Author: Ranson Riggs
I really enjoyed the first book, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, and I have now finished Hollow City which is the second book in this trilogy. I kind of cheated and listened to this one, but I am so pleased I did. The audio was fantastic.
The narration of this audio made the book was just perfect for bringing alive the characters. I would have done this in my own little mind, but in this case I think the audio did a better job than I would have. I give credit to the presentation of the audio version which I purchased through Kindle as an add on to the book.
Now to the plot. Also fantastic! I have enjoyed both books and where the author is taking me is unstoppable. I have to read the next one too, I can't be left stranded now.
The presentation is also something that gives this trilogy life. The characters are very unusual but the pictures, which look like photographs, enable the reader to envision the characters the way he has. Very clever! And as for these peculiar little kids I am impressed by the imagination behind the creation of each one. They all fit into the plot in their own unique way.
Overall, a series I am pleased I didn't disregard, like I was tempted to when I first came across it. I have enjoyed this book even more than the first, and the movie.
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.
