Riggs gets 3.5 stars for book 1 of the Peculiar Children


Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children (Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children #1) by Ransom Riggs – 3.5 stars

Now this was unique and intriguing. Chilling and brilliant. The main reason I’m giving this book 3.5 stars is because it took me a while to read through it. Not because it was bad or uninteresting, but it was a bit slow.

Basically, Jacob seeks answers to the mystery that was his grandfather. In the process of finding clues, he discovers there might be more to him than he could have ever imagined. About half way through the book, the story line picks up. You finally meet the peculiar children.

This is story is one-of-a-kind, and I was hooked from the start. The only negative I really have is that there wasn’t enough action until the last quarter of the book. Granted, the plot was still enticing enough to keep me reading and thinking about what would happen next. It is a good book and worth the read!

Chilling. Unique. Tense.

The writing style of Riggs is fantastic. Each character has his/her way of speaking. The characters are relatable. The description is phenomenal. Especially when it comes to the photographs that are incorporated into the story. They add a chill to this tale and really pull you further into their world.

This story was tense and unforgettable.
