Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children Book Review


I started this book 2 days ago and I couldn’t put it down. So much happened within this book and each chapter got better and better. I enjoyed how the pictures were written into the story. The pacing was really good and worked well with the story. The beginning I found slow, but gradually the book started picking up the pace which I really enjoyed.  It all seemed to be building up to that final fight scene.

The world building I found really good. I thought it was really clever how the author used a bit of time travel to put a certain day in the past on a repeated loop. The writing style was brilliant. The descriptions of things, places and experiences was so well done that I could see whatever Jacob could see and experience everything that he experienced which I really like when it comes to reading these type of books.

Jacob was such an interesting character to read about. I liked how he started off being a normal boy and developed into a peculiar child who will do anything to look after his friends and keep them safe.

The peculiar children were also really interesting to read about due to their peculiarities and how they came together as a group to fight off the evil. Their friendships was really nice to read about and I also liked reading about how they always stick together and help each other out.

Miss Peregrine was so nice and looked after Jacob while he was at the home. I hope to read more about her in the next book.

I didn’t really like Jacob’s dad. Yes, he wanted what was best for his son, but I think that he should’ve given him more freedom. He kept on asking so many questions whenever Jacob wanted to do something and I kept on thinking that he should be able to spend some time on his own as well.

I loved this book so much and I highly recommend this book for anyone who wants to read something new and different and a bit spooky. I gave this book a 4 out of 5 stars.

Have you read this book? If not, are you thinking of reading it? What were your thoughts?
