“I slammed out of the house and started walking, heading nowhere in particular. Sometimes you just need to go through a door.”
Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children is the first book in the series.
I had heard a lot of positive reviews about this book, so I decided to give it a try.
The book is about a sixteen-year-old Jacob who admires his grandfather a lot. But a few chapters into the book, his grandfather dies. He utters certain mysterious words before dying which lead Jacob to an island. On the island, he finds Miss Peregrine who lives with orphaned children who have peculiar qualities. He befriends them and fights with monsters to protect them. Later, he has to make an important decision about if he should live with Miss Peregrine and the peculiar children and leave his parents.
But, I’m actually saddened when I say that I didn’t like this book as I thought I would have. Maybe, I dove in with a lot of expectations. But, I appreciate the ambiance that the book created. Not to lie, I loved the plot, the concept, it was definitely unique.
Another thing that I did like was the photographs in the book, they were simply AMAZING. Also, the main reason why I picked this book is because it felt so good in my hands.
There were certain parts that I thoroughly enjoyed, I loved the way of writing in this book. There were A LOTT of new (sometimes complicated) words that I got to learn. So, I guess, I would say I didn’t completely dislike this book but I don’t think I’ll be picking up the second book of the series!
