Really enjoyed this Here s my booktalk This book has been getting a lot of well deserved attention for the way it incorporates unusual antique photographs into the narrative The premise Jacob grew up on his grandfather s stories about his own childhood during World War II Supposedly his grandfather escaped the Holocaust by taking refuge on a Welsh island, at an orphanage that catered to children with strange powers The grandfather even has photos to prove it As Jacob grows up, he loses faith in his grandfather, and assumes the stories were fantasies, the photos faked But when a horrible, inexplicable tragedy occurs, Jacob has to reevaluate Could those stories have been real Could this island refuge still exist so many years later And is it possible his grandfather s paranoia about monsters wasn t just paranoia Even without the photos, this would be a gripping story, but the photos add an irresistible element of mystery The first person narration is authentic, funny, and poignant I m loo Edit on January 9th, 2016 I haven t thought about this book since I read it in July and I really have no interest any in reading the rest of the series It definitely was a slow moving book, but the plot really held my attention and I loved the use of the pictures Sometimes I felt like he tried a little too hard to make the pictures perfectly fit into the story which made it a little I can t even.The poor execution of a good idea is just so upsetting to me.The main problem with this book is that the entire time I was reading I felt like a high school English teacher grading a student s paper, when in fact I am not a teacher or anyone who majored in English or writing If I am simply a normal reader thinking this, then who the hell was working as the editor Did they not bring up these issues Clearly the several people the author listed in his acknowledgements couldn t have been reading closely enough The text was just screaming amateur writer, please help What surprises me is that the author s background is in film Being that I myself have a background in film, I can tell you that the one thing that is stressed is making conclusive ideas Do not bring up something that has no relevance to the rest of the story because obviously in film, every second is costly, whereas of course in Microsoft Word there is so consequence to typing characters What bothered me most was that the author seemed unaware about how to properly use the gimmick of his entire book the old photographs, some photoshopped, some vintage original, to illustrate the world He used several of these pictures simply to use them, and I find out later that they in fact contribute nothing to the story.That s right There s no reason at all for them to be there.Often it seems th When I was a child, one of my favourite things to do was to look through pictures in books children s picture books, colouring books, etc and tell stories in my mind with them For example, a picture of two children holding hands would start this story of friendship, which would then grow with every picture, introducing grander stories and dragons, unicorns, whatever the pictures gave me.Miss Peregrine s Home for Peculiar Children reminds me of that.This story, for me, feels completely disjointed and messy It is evidently framed around this marvelous collection of creepy, vintage photographs, but the story is not smoothly incorporated It reads like you can imagine the author viewing each image and trying to find a way to fit it into the plot of the book Here s a weird image of a girl smoking a pipe and peeling potatoes, how can I make that part of the story Here s a creepy picture of some twins in clown outfits, how do I add that to the book And if you re thinking of reading this as a creepy bo This is just one of those books whose hype I don t really get I read this years ago when it was newly released, and was thoroughly unimpressed Upon my second reading of this book, my opinion remains unchanged.A few creepy pictures and some weird people do not a horror tale make, and honestly, that s all the story is It s a book about stories, and too much attention is focused on the telling of those stories instead of developing the actual plot As a result, the tale fell flat for me It was too distracting, and it was nowhere as creepy or weird as it touts itself to be.There is a severe lack of character development The children within the book are presented to us in a way one would display a circus freak They are defined by their eccentricities, and they are without much personality of their own In that sense, they really are no better than a circus freak, the way they are shown to us there is little empathy within the reader for them, they are sidelined.Further, it is slow The This book started with a bang It was very creepy, exciting and really intriguing, but it all went downhill from there Once the mystery around the house was explained which was fairly early and without any nuance it became a very boring and almost childish story, which I didn t expect at all One thing I can say I enjoyed was the photographs they re scattered throughout the book, all black and white and remarkably creepy They add a nice eery touch to the story and gives it a really unique flair.The plot is what I didn t like After its strong beginning, it fizzles into this bland and predictably dull tale Don t get me wrong It s very unique and unconventional so I can see it s appeal It s also well written and does stem from great creativity, but I found it lacked too much detail and sophistication The characters, too, fell flat and as a few things went unexplained we were left with scattered holes in the plot This book is marketed for young adults but definitely feels juveni Let me tell you a secret, Miss Peregrine s Home for Peculiar Children is actually I don t think what follows is a spoiler, but am marking it as such anyway as some people think it is view spoiler for elementary school kids.Yes, the book tries to pretend it is some 2.5 starsI wanted to like this way , and I really tried to As a huge X men fan, I kind of went into this book with such high hopes and expectations The book as a physical copy is done extremely well, the details, the creepy pictures, the way it is written is breathtaking Sadly the story disappointed me so much In the last few pages I didn t even care about any of the characters any I reall
