Thoughts on a Book: Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children

  1. Have you read this book and said to yourself, “Tim Burton should snap its rights and turn it into a film?” Based on the director’s recent screen outings, most probably not. But back when Burton was still awesome, you’d most likely petition him to transform this into a film.
  2. Jacob is a noble character. He sets on a perilous trip to a remote island in order to  understand his deceased grandfather, hoping to redress the rumors surrounding his life. Like classic characters before, he learned more about himself more than his grandfather. Overused but Jacob is as unpredictable as the book. This is the main appeal of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children – one does not have an iota of idea where the narration is heading.  
  3. The peculiar children in question is indeed peculiar. Like the more famous mutants in pop culture but quirkier. These kids include  dead-raisers and fire-summoners. But imagine them wearing pre-modern era clothes instead of superhero spandex and the image is just incredible. Though there is no need for too much imagination because the book includes photographs. 
  4. ABSOLUTELY CREEPY photographs. NOT A SCARY STORY but I did not dare read it before going to sleep. Those photos scream goosebumps. 
  5. The idea of semi-immortality in Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children is really thought-provoking. Living forever seems like a cool idea until one realizes going through all the pain suffering as people around you die is nothing but hell on earth. Immortality has fascinated people since civilizations began but a life well-lived is loads better.
