Book Review: The Hollows by Barry Napier
Reviewed by J Bryden Lloyd

Writing Style - 4.0/5.0 (Very Good)
A very skilful blend of the supernatural and tension is coupled up with some nicely thought-out characters, to make this into a book worth reading.
Although this is not a genre I tend to read a great deal of, when I do I like to be entertained and Napier certainly managed to do that with this genuine page-turner.
The dialogue is considered and pulls you in nicely to the atmosphere of the scene. The characters are filled with just enough flaws to make you think twice about what they might do next, and the scene-building as of a high standard throughout.

Character Development - 4.5/5.0 (Excellent)
I liked all the characters in this work. I even had an uncomfortable fondness for the bad-guy, which is testament to the writing of this particular character being far superior to the others.
The mother character was one of the quickest introductions and you do get a lot of background which perhaps paints her as being a little bland. Nevertheless, she does develop into a more rounded character as the story progresses.
The two police officers are good as supporting characters and you get to know enough about them to keep your interest in them.
As for the character who is central to the plot; young Casey is very nicely drawn, and as an unwilling participant in the main plot, the author builds him very nicely into a very conflicted person, torn between doing what he knows he must, or putting trust in the possibility that everything will be alright in the end.

Descriptive - 4.0/5.

It is amazing how this story is narrated, it start slow and go fast gradually. It is a different story seen in different angles, terrifying, intriguing, sad and feels real although it is Sci-fi.

Just Amazing, really enjoyed the book, worth the reading.

I have this rating because I mostly enjoyed the book. I felt parts were a little slow, but I stayed, wanting to know more. I recommend to anyone who likes a sixpence book. Good Job Berry. I can't wait to read another!!
