Review: Hollowland

Hollowland
Hollowland by Amanda Hocking
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

This book was okay I guess. It was actually really ridiculous.

Ridiculous things kept happening. I know its a zombie book, and an entirely made up senario, but there is no reason for it to be as incredibly unrealistic as it was. It starts out fine. And then they find a zombie-eating lion in the desert. That’s also tame. And decides to join in their wacky adventures!

Seriously, the things that happened in the book fit in the Zombieland movie nicely. Whenever they find themselves in an impossible to escape situation, the lion magically appears and saves them, or some other incredibly coincidental and well timed help arrives.

It seemed a bit like some child’s imagination. Of course the main character is an awesome zombie fighter, and this super hot rock star is into her, and the lion immediately comes to a chosen name and becomes bffs with her, and obviously a bunch of other things I won’t mention as they would spoil it, but essentially mean the main character has ridiculously good luck.

Aside from the ridiculousness (I feel like I’m in Harry Potter fighting a Bogart for how many times I’ve said it), its a decent enough book. Not a masterpiece, but if you’re bored, and like zombies, and the Zombieland movie, why not.
