Review of Hollow City by Ransom Riggs

 Hollow City (Miss Peregrine, #2)

 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.


My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I absolutely loved, loved, loved this book. It was better than the first book which I found truly amazing. Once again I love the way the photos connect to the story so well. Hollow City picks up exactly where Miss Peregrine's left off and it's a nail biter all the way through. So fast paced and so well written and a great cliff hanger ending. I can't wait for the next one. Can I have it now please.
