What would you do if you realized everything you'd ever known didn't hold the slightest bit of truth no matter how much you wanted to believe otherwise?
Jacob Portman is an awkward and lonesome teenager who believes his life is never going to amount to anything. He grew up breathless at his grandfather's countless tales that seemed to be woven from the most clever of imaginations. But one day, he decides he's too wise for his grandfather's laughable stories and seems to wish they never existed... That is until a tragic family trauma makes Jacob question everything he ever thought possible --the far fetched fables that his grandfather spun as well as his grandfather's marred past included.
<b>Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children</b> is the utterly fascinating first installment to Ransom Riggs' spectacular trilogy <b>Miss Peregrine's Peculiar Children.</b> It will leave you craving for more long after the last page is turned.
The way Riggs' writes is so smooth and flawless, it's like reading a fairytale fit for kings and queens. It's so fluid and detailed. The character's are fleshed out perfectly and each have their own quirks and intricacies.
The worldbuilding is so well thought out and infused that I didn't ever want to stop reading and there was action to boot.
The only flaw I saw within this book was the chapter lengths which could be very tedious to get through and I could get a bit flustered at times but if you want a unique story, I highly recommend this book. It's full of fantasies, horrors, a little bit of romance and just a hint of humor everyone is sure to love.
