Hell Hollow | [Ronald Kelly]

Hell Hollow

From out of a shadowy backwoods hollow echoes a dark threat from the past, nearly a century lost and forgotten. The rural town of Harmony, Tennessee, possessed a disturbing secret; a secret so ancient that most of its residents were completely unaware of it. Even the last survivors of a vigilante raid long ago have filed the tragic events of that autumn night away, totally unaware of the evil that remains, dormant, but forever patient, among the tall pines and thick-leaved kudzu of a place known only as Hell Hollow.

Publisher's Summary

From out of a shadowy backwoods hollow echoes a dark threat from the past, nearly a century lost and forgotten.

The rural town of Harmony, Tennessee, possessed a disturbing secret; a secret so ancient that most of its residents were completely unaware of it. Even the last survivors of a vigilante raid long ago have filed the tragic events of that autumn night away, totally unaware of the evil that remains, dormant, but forever patient, among the tall pines and thick-leaved kudzu of a place known only as Hell Hollow.

There it would have remained, unrevealed, if not for a handful of unknowing participants. Four kids, bored for excitement during one of the hottest summers on record; a killer on the run, dodging his latest atrocity; and a rape victim on a deadly mission - scarred in both body and mind all have a hand in bringing forth an unspeakable evil from the dark woods of Hell Hollow.

He is a skeletal figure in top hat and tails, brandishing a handful of magical cards and a patented elixir that was brewed in the very depths of Purgatory.

    Story
    "AMAZING Southern-fried, coming-of-age horror tale"

    As if told by your favorite front-porch-story-tellin' Southern grandpappy, this tale will leave you breathless. The narrator is excellent for the charm of this tale, and the story is near-perfect. Ronald Kelly outdid himself. If you like this one, pick up his short story collections and The Dark'Un too. I really hope we'll be getting more of Ronald Kelly's novels on Audible soon. VERY soon.

    Plot in a nutshell: Kids band together to fight an evil force.

    And it's GOOD!

    I recommend listening to this on your headphones while swinging on your porch swing and sipping sweet iced tea on a collection of summer evenings.

    What made the experience of listening to Hell Hollow the most enjoyable?

    Fantastic character development and story. Loved the story-line. Ronald Kelly easily holds his own with, and even surpasses some of, the best authors in this genre. A great find and I will now be seeking out his other offerings.


    Any additional comments?

    J Rodney Turner was absolute perfection as the narrator.

    Story
    "Aaahhhh, a good story."

    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.

    Where does Hell Hollow rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It was a good listen. The narrator did a good enough job with everyones voice. I can't say it was my favorite but it was not the worst I've listened to either.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Hell Hollow?

    The ending! I mean Really????


    If you could take any character from Hell Hollow out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Grandpa. For the age of the man, he has a lot of stamina, and I love how he worked through getting to have a relationship with his grandson.


    Any additional comments?

    Not going to give out and spoilers but the there is a alot of promise with a story such as this, but I feel it fell a little short. Parts of the book seem to flow, while other parts felt like they were just stuck in there as a little extra.
