Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
A MYSTERIOUS ISLAND.
AN ABANDONED ORPHANAGE.
A STRANGE COLLECTION OF VERY PECULIAR PHOTOGRAPHS.
When I first found this at a bookstore, I thought it would be a very interesting read. But I was only looking at books that day, and never bought anything. I kept thinking of this book, because it really caught my eye. Then my father bought this for me about 2 weeks later and I was so excited!
Opening MPHFPC for the first time, I put down the book immediately. Not that it was horrible, but because I was creeped out by the picture of Emma on the title page. Before reading the story itself, I skimmed through the pictures first and was undecided whether the story would be scary or not. I found some of the images definitely weird and I even thought that I would have nightmares. But taking in the story with the pictures, it gave a different...vibe. I found some parts in the story realistic even though I knew all of it was only a figment of Mr. Riggs' imagination.
I usually finish books in 1-3 days, but I finished MPHFPC in a minimum of 7 days. For me, it's not a book that you would not put down. It was interesting, but in my opinion not interesting enough.
If I would rate it, it would have a score of 3.5/5.
