Overall it’s an okay book. The story is interesting, but sometimes the writing gets so cheesy and cliche I want barf, that being said I will finish the series out.

A mysterious island. An abandoned orphanage. A strange collection of very curious photographs. As our story opens, a horrific family tragedy sets 16-year-old Jacob journeying to a remote island off the coast of Wales, where he discovers the 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. And somehow—impossible though it seems—they may still be alive.

What about Jesse Bernstein’s performance did you like?

I almost didn't buy this audio book because of all of the negative reviews on the narrator, but honestly his voices didn't take away that much from the story to me. I have heard better, but it wasn't as horrible as everyone claims. I still enjoyed the audio version.

Any additional comments?

Ignore all of the accent snobs, it's still worth listening to. It's a good story.

As this question fills the airwaves with anticipation, their legions of fans continue to multiply and ask a different series of questions, like: Who are these people? What's the secret to their success? And is Chip actually that funny in real life?

I thoroughly enjoyed not only the story, but the glory they give to God in their life. I personally found this to be a very inspiring and uplifting book that I could listen to again and again. I love when books like this are read by their authors, and this one did not disappoint! It feels more like you're sitting at a kitchen table having a conversation and listening to their story than it does that you're listening to a book.
