Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
3 stars means “I liked it.” I didn’t love it, I didn’t hate it…it was okay. The use of the found pictures seemed kind of forced at times, and not as integrated as they could have been. I think I’d really have preferred the pictures just being described rather than reproduced. Also, some of them just seemed unnecessary–such as sad Dad in his bunny suit, or Grandpa with his gun. Why would someone be taking that picture, from that distance?
But those are just my quibbles. If you’re a fan of this kind of thing, then you’ll really dig this book. And I did enjoy some of the characters and situations. Just overall, it wasn’t a book I’m going to love–but I did like it.
