If you didn’t know before, I’m a new volunteer at Ketts books and am a member of the young adult reading group. I have recently read Miss Peregrines home for peculiar children and found it thoroughly enjoyable. Definitely found it strange at first because I don’t normally read those types of books. It was a real page turner and it had larger than life characters with amazing abilities: from being able to make fire out of nothing to being invisible. The fast pace was sustained throughout and many parts were suspenseful. I found that it was a mixture of lots of different genres but particularly focused on the super natural genre. In my opinion the main character was realistic and very relate-able(apart from his conflicts with monsters of course!). I enjoyed it so much that I think I’ll read the next one, its a trilogy (I think). Normally I read books by Ben Kane, Terry Pratchett and George R.R Martin (Song of Ice and fire or better known as Game of Thrones). Recently I’ve started reading classics like: Fahrenheit 451, The Iliad, Brave new world, 1984 and others. Definitely a must read from me. The only negative I have about this book is I sometimes found the pictures jarring because I like to imagine the characters. I’d give it five stars. Looking forward to discussing further the pros and the cons of the book in question. Looking forward also to see what books you’d recommend and enjoyed.
