I liked the main character and the premise of the story- how magic became a part of the world. Interesting concept.
The only thing this book lacks, which i have found in others of the same genre, is a strong bond between the characters. The main character has a roommate, and their interactions are awkward, to say the least. I think there is some missed potential there that i hope is corrected in future novels in this series.
At first, this book was horrible! The story was all over the map as the author tried to give context and the back story. And I really struggled with the narrator, she isn't great. About 1/3 of the way through the story, it became interesting and I was sitting in my driveway every night listening an extra few minutes. The author could have disregarded an event or two near the end of the reading, it seemed that she was trying to slam an extra few bits of action that were really unnecessary. I hear that the series is good and when Kim Harrison writing well, her story flows and is enjoyable. I am going to pick up the next in the series and see how it goes.
I have no idea who would enjoy this book especially if one likes the vampire/werewolf/witch kind of story - it's not very intelligent. Even the cliches are boring.
The performance is terrible. The reader has no sense that she's being listened to by an audience. Very little animation in the voice and that makes it difficult to pay attention. In a word, monotonous.
Yes. Great story line. Details and imaginative details that enhance the genre.
The complete supernatural world created in this series seems natural.
Laughed out loud many times.
I Love a great supernatural tale, a Love story, PNR, a Cool Mystery and Most Sci-Fi....if there are vampires, weres or witches in it, that's a plus! Basically I am a 40+ y/o young at heart woman rediscovering the wonderful world of books and am now addicted! Lol I LOVE AUDIBLE!!!!!
When she was at the rat fights....she was awesome!
Rachel of course! but I totally love Jinx too!
She give the book life!
I giggled some, and felt awful for Rachel when she was attacked by the demon!
I did enjoy this book thoroughly, but am not in love with Rachel yet...even though she is totally my type of girl, and am starting #2 now!
Fun, moving, energetic
The realistic nature of their lives. Struggling to make ends meet, working hard to make their way in the world.
This was a fun, fast moving read. Good description, characterization, performance. It has a lot of energy and well worth the time.
I loved reading about King Arthur and Knights of the round table when I was a wee lad. Now I am older and love Game of Thrones!
I am not saying first, there might be a better one, but its a tie with about 4 books. I had read a review, and they were spot on... M Gavin does an incredible job narrating the charactors, and making you feel like your in the story. Pure imagination.A few lagging parts, but the narration kept me joyful when I played it and listened to a few chapters, just as keenly as I had started it... all the way thru.
It makes you aware there will be more novels, and there are. I want to get the next three asap!
The tomatoes that changed the future.
If you love Dresden Files, then this is for you! Kim Harrison has a wonderful imagination and Marguerite Gavin reads this wonderfully! Super easy read.
I'm not giving anything away....Marguerite dose outstanding narrating bringing the characters personality to life.... This is my first book by Kim Harrison but you can bet I'll be getting the rest of The Hollows..
