3.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable November 10, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was a big fan of the first book, Hollowland, and downloaded Hollowmen the minute I found out it was available. It took me under 2 hours to finish, so it's a pretty quick read. I want to be clear that I am a huge Amanda Hocking fan and I believe her writing has done nothing but improve as she continues to write and publish. I also want to make it clear that Hollowmen is very much worth reading! But I did have some issues with the book, pros and cons as with everything, so I'll detail them here. Please be warned- this review WILL contain some spoilers!

**SPOILER ALERT**

The heroine is a bit too cold and distant regarding taking on a new lover when her old one is out there waiting for her. Remy King doesn't have a problem sleeping with/making out with one guy and then moving onto the next one, showing very little remorse during what would be, for some people, an act which would cause some highly conflicted emotions. Remy is a bit colder than most girls, and love doesn't enter the equation in this book, which could explain her lack of guilt. But I found it off-putting that she would so easily disregard anything she felt for Lazlo and latch onto the next available guy.

I enjoyed the new characters added to the book, but they received very little backstory and were difficult to care about from the perspective of the reader. There were a lot of character deaths, but only two of them drew any kind of emotional reaction from me- one for the shock value and one because I genuinely liked the character. Characters I'd cared for in the first book were given a few terse lines to explain their fate, and some were left inexplicably for us to wonder what ever happened to them.

The ending was disappointing for me.

1.0 out of 5 stars Hollowtrylle...I mean, Hollowmen. November 18, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
After having worked my way through the rather poorly-written Trylle Trilogy (Twilight with trolls), I found that I would give Amanda Hocking another chance through the form of Hollowland. Let me first just say that I thoroughly enjoyed Hollowland: I found the characters were enjoyable, the romance was believable, Remy was a strong lead and the situations arguably realistic. I especially enjoyed the explanations of the zombies and the darkness it did not sidestep. I found that Hocking could write if she did not appeal to the Twilight demographic and attempted something for an older, more experienced audience.

I downloaded Hollowmen about a week ago and am a good chunk of the way through, but I find that I just can't bring myself to finish it. The editing is terrible. Not just unsightly, but there are times when you must stop reading and cringe. "Crazy fast" is used to describe the movement of a zombie (honestly), and the fates of characters that we came to love in Hollowland are handled with about as much care as a mugging. Remember Blue, the doctor? Well, his fate is summed up like this: "Blue was definitely a zombie, and a young one too, which meant he'd be hella fast and hella strong". There are parts handled and written so clumsily that make you wonder if Hocking knows she's writing a book, not some sort of feverish diary. The romance I could see oncoming was silly and cliché, nowhere near to matching that of the first book. Remy's new companions are boring and "exported characters" that completely fail to get you interested as Hollowland did. Even Remy herself begins to become a Wendy Everly at times. The once-promising series seems to be going the way of the awful Trylle Trilogy, which is very sad. All in all, it's very easy to see why Hocking is self-published.

1.0 out of 5 stars I just really wanted it to be good! November 27, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was such a disappointing sequel in so many ways that are better stated in other reviews, I just wanted to reiterate and contribute to theirs by posting my own. I kept wanting Hocking to reach the potential that she could have with this sequel but she simply couldn't seem to. Sadly I have to say don't bother with this one.

1.0 out of 5 stars Horrible November 17, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
I am severely disappointed because this books sounds exactly like a story I would LOVE to read. To bad she seems to be cranking out a Quantity of books instead of cranking out Quality books.

This books was awful. I can tell why this author didn't get anything published fast. She needs an editor. And a really good one. I read the first one and thought it was pretty good. I was kind of surprised. A lot of books published these days seem to be made without quality. And the first one did good. Like-able characters believable storyline (as believable as some things get *cough* lion *cough*)

But this as a sequel? I am SO disappointed. She basically took out the old characters and made up all new ones. Undid the already developed romance (it seems to be a trend in her books to completely ruin a perfectly good romance). I mean I get she is writing an apocalypse story, but with all the deaths going on it seems unbelievable that Remy herself would have made it. She should be dead and it should move on to another point of view. Its ridiculous. She is no J.K. Rowling. And killing characters like that is so off-putting.

Also the grammatical errors! I find it hard to believe some of those wouldn't be caught somewhere in whatever editing she had done to it.
