About the Author: Ransom Riggs

Hi, I m Ransom, and I like to tell stories Sometimes I tell them with words, sometimes with pictures, often with both I grew up on a farm on the Eastern shore of Maryland and also in a little house by the beach in Englewood, Florida where I got very tan and swam every day until I became half fish I started writing stories when I was young, on an old typewriter that jammed and longhand on legal pads When I was a little older I got a camera for Christmas and became obsessed with photography, and when I was a little older still my friends and I came into possession of a half broken video camera and began to make our own movies, starring ourselves, using our bedrooms and backyards for sets I have loved writing stories and taking photographs and making movies ever since, and have endeavored to do all three.

    Hi I m tired of defending myself for what I wrote on this stupid book So I thought I would do a favor to all you super fans out there that want to read a negative review of their favorite book WHY , and just hide it with spoiler tags So now, if Goodreads hasn t goofed, you can just see this review and move on Focus on reading books that you like instead of hunting down negative reviews for your favorite book Or

    When I was a child, one of my favourite things to do was to look through pictures in books children s picture books, colouring books, etc and tell stories in my mind with them For example, a picture of two children holding hands would start this story of friendship, which would then grow with every picture, introducing grander stories and dragons, unicorns, whatever the pictures gave me.Miss Peregrine s Home for Peculia

    Let me tell you a secret, Miss Peregrine s Home for Peculiar Children is actually I don t think what follows is a spoiler, but am marking it as such anyway as some people think it is view spoiler for elementary school kids.Yes, the book tries to pretend it is something else, embellishing itself with creepy and weird vintage photographsbut the reality is, it is nothingthan a regurgitated version of X Men hide spoiler Rarely do I

    This book has been getting a lot of well deserved attention for the way it incorporates unusual antique photographs into the narrative The premise Jacob grew up on his grandfather s stories about his own childhood during World War II Supposedly his grandfather escaped the Holocaust by taking refuge on a Welsh island, at an orphanage that catered to children with strange powers The grandfather even has photos to prove it As Jacob grows

    Edit on January 9th, 2016 I haven t thought about this book since I read it in July and I really have no interest any in reading the rest of the series It definitely was a slow moving book, but the plot really held my attention and I loved the use of the pictures Sometimes I felt like he tried a little too hard to make the pictures perfectly fit into the story which made it a little awkward to read, but they still made the reading experiencein

    I can t even.The poor execution of a good idea is just so upsetting to me.The main problem with this book is that the entire time I was reading I felt like a high school English teacher grading a student s paper, when in fact I am not a teacher or anyone who majored in English or writing If I am simply a normal reader thinking this, then who the hell was working as the editor Did they not bring up these issues Clearly the several people the author listed in his ackno

    This is just one of those books whose hype I don t really get I read this years ago when it was newly released, and was thoroughly unimpressed Upon my second reading of this book, my opinion remains unchanged.A few creepy pictures and some weird people do not a horror tale make, and honestly, that s all the story is It s a book about stories, and too much attention is focused on the telling of those stories instead of developing the actual plot As a result, the tale fell fla

    This book started with a bang It was very creepy, exciting and really intriguing, but it all went downhill from there Once the mystery around the house was explained which was fairly early and without any nuance it became a very boring and almost childish story, which I didn t expect at all One thing I can say I enjoyed was the photographs they re scattered throughout the book, all black and white and remarkably creepy They add a nice eery touch to the story and gives it a really un
