Very witty.

I rather enjoyed this story. The details with my imagination, I felt as if I were a peculiar. I laughed, I cried, I felt every strong emotion from each and every character. I overall, am very pleased that the author has shared his stories.

    Hollow City. Hollow City. Where do I begin with you? After finis

    Hollow City. Hollow City. Where do I begin with you? After finishing Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, I had such high hopes for this book. The first book ended with such a dramatic cliff hanger that I immediately started Hollow City right after to find out what happens. And I did. Except it wasn't as epic as I was hoping it to be.   
    On average, it takes me about a week to finish a book (I'm a slow reader), a couple of days if it's a really good book, and usually no more than two weeks if the book isn't that great. It took me a month to finish Hollow City. Every time I'd pick it up it was a dreaded session. Had I not loved the first book so much, I think I would've dropped this book from the first 100 pages.
    This book was slow. Like turtle-speed slow. I found a lot of events that occurred were irrelevant and took too long to explain. In a book where romance isn't a big priority, I do appreciate there being more action or something else to grab the reader. This book had nothing. The entirety of the book was revolved around this one specific goal that at the end, was never accomplished because guess what? There's a third book. To me, I felt as if Hollow City was simply a filler novel. Out of the total 400 pages of the book, it wasn't until around halfway through that I felt somewhat interested in what was happening. Probably in the last 50 pages is when I really wanted to know what happens because it was this big build up to find out if what the characters were trying to accomplish was going to work.
    By the time I finally managed to finish this book, I was extremely disappointed with the outcome. I was looking for more and I didn't get any. With all of this, I don't think I'll be picking up the third book when it comes out (some time next year?). Sorry Ransom!

    Disappointing

    This book is not up to the standard set by the author's first book. I wasvery disappointed, especially after waiting so long for the sequel. I had the feeling he was on deadline and just had to churn something out. Very slow and a bit tedious. I have to hope it will get better in the next book. S. Clanahan

    Didn't advance the series

    I thoroughly enjoyed the first book, but this one did nothing but act as a placeholder for the series. To keep it relevant in people's minds for other purposes perhaps.
