Book Review

On Hollow Ground by Donald Gavron

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

If it seems clear, you haven’t understood this book. The author weaves a tale that revolves around the protagonist Troy Fox and a mysterious book of knowledge. There’s a lot of ambiguity as Troy proceeds in an underworld odyssey through the world. Does whoever controls the book control the world? Or, is the book just a string of self-help aphorisms worthy of a late night infomercial? The author takes us on a journey where we may find this out (or not). It’s a short fast read; more a novella length than a novel. There are four short stories included at the end; they are pretty good, One is horror and a couple seem autobiographical.
