Hollowland by Amanda Hocking
(Hollows Series #1)
From Barnes and Noble
"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.
REVIEW: 4 STARS
First and foremost I am a sucker for anything with Zombies. I am a huge fan of the Walking Dead and I have zombie dreams at least once a week so when I found this book I was super excited to pick this up and read it. The book opens with the the government quarantine where Remy resides getting taken over and burn down to try to stop another zombie outbreak. Remy along with another girl escapes the attack and they set off to find Remy's little brother. Remy eventually meets up with two other boys where the travel through what is left of America. As they travel across America, Remy finds it more and more difficult to seperate herself from others emotionally and physically. She doesn't think that she can care about anyone and stay alive. She will soon find out if she's wrong or right. Another thing I liked about this book was that they zombies weren't your traditional from the grave zombies. They had some form of rabies that cause their mind to turn to mush and to turn them into flesh seaking monsters. Remy's relationship with Lazlo was a little suprising to say the least. I expected her to end up with Blue but I guess when almost all of the population has been killed you take what you can get. All in all this book was pretty good. Was sort of slow in some parts but overall a very good read.
