Die Bibliothek der besonderen Kinder // Library of Souls
Die Bibliothek der besonderen Kinder: Roman (Die besonderen Kinder) - Ransom Riggs,Silvia Kinkel

german and english review

 

Ich bin so froh, dass ich mit der Trilogie jetzt durch bin. Für mich persönlich wurden die Bücher immer schlechter. Ich liebe das erste Buch immer noch, beim zweiten Buch hatte ich schon mehr Probleme und jetzt mit dem dritten, muss ich wieder einen weiteren Stern in der Bewertung runtergehen. Ich glaube die Trilogie ist einfach nichts für mich. 

 

Ich versuche die ganze Bewertung so Spoiler-frei wie möglich zu halten, da es der dritte und letzte Band in der Reihe ist. Was ich an den Büchern mag, ist die Spannung und Action, es passiert ja wirklich viel in kürzester Zeit.
Ich mag das immer wieder Möglichkeiten genutzt werden um neue Besondere zu treffen und kennenzulernen.
Ich mag den Zusammenhalt der Gruppe von besonderen Kindern, besonders von Miss Peregrines Gruppe.

Ich mag den Schreibstil unheimlich gerne und die Bilder. Ich denke das die Bilder einfach ein wichtiger Teil dieser Reihe sind.

 

Was ich an diesem Buch nicht mochte (oder auch in den Bänden vorher.)
Die unheimlich langen Kapitel. Ich mag meine Kapitel kurz und knackig, so bald sie zu lange sind, habe ich unheimlich große Probleme durch ein Buch zu kommen. Ich weiß nicht wieso aber es stört mich unheimlich.
Jacob und Emma gehören zusammen und auch getrennt voneinander, nicht unbedingt zu meinen Lieblingscharakteren, deswegen war die erste Hälfte des Buches wirklich unheimlich schwer für mich. Ich habe mich mehr auf Addison konzentriert als auf irgendjemand anderen, weil er in der Zeit wirklich zu meinem Lieblingscharakter geworden ist. So richtig interessant wurde es für mich erst, als endlich wieder alle vereint waren.

Alles in Allem, ich bin froh, dass ich die Trilogie gelesen habe, ich bereuhe es auf keinen Fall, allerdings würde ich sie gerne mehr mögen als ich es letzendlich tue.

I'm just glad that I'm done with this trilogy now. For me personally these books got worse with each book. I truly love the first book, I had quite a few problems with the second one and now with the third one, I had to go down another star in the raiting again. I just think that the trilogy isn't for me.

 

I'm going to try to keep this review as spoiler-free as I can, cause it's the third and final book in this series. What I love about these books are the action, there is so much happening in a short span of time.
I like that every opportunity gets used to meet and get to know new Peculiars. (Is that even a word?)
I also truly love how tight the group of peculiar children is, especially Miss Peregrine's group. Family feels.
I really like the writing style and the pictures. I think that the pictures are such an important part of this series.

 

What I didn't like about the book (or the series in general.)
The freaking long chapters. I like my chapters to be short and sweet, as soon as they get too long I have so many problems getting through a book. I don't know why but it's really frustrating.
Jacob and Emma, together or apart from each other, aren't exactly my favortie people by now. That's why I had the hardest time with the first half of the book. I mainly focused on Addison, cause he really turned into one of my favorite character during that time. I got way more into the book, as soon as they were reunited with the rest.

 

Overall, I'm glad I read this trilogy, I don't regret it at all, but at the end of the day I wish I  would've liked it way more than I actually did.

This is my book for Día de los Muertos

 

This was a very entertaining story.  I´m amazed at this guy´s mind.  I mean, how does he do it?  The story never got dull or too ¨out there¨  for me.  It actually got better as it went.  Actually, even when I thought the story was over and was just going to wind up in the last little bit, it actually threw me back into OMG mode again.  

 

I don´t have a lot of books that I decide to keep in my ¨library¨.  Nearly every book I read gets picked up used and after I read it it gets traded or donated.  The Peculiar Children Trilogy will have a permanent spot on my shelf though.  My husband bought me the first book and after reading that I realized I needed to get the books in hardback.  I love the vintage pictures and I´m sure I´ll read them again and again.  I just have to get the first book in hardback for my set to look legit.

Okay, I´m going to give this a try and I´ll update this post later.  

 

 

 

 

The Reading Tasks: Read a book that has a primarily black and white or gray cover, or one that has all the colors (ROYGBIV) on the cover.

 

For this I am going to read Library of Souls by Ransom Riggs.Library of Souls - Ransom Riggs

"Miss Peregrine's Peculiar Children: Library of Souls" by Ransom Riggs
Library of Souls - Ransom Riggs

 So, I had several complaints about this book, but overall, I thought it was a good ending to the trilogy.

There's some more inconsistency in Library of Souls. We were told in the first book that the Peculiars could only be outside of their loops for a few hours before aging up (remember the apple?), but in this book, they say that they have two or three days to work with...

I got really confused when they started using the word "suul". At first, I thought it was a typo, but they kept using it. I don't think it was ever explained, but I think it's supposed to be the second soul of the Peculiars. But to use a made-up word without warning and explanation was annoying.

I'm also confused about the names of Miss Peregrine and her siblings as they seem to have different surnames. Did I miss something here? They were often referred to as Alma, Bentham and Caul, though, and I wondered if the alphabetization was on purpose. Were they born in that order? It seemed like Caul was the middle child.

I was disappointed by the lack of secondary characters. I care about them more than Jacob and Emma. I realized it was kind of boring with just the two of them around.

And really, why must each chapter be 50 pages long?

But the book gets bonus points for referring to Frankenstein's monster and not saying "Frankenstein" while meaning the unnamed monster.

I thought it was interesting that we had three male characters with names that are typically considered female these days: Addison, Sharon, and Kim.

Most importantly, I enjoyed the ending. The chapter involving Jacob's parents and new therapist successfully pissed me off (in a good way). I like to imagine that the Peculiars stole back the letters. Or that the parents got them back from the therapist.
