Baker Street Irregulars
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.

And we have the finale. It was alright, I guess, although the world still doesn't really make sense to me. There seem so few ymbryns (sp?) and they all seem so concentrated in England that it just feels off. The books also try so hard to be child-centric or at least teenager-centric so that there are all these really old "children" and it just doesn't really make sense unless you buy into the whole "ymbryns are controlling everyone" thing. Why infantilize them unless you really just want to control them?

 

And that romance is still weird.

"His pupils were terribly bloodshot, as if he hadn't slept in days, but otherwise unsuspicious."

 

Methinks that someone doesn't know which part of the eye the pupil is....

Hollow City by Ransom Riggs (audiobook)
Hollow City (Miss Peregrine, #2) - Ransom Riggs

Series: Miss Peregrine #2

 

Meh?

 

It suffers from second book syndrome (a not very convincing attempt to mislead the reader into thinking the cliffhanger ending is unexpected) and from general YA-ness (but I love you!).

 

I've already started listening to the next book because my other options were not immediately available.

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.
