    AMAZING!

    WOW! What a book! Even though it is a short novel -eleven chapters- it is such a fascinating, interesting, jaw-dropping, adventurous book that I could not put down ! The story line is so unique and different it makes you want to continue reading. I cannot wait to purchase the second book to continue and find out what happens. Most definitely worth reading !

    Inspiring and entertaining

    This book reminded me of the immensely magical and mystical quality of the world we live in. Things are rarely as ordinary as they seem. I enjoyed the cinematic style. I found the photographic inspiration both original and engaging. A truly enjoyable read.

    5 Stars All the Way!

    I absolutely enjoyed this book! Found out as I was half through that its classed as a young adult novel, well I am 53 yrs young and loved every minute of it! The only drag for me now is that we have to wait till January 2014 for the sequel.... Ohhhhh I'm waiting with baited breath! :)

    Creative genius

    I really loved the creativity. I thought that each of the peculiar children were so memorable. When I finally read the sequel almost 2 years after I read this one, I still remembered each of the individual characters. It was really well written.

    Unexpected

    When I started reading this book I had a hard time getting involved this novel only has 12 chapters and it wasn't until chapter 5-6 that my attention was captivated. It was honestly not what I expected, and draws you to start the sequel book right away. I will say that Ransom Riggs is one of the most detailed with his descriptions, which kept me reading. In the end worth the read. The use of vintage pictures and how he intertwined them into the story was quite spectacularm so skilled.
