It was fun, original and kept me entertained for a good six or so hours The pacing was fine, and I liked that it was based upon Washington Irving s classic tale of Sleepy Hollow I change what I previously said on this review, since on analysis, Abbey was an alright heroine She wasn t too flat, and although there was a lot of room for expansion, she has a promising career ahead of her Caspian was unique, captivating and although he has the same ki Despite Washington Irving references, about 90% of this book focuses only on the lovestruck gazing at a mysterious friendly boy who likes to hang out at a cemetery Casper CaspIAN Not a friendly ghost at all, why d you ask Yup, I just gave away the big plot point of this book Which everyone, except the protagonist, is able to see from a mile away, with all the anvil sized hints the author drops.
Now, the idea of this story sounded interesting our teenage protagonist Abbey knows that her best friend s death is likely very NOT accidental, and she just happens to live in the town made famous by Washington Irving s The Legend of Sleepy Hollow The one with the headless horsemen, you know However, the interesting premise goes right out of the window the moment Abbey meets a mysterious strange b I barely made it through one third of the novel And that was ENOUGH for me It wasn t suspenseful, as I expected ghosts and the supernatural variety, but instead, was met with the mysterious Caspian who was boring than mysterious I mean, he pops in and out of nowhere, with one or two words, and it s supposed to mean something Add to his enigma It s just annoying to me Get to the story, already.

Just when Abbey starts to feel that she might survive all this, she learns 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 cou I loved this book The story is amazing and the writing is wonderful I also have some favourite quotes from this book that I need to find again The story is centred around Abby living in a small town called Sleepy Hollow where her best friend Kristen has been missing for many months I really liked how the writer focused the story around the town and its legend The Sleepy Hollow aswell as the people within the town The story builds up with Abby dealing with Kristen no longer being around and then she meets a boy, Caspian, who she starts to fall in love with Caspian is a confusing character who made Abby and myself frustrated I knew there was something up with this guy and then we finally find out towards the end and my heart went out to both of them It s quite sad The Hollow kind of follows the same storyline as the book Fallen with the wholewe never know what s really go I d known about this book for months before it ever came out I m even on Verday s mailing list The premise sounded cool and the cover looks awesome But it is true what they say, you can t judge a book by it s cover The story was boring and rather dumb so let me save you from five hundred pages of tedious description and boring day to day activities SPOiLERS FOLLOW There are three main parts to the story s plot.
1 Abby s best friend Kristen disappears A few months later her body if found in the river It s supposedly a big mystery why she was even at river at night and how she fell in So Abby s going to find out About half way through the book she finds a secret journal Kristen kept that talks about a secret boyfriend, D.
, that she never told Abby about Abby feels very betrayed And that s about all on the mystery aspect of the plot We find I must admit I ve been dying to read this book since last year when word leaked out In some areas The Hollow impressed me but in others, it fell short.
First off judging from the summary you can presume that the story will heavily revolve on the death of Kristen or some feature of her correct Sadly it was about 10% Kristen and 75% Caspian swooning, 5% Sleepy Hollow legend, and 10% daily life activity Just chapters after the funeral with Kristen, Abbey somewhat falls in love with Caspian I was a bit shocked and miffed at this development Even so when Kristen is practically dismissed for the next couple of chapters while Abbey continues to swoon over Caspian Verday though manages to deal with Abbey s grief in the middle of novel of Kristen while inserting several flashbacks of th This book was good, however in the end the reader is told that Caspian is a ghost.
