Things don't quite go according to plan and Jake finds the ruins of the orphanage he assumes everyone has now died that was there as the locals don't seem to know anything about it but that isn't the case at all. This is a wonderful fantasy type book and the characters are all slightly odd but that doesn't stop you liking them. The pictures that accompany the writing are fascinating and seem to capture the feeling of the book. This is a great read whatever your age and even though it is aimed at young adult I would say read it anyway it is a breath of fresh air and takes you to another dimension for a while
Can I just start by saying I haven't seen the film. There's a lot of rave reviews about it in movie land but before I saw it I wanted to experience the book. I prefer to read these 'major motion pictures' before the become 'major motion pictures.'
What I read was a mix of scary, fun, magical, bewilderment, joy, bravery, and of course Peculiar children.
It was fantastic. It's left me wanting a whole lot more which is why I bought the sequel to it, however I'm going to wait a little to digest this one before commencing reading the next.
I loved the whole concept of this book, the imagination of the author is brilliant. From the detail written I could totally imagine myself being there. Encountering what Jacob encounters along the way and being scared at the 'monsters.' It all worked for me.
It's going to stay with me for a while.
Happy Reading :-)
Jacob Portman spent much of his childhood listening to his grandfather talk about this orphanage that he grew up in, and the stories of his friends there, but they sound too fantastical to be true, and as he gets older, he becomes skeptical of what he takes to be tall tales thought up to entertain him, or just the ramblings of a deteriorating mind. It is only when tragedy strikes that Jacob finds he needs to go to the island where the orphanage is to find out more about his grandfather's past, and the truth is indeed stranger than fiction. While the action that follows forms the "meat" of the book, what moved me especially was the evolving relationship between Jacob and his grandfather, captured so succinctly yet vividly in the first part of the book, that made Jacob's determination to unravel his grandfather's past both believable and poignant.
A terrifyingly exciting read. Targeted for the YA market, but Riggs's creative imagination and writing makes this novel mighty fine for older adults as well.
The dank and yet luscious Welsh countryside with its spooky, abandoned house was a great backdrop. And it was great fun to read about the peculiar children and step into their world, fittingly balanced by the revolting monsters that hunted them.
I think more than anything though, this is a great book to show the creative, powerful effect images can have. It makes you want to get imagining your own stories and create different worlds from the everyday things you see around you.
I put off this book for nearly three months. I know it sounds ridiculous but I was too scared of what I'd find inside. I knew it was going to be a bit weird but I'm glad I finally read it.
I'm grateful it only took me about thirty or so paged to get into this book, because with books I'm not used to reading it can take much longer than that. It shouldn't take to long to read with the pictures, because they are so intriguing and bizarre they encourage you to read on and learn more about the characters and what will happen to them.
I loved this book. The plot was gripping, characters intriguing and the pictures were a great help with visualisation. I find that this book was very unique and give it five stars and recommend.
