From the Publisher
An Amazon Best Book of the Month, January 2014: In Hollow City, Ransom Riggs continues the story that mesmerized readers in Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. With their island home compromised, and Miss Peregrine trapped in her bird state, Jacob and the other peculiars flee into the larger world and find themselves in war-torn 1940’s London. On those broken streets, with "blacked out windows staring like lidless eyes," Jacob learns to trust himself, finds comfort in belonging, and falls over the precipice into love. As in his earlier novel, Hollow City is filled with eerily fascinating vintage photographs, and like a seasoned magician Riggs seamlessly incorporates them into a story already so well established in many ways that such a feat seems remarkable.--Seira Wilson --This text refers to the MP3 CD edition.
From School Library Journal
Gr 8 Up—Listeners are hurled head first into Riggs's stormy seas, right where he abandoned us at the end of Miss Peregrine's Peculiar Children. The children, now loaded into three rowboats, have narrowly escaped the dangers that invaded their island, rescued Miss Peregrine from a weight-driven submarine, and now only need to row more than eight kilometers to mainland England. It will take all of the children's peculiar abilities to even make it to the shore—which is only the first stop on their near-impossible journey. Narrator Kirby Heyborne's pacing is deliberate and measured, matching the real-time pacing of the book, which takes place over the course of only a few days. The voices of our Peculiar friends are as quirky as the characters themselves, and are exceptionally well done. But much of the magic of these books is lost without immediate access to the unusual pictures which inspired the story, even though they are available on an included PDF. Recommended for libraries with the first audiobook or as an accompaniment to the print version.—Chani Craig, Great Falls Middle/Turners Falls High School, Montague, MA --This text refers to the MP3 CD edition.

also the kindle book has all the photograph's which I love!
This is not a horror story; this is not a pee-your-pants, bone-tingler; this is not for those who wish to shut the book in the freezer. Perhaps for this reason the books have been getting a mix of praise and abysmal reviews. Know what you are reading before you rate it in the trash bin. The book is about a group of teenagers. If you expected it to be anything but a tad bit creepy and chock full of odd, then shame on you.
The adventure continues on directly where the last book left off. This beginning is not made to just walk right into; you will need to read the first novel to understand the plight the children find themselves facing. As the story develops, we get to meet even more peculiar children and even a few peculiar animals, and the pacing for the whole plot is quite right. There is a deadline to this story, and we are certainly pushed along (while also getting to enjoy the scenery). The writing develops quite nicely in this sophomore novel as well as the plot. I can really feel this author getting his feet under him.
The book abruptly ends as with the first novel. The story itself is wrapped up nicely, but we are then presented with so many new questions. Excellent form of cliffhanger. I look forward to the third novel.
Wait until it is selling for .99 cents or get it from the library.
