When I saw this book, I knew I was getting myself into something very strange. This book is very unique, and yes very PECULIAR, but I really enjoyed it surprisingly! I think Ransom Riggs did a fantastic job on this book(going to be trilogy? series?) As a young adult author he brought something no one else really has. To write a series from strange weird photos was brilliant and some serious skills. I would recommend this book, so if you haven't read it, you really should. Don't let its strangeness appearance & not enough description on the back fool you! I still have not read the sequel Hollow City yet, but I do have it and probably will read it soon!
