You have to write the book that wants to be written. And if the book will be too difficult for grown-ups, then you write it for children.

“Zane’s good hand flashed out and smacked Ty upside the back of the head.

“Ow! What the hell?” Ty cried as he rubbed his head and huffed.

“You’re lucky I repress the Instakill for you,” he muttered.”

review SPOILER ALERT! 2017-07-18 20:44
[Book Review] Asylum by Madeleine Roux

Rating: ★★★

 

This review contains spoilers. 

 

You can read this review on my blog.

I went into this think this would be what I was originally expecting from Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, a spooky ghost story with some creepy pictures. I didn't get that. 

I really wanted to like this. Creepy and haunted mental hospitals? I love that kinda thing. But for the most of book, the writing was off. I don't really know how to phrase this, but it the writing looked like a middle-grade student wrote it. And because of that, it took me forever to finish the book. I guess another aspect of the bad writing was the romance. In my opinion it didn't really need it, but the romance that it did have had no depth to it at all. 

Like I said above, I was expecting some creepy photos, but these photos just didn't seem that real or creepy. They all looked like stock photos but with a black and white filter. And it turns out that they actually are stock photos. 

This book was written in 2013. I assume the story takes place right around then too, since everyone has cell phones and stuff. If so there should be cameras in the dorm right? I mean except for the bathrooms and the rooms themselves. Then why didn't the police check the cameras? They could've probably solved the whole mystery by just looking at the cameras! Unless there was some weird ghostly interference? But neither of those were mentioned anywhere in the book. I just that was a kinda big plot hole there. 

I'll probably continue reading the series just because I wanna see how the rest of the mystery unfolds. Also I really wanna see how this was stretched over 3 books and 3 novellas.
