Political Allegory of Rarity from the Hollow, an Adult Social Science Fiction Novel: The original on this novel was in 2006. The story predicted the rise of Donald Trump into political power. You would have to read it to find out how Lacy Dawn, the protagonist, convinced Mr. Rump (Bernie Sanders) to talk to Mr. Prump (Donald Trump), and how together they saved the universe. The political allegory includes pressing issues that America is fighting about today, including illegal immigration and the refuge crisis, extreme capitalism / consumerism, exploitation of underdeveloped territories, sexual harassment complaints, legalization of marijuana. Mr. Prump was a projection of Donald Trump based on the TV show, The Apprentice. Part of the negotiations in the story occur in the only high rise on planet Shptiludrp (Shop Until You Drop), a giant shopping mall and the center of economic governance, now more easily identifiable as Trump Tower. There is no political advocacy in the story, other than sensitizing readers to the huge social problem of child maltreatment, but the political allegory is much more obvious now that Donald Trump has become a household name. The revised edition of Rarity from the Hollow became available from Amazon on December 5, 2016. Half of author proceeds are donated to child abuse prevention.

On January 6, 2017, the first book review of the new edition of Rarity from the Hollow was published, five stars. The closing lines of the review were: "Brilliant satires such as this are genius works of literature in the same class as Orwells 'Animal Farm.' I can picture American Lit professors sometime in the distant future placing this masterpiece on their reading list." https://marcha2014.wordpress.com/2017/01/06/5-stars-for-rarity-from-the-hollowby-robert-eggleton/

2-12-17 Review of the Advance Review Copy (ARC) of Rarity from the Hollow: This reviewer probably was the closest to identifying the political allegory in the story. She didnt see that Mr. Prump, a character in the novel, was based on and a prediction that Donald Trump would rise to political power and become President. But, who would have at that time?
      
She Found: This book gives a scathing but almost understated description of our consumption/shopping obsessed society. The greed is absolutely mind-blowing and terrifying. The characters were complex and difficult for me to identify with, but that's ok - their personalities, life story, and values, developed in very surprising ways through-out the book, and each one became very much their own character. And yes, one could say that it was a coming of age/coming to empowerment of Lacy Dawn, a young girl, and a deconstruction of a robotic personality into one with more human qualities. I didn't realize until half way through that the idiosyncratic spelling of the planets' name was Shop Til You Drop - and how deadly serious the powers-that-be were in making mindless but competitive shoppers of everyone in the universe - which ultimately consumes every resource and destroys every planet but the WINNER. That will stay with me a long while.
   
Wendy Tuck, Amazon Reader Review, 6-23-15

The final edition of Rarity from the Hollow was released to Amazon on December 5, 2016. If I knew how to get in touch with Wendy, I would email accolades to her. She saw something in the ARC that many experienced book reviewers and critics missed, as did most others on our very fragile planet. 

Blurb:
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.

The most enjoyable science fiction novel I have read in years.
Temple Emmet Williams, Author, former editor for Readers Digest


Quirky, profane, disturbing In the space between a few lines we go from hardscrabble realism to pure sci-fi/fantasy. Its quite a trip.
   Evelyn Somers, The Missouri Review

a hillbilly version of Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxywhat I would have thought impossible; taken serious subjects like poverty, ignorance, abusetongue-in-cheek humor without trivializing themprofounda funny book that most sci-fi fans will thoroughly enjoy. -- Awesome Indies (Gold Medal)

sneaks up you and, before you know it, you are either laughing like crazy or crying in despair, but the one thing you wont be is unmoveda brilliant writer. --Readers Favorite (Gold Medal)

Rarity from the Hollow is an original and interesting story of a backwoods girl who saves the Universe in her fashion. Not for the prudish. Piers Anthony, New York Times bestselling author

Good satire is hard to find and science fiction satire is even harder to find. -- The Baryon Review

Coming Soon! Lacy Dawn, the protagonist, was interviewed on the Lisa Burton Radio Show by a robot girl. Together, they are hilarious as they talk about boys and romance, politics and saving the universe.

93rd book review, 27th five star review (excerpt):


What did I like? Having lived in the Ozarks and seen this type of poverty first hand I was impressed how the author took these things a step further without trivializing it. This was a humoristic look at that type of living and right out into outer limits into a serious problem that needed to be solved. Lacy was captivating with the childish/adult actions that she developed with the help of her new friend. Amazingly Robert even included the problems of our war heros and I liked his method of solving that problem.

What will you like? A charming and engaging storyline that is developed with lots of humor. Characters that will captivate you even with their silliness. You will see the work that the author has put into each page and look forward to the next adventure that takes Lacy and her family forward. I really enjoyed the book and even with its adult content I found it quite funny. I received this from the author for an honest review with no compensation.

Rarity from the Hollow, ARC Book Review (excerpt):

The author, Robert Eggleton, writes with the accuracy of familiarity about the lives of children caught in a multi-generational cycle of abuse; of men scarred by war and poverty, of PTSD, of the coping mechanisms of wives and mothers trying to hold families together The extra-terrestrial intervention addresses primarily the psychological and behavioural issues confronting Lacy Dawns family; the human intervention of a type beyond (or above?) the law, in a renegade Gates Foundation way I can think of other disturbing satiresbut carry a strong message: A Clockwork Orange, for onesome passages are very funny.  https://marianlthorpe.com/2016/04/12/rarity-from-the-hollow-by-robert-eggleton-a-review/comment-page-1/#comment-695

Rarity from the Hollow is a daring, unique, and fascinating read...serious real-world issues through a zany sci-fi adventure. Its written well enough to be called literary fiction and creative enough to grab the intention of seasoned and new speculative fiction fans alike...brilliant. It feels timeless, classic and mature in a way that would ensure its longevity if more people knew about it. I would even say it could be read in a college setting both for the craft itself and its unique brand of storytelling. The premise is brilliant and brought a distinctive approach to the adult-fairytale/modern-retelling sub-genre, and the story balances.

5-1-17 Meet Angel from North Carolina, owner of Lore Lush Books. Today, she joined hundreds of other beautiful book bloggers all over the world by introducing Rarity from the Hollow, a zany adult literary science fiction novel that contributes to the prevention of child maltreatment.

http://www.lorelushbooks.com/blog/author-interview-robert-eggleton/

For a limited time, the eBook version of Rarity from the Hollow is on sale for $2.99 at Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B017REIA44/ref=tsm_1_fb_lk The paperback edition is 20% off here: http://www.lulu.com/shop/http://www.lulu.com/shop/robert-eggleton/rarity-from-the-hollow/paperback/product-22927162.html

Project Updates: https://www.facebook.com/Lacy-Dawn-Adventures-573354432693864/ and https://twitter.com/roberteggleton1

Angels post includes two excerpts of the book and a series of answers to her questions, including:

Angel: How does your story stand out from the crowd?

Eggleton: If you check out the book reviewson Amazon posted by independent book bloggers, one very common finding is that my story is uniquea hillbilly version of Hitchhikers Guide to the GalaxyThe author has managed to do what I would have thought impossible; taken serious subjects like poverty, ignorance, abuse, and written about them with tongue-in-cheek humor without trivializing themsucks you into the Hollow, dunks you in the creek, rolls you in the mud, and splays you in the sun to dry off. Tucked between the folds of humor are some profound observations on human nature and modern society that you have to read to appreciateits a funny book that most sci-fi fans will thoroughly enjoy. Awesome Indies

Also, Rarity from the Hollow is the first, perhaps the only, science fiction adventure to specifically predict the rise of Donald Trump to political power. I dont want to give your readers the wrong impression. There is no political advocacy in the story, one side or any other. In parody, the story does include social commentary about some of the issues that are being debated today: the refugee crisis, illegal immigration, sexual harassment.

Last, since Rarity from the Hollow is literary, and because the early tragedy amplifies subsequent comedy and satire a fun read unlike some books that are quickly forgotten after the last page has been read, mine provides food for thought to enjoy for a long time another common finding by book reviewers who posted on Amazon.

97th Book Blog Review: Rarity from the Hollow (scroll to bottom)
« Reply #63 on: June 03, 2017, 10:15:31 AM »
All reviews of Rarity from the Hollow on Amazon were posted by independent book blog reviewers. Additional reviews by a few book critics are available but not posted on Amazon due to the critics' policies of not participating in marketing of books in any form. Many of the reviews of this novel were of the Advance Reviewing Copy (ARC). The final edition was released as a paperback on November 3, 2016 and as an eBook on December 5, 2016.

2016 Final Edition, Overall Finding of the 97th Book Review: In conclusion, Rarity from the Hollow was quite the unusual book. It had some details that weren't fully to my reader's taste, but even so it was a novel filled with wonders. It had original characters, interesting situations, episodes that brought a smile on my face and it also can make you think. I would recommend it to fans of modern literature and sci-fi lovers who don't shy from more unusual storytellings and give it 4 out of 5 stars. http://topchochanbooks.blogspot.bg/2017/05/book-reviewrarity-from-hollow.html

6-22-17 Meet Marianne from Manchester, U.K., close to where Rarity from the Hollow was published, but a long way from the hollow in West Virginia. Her blog includes book reviews and a potpourri of meanderings, including about films, plays, poetry, short stories. Especially impressive to me was Mariannes grouping of childrens books from pre-schoolers up to books for young adults. Perhaps her love of children was one reason why she joined an international movement to sensitize readers to the huge social problem of child maltreatment through a comical and satiric adult science fiction adventure. Theres something here for all lovers of the written word: https://bookslifeandeverything.blogspot.co.uk/2017/05/rarity-from-hollow-by-robert-eggleton_22.html

ARC Review: The problem with loving a specific genre of books is that sooner or later you will find that you've read it all. For months at a time it will seem that every other book you pick up is just another dystopian novel set upon a craft hurtling through space or just another super-human story with a protagonist subjected to a lifetime of intrusive and unnecessary tests. It is very rare indeed that a book stops you in your tracks and tells a story that is completely unique and ever so slightly weird.

Robert Eggleton's Rarity from the Hollow is just such a book. If I had to try describe it, I'd say it is a cross between an episode of Doctor Who and Jeff Noon's Vurt. It is a trippy and surreal story about a girl from a severely unprivileged environment who falls in love with an extra-terrestrial android who, it turns out, has genetically modified her ancestors since pre-historic times to breed the girl who will eventually save the universe.

Lacy Dawn is the girl and DotCom is the android who has been reprogramming Lacy Dawn's mind for years, training her to become the saviour she is destined to become. Neither counted on falling in love with the other.
Rarity from the Hollow is quite possibly the oddest book I have ever read. Which is not a bad thing. It is funny and irreverant but beneath the hallucinatory story of visits to shopping planets and interstellar shopping games, there is a profound critique of social problems, substance abuse, child sexual abuse and child murder that is quite eye opening. It is all well and good to paint a brush and fix a society, but what exactly would it take to fix the myriad of social problems in underprivileged areas in the real world?

Rarity from the Hollow is very, very goodI'd recommend Rarity from the Hollow...a side helping of the lunatic with their science fiction and fantasy.

5 Star Review and Interview: I really enjoyed reading Rarity from the Hollow. Its so different and so well-written. I also love that it creates awareness in readers about mental health and different types of abuse and that its told in a way that isnt too heavy. There wasnt a single dull moment and I would highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for something out of the ordinary. Paperback Darling book blog.

Rarity from the Hollow is one of those strange and exciting bits of literature that captures you with its uniqueness and then lingers on your mind, reasserting itself from time to time to remind you that your reality may not be everyone else's. A rich and original work, full of aspects and images that are certain to make it worth recommending to friends you wish to impress. Not for everyone, but for those ready to embrace the offbeat, a welcome surprise." -- William F. DeVault, 2017-2018 National Beat Poetry Festival's Poet Laureate for the United States.

Best Customer Review Ive Ever Read: Heartbreakingly Tragic Yet Funny and Satiric http://amzn.to/2xTqKqP

Almost all of the reviews of my novel have been written by independent book bloggers. This one, posted today, was a complete surprise and I have no idea who this person is or why he decided to post a review. Apparently, it's someone who noticed one of my self-promotional posts on Facebook and decided to buy my book. In any case, please check it out and if you like it, please click YES that it was helpful. Too few customers that we, as writers, don't know take the time to write reviews. I have no idea if this person would notice, but it would be totally cool is some public acknowledgment would be expressed just in case.

Thanks, Robert

Re: Was the Invasion of Niger Predicted in a SciFi Novel? (Scroll to bottom)
« Reply #73 on: October 29, 2017, 08:48:05 AM »
Similar to the likely attempt to exploit Niger, where La David and other U.S. soldiers have been killed for its uranium, the process of exploiting planets for mineral content in Rarity from the Hollow was called "shrinkage." The Scoring Council voted on which planets with sentient life forms were ineligible for survival, and created a game based on "getting the best deals" with shopping on planet Shptiludrp (Shop Until You Drop) to establish a procedure for an appeal to justified the planet's continued existence. Shopping became a very popular way, accepted by everybody, to justify life based on consumerism principles. I'm sad that so much in my novel has become our reality.
