Description

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children was the surprise best seller of 2011 - an unprecedented mix of YA fantasy and vintage photography that enthralled audiences and critics alike. Publishers Weekly called it "an enjoyable, eccentric read, distinguished by well-developed characters, a believable Welsh setting, and some very creepy monsters."

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 surprises.

Complete with dozens of newly discovered (and thoroughly creepy) vintage photographs, this new adventure will delight fantasy fans of all ages.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

Critiques

"[Heyborne] moves masterfully among the large cast of characters, creating distinct British voices for each of Jacob's peculiar friends. Heyborne's sense of timing, evident pleasure in the material, and ability to thrillingly execute the book's many dramatic moments will keep listeners riveted." ( AudioFile)

Different narrator

The first book had a very young sounding guy reading. This guy is a major change. It took me a while to get used to his voice but in the end it sounded right for the part.

Peculiar and Suspenseful

A very well written suspenseful adventure! I do recommend that you read Book #1 first otherwise you might be a bit lost because of all the unique references in Peculiardom.
Lost of twist and turns. Very unique and creative.

Suspenseful & Frustrating

Our peculiar hero's are trapped emotionally and perceptively as children with decades of experience with the same day. I don't think you could create a more devilishly agonizing fatal flaw.

A GREAT Part 2!!!!

What did you love best about Hollow City?

It keeps the story going and has some great twists and turns. I could hardly stop listening to this book.

Who was your favorite character and why?

They are all my favorite. Each one brings something different to the table. He does a great job of describing the characters and their peculiarisms.

What about Kirby Heyborne’s performance did you like?

He is so great! Love, Love, Love, him!!!!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, it just sucks you in.

Any additional comments?

A thrid book is coming out early next year and now I have to wait. This is the second book of the MIss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. They are wonderful books that use or imagniation and make it seem like we are right there with them. HIghly Recommend this series.

So much better than the first!

Kirby Heyborne brought this book to life and gave it the dignity it deserves! After the dreadful narration of the first book I almost couldn't bear to listen to another go, but hoping it might be the narrator that was the problem and took a chance on the second. The difference was night and day. And, frankly, the book was much better written and, the characters better developed. Anyone that I was around while I listened to it fell into the story immediately and didn't want to stop listening. Just so enjoyable. Can't wait for the next.

Well Written, Not as Engrossing as #1

The first book was fascinating, learning about all the oddities and abilities of the children stuck in a perpetual time loop.

In Hollow City, the kids embark on a mission to locate another to turn Mrs. Peregrine's back to human form. Along the way, they meet new peculiars, whites, hollows, and have difficulty navigating the different time periods and obstacles associated with each. While this book is extremely well written, I wasn't engrossed and would have skipped it. I'm a non-sci-fi fan, but will dabble if I like the characters and/or storyline. This one was too much sci with no further character discovery and development. Better skipped or skim the book. Kirby Heyborne is not my favorite male narrator.

Pretty interesting

This series is pretty interesting. It would be great to be read aloud to children before bed, especially boys. All over good story line, causes the imagination to run.

A continuing story you have to read.

If you read the first book you should continue the journey with this book. I almost wished I had re-read the first book before I started this one so I could place everyone. This is a somewhat dark tale but since it is written about children or child like adults it seems more fun. Will there be a 3rd?

Endings.....

Good story and lovely characters, but this series always ends it's books in the middle of the story. it really seems like it's a large book chopped into 3 books. Leaves you with a .....WTF moment.

More Peculiarities and no escaping from Wights

This is a great sequel to Miss Peregrine's home for peculiar children. I mainly listened to this book, and the narrator did a fantastic job, but I browsed the book, too, not least to see all those peculiar photos which are part of the story.

There were a few surprises, and of course I had to buy the last volume in this trilogy, because this book ends with a mean cliffhanger. Btw, if you buy the audio book only, you can download the photos as PDF file, so you won't miss out on them. That's a great idea, I think.

Perfekt!

Ich schreibe normalerweise ja keine Rezensionen, hier muss ich aber mal was schreiben. Der Sprecher ist ein Künstler erster Güte. Sprache, Ausdruck und Umgang mit Dialekten ist der KNALLER! Die Story ist düster, ideenreich, voller Wendungen und einfach grossartig. Ich würde etwas vermissen, wenn ich dieses Hörbuch nicht gehört hätte.

Spannende und interessante Story, aber..,

Die Story gefällt mir immer noch sehr gut. Sie ist stimmig und hat einige gute Twists. Leider wurde der Sprecher gewechselt, der zwar die verschiedenen 'Dialekte' sehr gut zeigt, aber eine meiner Meinung nach sehr nervige Intonation hat. Wirklich schade, da mir der erste Sprecher sehr gefallen hat.
