Audio Book Summary

A mysterious island.

An abandoned orphanage.

A strange collection of very curious photographs.

It all waits to be discovered in Miss Peregrines Home for Peculiar Children, an unforgettable novel that makes for a thrilling listening experience. As our story opens, 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 Peregrines 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.

A spine-tingling fantasy, Miss Peregrines Home for Peculiar Children will delight adults, teens, and anyone who relishes an adventure in the shadows.

    Wasn't at all like I expected it to be. Should have read reviews before downloading. It's not horror. You can see everything coming from a mile away but it's still introduced as if we were supposed to be surprised. I thought the narration was cheesy, but it fits the book.

    I wanted to like this more than I did. I was not aware of how young the narration is geared, and YA just really isn't my scene. Parts of the book were very entertaining, and Riggs writes well, but the overall sequence of events to me felt a little shallow, predictable, and cliche. I'm not usually the person who can see ten steps forward into a book's plot, but I really felt that way in this one. I liked the narrator when he wasn't doing accents, but I wish that he'd left well enough alone if he didn't 'have' the appropriate regional accents, the Welsh, the 'thick Irish', et cetera. The overwrought attempt made it difficult for me to connect to the other characters in the book.

    I had never heard of the book before the movie and I wanted to read it before seeing it. I'm not done yet but I can already say I'm gonna love it. I like books that don't take too long in jumping into action. The narration is spot on as well very pleasant voice.

    A wonderfully engaging story. I can\'t wait to listen to the sequels. The narration was enjoyable also. The accents are well done and you can easily recognize the character being portrayed. Great listening.

    A very engaging story, but the narration is terrible, with a capital Horrible. It distracts from the story, and I was often left feeling nauseous from the see-sawing, screeching accents and misplaced vocal inflections. If you can suffer through this reading, definitely check out the sequels. It\'s far more pleasant to listen to.

    I cannot rate the book because I never finished it. The narrator\'s portrayal of female voices was so off that it was distracting and I could not take anything he said serious. I probably wouldn\'t mind listening to him voice a third party narrator but not when he has to go between different characters especially female. I will have to read the rest of the book.

    Fantastic narration, very engaging. The story is amazing! Haven\'t seen the movie yet, but hopefully it is just as incredible. Will definitely be getting the sequels.
