The Hollow by Jessica Verday
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
2.5 stars, and a sad face :(.
When I first picked up this book, I got all three because I was going on a three month sail, so I didn't get around to reading the first book until a few weeks in. Sad face, sad face, and yes you guessed it, sad face. :'(
I love stories about Sleepy Hollow, and I was under the impression that this book would be a modern day retelling or close to it. All I got was a sad punch to the face and a book series that I had to finish or face the fact I wasted closed to $50 on stupidness. (I'm still refusing to face that fact)
There was too much description about the little things, like taking a bath, it took her three pages to take a damn bath. There was no need for it. It took away form the story, and it just became boring filler.
The story itself was way too dragged out, and the big revel, wasn't that big but, at the same time I was left with more questions the answers. Even when I finished the book series, though I must say the third book was better then the other two, I was still left with this unfinished feeling. Like there should have been something more, more feeling, more story, more I don't, I can't pin point it, it's just how I feel.
I really wish I could rewind time and tell my past-self to
put the damn books back
and move on. I would have saved myself from sad disappointment and a literary black eye to my reader soul.
The Hollow killed my dreams of Sleepy Hollow, now I'm going to watch the movie - 1999- to make my soul happy again.
Bye now. :)
