Just Closed... [Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children]

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar ChildrenMiss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I thought this book had a somewhat slow start. However, it got really good and interesting toward the middle and ended pretty well, also. I had a few times where I thought I might not keep reading it and just return it to the library, but I had read some good reviews and was curious to see how things would turn out. It was quite the fantasy novel and very reminiscent of the well known X-Men movies. I enjoyed the pictures through out and think it really added to the already vivid imagery that the author was able to create through his word usage. If you are looking for a book that grips you right from the start, this might not be your cup of tea. But if you are looking for a book that is enjoyable once you get through some of the "introductory" matters, then you would probably enjoy this.
