A little more woo-woo than the first two Dexter adventures, but still a great read. Highly recommend it.
Tim Curry gives the best reading to this Christmas classic I have ever heard. I re-read (listen) every Christmas and I never tire of his interpretation.
There's such a risk in experimenting with an unfamiliar author. You don't want to leave on a long car trip only to find that your new audiobook is unreadable. Fortunately, Hell Hollow was a pleasure to read.
The story itself was satisfactory. The premise is interesting--extracting dreams from their dreamers and giving them reality. Good buildup of tension ad suspense.
Not without a preview to see if he has cleared up his problems with correct usage of words.
No, the story is complete, and the characters have finished their story arc.
My only beef was that Krish has a serious problem with language. He frequently uses words incorrectly. For example, "entail" for "recount." as in, "He entailed the events he had just experienced."
Or "His hands scrambled up the wall." Hands can't scramble. A person can scramble.
Or "Feelings bandied about in his mind."
Lots of things like that where the word doesn't quite fit. Straining a little too hard for colorful and interesting language.
This is one of my all-time favorite go-to Christmas stories. It's funny, irreverent and somehow captures all the elements that make up a perfect Christmas story. It's got angels, Santa Claus, transformations, love, changes of heart, sacrifices, a warrior babe, a brave dog, a talking fruit bat and--what no Christmas story should be without--zombies.
I'm a Christmas freak, and this story satisfies all my Christmas cravings. I've listened to it every Christmas for at least five years, and I still laugh out loud, causing Christmas shoppers in the mall to assiduously avoid eye contact.
