Miss Peregrin's Book Review
I just finished reading Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs. (Isn't that a great name?) If you haven't read it yet, you should. I can't think of a thing to say about it that wouldn't be complimentary. Ransom Riggs doesn't waste a single word. It's absolutely magical how clear the imagery comes across, without loss of any love for the language! The story and the design of the book work so well together; they create an experience that is spine-tingling and and intense without being gruesome. It sucks you in so well! I was reading as fast as I could, not only to find out what happens next, but to see what the next picture would be! Concerning the characters, I started to get worried that too many would be introduced, but was pleased to find that each has an important role to fill with each complex personality. I also have to say that this book has possibly the most believable adolescent love story I think I've ever read- my toes were curling! So pick it up. Whatever it is you normally read, pick this book up and devour it!
