Read full description of the books The Hollower:The Hollower is a fast-paced, phantasmagoric horror novel that starts off with a bang, literally, and doesn't let up until the climax, which ties things up neatly but leaving readers with a nifty ending that begs for picking up the sequel, Found You. The protagonist, Dave Kohlar, a small-town newspaper reporter and caretaker of his mentally-disturbed younger sister, begins to have troubling and frightening incidents, where he glimpses a mysterious figure dressed in black, wearing a black fedora...but with a blank, featureless face. Reality begins to blur each time he sees the ominous figure known as The Hollower (my only complaint is that the reason for this moniker is never really fully explained) and his starts to wonder if he'll fall victim to the same mental illness as Sally, his sister. Soon, though, we're introduced to a few other inhabitants of Lakehaven, who've also witnessed The Hollower: a female bartender, a recovering drug addict, a young boy, and the town detective. Things move along swiftly as all four of them realize they will have to band together and attempt to thwart the true nature of this evil entity. Sangiovanni's true talent comes with not only crafting a wholly original plot, and clearly introducing us to the first part of a larger story (now, a trilogy) but skillfully fleshing out these characters with a minimal of effort, and making the reader care about them, even with all their very human faults and failings. Highly recommended.
