Been a while since I picked up another book and I find this one right on time before I watch it’s film adaptation directed by Tim Burton.
A mysterious island. An abandoned orphanage. A strange collection of curious photographs.
A horrific family tragedy sets sixteen-year-old Jacob journeying to a remote island off the coast of Wales, where he discovers the crumbling ruins of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. As Jacob explores its abandoned bedrooms and hallways, it becomes clear that the children were more than just peculiar. They may have been dangerous. They may have been quarantined on a deserted island for good reason. And somehow—impossible though it seems—they may still be alive.
A spine-tingling fantasy illustrated with haunting vintage photography, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children will delight adults, teens, and anyone who relishes an adventure in the shadows.
I planned on finishing the book a few days before I watch the movie; however, I was not successful in doing so. I think I was already about two-thirds in the book when I watched the movie in the cinema and I regretted the decision. I wished I watched the movie first before starting the book, because in all honesty, the movie failed me. I was even so excited to watch it since it’s a Tim Burton film plus there’s the lovely Eva Green.
I guess I’ll just try to share my two cents about the movie right after I finish the book. :p
