A 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 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 absolutely adore this book. The pictures were what really set it off. They made the fantastical elements seem possible and realistic. The story was believable and it's descriptions painted the perfect picture in my mind. I could see everything just as he was writing it. I couldn't put it down! I finished it in only a day but really wished it would last longer. The end is full of adventure and surprises. I really hope there's a movie for this one and a second book. I would just die without it. I have reccommeneded this book to others and they share my love for the art and story. I do not think you should ebook this one, my only wish with it was that I had read the hardcover.
P.S. I really enjoy this author, because through the whole process via his blog I can see he stayed true to himself. Kudos to you Ransom.
