I truly do love the idea of these books. A bunch of kids that have powers that are called peculiar children. They stay in time-loops in order not to draw attention to themselves and to protect themselves from wights and their pet hollows.
The kids have a caretaker, called a ymbryne (she maintains the time loop and transforms into a bird sometimes) is taken from them by the wights, but thankfully they steal her back.
So now that they have Miss Peregrine, their ymbryne, back, they wait for her to turn back into a person. And she doesn’t. They learn she was poisoned because it is easier to transport them and manage them in bird form. And they only have a few days before she is stuck as a bird forever.
They have to do this and not get killed by hollows or wights or whatever else is out there.
Like how scary for a group of young kids is that?
There are old time-like pictures through out the book that give you an idea of what the kids are looking at as well. Which is a cool idea to do with strange pictures taken forever ago.
The writing is good but sometimes I find myself reading over words and not comprehending what I just read. It’s taken me a week with this book when it should have been a day and a half. It’s a good book but I think the writing just doesn’t draw in my attention.
I will read the last book as well! I like them a lot and the story and the idea. I just didn’t mesh well with the writing I guess.
