My rating: 2 of 5 stars
It should come as no surprise that a book entitled Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children would be a bit odd. The author’s use of creepy, vintage photographs certainly added a strange twist to the book. However, the plot itself wasn’t anything extraordinary. I got an old-timey X-Men vibe from the cover of the book and there really wasn’t much inside the pages to dispel that initial impression. The story takes a long while to get going and then abruptly ends. The author obviously is preparing for this to grow into a series but I am not sure I ever became invested enough in the characters or the plot to seek out the inevitable next book.
