Series: Miss Peregrine, Bk 1

ISBN: 9781594744761

Length: 3489 pages + index of pictures and collection

Obtained: Library book club book

Why this book:

My discussion group was reading it, the movie is coming out, and I've wanted to read it anyway.


This was a peculiar and enjoyable book.  The pictures were great additions, the story and characters and setting were all intriguing, and the overall atmosphere was a wonderful creepy/magical.

Jacob has always had a close relationship with his grandfather, but it has become more distant since Jacob has grown older and become less tolerant of his grandfather's fantastical tales.  But then he witnesses/experiences something tragic, and while coping with the resulting emotions, discovers a world bigger than he ever imagined.

I want to continue with the series (I already have the second book, Hollow City, checked out), but I'm hesitating because I don't know if I'd rather read it and experience the pictures, or listen to it (the audio is supposed to be great).

And the movie comes out today.  I don't know when I'll get to see it, but I'm excited.
