This is the most delightful story that I have read in a long time. It is a tale for all age groups. I am not going to discuss the content of the book so as not to ruin the experience for the other reader. I will tell you that Jacob, his father, grandfather, psychiatrist, Miss Peregrine, and all her charges are all extremely believable and well written characters. The author has a way of drawing you in to the story, making you feel as if you are right there with them fighting for their lives and to save Miss Peregrine and her peers. I picked up this book on a Saturday afternoon and never put it down. I read it all in one shot because it simply captivated me that much. I am hoping that the author has a sequel coming because there was room left in the story for one. What really got me though was at the end where the author thanks various individuals for their contributions of photographs used in the book as well as display of these photos. Are we supposed to believe that these photos are indeed real and haven't been doctored? Me, I guess I am a believer or I wouldn't be writing this. Hmmmmmmmm.

Enjoyed the story and characters. The pictures that were randomly picked to go with the story are great. They added to the story and made you feel that it was real. I am looking forward to reading more about the pecular children's adventure.
An ok read

Not a bad read. I was expecting one thing and got another. It reminded me more of a YA novel. The pictures were a neat touch.
