“I don't mean to be rude' I said, 'but what are you people?'
'We're peculiar,' he replied, sounding a bit puzzled. 'Aren't you?;
'I don't know. I don't think so'
'That's a shame.”
― Ransom Riggs, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children

I try to express only my most honest opinion in a spoiler free way. If you feel anything in my review is a spoiler and is not already hidden in spoiler brackets please let me know. Thank you.

The story was good and I enjoyed it. I'll admit I was expecting a bit more from it than I actually got, but still pretty pleased with it. It was pretty entertaining with its supernatural like characters and the interesting setting.

I like the twist on the time loop. Every movie/tv show/story that I've seen or read has the characters trying to get out of their time loops. This is the first one that not only did it on purpose but happy with it.

The characters were great. I found most of them likeable and all of them to have a distinct personality. There not general, made of clay kind of characters, and I love the old-fashioned way that they all talk.

I did find it very slow to start though. Dragged on forever and I started to wonder if it was ever going to truely start. I know that this book need to introduce the main characters and set the world and background for the whole series, but this took almost half the book.

The pictures were interesting. I read one series before this that did something similar, but I think that series had actually been inspired by this one. Also the photos in this book fit with the story really well.

Apparently, most of the children were suppose to be around the age of 16, but they felt so much younger to me when reading this. I don't know if that is just because of the older way of things, or the writing itself.

All in all it was good. I want to watch the movie now, just to see how it compares, and I will continue with the series.

How I choose my rating:
1* Hated it. Had to force myself to finish it.
2** Didn't really like it. Didn't hate it but not sure why I finished it other then for some closure.
3*** I liked it. I had some issues with it, but as a whole it was good. I probably won't reread again ever, but there is a chance I might finish the series. (If part of one) But if not it's not a huge loss.
4**** I really liked this book. Maybe not a work of genius, but highly entertaining. I might reread this again, and I will finish the series. (If part of one) I would recommend to those I know hold interest in this books content.
5***** I loved this book. I found little to no issues with it at all. I will definitely be rereading this and probably more than once. I will finish the series and reread it multiple times. (If part of one) I will recommend this book to EVERYONE!!!!

Jacob Portman cresceu ouvindo as histórias fantásticas que o avô, Abe, contava. Na época da Segunda Guerra Mundial, o avô havia morado numa ilha remota, num casarão que funcionava como abrigo para crianças. Lá, Abe convivera com uma menina que levitava, uma garota que produzia fogo com as mãos, um menino invisível… Entretanto, todas essas histórias foram perdendo o encanto à medida que Jacob crescia. Até que, aos dezesseis anos, tudo volta à tona para se provar real.

Abalado com a morte misteriosa do avô, Jacob decide ir à tal ilha para tentar entender as últimas palavras de Abe: “Encontre a ave. Na fenda. Do outro lado do túmulo do velho.” Ele encontra o casarão em ruínas, mas, ao passar por um túnel subterrâneo, o menino se vê em outra época, décadas atrás: em 3 setembro de 1940. Nesse lugar protegido no tempo, ele conhece crianças com habilidades peculiares e encontra as respostas para todas as suas perguntas. Mas o fascínio inicial logo se transforma em uma luta para sobreviver e salvar a vida de seus novos amigos.

Viagens no tempo, mulheres que se transformam em aves, crianças com dons inusitados e monstros à espreita. Bem-vindo ao lar da srta. Peregrine para crianças peculiares, um fascinante mundo novo pronto para ser descoberto.

I wanted to give this book 4 stars, but couldn't: really 3.5 stars. Imaginative story about a young boy who worships his grandfather, in part because of the fanciful stories he tells about the unusual kids he went to school with after he escaped the Nazis. Then the grandfather is murdered by a beast, and young Jacob is haunted by his death and his dying words. He convinces his parents to let him go to the island, where his grandfather attended school and slips through a portal to find that the children exist in a Loop, never aging and living the same day over and over until evil attacks. Events force Jacob to choose between his new friends and his family. The aged photographs are an interesting aspect of this novel. ( )

middlegrade/teen fiction. A story built around collections of odd photographs, this was a disappointment. Narration was solid but a bit dull by today's standards, felt sort of like reading an old-style writer like Poe--creepiness building on top of spookiness for pages and pages (though I haven't read Poe in ages so it is possible I am under-/over-estimating). Took forever (p.144!!) for the protagonist to get any answers from Miss Peregrine regarding his grandpa's childhood at the orphanage (or rather, the continued existence of the orphanage itself), and would've taken too long again to find out about the strange circumstances of Gramps' death (attacked by a monster). I skimmed ahead as far as p.179, but ultimately lost interest. ( )

3,5 stars. It was well-written, just not my cup of tea. The book took a while to grow on me, but after a while it did. I liked the plot twist. I did this book as an audiobook and I definitely liked the voice of the narrator, Jesse Bernstein. Maybe I will pick up the next books in the series eventually, but not now.

Edit: grammar. ( )

Boken är knappast ett stilistiskt mästerverk. Dialogerna krystas stundom fram och vissa figurer är lika blodfattiga som de spöken som förföljer dem. Det som gör verket unikt är bilderna
adicionada por Jannes | editarSvenska Dagbladet, Joanna Persman (Jan 5, 2013)
The author’s ability to use the photos to play with the reader’s imagination, while still holding the tension of the plot, is extraordinary. This kind of device can feel like a self-conscious reminder of the authorial hand, but this is not the case in Miss Peregrine’s Home.
adicionada por sduff222 | editarThe Globe and Mail, Claire Cameron (Aug 19, 2011)
In Miss Peregrine’s, a teenager decides to investigate the stories his grandfather told him about an island off the coast of Wales. He finds more than he bargained for, of course, and there are adventures, involving a group of kids with remarkable abilities which are almost, but not quite, entirely similar to mutants from X-Men comics. For a story constructed to make use of a collection of vintage snapshots, it’s impressively cohesive, and there’s certainly nothing wrong with yet another recounting of the hero’s journey from callow youth to manhood. But the book never lives up to its own aesthetic, and the story refuses to get past surface level on the occasional odd idea or intriguing concept. Whatever its faults, Miss Peregrine’s only true sin is that, presentation aside, it isn’t really that peculiar.

Those Creepy Pictures Explained

The idea for Miss Peregrine's Home popped into Ransom Riggs' head when he ran across some sinister-looking vintage photos, which ''suggest stories even though you don't know who the people are or exactly when they were taken.'' As he began writing, he kept searching for images, even combing swap meets and flea markets. ''I was developing the story as I was finding the photos. I'd find a particularly evocative photo and I'd say, 'I need to work this in somehow.' '' Most are reproduced in the novel ''as is,'' but a few have been digitally altered. Riggs says he ended up with more photos than he could use: ''I have a nice big fat backlog for the second book.'' — Keith Staskiewicz

adicionada por kthomp25 | editarEntertainment Weekly, Keith Staskiewicz (Jun 24, 2011)
With its X-Men: First Class-meets-time-travel story line, David Lynchian imagery, and rich, eerie detail, it's no wonder Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children has been snapped up by Twentieth Century Fox. This is a novel with ''movie adaptation'' written into its powerful DNA. B+
