Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children

(6)

A mysterious island.
An abandoned orphanage.
A strange collection of very curious photographs.
It all waits to be discovered in "Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children," an unforgettable novel that mixes fiction and photography in a thrilling reading 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 Peregrine's 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 illustrated with haunting vintage photography, "Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children" will delight adults, teens, and anyone who relishes an adventure in the shadows.

Ransom Riggs wuchs in einem kleinen Fischerdorf im südlichen Florida auf, einer Region, in der sich viele Amerikaner zur Ruhe setzen.

Ransom Riggs dreht heute Werbefilme für Firmen wie Absolut Vodka und Nissan und arbeitet als Drehbuchautor, Journalist und Fotograf.

In dieser ungewöhnlichen Geschichte macht sich Jacob auf den Weg zu den "besonderen Kindern", der Such nach sich selbst und der Geschichte seines verstorbenen Grossvaters. Riggs ist ein tolles Buch gelungen, insbesondere die Fotografien haben mich fasziniert. Der Autor hat Jahre der Recherche investiert und Kisten voll alter Fotografien durchwühlt, bis er jene zusammen hatte, um die herum er seine Geschichte webte.

A story about regret, loss and the consequences to choices we make. Jacob describes himself as “normal”. He lives a protected and agonizingly boring life. He has no friends and is really close with his grandfather, who told him many gruesome stories about his childhood. About children with peculiar abilities being chased by monsters. Jacob does not believe that these stories are real, but rather fairytales. Until his grandfather dies of rather strange reasons. From then on, everything changes for Jacob. He wants to find out the truth, despite the disbelief of his parents and his psychiatrist. The book is a science-fiction/horror/fantasy-all-in-one. The story is fascinating, fast-paced and has a very peculiar sense of humor. I loved the photographs displayed in the book. They made the story much more special. All of them are real photographs collected by all kinds of people. Everytime Jacob describes one of the children, the matching picture helps in visualizing them. They also give the book an eerie feeling. Riggs has collected all of the pictures on yard sales, flea markets and from other collectors and invented the story to match the pictures and not the other way round. I think that this is very fascinating, because it shows just how much imagination Riggs has. I liked that the peculiar children not only had the “ordinary-fantasy-abilities”, but also very special skills, that I have not yet heard of before, like the boy, who had bees living inside of him, or the girl, who has a mouth on the back of her head. The way, time is displayed in this book is really intriguing. The loop is nothing new, there are many stories where someone traveled through a “gate” and arrived in a past or the future. However, Riggs added a new aspect with the headmistress, who is responsible for the loop and has to take care of it. It completely makes sense to me, that someone has to travel through the loop every so often to keep it open. There are two aspects, which did not make sense to me. For one, Jacob does not sound like a teenager. I know he lived a very sheltered life and spent most of his life with his grandfather, but there was never a moment, when I really could identify myself with him. Additionally, I am disturbed with the relationship between Emma and her history with Jacob’s grandfather. You don’t start a relationship with the grandson of your Ex!!! Nevertheless, I loved, loved, loved the book!

Ich entdeckte das Buch zufällig und war angetan von dem wunderbaren Cover. In zwei Tagen hatte ich das Buch schließlich durch. Es ist großartig von beginn an. Zu beginn ist alles verworren und gleicht einem tollen Schauerroman, macht an einem gewissen Punkt jedoch eine komplette Kehrtwende und wird zu einer Geschichte in der es um viel mehr geht, als das Gänsehautefeeling, das man zu beginn hat. Ich verschlang jedes Wort und las das Buch direkt noch ein zweites mal. Die Bilder unterstreichen sowohl das Gänsehautfeeling als auch die wunderbare Geschichte ohne einen in der eignen Fantasie einzuschränken. Ich kann es wirklich nur jedem ans Herz legen, der auf mistery und fantasy steht.
