I'm not sure why I held off reading this book for so long, because it's exactly the kind of young fantasy (in the same vein as Harry Potter) that I very much enjoy reading. Riggs' writing is slightly less enchanting that other authors writing in his same ouevre, but I'm going to let him get away with his sometimes slightly juvenile prose for the sake of his highly intriguing narrative. He draws us into the story of the Peculiar Children and their headmistress, Miss Peregrine, through the eyes of Jacob, a 16-year old boy with no idea who he is and no idea that the stories of the Children as told to him by his grandfather are entirely true. The majority of this first novel in the series is spent with Jacob trying to unravel his grandfather's cryptic last words, Riggs' entry into the grander story arc of the coming battle between the Children and the hollowgast sets the readers up nicely for the next books in the series.

I was first intriqued by the cover and the fact that my daughter brought the book to my attention. Every book she advises me on - she is always right - I love it, however, she did not care for this book. I loved it. Part fantasy - the vintage pictures just enhance the story - I couldn't put it down. I am reading the second book now and just ordered book 3. Easy summer reading! ( )

I just couldn't put this down. Like at all... Some things I did feel were a bit rushed, like the romance and I wish we would've gotten to know everyone a bit better. I think the problem is that there are so many characters, but there's all this plot too, so the characters are introduced in a bit of a rush. But I did really like the book and definitely will read more. And can watch the movie on my way to US on Sunday...

This reminded me of a book I read a long time ago. But can't remember the name... Need to search my archives, I think. ( )

enjoyed reading with my son! ( )

My kid's abandonment of this book was actually dead-on. While I enjoyed it, there was way more sexual referencing than we consider appropriate for our newly-minted teen. So I am as glad I read it as I am she didn't. ( )

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

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.

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

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+
