Hollow City is another fabulous book. I read the first book in the series, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, and loved it. So I was really excited for this one to come out. Here’s a little about the book:
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.
I really liked this one, but found it a little confusing at times. There was a lot of time travel and it was hard to keep track of what time they were in. The story was fun and exciting and whimsical, just like the first book. You got to know the characters a bit better and my favorite part about both of these books are the photos that are incorporated throughout the book. It’s a fun addition to an already entertaining book.
Overall, if you liked the first book, definitely read this one. And if you haven’t read the first one, I highly recommend reading it. Everyone I have talked to that has read it has loved it, too.
