Book Review: Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children

A mysterious island. An abandoned orphanage. A strange collection of very curious photographs. Fiction is based on real black and white photographs. The death of grandfather Abe sends sixteen-year-old Jacob journeying to a remote island off the coast of Wales, where he discovers the crumbling ruins of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, and explores abandoned bedrooms and hallways. The children may still live. (Goodreads)

Yes, the cover looks creepy. Yes, there are many real vintage photographs inside that makes you scare. But other than that, there is no reason to be scared when you read this book.

It took me quiet long time to finish it, mostly because I am too afraid to read it alone. But after I finished it, I feel stupid. It is a children story or maybe teen story. Not too disappointed, because the story is quiet interesting and unpredictable but it is so far from what I expected.

If you want to read it just don't expect anything as creepy as the cover and you'll enjoy it I believe.
