Synopsis

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.

Sequel worth of the first novel
January 5th, 2015
I had high hopes for this novel because Miss Peregrine was the author's debut and there's a chance it was a dud. To my delight, the sequel Hollow City was incredibly gripping and thrust the story forward introducing even more fascinating characters and plot twists. Can't wait for the next one!

Creepy but stale
November 13th, 2014
While I enjoyed the novelty of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, Hollow City didn't have the same charm for me. It seemed like it was trying too hard to fit the story to the pictures, which dampened the appeal for me. And with Jacob and the Peculiars on the run for most of this book, it felt like there were too many characters in his troupe- most were underused and it felt like Riggs was creating reasons to leave them behind; this kind of slowed down the novel. As in the previous book, Jacob was a pretty bland protagonist (oh no, another bland rich white boy who finds out he has special powers! Yawn). Otherwise, I enjoyed the story and the conceit of Jacob's world - Riggs is great at world building, but kinds of loses it when it comes to characterization.

Spooky!

Spooky but nonetheless a fun read, and not just for kids but for adults as well. It would be helpful to read the first book though.

Wow.

At times this book felt as though it was twisting just so a particular photograph could be justifiably entered into the book, but it is quite a peculiar tale...

I can't wait for the next book!!!
January 24th, 2014
This book is a real page turner! And I loved that the photos are just the right amount of creepy. A lot of stories are easy to predict but not this one, I keep on wanting to read more and screamed in frustration at the last page. Please come sooner third installment of Ms. Peregrine's Peculiar Children.

One of my favourite books so far, liked the first book so much i bought Hollow City the day it came out, finished it in 2 days! Such a good series, very chilling and eerie at times but yet full of adventure and full of surprises every chapter. I'd highly recommend reading it :)
