesterday, bedridden with a stomach flu and desperately trying to forget about the chills and muscle aches, I downloaded the sequel.  Hey, I figured my stomach was already screwed up, so it couldn’t get much worse.

So Hollowmen picks up 6 months after Hollowland.  Believable.  New characters are introduced.  Most die, along with some from the original book.  

Lots of death (some gruesome so I would suggest only mature teens read the book).  But mingled in with the death and despair comes a ray of hope. The message behind the book was spot on.  

As a non-zombie fan it’s hard for me to gush over this book.  But I can say that it allowed me to forget how ill I felt for a few hours so that’s gotta count for something, right?  

Hollowland is still available as a free download on Kindle.  Hollowmen was $2.99

Star rating: 4 out of 5 

Thank you Amanda Hocking for helping me through a terrible day!
