The Hollow: The Hollow Trilogy, Book 1 | [Jessica Verday]

The Hollow: The Hollow Trilogy, Book 1

When Abbey’s best friend, Kristen, vanishes at the bridge near Sleepy Hollow Cemetery, everyone else is all too quick to accept that Kristen is dead, and rumors fly that her death was no accident. Abbey goes through the motions of mourning her best friend, but privately, she refuses to believe that Kristen is really gone. Then she meets Caspian, the gorgeous and mysterious boy who shows up out of nowhere at Kristen’s funeral, and who keeps reappearing in Abbey’s life. Caspian clearly has secrets of his own, but he’s the only person who makes Abbey feel normal again.

Publisher's Summary

When Abbey’s best friend, Kristen, vanishes at the bridge near Sleepy Hollow Cemetery, everyone else is all too quick to accept that Kristen is dead, and rumors fly that her death was no accident. Abbey goes through the motions of mourning her best friend, but privately, she refuses to believe that Kristen is really gone. Then she meets Caspian, the gorgeous and mysterious boy who shows up out of nowhere at Kristen’s funeral, and who keeps reappearing in Abbey’s life. Caspian clearly has secrets of his own, but he’s the only person who makes Abbey feel normal again - but also special.

Just when Abbey starts to feel that she might survive all this, she earns a secret that makes her question everything she thought she knew about her best friend. How could Kristen have kept silent about so much? And could this secret have led to her death? As Abbey struggles to understand Kristen’s betrayal, she uncovers a frightening truth that nearly unravels her, one that will challenge her emerging love for Caspian, as well as her own sanity.

What the Critics Say

“The Hollow…is a phenomenal read that will leave you itching to read the sequel! Jessica Verday is my favorite breakout author of 2009!” (Alex Malerba for twilightseriestheories.com)

“Verday’s paranormal romance has an intriguing premise…that will easily attract a teen female readership…With a cliffhanger ending and impending sequel this novel will find many fans.” (Booklist)

“This inventive tale from a first-time author cleverly interweaves elements of Washington Irving’s famous The Legend of Sleepy Hollow not only in the setting, but also in the characters…Readers, particularly fans of Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight…and other supernatural romances, will clamor for the second novel in this trilogy.” (School Library Journal)

    "Poor execution of a good idea"

    I like the idea for the story and the cover art. Unfortunately, this book never really developed. Way too much time devoted to the mundane... going to bed, waking up, eating breakfast, going to school, doing home work... The book quickly develed into nothingness and very little was actually dedicated to the death/mystery of Kristen.

    Pass on this one.

    Story
    "OMG Get on with it already"
    What disappointed you about The Hollow?

    Everything, the plot line sounded interesting but it took forever to go anywhere


    Has The Hollow turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Perhaps


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Her painful enunciation of every letter of every word put my teeth on edge, she did however manage to read it in a way that made me think something good was around the corner when in reality it was further minutia about how the main characters feet were cold and the long drawn out process she would take to warm them up, blah, blah, blah - get on with the story.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Anger this book could have been reduced to a short story and been a completely interesting read-all the details of how Abby walked to school, her perfume making, what her parents were saying at any given moment - it just dragged on & on - I finally skipped to the epilogue without any fear of missing something good - I hate not finishing a book


    Any additional comments?

    The story got lost in the detail-cut the crap next time and I may read another.
