Bookreview: Hollow City by Ransom Riggs

If you haven’t read Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children there will be probably spoilers.


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 review

In this nerve-racking second part of the Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children we get to know more about the characters who all have this special personality. As I told you in my review of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children I can say now how the other characters are like. 🙂

Emma is confident and all the other children look up to her. Throughout the story she finds herself having trouble with all the responsibility on her shoulders. She’s deffinetly my favourite character.
Millard is the smart one but he likes to joke too. What I like about his character is that he can be considerate if he has to be and I didn’t really expect that from him.
Bronwyn is the mom of the group. She takes care of the little children and makes sure everybody feels good.
Olive is the second smallest child and she’s so cute but she’s brave too. Olive is very understanding en nosy and she’s just so lovely.
Horace always wants to look fine and is probably to less brave of all, but we can’t blame him for that. At the end he wants to prove himself which is quite cute.
Enoch is the “mean one”. He always says what he thinks and isn’t exactly understanding. Still, I kind of like him.
I don’t know really how Hugh is. He’s loyal but not as noble as the main character, Jacob. But I don’t think it’s something bad.
Left are Fiona and Claire.
Fiona is a very quiet person but you can see she feels good with Hugh and Claire is pretty scary with her second mouth yet she’s cute.

This book was so exciting and even better than the first book. We get to know more about the characters and this world. It’s amazing how Ransom Riggs created a world like this one!
And can I just say: THAT PLOT TWIST!!! Didn’t saw that coming! Like wow!!!

Now we’ll have to wait untill the last book.

Did you read Hollow City? What did you think of it? Are you excited for Library of Souls? I can’t wait! 😀
