I read Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children on my e-reader and one of the most important things I noticed was that the pictures did not work that well on an e-reader. When I walked into Hollow City in the bookstore I decided to get myself a paper copy this time and this really worked great!! I loved the pictures in the first book already and the ones in Hollow City are great extra's for the story too.
Hollow City is one big adventure. Searching for Miss Peregrine Jacob and the Peculiar children have to travel trough England while WWII is going around. Having problems connecting to the characters in the first book it was easier to connect to them in this one. The children run into a lot of realistic problems that return in any book about the war making it easier to connect to them despite their unnatural characteristics. I really enjoyed Olive and Horace in this book. Though pictured as the youngest and weakest of the peculiar children they still stand up for themselves and have their own opinion.
