Book review: Miss peregrine's home for Peculiar Children by randsom riggs SPOILERS

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children (Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children, #1)Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Verdict  :  It  was okay
3.5 out of 5
August 22- September 16

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.

Review : This book was and enjoyable ride Jacob's grandfather has been telling him these stories since he was little and he used to believe them but as he got older he didn't so anymore until one day when he went to visit his grandfather and his grandfather was attacked by a monster and his family called him crazy cause he said he saw a monster he was sent to therapy Jacob and his father end up going to wales so Jacob can see this house which is falling apart . Jacob wants to see if he can find any of the people who lived in the house way back then but there all dead killed by the bombs . And then Jacob goes to this house one last time and he see them the children and he's chasing after them and ends up back in there time before they were killed it's called a loop so the day repeats day after day he meets Emma a girl who tried to kill him because she thought he was endangering her . we meet a lot of interesting characters and I loved the photograph element added to the book it made it more interesting . Bad things are happening outside of the loop sheep are ending up murdered some guy was killed and there is a strange person around . Emma and Jacob's grandfather were involved and Jacob and Emma end up sort of liking each other . The house was under attack a weigt ended up taking miss peregrine . Jacob killed one who was his therapist. Jacob decides he wants to stay with them but he has to tell his father and when he's about to everyone shows up it was a funny scene I'm looking forward to reading the next book.
I used to dream about escaping my ordinary life, but my life was never ordinary. I had simply failed to notice how extraordinary it was.

We cling to our fairy tales until the price for believing in them becomes too high.”

Stars, too, were time travelers. How many of those ancient points of light were the last echoes of suns now dead? How many had been born but their light not yet come this far? If all the suns but ours collapsed tonight, how many lifetimes would it take us to realize we were alone? I had always known the sky was full of mysteries—but not until now had I realized how full of them the earth was.”

“How many times have I told you? Polite persons do not take supper in the nude

I don't mean to be rude' I said, 'but what are you people?'
'We're peculiar,' he replied, sounding a bit puzzled. 'Aren't you?;
'I don't know. I don't think so'
'That's a shame.”
