Hollowland....

I have to take a minute to say

I so love all the names she picked out for the characters..


and I would love to have a zombie killing lioness for a pet

named Ripley


do you think Lazlo is a strong enough love interest for

Remy?

or should she be with Tatum..or Blue?

How did you feel about the placement of the romance element to the story?

too much, not enough?

I say TATUM all the way....!! I thought the names were all cool, I was a little unsure about ripley..but come to love him!
I would have liked a little more romance or flirting between Remy and Tatum.

It will be interesting to see how it all plays out, won't it. I definitely don't see her with Blue. But would love to see her with Tatum, but I love Lazlo too. Tatum just seems like he is the more stronger of the two and Remy needs a really strong guy. BUT I would hate to see Lazlo get his heart broken. Can you tell that I am torn??

I wish that there had been a bit more to the romance side of it, but I think that this is fairly typical for my feelings on the YA books. Plus, there is so much going on...it probably would have taken away from the suspense/adventure part of the book.

LOVED Ripley and the use of the "cats" within the story!

I hadn't thought about all the names, but you are right. They are all really unique and I like that!

I think that while he wasn't the stronger one for Remy it made them have an even balance if that makes sense? If it had of been Blue or Tatum, it' too much of the same character.

I thought at the start, really a lioness, but then you know what I loved it, they never touched her and it made it more real and the way almost every where they went people would get shocked that they had her.

I am a romantic at heart, even in movies, scary and chic, a happy romantic ending is a good ending. I would had loved a little more...

I have to say, I think I'm in the minority that didn't like the names. I told one of my friends that it felt like the list of names you made for your kids when you were 12 and just picked COOL sounding names. And when she mentioned Tatum all I could think of was Channing Tatum and that's how I pictured him the whole time, not that it's a bad thing.

I really like her with Lazlo. I love the fact that he felt safe with her! I love that he's vulnerable and sweet! So many of our male love interests in books are so alpha male, I just loved that Lazlo was a sensitive artist type. That scene where they ended up in bed I just adore him and how he came out with his stained shirt missing his mom. So sweet and it just made the scene for me. I adored that scene and I wish there was more of them but I understand that it's YA.
