Hi Guys! It’s Jordan from ReadGeekx3 with a book review for the second book in the Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children Book Series, Hollow City. This is our second review in our Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children Review Series, in which we review all the books in the series leading up to the release of Library of Souls, the third book of the series.
(This review may contain plot points from the first book, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children)
This book follows Jacob and the peculiar gang after they leave for the mainland on a quest to find a cure to restore Miss Peregrine, who is now stuck in the body of a bird, to her human form. This journey sends them from their safe and secluded home on Cairnholm to the war-ridden city of London, which also happens to be the peculiar capital of the world. But as they quest, the scale of the situation they are in becomes increasingly clear, and they realize that the choices they make may affect not only them, but all of peculiardom.
This book takes what made the first book such a great thing and improves on it, introducing even more peculiar characters and expanding even more on the universe in which this book is set in. This book also gives us more of the vernacular photographs that made the first book so captivating. I really do love this book, but there are a few certain issues I find hard to overlook. For example, the sheer amount of characters that are in the story continually makes it hard to keep track of all of them, and more than once I found myself forgetting that a character was in the story at the moment because they had not been mentioned for a while. But this wasn’t nearly big enough of a complaint to stump my love for this book.
I love this book! It improves on the first book and gets me even more excited for Library of Souls, which comes out in 8 days! I give this book 4.5/5 stars! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 1/2
Library of Souls, the third and final book in the Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children series, goes on sale on September 22 and is available for preorder now!
