What the Critics Say

"[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)

    "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.

    Story
    "You Just Can't Leave It Like That!?"
    Would you listen to Hollow City again? Why?

    Yes, just because. It's Ransom Riggs... need I say more?


    What other book might you compare Hollow City to, and why?

    It's in a class of it's own. Read the first book first though.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    When the children were in the boats at the beginning and one is secured to a pole and acting as a lookout for shore.


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

    Yes and I did.
