I loved the concept, the characters, and the story... but I didn't feel the ending was appropriate with the rest of the book. ( )

This was a very interesting book, I never knew what was going to happen next and I certainly did not predict the ending. With all the pictures I really felt like I was being told the story from a friend rather than reading it from a book. I look forward to seeing more books like this, especially from this author. ( )

I loved this novel. I think the photographs added so much to the story, and it rather reminds me of going through my grandparents' pictures and them breaking off into some story or other. I had heard other people who thought the book was creepy, but I never had that feeling (though I suspect it takes a lot to weird me out. most "scary" movies tend to be more boring or stupid in my book). The subject matter (period before The Blitz, persecution) could get to be a little intense for some readers, given that it is marketed as a young adult novel, but I thought it balanced out with the lighter moments of the book. Now I got this as a library e-book, and the pictures were about the size of the photographs of the time on my Nook Color, but I heard some people express that they had difficulty seeing them on their readers, so if you don't have a tablet or larger size reader, you might consider checking out a physical copy if you are borrowing it from the library.

I liked this up until the ending - and not because the ending isn't really an ending as much as a setup for a sequel - or at least that's the impression I got. It was all the action just before the end - the obstacles, I mean. I know that conflict drives plot and all that, but it just got to be a little too much for my taste near the end. As soon as the kids would tackle one obstacle, another would immediately rear its ugly head - and too many times in quick succession. It was like listening to a child who has been told to go to bed come up with never-ending excuse after excuse about why he needs to be up..."Read me a story...I forgot to brush my teeth...I need a drink...I have to go to the bathroom...I need to get a night light...I need to ask you something...I'm hungry..." It started to get on my nerves. The rest of the book was interesting and I enjoyed reading it. The last bit of it irritated me, though. Enough to take off two stars. ( )

If you have seen the movie, please do not let it dissuade you from reading the books! The movies is really nothing in comparison, even though it is by Tim Burton. Very sad!

Just as in our world, the world written of by Ransom Riggs, has Peculiar Children. Children with Herculean strength, children who can conjure balls of fire between their hand, children who defy gravity. In our world, these children are tricksters, pranksters- children you would see at a side-show at the circus. But not in the world Ransom Riggs has imagined and ultimately shared with us. Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children tells us the fantastical story of a group of these children, under the tutelage of Miss Peregrine. They live in a time loop that goes between modern day and September 3, 1940, just prior to when their peaceful home was bombed in a Nazi air raid. Or did it? That is where the time loop comes in. By being Peculiar, they were saved, but by being Peculiar, they were also trapped into a loop. Not a bad or too horrible of a loop, but a loop none-the-less.

I'm actually afraid of giving away too many spoilers in writing this, but I don't want you to think this is merely a story about a bunch of Peculiar children living a strange life, moving from present day to 1940 and back again. You see, they also live in peril of evil creatures trying to learn the secrets of creating loops so they (the evil creatures) can attain immortality. This puts the Peculiar community in danger, as Peculiar children have been killed and devoured, and the leaders of these children (known as a ymbryne, a very special individual who can transform into a bird and manipulate time) have been kidnapped so the evil can force them into doing what they want.

A big problem is that it is very rare for someone to be able to see these evil creatures because of their powers of perception on almost everyone. This is where our male protagonist comes in, Jacob. He is a Peculiar child but does not know it until he and his father make a pilgrimage to a Welsh island to see the place his Grandfather stayed as a young Polish boy, a young Polish Jewish boy, who had escaped the Nazi's. He had told Jacob (and his father when he was young) "outlandish" tales of the Island, the Children and his life pursuing monsters. It all turned out to be true.

The story of this first book in this 6-book series, tells of how Jacob finds out about his abilities, his relationship with the other Peculiar children, the pivotal role of Miss Peregrine, and how and why he decides to stay with them to search for and defeat the evil creatures.

Any love for the fantastical? Read this book. Besides words, there are wonderful photographs that so many of the characters and places are derived from. I will quote from the Afterwords about the photos: "All the pictures in this book are authentic, vintage found photographs, and with the exception of a few that have undergone minimal post processing, they are unaltered." There is more said but it is an entire page so if you want to read more, pick up the book and look through it, then go to the back and read about the photos.

Anyway. Read this book. It is a new fantastical adventure. ( )

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.
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

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+
