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.

    The narrator had the wrong inflection in his voice much of the time during conversation so it made an otherwise excellent book seem a little askew when it came to the relationships of the characters.

    It started out slow I almost lost interest then it got better then very good then I was blown away. This book was crazy in a good way. I never expected to hear what I heard. I call this a must read. I will be getting the other two in the series as well. Wow.

    This book was great! I started reading the paperback book and was unable to physically continue reading it do to work and taking care of small children. This app has enabled me to complete this book in record time and I am looking forward to the next book in the trilogy.

    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.

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