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.

    I read this book and then we listened to it on a recent road trip. The audio version was actually better than reading the story. The narrator for this is excellent. Thank you.

  • Bridget Lee

    This was a enjoyable book. Well worth the commute. I was disappointed by the ending. I cant image how disappointed children would be to have such an ending.

  • Anthiny Nugent

    Thoroughly enjoyed the book and the narration, I can understand peoples gripes about the accents but I loved them.

  • Joanne George

    The book it\'s self is great but the narrators voice is quite bothersome. They way he\'s trying to do the different accents just doesn\'t work. Xx

  • Teresa Chapman

    Narrator distracted from the story...but it was a great story!

    I have to agree with most of the other reviewers. While the story is a good one, the narrator really makes me almost not want to finish it. He is fine when he\'s just speaking as the main character, but his inability to do character voices is glaring. I worked in the voiceover industry and animation for a while, so I do know where I am coming from on this - this guy cannot do accents!!! What\'s particularly maddening is that not only do all of his weird voices sound totally unbelievable as human beings, not a single one is doing a WELSH accent!!! My boyfriend is from Wales and I\'ve been there - none of these terrible voices sound remotely Welsh!
