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.
My Review :
Let me describe this book as easily as I can.
Creepy: The pictures are creepy. The whole setup is weird and it gives an uncanny feeling.
Take this for example.
Descriptive: The descriptions are very fine but most of the time, you don’t want it there. You just want to move on to the story.
Plot: About this I’m very confused. Through the most part of the book I felt like “This is going nowhere. Maybe I should just stop.”
And then towards the end, the story picks up the pace and we are left hanging for the second book.
Characters: Absolutely amazing and Peculiar(See what I did there)
I hate giving this 3 stars. But it just felt like it. Seems like I can’t love it like everyone else.
