Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children [Review]
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children is the debut novel by American Author Ransom Riggs. The book tells the tale of a boy who, following a horrific family tragedy, follows clues that take him to an abandoned orphanage on a Welsh island.
The story is told through a combination of narrative and vernacular photographs from the personal archives of collectors listed by the author.
A film adaptation of the book is now released. It is directed by Tim Burton from a screenplay by Jane Goldman. Eva Green was cast as Miss Peregrine in the film, along with Asa Butterfield as Jacob, and Ella Purnell as Emma Bloom.
The movie is pretty good since the story is marvelous, but I noticed some week sceneries and production mistakes all over the movie. Moreover, there are some missing information, like where did Jacob’s dad end up? How did Jacob get to his grandpa’s house so quickly? Why didn’t the twins exercise their powers way, way earlier and just turn everyone to stone?
