*I received a copy of this book for my honest review*
|A mysterious island. An abandoned orphanage. A strange collection of curious photographs.|
A horrific 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 more than just peculiar. They may have been dangerous. They may have been quarantined on a deserted island for good reason. And somehow—impossible though it seems—they may still be alive.
I had been wanting to read this book for a few years but it isn't something I would usually read so I had put this book way down on my books to buy and read list.
The premise of the story was pretty fun and I think it was well thought out. The reader gets excitement, mystery, and terror .
I did think the story was a little slow at first but after a while, it picks up and I just couldn't put it down . I am so glad I finally read it because I absolutely loved it. I was able to imagine all the characters, what they were doing and all that. I just loved the photos. Some were a little creepy but that is fine by me. The photos were a wonderful touch to this book.
As soon as I was finished reading this book I just had to buy the next book in the series and hopefully I will be able to read the second book soon . Also, I do want to watch the movie as soon as it is out on DVD.
I highly recommend .
I give this book 4 out of 5.
