The Hollow is an entertaining murder mystery novel. The complex relationships among the characters and the dynamics of the story will keep you hooked until you reach the final page, when justice is made (or maybe not?!)
The "learnings" were derived from 3 books that focused on the murder mysteries set in university campuses: The Secret History by Donna Tartt, Book of Mirrors by E.O. Chirovici, and The Truants by Kate Weinberg.
Reading Midwinter Murder was like transporting myself in a winter universe where all kind of mysterious happenings take place. And in this universe you have bits and pieces of the best of Agatha Christie.
A modern whodunnit, a story about friendship and betrayal, transition (or not) to adulthood, "The Truants" is a story I recommend if you're interested in reading murder mysteries and / or stories with a strong literature flavour. For a great experience, try playing truant while reading the book! 🙂
