  1. Hi, I m Ransom, and I like to tell stories Sometimes I tell them with words, sometimes with pictures, often with both I grew up on a farm on the Eastern shore of Maryland and also in a little house by the beach in Englewood, Florida where I got very tan and swam every day until I became half fish I started writing stories when I was young, on an old typewriter that jammed and longhand on legal pads When I was a little older I got a camera for Christmas and became obsessed with photography, and when I was a little older still my friends and I came into possession of a half broken video camera and began to make our own movies, starring ourselves, using our bedrooms and backyards for sets I have loved writing stories and taking photographs and making movies ever since, and have endeavored to do all three.

  3. Check out Scott Reads It for reviews Miss Peregrine s Home For Peculiar Children is one of my all time favorite books and I ve been waiting to read Hollow City for ages As soon as I received Hollow City, I began to devour this strange book and I believe Hollow City is even better than Mrs P s Hollow City does an excellent job of creating a captivating, magical world and accompanying the plot with finely selected vintage photos.The photographs in Hollow City are just as bizarre and outlandish as [...]

  4. HOLY CRAP I CAN T EVEN I ll write my thoughts when I m able to GATHER my thoughts, but know that I LOVED THIS BOOK SO MUCH.

  5. SpoilersDisappointing The plot was uninteresting, the characters were unremarkable, and the romance was lame Summary Miss Peregine s school and the time loop she created destroyed by hollows wights the bad guys, the peculiars students on the run, Miss Peregine poisoned and not able to fix the loop and protect her kids, Jacob and the other peculiars have to avoid the bad guys and find another headteacher to help Miss Peregine get back to normal The majority of Hollow City was dull, there was too [...]

  6. Are you still into the creepy vintage photos Welcome to a Deeper, maturer, richer convenient sequelally sad we won t watch a Movie out of itTim Burton only concluded the whole series in an ending that s even worse than Book One s, it almost made me ditch Book Two.I m glad I didn t, unexpectedly loved it, this time Ransom Riggs here add depth into the world he built in book one THE PECULIARDOMThe wonders and mystical world of Peculiarity, their animals, different loops, history.Mixed with the r [...]

  7. I definitely enjoyed this book than the first installment when I read it a two years ago There were definitely slower moments that were rough to get through, but ultimately, I really enjoyed how the plot progressed in this novel and cannot wait to see how it ends

  8. 3.5 stars.Unfortunately, Hollow City is a case of Second Book Syndrome.Extremely slow start, with many scenarios that I found just too far fetched view spoiler Really Really EVERY single group they came upon had at least one peculiar person with them I call Bull on that hide spoiler There has to be a suspension of belief when reading any work of fiction, especially fantasy But it was too far a stretch for me to believe that the events could happen so easily Not that the characters had an easy jo [...]

  9. The peculiar children are on the run Danger at every turn Until finallyokay, there s a twist thrown in While Ransom Riggs Hollow City is a well written sequel in which we learn about the nature of the peculiars and their enemies , overall, I wasn t as wowed or intrigued To me, it felt like the filler of a 3 book series Will I read Library of Souls Not sure yet

  10. What I believe is that when it comes to big things in life, there are no accidents Everything happens for a reason You are here for a reason and it s not to fail and die Hollow City is DARKER and CREEPIER than book one I was really glad to finally see what s going on with children at the beginning of this book The world of this book is madness, it s not something joyful for someone Emma becomes a lead character in Hollow City, and her courage makes this book turn out to be the unputdownable one. [...]

  11. Did not finish at 67%People who know me, know so well that I d rather cry out of boredom while reading a book than actually give up on it My DNF shelf has only two books and this is the third.I know it s unfair to rate an unfinished book, but it s also unfair that this book is that bad.I don t regret this decision, not one bit This is the first book in my reading history to have me struggling with even opening the cover, I ve struggled since page one and then I thought that no I wouldn t be the [...]

  12. 3.5 starsI felt like this was a lull between the first one and the finale While there s action and adventure it seemed mostly like an info dump to bridge the gap between the end pieces It was certainly entertaining than the first one, but only marginally.There is a quest to bring the group s ymbryne to Miss Wren, whose first name isThere are some new characters introduced in this book such as a talking dog named Addison, a pair of blind brothers who use echolocation, a telekinetic girl, and ano [...]

  13. That ending has killed me Well and truly killed meBut anyway, this book is utterly brilliant I absolutely adored Miss Peregrine s home for peculiar children and had pretty high hopes for this book All I can say is that this book was better than I could ve ever hoped and may well be the best sequel I have read in my life The characters in this book are all so incredibly unique and precious They re written so well and the dialogue relationships they have with one another all feel so real Every sin [...]

  14. 4.5 HOLLOW STARS Strange, I thought, how you can be living your dreams and your nightmares at the very same time I only picked this one up because I recently ended up watching the movie adaption of Miss Peregrine s Home For Peculiar Children and that kind of got me back in the mood to continue this series.But I gotta say, I enjoyed this one so much than the first book I m really glad I decided to continue this trilogy, I can only imagine how crazy the last book is going to get It s not that I n [...]

  15. I love this series The peculiar children in these novels are so fascinating This story had me hooked just like the first book did There were parts I wasn t crazy about but it was still good and the pictures were good, too Looking forward to the next in the series

  16. I thoroughly enjoyed this I did prefer the first book, because the mystery elements really are what captivated me so much, and I found this second book to be a lot formulaic I found the first quarter of the book a bit hard to get into which is why this is one star less than I rated the first one But otherwise, I did really enjoy it His writing style continues to be beautiful, and I adore the aesthetic I am really happy that he went there with things like freak shows because that fits the vibe s [...]

  17. The Hollow City is the second installment in Rigg s trilogy of the Peculiar Children s exciting adventure, and it is a worthy following of its predecessor But did I enjoy it as much as the first volume The answer is a hesitant no.Hesitant bceause I cannot, clearly, state what it was that made me feel that something was missing Up until the 45% mark, it was a real page turner, then, gradually, I seemed to lose interest Perhaps, I couldn t fully connect with it as I was reading the first two volum [...]

  21. What a disappointmentI had so many expectations about this one but it only let me down I had loved the first book in the series, Miss Peregrine s Home for Peculiar Children I wanted so much to love this one too but unfortunately the only good thing about this book was the photos, which like in the first book, they blew me away by how real and authentic they look.This one lacked the magic the first book had, it was kind of idiotic and the author tried to take an even darker turn to the events but [...]

  22. Hollow City is one of those sequel novels that irons out many of the kinks in the first novel It further goes to prove that the quality of children s and young adult fiction is improving all the in this day and age Where once such books were throw away pieces to pass the time till younger readers could engage with serious pieces of literature, today they are or should be recognised as being equally serious and nuanced with the same level of power as books regarded as mature.In Hollow City the [...]

  23. DNF around 20% I just can t get into this I m not attached to the characters or the story at all, and I have too many other books I d like to read than this.

  24. This novel features a picture of a bulldog smoking a pipe It was my everything.If you have forgotten the events of the first entry in this series or read it a long time ago, I d highly suggest a quick re read or a glance at the synopsis to familiarise yourself with the events from the first book The reason for this is that the second novel in the Miss Peregrine series picks up directly at the end of the first one, with our bunch of peculiar children heading to the mainland in their rowboat to es [...]

  25. I absolutely freaking adored this book I didn t think it possible to get better than the first book but it most definitely did The story is even gripping and as I got to know about the world of peculiars, I couldn t help but fall even in love This book is jam packed with action and is absolutely nerve wracking from start to finish I loved getting to know my favourite characters as well as being introduced to new ones which I can t wait to learn about in the next book I also really enjoyed t [...]
