Alternate Cover edition for ISBN 9781594744761A mysterious island An abandoned orphanage A strange collection of very curious photographs It all waits to be discovered in Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children an unforgettable novel that mixes fiction and photography in a thrilling reading experience As our story opens a When I was a child one of my favourite things to do was to look through pictures in books children's picture books colouring books etc and tell stories in my mind with them For example a picture of two children holding hands would start this story of friendship which would then grow with every picture introducing grander stories and dragons unicorns whatever the pictures gave meMiss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children reminds me of thatThis story for me feels completely disjointed and messy It is evidently framed around this marvelous collection of creepy vintage photographs but the story is not smoothly incorporated It reads like you can imagine the author viewing each image and trying to find a way to fit it into the plot of the book Here's a weird image of a girl smoking a pipe and peeling potatoes how can I make that part of the story? Here's a creepy picture of some twins in clown outfits how do I add that to the book?And if you're thinking of reading this as a creepy book for Halloween it is not scary at all The narrative never delivers an atmosphere deserving of the photography It's all a bit bland and never becomes anything than a standard paranormal tale about teenschildren with special powersAdditionally the narrator Jacob is simply not a character I like to read about I hate it when rich privileged narrators constantly wallow in their own self pity for no good reason Here he says If I never went home what exactly would I be missing? I pictured my cold cavernous house my friendless town full of bad memories the utterly unremarkable life that had been mapped out for me What??? He is from a ridiculously wealthy family and has two loving parents and lives in a huge house He did have a part time job but he took it for granted and spent his time showing up late and deliberately shelving things wrong because he wanted to be fired He also did have a best friend but his friend not surprisingly walked out after this exchange “What are you my mom?”“Do I look like I blow truckers for food stamps?” I did not like him at all Some unlikable characters are unlikable in a complex and interesting way but Jacob is just a spoiled entitled and selfish brat Add that to the simplistic yet messy storytelling and this book was completely disappointing I'm also tempted to say it reads like a middle grade book but that would be an insult to some of the fantastic middle grade books I've read recently It just reads like a not very good bookBlog | Facebook | Twitter | Instagram | Youtube | Store

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar ChildrenHorrific family tragedy sets sixteen year old Jacob journeying to a remote island off the coast of Wales where he discovers the crumbling ruins of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children As Jacob explores its abandoned bedrooms and hallways it becomes clear that the children were than just peculiar They may have been dan Edit on January 9th 2016 I haven't thought about this book since I read it in July and I really have no interest any in reading the rest of the series It definitely was a slow moving book but the plot really held my attention and I loved the use of the pictures Sometimes I felt like he tried a little too hard to make the pictures perfectly fit into the story which made it a little awkward to read but they still made the reading experience interesting The book really read like a movie and I can't wait to see how Tim Burton's interpretation is going to turn out
