Monster in the Hollows
Reviewed in the United States on July 3, 2011
This book, just like the preceding two before it, was absolutely fantastic.
Andrew Peterson has not failed to create yet another gripping tale - a true can't-put-it-down story of peril, intrigue, and shocking plot twists that he executes with masterful dexterity.
Even as I type this, my Mom is chowing through the end of North or Be Eaten, and my Dad is beginning The Monster in the Hollows. Every last person in my family of six loves these books, and we've recommended/lent/given copies out to many friends, all of whom have become ardent fans as we have. My Dad, who NEVER reads fantasy, has stayed up until 1:00am (multiple times) to find out the ever-elusive "What happens next?!?" in these marvelous series.
The Monster in the Hollows lived up to the exalted standards Andrew Peterson set in books 1 and 2. We wait with bated breath for the Books to Come.
Thank you, Sir Peterson, for this series. I'm an oldest, like Janner, and his frustrations with his siblings have opened my eyes to the similarities between he and I... it's challenged me to be patient and brave and uncomplaining, as he strives to be. Just a few days ago, throughout a day of intense frustration towards the youngsters in my life, I gritted my teeth and whispered fiercely to myself to be like Janner, to fight like Janner for patience. It gave me courage. Ever since reading this book I have been heartened by the memory of the Wingfeathers' adventures, their moments of cheer, their laughs, and the hard times, and the courage required of them. Thank you so, so much for these books.
Oh. And by the way.
Peet the Sock Man is awesome.
A thorough fan,
