    The peculiars are trying to save Peculiardom. With their headmistress being stuck in the form of a bird, they have little guidance against the terrible creatures killing peculiars off. But they are doing their best to find someone who can help them bring Miss Peregrine back. Just like the first volume of the graphic novel adaptation of the Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children series, it is wonderfully-illustrated. Cassandra Jean makes the characters look so alive, as though they are The peculiars are trying to save Peculiardom.

Just like the first volume of the graphic novel adaptation of the Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children series, it is wonderfully-illustrated. Cassandra Jean makes the characters look so alive, as though they are breathing within the pages. Although, one could argue that they have an “unfinished” quality, but that was the main complaint about the impressionism painting style and we all love a little Monet and Manet. The story picks up from the last page of the first volume. There is no time jump, which I appreciate, having been time-jumped enough the last few weeks with the Saga comic series. Because Jacob and the peculiar children are journeying into the unknown to save their beloved headmistress, they face many dangers and encounter a dozen new characters along the way. I loved that. It is true that most of the characters encountered come and go, but meeting them, being introduced to them, was a real pleasure. Strangely—or shall I say “peculiarly”?—I feel like watching the American Horror Story TV series right now. Now that I compare the first and second volume I realize that the peculiars did not get to use their magical abilities enough in the first one. To me it’s like being a spy and receiving plenty of gadgets before starting the mission, but then only using a main one throughout, discarding the other “not so impressive” ones. But in this sequel, each peculiar puts their special ability to great use. Blog | Youtube | Twitter | Instagram | Google+ | Bloglovin’

    Yay 5 stars! I haven't read the original book for a year or so and so this was a fantastic refresher. Hollow City is the sequel to Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. In this book, Jacob continues on his journey. I can't say much about the sequel because of spoilers, but in this book Jacob and the gang get to meet more peculiars. They get to learn the truth and history of the Peculiar Tales and whether or not a peculiar soul can be extracted. We also learn a little of the back story to Yay 5 stars!

The kids also get to explore other loops and time periods. This book gets a little bit more political and there is a war going on between the Hollows and the Peculiars. I own Library of Souls the third and final book in this trilogy, but haven't read it just yet. Reading the graphic novel was a great way to get back into the story. It gets me excited to see what happens next in the children's dangerous adventure.

    What a WONDERFUL second volume! I thoroughly enjoyed reading Hollow City which has just the right amount of creepiness and evilness without it being too terrifying to read *hides under blanket* Hollow City focuses on the peculiar children trying to turn Miss Peregrine back into her human self-again. They travel to London in the hope of finding another ymbryne (Miss Wren) who might know a way to transform their beloved headmistress back to her normal self. Along the way, the children encounter What a WONDERFUL second volume!

Along the way, the children encounter the sinister wights (there is one scenario involving a showdown between the children and wights which is brilliant), the grotesque-looking hollowghast and a few peculiars from a carnival. The illustrations continue to amaze me (they're a bit manga-ish) and some of the characters are beautiful to look at. I mean Hugh - wow! And I love Horace...but Enoch is just something else. Anywaay, the story is full of action, high-speed chases and a nice twist involving a certain animal will leave you stunned (if you haven't already read the novel versions of this story). Enoch provides quite a few of the laughs (he's such a grumpy cynic but he's great) and this second volume provides much more exposition which helps the readers get to know the peculiar children better. Ooooh, and there's a talking, smoking, sunglasses-wearing dog called Addison who's pretty darn cool. So, if you like novel storytelling with a unique spin, brilliant characters, fantastic illustrations and a story with real heart then Hollow City is definitely for you!

    I accidentally bought the second book first oops. Nevertheless, it’s been awhile since I’ve enjoyed the world of Peculiar’s so this was a wonderful, easy refresher. I also absolutely adore Cassandra Jean’s art style, it’s so beautiful!

    I absolutely love this book series! I read all the novels first then I read the graphic novels. While this book got the main ideas of the non regular novel it did miss a lot of small stuff that I considered important. One example is that this version of Hollow City did not go into the depths of Hugh and Fiona's relationship which I was extremely disappointed in. I did however love how Jean got the part when Hugh rescued all the peculiars from the wights, the art was not only breathtaking but it I absolutely love this book series!

    I loved it! it was a super quick to read and loved all the illustrations. I actully bought it for my husband who didn't want to read the whole book. I figured this was a good alternative because it took all the key parts of the book and simplified them. I read the book but still very much enjoyed this. waiting for my husbands opinion once he stops making excuses about why he doesn't want to read it lol.

    I really love Cassandra Jean’s artwork. The story adaptation itself was confusing in places to someone who hasn’t read the second novel yet, but it’s not too bad that I couldn’t follow along. There are even more characters introduced to the already many from book one which are difficult to keep track of (which would be the same for novel or comic). What a cliff hanger! I’ve got to get my hands on the third graphic novel ASAP. (Haha, and read the 2nd and 3rd books...) But really the draw for me I really love Cassandra Jean’s artwork.

But really the draw for me with these graphic novels is the artwork because I know there is a lot of filling in needed for the story of the comic adaptation that the original novels can provide (though I assume they hit on the major points). WAIT: there isn’t a graphic novel adaptation of the 3rd book yet!

    3.5/5 stars The illustrations in this graphic novel are just as amazing as in the first one. However, I just didn't love the story in Hollow City the graphic novel that much. If you loved Hollow City (the book) then you will love this graphic novel.

    The second book in the Miss Peregrine graphic novels was only released in July this year due to the reappearing popularity of the book series and the movie but the illustrations was done by the same artist of the 2013 graphic novel.

I know there was still a lot of work put behind this book but when I look at the drawings in comparison to the first graphic novel it just seems so lacking and dull. There is less details to the faces and background so it feels rushed. The story line doesn't suffer at all because there was very little left out since Hollow City was more of a drawn out filler to the series. I'll definitely be reading the third graphic novel if they do bring one out but all I wish for is that it has more colour to it because I know the lack of detail is part of the unique style.

    Despite its violence, which I generally eschew, I found this book to be a hopeful quest in the triumph of Good over Evil. Events haven't been going well for this group of peculiar adventurers, yet they manage to survive and continue on their noble quest. When they believe they've reached the end, their expectations are turned upside down and they find that yet another quest awaits them.

Mr. Heyborne is a tremendously gifted storyteller whose work I have found so compelling that I will be reviewing his repertoire for other titles of interest. His performance was so gripping that on a day I was feeling unwell, I listened to 6 hours of it. I can't wait to start listening to the next one in the series! HIGHLY recommend to readers who enjoy a bit of magic mixed into their fantasy fiction.

    I read this graphic novel as a quick way to refresh myself of the plot of Hollow City before moving on to Library of Souls. This read is much faster than the novel, and thus I never found it to drag. The end is spectacular like always and I feel much more ready to finish this series at last. Recommend.

    Just like my review for the first book, I would definitely recommend that a person read the actual book before the graphic novel because (obviously) quite a bit is left out. Also, just like the first graphic novel, the style in this one is very simple. Still a very fun read! I cannot wait to get my hands on the third graphic novel when it is published!

    Hollow city is a great story that takes place in London 1940. Our main character is Jacob. He is a peculiar person that has the power to see their enemies called the hollows which are monsters that used to be human.

The peculiars which are emma , millard, enoch , fiona , hugh , Claire , Horace , Olive , and Bronwyn go with Jacob. Miss Peregrine only has 2 days left before she is a bird forever , so the peculiars go to Hollow City to change her back. The peculiars find themselves in a train station then when they get in the train the wight capture them in a hut in the middle of nowhere. The peculiars find themselves with two girls and their father in a house when a Hollowgast tries to kill them but fails. The peculiars follow a bird to find Miss Wren. Then a latch opens and they find themselves in a circus. They are at a circus when they had a picture that shows where Miss Wren is. While Miss Wren is trying to turn Miss Peregrine into human they figure out that the bird is a wight. Althera(A peculiar that helped Miss Wren stay safe) dies trying to kill the wight. The Peculiars are captured, but Emma and Jacob fight back. They fall unconscious and then a dog goes and rescues them. Jacob almost dies but then he found out he had a new power which you have to read the whole book to know what the power is the end. In my opinion I believe ¨Miss peregrine's home for peculiar children¨ is great. First of all, the book is not long or short. For example, the book has chapters, so it's not very long. Second of all, this book get you to read all of the book. For instance, once while I was reading the book it got boring and then they made it fun by putting in the hollows. Last of all, this book gets colorful and dull when it needs to. :For instance, when it goes back in time it gets colorful and when it is in the 21st century it turns dull. In my opinion I believe that ¨ Miss peregrine's home for peculiar children. I would recommend this book to people because this book is great by making the book scary, fun, and colorful. Also the book is action packed and that is why I will recommend this book to many people.

    Art: Still good, still flowey, still has the occasional little blip that doesn't match but whatever. It feels like there's slightly less color in this one. That might be because the color is used to highlight emotional moments or juxtapose between the amazing and the safe and the calm versus the the boring, the dangerous, and the villains. Or maybe it's just emphasis for emphasis sake, I haven't figured out yet. Plot: It follows the same plot as the second book from the Peculiar Children trilogy.

Or maybe it's just emphasis for emphasis sake, I haven't figured out yet. Plot: It follows the same plot as the second book from the Peculiar Children trilogy. It's another 272 pages [same as the previous graphic novelization] compared to the novels 428 pages. Either the 272 pages is just a strange coincidence or that's sort of close to the max page amount that's being allowed the artist, which explains a lot about why most graphic novelizations of books might feel like quick summaries. If publishing companies are putting a cap on page numbers then they're forcing the artists to storyboard the comic in such a way as to hit all the big plot points. But by cutting out the slow plot building portions of the books they take out a good amount of the meat of the story which makes it feel very rushed. More rushed if there's less pages [such as those 100+ page long graphic novelizations, those feel super rushed] and vice versa. Dear publishers who want to create graphic novels of books, you gotta let that shit flow nicer. Stop giving me summaries, I want a visual novel goddammit. The one thing I forgot to mention about the first one is the pages aren't regular paper, they're the nicer quality matte comic pages. They handle spills and water damage much better than other pages would [and for that I am thankful]. The story was very entertaining, although the rushing of the plot makes it a little harder for me to immerse myself fully.

That is why I think people should read it. I would recommend this book to adults because the book has some bad words in them but the adults could forget them.I would not recommend this book to kids because it is inappropriate and they would think about it growing up.

    This was a good book, don't let the 3 stars put you off. It's just that, compared with the first one, it didn't keep me as enthralled. The illustrations didn't seem as well thought out as the first book. I could see it was more... what's the word... deliberate? It felt like the illustrator really had a focus and knew their plan. In this one it felt like it was done just because it HAD to be done as it's the sequel.

I can see more plainly now as to why maybe there isn't a third in this graphic novel series and that I will resort to reading the original book. This is a crying shame as, if the enthusiasm was as good as the first, this would've been a fantastic graphic novel series, probably bordering on my favourite. (And I read a lot of graphic novels, not all recorded on Good Reads unfortunately but I'm working on it!) I guess it maybe more to do with the storyline not being as shocking? You already have the introduction to the monsters and their horridness so I became a little more desensitised to them perhaps? I don't know, but as much as I did enjoy this book, in comparison to the first one I just didn't enjoy it as much. The pictures lacked a little bit of luster and the colouration didn't have the same flow as the first book (I'm referring to the normal world being black and white and in the loop being colour) All in all it was just... ok... it's a real shame that the series isn't carrying on as a graphic novel as it has true potential but I'm sure everyone has their reasons.

The ending has me itching to get my hands on Library of Souls.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. 4/5 I’m really loving these graphic novels’ adaption for Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. They are exactly how I visually imagined the book to be and are really well done. My biggest complaint is that I wanted to see more of the peculiar animals, that was my favourite part to read about in Hollow City. I wanted some more drawings of Deirdre and just more of that, but I get that it doesn’t really cater too much to the plot to go into the detail I wanted and to cram it all into a 4/5 I’m really loving these graphic novels’ adaption for Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children.

I’m also conflicted on Emma’s Fire being represented by blue. Like it annoys a part of me, but the other part of me loves the artistic representation. In my review for the first graphic novel I critiques some of the drawings and I think they are a lot of better and seem more finished in this novel. I LOVE the representation for the gut feeling Jacob gets when he sees the hollows, this was so cool to see and follow along with and just supplemented the story so so well. Unfortunately the whole process of Jacob learning to control the hollows was more confusing and more rushed than in the original book and a lot of the ending felt rushed. I hope they create a graphic novel for The Library of Souls. I’m really looking forward to seeing the Devil’s Acre adaptation, the initial meeting scene with Sharron, and, of course, the library of souls. Overall I love love love these adaptations and seeing all the visuals is an enjoyable experience.
