Quali mostri popolano gli incubi di Abraham, il nonno di Jacob, unico sopravvissuto allo sterminio della sua famiglia di ebrei polacchi? Sono la trasfigurazione della ferocia nazista o piuttosto qualcos’altro, qualcosa di vivo, presente e ancora mortalmente pericoloso? Quando una tragedia impossibile lo colpisce, Jacob sa che non può più rimandare: deve scoprire cos’è successo a suo nonno e, soprattutto, cosa ha visto, o crede di aver visto, con i suoi stessi occhi. Non gli resta che attraversare l’oceano e trovare l’inaccessibile orfanotrofio inglese che durante la guerra ospitò Abraham e altri piccoli orfani ebrei. Ma per raggiungere quel luogo avvolto nella leggenda non ha molti indizi, a parte i vecchi racconti del nonno e una sparuta collezione di bizzarri fotomontaggi d’epoca.

4.0 Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs

4.0 Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs (audiobook)
Series: Miss Peregrine #1 I was pleasantly surprised by this book. What little I knew of it sounded weird, so I didn't know exactly what I was getting into or how the main character's story would tie into that of his grandfather's. I'm just trying not to look at some of the questionable internal l...
