Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs

My Rating: 4 of 5 Stars

My main comment upon completing Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children is that the book is…peculiar! In a good way, to my mind, though I know it’s not everyone’s cup of tea. I found it decidedly creepy and most unusual in every aspect. The dark mood of the prologue continued throughout the story, which, btw, is a definite change of pace from most stories I’ve read in recent years. The book doesn’t fit easily into any category, with its ghosts that aren’t, and fantasy that isn’t quite.  How to categorize it? I haven’t a clue. But that’s part of what made it fun to read.

In spite of not knowing exactly what to make of it, I enjoyed the book a lot, and finished it in two sittings. If you are looking for something most…peculiar… give it a try. The creepy old photos throughout are worth a look, all by themselves.  And the very original approach to this tale warrants a 4 stars from me.
