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 story was fun and full of imagination. I will definitely read the subsequent books. I would recommend for most ages (contains curse words in a few parts). My enjoyment of the book was hampered by the narrator's poor accents and flat reading. Considering the majority of the characters had an accent, it would've been nice to have a narrator who conveyed them properly. His inflection was off too.

  • Nanna Larsen

    Very good, the narrator had a few hiccups, but it was otherwise a great listen. I do however think that the pictures are very important to the story, and would suggest a link to a pdf of the pictures be provided so it is possible to look at the photos when they are referenced.

  • Char Barba

    The narration was the best I have ever listened to. He did dozens of character voices. I will be looking for another book he narrates for my next book. I really enjoyed this story as well, I would recommend it to any Harry Potter fans.

    Great book! Narrator was fine until he tried to do the accents..... not pretty.

  • Vivian Dowd

    It was awesome you did amazing this is the best book in the world

  • Heather Thorp

    I liked the story very much, but the narrator's awful English/Welsh accents drove me mad! When he spoke in his US voice he was fine, but the English and Welsh were really poor. To be fair, it didn't stop me from loving the story and enjoying it's unusual and imaginative storyline.

  • Kristen Norris

    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.

  • Catrina Scicchitano

    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.
