A novel so marvelously strange and perfectly peculiar. This is one of the most unique YA novels I think I've ever read. The incorporation of real photographs made the fantastical story feel real, and all the characters were wonderfully constructed and believable in their strangeness.

The physical book has a lovely presentation with thick, white paper and ornate design. It's definitely a paperback that looks more like a hardback, and one I'll display proudly on my bookshelf.

I enjoyed how Ransom Riggs left the first book open for more adventure in a sequel, yet all the questions from the beginning were successfully answered. He didn't put the need for a sequel over the quality of the ending. The writing is evocative and beautiful, and I look forward to more of it in Hollow City.
