Review: Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
I didn't like the writing much, and I kind of hated the beginning. First we get to meet the lead guy's grandfather, who then dies, and then suddenly we are skipping through a year where he is so depressed and etc. He also has no friends. He had one almost best friend to "protect him" at school, against what, I have no idea, since we never read about him being at school. But then he lost said friend.
I just did not understand the meaning of the whole year that was skipped through. But, after many pages the book started to get better. I still didn't care for the writing, but it started getting interesting and full of mystery. And a tiny bit of stupid romance. That didn't feel like romance at all. But still.
PS: I liked that this book had pictures in it. Although the pictures where kind of creepy. But creepy awesome.
Don't want to say too much of the book, because that would spoil it, but it is an interesting book. And if you have time, it is something you should read :) Although it ended very.. mean. With a cliffhanger. So there must be another book. But I don't think there will be. At least not until 2013, goodreads says o.O But I shall pick that up, then :)
