I just read my review of the first book since it's been three years between the two books and I didn't love it as much as I thought I did. I did like it a lot though, but enjoyed this one less. As the first book, it is a slow story, not a page turner, but an intriguing atmospheric story. The photographs really do enhance and perhaps, even make, the story. This time around though the photos are much less creepy and weird. They do fit into the story very well though, and you can tell at times the author probably wrote a scene to match a photo rather than finding photos to fit his scenes. If the next book is the last in a trilogy, I'll definitely read it, but if it's only the next in a much longer series, I think I'd give them a pass.

I kind of hate Ransom Riggs.

For a book that was so boring I could have died, the last 3 chapters made the whole thing worthwhile - almost.

The last chapters of the book were filled with everything imaginable: suspense, danger, fighting, death, love, goodbyes, MORE peculiars, excitement, surprises, shocks, and worst of all - A FREAKING CLIFFHANGER!

Why damn it? WHY?!

He left us at such a fantastic point of the novel that I just KNOW I'm going to be waiting for the third installment to come out so I can buy it and read it and find out what happens next. Even though, I disliked about 80% of this book!

See, here's my problem with this book - and the same problem I faced with the first book - it bores me. It is such a fascinatingly, interesting story, with such a great plot and wonderful twists, and the coolest, weirdest, unique-est cast EVER. And even though Ransom Riggs writes well, no, he writes wonderfully, brilliantly, beautifully, it's just not what the books needs. The style of writing seems at odds with the actual story. His writing style is dry, and static, and does not change in tone, despite all the madness taking place in his story. I read paragraph after paragraph after paragraph and I feel my eyes glaze over and my mind wander. I found the only way I can read this and actually enjoy it is by skimming through most of the description and narration, and get to the dialogue, because the dialogue is great. The dialogue is exciting and interesting and it conveys the emotions that I am looking for to make this novel worth reading to the end.

Thing is, Riggs has a way of not writing anything worthwhile until the very end.

Hmmmm...

That pretty much sums up my feelings towards this book. It's not a bad book, but did it make the same kind of impression as the first in the series? No.

There is nothing wrong with this book. It just lacks any sort of "wowfactor", meaning I could really take it or leave it. Halfway through, I almost gave up and had to really push myself to keep going.

The problem for me is that it feels like a sequel. Like a book that was written with a lucrative movie deal in mind, rather than a story that needed to be told.

The result is a rather formulaic offering- like painting by numbers. The peculiars, the hollows, the wights are all there, as are some fairly predictable "twists", it's just hard to care enough to respond with any degree of surprise.

I read the first book twice and would happily read it a third time. I didn't have anything like the same connection to the 2nd book.

I'm not in the habit of leaving things half done, so I will read the third book. After the let down of the 2nd, I won't get too excited.

Hollow City picks up where Miss Peregrine’s left off, with Jacob Portman and his peculiar friends barely escaping the island of Cairnholm, with Miss Peregrine incapacitated and constantly hunted by the wights and their grisly minions, the hollows.
Journeying across a Britain ravaged by World War II, the children stumble across news of a cure for Miss Peregrine, now trapped permanently in her bird form and with time running out for their protector, head for London, the Peculiar capital of the world.
With the introductions out of the way in book one, Riggs now has the time and scope to offer a much bigger story than he was previously, while also expanding on the characters and building on the mythology of the Peculiars. The pace has picked up significantly and while the original felt a little static at times, the opposite is the case here. There is rarely a lull as the children stumble their way in and out of danger in a much more linear fashion and although they have no idea of what will happen once they reach their goal, they continue to push forward faced with the truth that there is no going back. Tension is expertly created throughout, building to several life-threatening crescendos, its opus being a brilliantly devious twist at the conclusion.
It’s also a story about conflict, both internal and external with Jacob worried about the impact of his disappearance on his parents and his relationship with Emma, and the other peculiars torn between their sometimes misguided loyalties and doing the right thing when faced with adversity and the threat of death. What’s interesting about Riggs’ Peculiars is that they’re not treated as superheroes and they don’t act like them either.
