Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
I want to try to do a review for this book here. I have never done a thing like this before, especially since I don’t want to give anything of the content, just in case you want to read it yourself. I told you about the book before in my weekly flashbacks
and throughout the whole book I felt a little like “where is this going
” … very interesting feeling that I don’t often have when reading. It was strong enough to keep me reading and weird enough to keep me thinking about it when I wasn’t reading. The book tells a story about a boy and what he finds out about his life and family. The video below I found on youtube and I think it’s the add to the book, I think it gives you an idea but will not give too much away about the story itself.
All in all I enjoyed reading this alot! And I loved how the book was “designed” as well, it contains a whole lot of pictures, even the electronic version did! That made this book a sweet piece of art as well. The only thing I didn’t like is that it seems to be the first part of a series, which I don’t find bad generally speaking, I just want to know such a thing when starting to read. It just alters the expectations I have in a book and its story.
Would I recommend this? I sure will! It’s sooo different to what you normally find to read and soo interesting. Very well written. Very unexpected story line. So many new ideas. I have never read anything like this.
my kindle let’s me bookmark things I liked, and these two sentences I liked alot:
“If all the suns but ours collapsed tonight, how many lifetimes would it take us to realize we were alone?”
“I used to dream about escaping my ordinary life, but my life was never ordinary. I had simply failed to notice how extraordinary it was.”
