The ending left me wanting more, but I was pleased to read on the author's blog on Goodreads that he is writing a sequel. I think this would make a great movie also, and according to Wikipedia, the rights to the story have been bought by 20th Century Fox and Tim Burton will direct.
This novel was quite different from what the genres I usually read, but I enjoyed it. I liked the way the author built the story around the curious looking, and sometimes haunting, vintage photographs.
A family tragedy, and a curious collection of old photographs, sets 16 year old Jacob journeying to a remote island off the coast of Wales, to find the place his grandfather lived as a child, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. As Jacob explores the crumbling ruins of the home, it becomes clear that the children were more than peculiar, and that they may still be alive.It's hard to describe this story without giving away too much of the plot. If you are expecting a horror story or a thriller though, that is not this kind of story, (and not the kind I read either.) I think I would put it more in the adventure/fantasy category.
