Jake loves his grandfather very much but cannot believe the wild stories that he tells of an orphanage that he was in before the war and the peculiar children he met there. When Abe Portman dies in quite disturbing circumstances Jake takes it rather badly and when he found a letter that had been left to him he decided to go and see if this 'island orphanage' exists. His father is a keen bird watcher and takes him to Wales to see what they find and as his father says put all this nonsense to rest at last.
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

5 Peculiar Stars *****

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 :-)

It's always quite a feat to introduce a magical world in a story and making it believable. And it's even more impressive when a new author achieves that with his first novel. With a series of unsettling old black and white photographs (mostly of children), Ransom Riggs comes up with a narrative so creepily engaging that it was with a pang when I came to the end. That there is a sequel reassured me that I could always go back to this world in a kind of "loop" that the author talks about, which is a kind of time travel portal, leading to September 3 1940, Wales, where peculiar children of the enigmatic Miss Peregrine resides.

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 first thing to strike you is of course, the stunningly atmospheric and creepy photographs throughout the book. The fact that the author’s woven a strange and fast-paced narrative between the photos makes it a unique read. It takes you back to being a kid. There really is something to exploring a story with immersive and darkly-fantastical visuals to match. It reminded me as well of the trend writers have nowadays to make character, setting and other boards to help plan their stories in pinterest, which I myself have started doing sometimes as a nice way of getting into the world-building process.

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 loved this book from page 1! I knew nothing about the story but was hooked right from the beginning. Full of surprises, twists and turns, not predictable at all, very much like some of the characters. I bought it on a whim as I saw the cover in a shop and decided it looked interesting and I am so glad!

When I bought this book I was very intrigued by the weird and slightly creepy pictures.

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.
