Title: Library of Souls
Author: Ransom Riggs
About the book: It’s the third and final novel in the Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children series.
First impressions: I liked the first two books. It’s been a while since I read them though, so I forgot some details, but they started coming back to me.
Characters: This novel follows Jacob and Emma more than the others. I enjoyed getting to know the both of them better. Jacob develops a great deal over the course of this story and the entire series in general.
“Doubt is the pinprick in the life raft.”
Writing: I love the photographs. Having images made imagining everything easier. There’s a good balance between photos and text as the author didn’t include too many or too few.
Riggs is descriptive but doesn’t dump too much information all at once. He describes what’s going on in the pictures, but also lets them speak for themselves.
I appreciate that the romance isn’t too prominent. The storyline focuses heavily on rescuing the peculiar children as well as the ymbrynes. That said, I didn’t mind Jacob and Emma’s relationship.
The book doesn’t feel too short or too long at around 450 pages.
Final thoughts: The ending ties up loose ends and answers lingering questions.
I’d recommend Library of Souls if you’re a fan of fantasy stories in addition to vintage photography. It’s an odd story, but that makes the book more fun to read.
