Hollow City Review


September 3, 1940. Ten peculiar children flee an army of deadly monsters. And only one person can help them—but she’s trapped in the body of a bird. The extraordinary journey that began in Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children continues as Jacob Portman and his newfound friend’s journey to London, the peculiar capital of the world. There, they hope to find a cure for their beloved headmistress, Miss Peregrine. But in this war-torn city, hideous surprises lurk around every corner. And before Jacob can deliver the peculiar children to safety, he must make an important decision about his love for Emma Bloom.

Let me start out by saying I love Hollow City by Ransom Riggs. I loved Miss Peregrine’s Home as well, though it was a bit harder for me to get into. I think if I would have listened to the audiobook with the first the way I had with Hollow City, I may have liked it more. Kirby Heyborn reads the audiobook and let me tell you, if I ever get a book made into an audiobook, I want him to read it. His voice are amazing. I’m really disappointed that this book hasn’t been made into a movie after the first. This book follows the kids into war which I enjoyed reading about. Probably because my grandpa served in WWII and I have a particular fondness for that period of time.
