Book Review | Hollow Kingdom

Hollow Kingdom

by Kira Jane Buxton

The world as we know it has ended, and the apocalypse is narrated by S.T. (for Shit Turd), a brilliant, if extremely profane, domesticated crow. S.T.’s owner, Big Jim, has succumbed to the deadly virus that is turning all humans into zombies. So S.T. – along with Dennis, an endearing dog – are off to cope with a world without humans and, incidentally, to save what imprisoned pets they can in the aftermath of humans’ demise.

A funny, tragic, and brilliantly original novel with an environmental message. And you’ll never look at pets (or your cell phone) the same way again.
