Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children - Ransom Riggs

It's more like 3.75 stars actually. 
The beginning was fantastic and the end even better but in the middle of the story the main character Jacob spent some time 

in a time loop

(spoiler show)

, so the story was dragging quite a bit.

“Stars, too, were time travelers. How many of those ancient points of light were the last echoes of suns now dead? How many had been born but their light not yet come this far? If all the suns but ours collapsed tonight, how many lifetimes would it take us to realize we were alone? I had always known the sky was full of mysteries—but not until now had I realized how full of them the earth was.”

Review: Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children - Ransom Riggs

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs is the first book in the Miss Peregrine's Peculiar Children series. Sixteen-year-old Jacob has questions after a family tragedy, which leads him to a remote island and to a ruined orphanage, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. 

Plot 5/5: This is a most unusual and intriguing plot.

Characters 5/5: There were so many emotions that had me laughing, crying, and fearful for the characters throughout the story.

World building 5/5: Incredible world building between the present and the past.

Pacing 5/5: The pacing was steady, and kept me enthralled throughout the story.

Writing 5/5: The writing is beautiful, and with the addition of the vintage photographs, it made the story even more believable. 

Overall 5/5

I thoroughly enjoyed this story and I'm eagerly anticipating what happens next to the peculiar children!

Borrowed from my local library.

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children - Ransom Riggs

 

Fairies, changelings, witches, circus/carnival 'oddities'.

Just children with odd paranormal abilities abandoned by their parents and now in hiding.

 

I'm not sure if I like Miss. Peregrine or not.  

Not letting the children change at all seems a bit odd.  

Locking everyone locatable from the same year into a loop, which has apparently been going on since the dawn of time - maybe I'm missing something.

 

I am looking forward to book 2 though.  AFTER the bingo game.

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 logic (or at least logic that I don't quite follow about how some of the weird stuff in this world works).

 

An enjoyable read, at least by audio. I'm planning on checking out the next in the series. I predicted some of what happened but that just gave me a sense of accomplishment rather than disappointment.
