Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Did I enjoy this book: 
This is the weirdest book I’ve ever read. I love it.

It took me a few chapters to get used to Eggleton’s writing style, but the weirdness of the language matches the weirdness of the story, and it works. Lacy Dawn is not your average heroine, but then again, she’s engaged to an alien/android named DotCom. And guys. GUYS. Just wait until you see what DotCom meant when he said he needs her to save the world. SO. AWESOMELY. WEIRD. I . . . I kind of want to call Mr. Eggleton to ask if he’s done with the next book in the series yet. I’m hooked (and I wish I could give this book more than 5 stars)!

5 stars


Would I recommend it: Absolutely!  . . . unless you’re the kind of person who gets embarrassed and/or offended by using anatomically correct language to identify body parts . . .



About the book – from Goodreads: 
Lacy Dawn’s father relives the Gulf War, her mother’s teeth are rotting out, and her best friend is murdered by the meanest daddy on Earth. Life in the hollow is hard. She has one advantage — an android was inserted into her life and is working with her to cure her parents. But, he wants something in exchange. It’s up to her to save the Universe. Lacy Dawn doesn’t mind saving the universe, but her family and friends come first.

Rarity from the Hollow is adult literary science fiction filled with tragedy, comedy and satire. A Children’s Story. For Adults.
