I completed Hollowland and Hollowmen in a weekend of housework and errands that would have felt like a wasted weekend without them. I can see why Amanda Hocking has been described as an online phenomenon. Since listening to Hollowland I have searched for everything she has written and she is quite prolific. My wish list looks like her bibiography...and I have yet to be disappointed. I am not her target audience, it's been a long time since I could claim young adulthood but the genre is producing so many excellent books that I just can't resist. I also have a tween who loves to read (and listen!) and I like to know what she is reading and offer suggestions. Every once in awhile I find an author like Hocking and I get to feel like a superhero in my daughters eyes! Thanks to Amanda Hocking I am metaphorically wearing a giant 'S' on my shirt!

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
After having read the first book - which I thoroughly enjoyed - I was looking forward to this book. Overall I enjoyed it but it was not as interesting as the first. I also didn't believe some of the decisions the characters made when faced with challenges. They made me feel that the originally strong character that had survived by her wits had turned into an airhead. But overall, a good read that held my interest until the end.
What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)
The ending was realistic but not what I had hoped for, which leaves room for a sequel.
What three words best describe Eileen Stevens???s performance?
Believable, entertaining, good.
Do you think Hollowmen needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
Yes; to change the ending of the story and if it makes sense, to pick out and follow other characters once all loose ends are tied up with the originals.
