The extraordinary journey that began in Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children continues as Jacob Portman and his newfound friends journey to London the peculiar capital of the world. But in this war-torn city, hideous surprises lurk around every corner. Like its predecessor, this second novel in the Peculiar Children series blends thrilling fantasy with never-before-published vintage photography to create a one-of-a-kind reacting experience
“I liked this idea: that peculiarness wasn't a deficiency, but an abundance; that it wasn't we who lacked something normals had, but they who lacked peculiarness. That we were more, not less.”
I haven't come across a book I loved as much as Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. It's lovely cast of characters is a tough match to beat. However, I have to say, I just read a book I loved more, and it just happens to be Hollow City. The sequel to Miss Peregrine's, so I don't feel all that bad!
Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children is probably one of my all time favourite reads. I have re-read it 4 times since and love my visits with the characters...my old friends. They are truly some of the most remarkable characters I have ever read. When I heard they were coming back for Hollow City to say I was excited would have been an understatement. I couldn't wait to get my hands on it and see what my favourite characters were up to now!
The photos in Hollow City are just as beautifully weird as the first book. And without surprise, the author intertwines the photos flawlessly with the story. The characters burst to life immediately. Each of their personalities shining magically; Each standing out but never overshadowing one another.
I loved reading Jacob's character, and the growth of his character. Miss Peregrines children will not be the only peculiar you come across in Hollow City. You will visit many loops and come across many different characters!
Hollow City was one absolutely amazing, wild ride! Everything I hoped for and more! The wait for the final book in the series will be a long one for me!
