Library of Souls
Library of Souls - Ransom Riggs

 

 

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.

"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.

Another awesome look at Peculiars!
Each book in the series picks up more speed than the last, with this book coming to a final conclusion. Ironically, it did leave room open for more, if necessary, but in a whole, the story came together nicely.
How I like to see all the Peculiars make it to where they needed to be and with whom they needed to be with. A happy ending is always nice. I found myself feeling sorry for the creatures that were considered an enemy in this series, after finding out the full history on them. Didn't see that coming, that's for sure!
If you haven't read this series, you should. I saw one person commented that this series is too creepy for her, but that's the thing, there is not much creepy about the story at all. It's like a science-fiction, fantasy, if you ask me, and I think some of you who are turned off would be so on if you gave it a try.


4.5/5
