Book Description

14 Jan 2014
"Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children" was the surprise best seller of 2011--an unprecedented mix of YA fantasy and vintage photography that enthralled readers and critics alike. Publishers Weekly called it "an enjoyable, eccentric read, distinguished by well-developed characters, a believable Welsh setting, and some very creepy monsters."
This second novel begins in 1940, immediately after the first book ended. Having escaped Miss Peregrine's island by the skin of their teeth, Jacob and his new friends must journey to London, the peculiar capital of the world. Along the way, they encounter new allies, a menagerie of peculiar animals, and other unexpected surprises.
Complete with dozens of newly discovered (and thoroughly mesmerizing) vintage photographs, this new adventure will delight readers of all ages.

3.0 out of 5 stars Just OK 2 Mar 2014
Format:Hardcover
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.

By Denis Vukosav TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
"Hollow City" by Ransom Riggs is the second novel in the Miss Peregrine's Peculiar Children series, a sequel of the one of most innovative releases in recent years that even having children in its name is certainly not a title that will interest (only) children.
Seems a lot longer than two and a half years have passed since the release of the original first part in series, but after reading this sequel all can be said that we are glad the author waited to publish it because its quality is at least on same or even higher level - second book certainly not a work written only to earn money as soon as possible.

The action continues where previous part ended, while Jacob and other peculiar kids home was destroyed though they managed to save Miss Peregrine captured in bird form from the wights, unable to turn back into a human form.
Jacob and the other will escape to war London from the 40-ies, the peculiar capital of the world, in order to find help for Miss Peregrine...

"Hollow City" story on its 400 pages is never once boring or slow, being a real page turner until the cliffhanger ending, as expected to again eagerly wait for the next sequel.
What is the most positive surprise is the level of development experienced by the characters in relation to the last part, now they are more serious, more adult, and the relationships among them are far more serious.

The author once again made great photographs managing to make a fantastic story around each of presented characters so that the reader really does not know whether were first photographs found then text created, or vice versa, because they simply fantastically complement.

I really enjoyed the first book and came with high hopes to the sequel. Sadly, it was not a patch on the first for originality (fair enough) or plot or adventure. Read more
