Fiction, Young Adult

Hollow City by Ransom Riggs

“Strange, I thought, how you can be living your dreams and your nightmares at the very same time.”


Ok so I got back to the world of Peculiar and it was quite an adventure. Only one mission the peculiar children were focused on in this novel and that was to help Miss Peregrine.

It’s a good thing that Riggs included photographs of the characters of the story. Made it helpful for me to remember who was who. I also enjoyed other photographs of new peculiars the children met through their mission. I still find it kind creepy but fascinated at the same time.

The plot was simple to recognize but getting to their destination was problematic. It is in the era of war time and so much detail description of how people were suffering made me a little squeamish. It was a little difficult to read since children were involved, (I’m a mother so yeah).

The relationship between Jacob and Emma was growing. It wasn’t fast paced, it was more of a slow process, which I prefer. It was nice to see their infatuation toward one another wasn’t the main focus in this story. It does suck that they don’t have much time to at least have a moment for themselves but that’s how it is when your trying to survive.

This book was pretty fast paced and it was an attention grabber. Main reason I kept reading it was how I wanted to see how it was going to end. But of course another obstacle came for these peculiars. This whole story was concentrating on how to help Miss Peregrine and even though it took basically the whole novel for her to get the help, it was not boring to say the least and that’s why I give this book ⭐️⭐️⭐️.5 out of 5 stars. Would I continue this series? I believe so. I would like to know the outcome to Jacob and all of peculiars.

Hope you all liked my review. Until then…
