Synopsis: ‘A mysterious island. An abandoned orphanage. A strange collection of curious photographs.
A horrific family tragedy sets 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. As Jacob explores its abandoned bedrooms and hallways, it becomes clear that the children were more than just peculiar. They may have been dangerous. They may have been quarantined on a deserted island for good reason. And somehow—impossible though it seems—they may still be alive.
A spine-tingling fantasy illustrated with haunting vintage photography, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children will delight adults, teens, and anyone who relishes an adventure in the shadows.’
Yes the children are peculiar, but the mystery is creepy. I can only imagine how terrifying the movie is going to portray the monsters, the hollows. My imagination conjures up creepy, horrifying images all by itself with just the book, let alone sitting in a dark theatre with loud music accompanying the visual, moving monsters. It will scare the living daylights out of me.
Suffice to say, the book is great. The hollows are scary, the children peculiar, and the book intriguing. This is the first in the series and I cannot wait to read the next instalment. By the end of the book, my questions were far from answered and a resolution still a way away. So I’m off to read book 2 ‘Hollow City’ .
If you like a great mystery, with intriguing characters, amazing scenery and words that conjure moving pictures in your own imagination, then this book is for you.
