Hollow City: The Second Novel of Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children

We rated this book:


This book was creepy but still a good story. The story begins as Jacob, Emma, and the other Peculiar children leave the island home they have always known to escape the evil Wights. Their protector, Miss Peregrine, is stuck in the form of a bird, and to help her they have to find another protector to change her back. Unfortunately, the Wights have been capturing all the protectors for an unknown purpose, so the children have to journey to WWII London in search of someone who can help. Along the way, they meet many other Peculiar people, not all of whom are good. Jacob is in love with Emma, and she shares his feelings, but feels that Jacob should leave the Peculiar world and go back to his own family while he still can, while the other children can’t. But they have to save Miss Peregrine, and Jacob is also trying to pick up his grandfather’s legacy of being a Hollowgast slayer.

In the story there are lots of black-and-white vintage photographs which illustrate the characters and the scenes. They were intriguing and creepy, and it was an interesting story woven around these genuine photos. I think sometimes the author just added in characters to go along with the photos, but I enjoyed the story.
