Review : Hollow City (Book #2) by Ransom Riggs

“This second novel begins in 1940, immediately after the first book ended. Having escaped Miss Peregrine’s island by the skin of their teeth, Jacob and his new friends must journey to London, the peculiar capital of the world. Along the way, they encounter new allies, a menagerie of peculiar animals, and other unexpected surprises.”

  
I’m really enjoying this series so far, but i’m not going to lie, this book was a bit repetitive. The group of peculiars mostly just run from one place to an other and meeting other people. Some are nice, others are not….. this is what happens during 400pages. It’s not that i disliked it, but i felt like the story was not that interesting. The last couple of chapters were great, making me very excited for the next book! The characters are interesting, we have a nice, original cast of people. They are fun to follow around, but i did wish we could see them use their powers a bit more. I did have a bit of a problem with the romance, i found it dull. Nothing between them felt real, it was even a bit superficial. The writing style is great, i really enjoyed it and i’m excited to see more of Ransom Riggs stories! The black and white pictures adds a creepy/weird vibe to the story and i don’t think i would have like this series without them

Hollow City : 3.5/5
