Description

A mysterious island. 

An abandoned orphanage. 

A strange collection of very curious photographs. 

It all waits to be discovered in Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, an unforgettable novel that makes for a thrilling listening experience. 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 crumbling 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. 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 Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children will delight adults, teens, and anyone who relishes an adventure in the shadows.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Great book for the weirdness Burtonlike lovers

I really liked This book, at first, we enter a world , kind of created by Tim Burton like, It is rather disconcerting, then the story unfolds in front of us, but always with the nice touch of weirdness and bizzare (the picture help a lot in This aspect ) and It is really magic !!!
I really advise people to Read It, or to listen to This audio book, since the narrator is really good.

It might be better to actually read this.

I really enjoyed the story and characters, and Jesse Bernstein does a fantastic job as the main character. Unfortunately his accents and voices for other characters were pretty terrible. Until the very end, when I was so absorbed by the story I didn't care, I dreaded every time Emma or Miss Peregrine needed to speak.

narration problem

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Sure. Its a fantastical story with a realistic base. Just my thing.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children?

The scene of the main character groping around in the dark in a strange, ancient, and beat up house full of ghosts, and experiencing a sense of being in between worlds, simultaneously with the pain of being a family member affected by the holocaust.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Jesse Bernstein?

Frank Muller, any day of the week. Anyone but Bernstein really.

Could you see Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

Yes.

Any additional comments?

This narrator does not only make anyone with an accent sound like an idiot or a ghoul, but his reading also completely lacks proper timing and emphasis. Its like he doesn't know how human beings speak. If I had less of an imagination, he would have completely ruined the book for me. As far as the supposed cursing is concerned, its not an issue, unless you are a small child or very oversensitive. Cursing level is pretty every-day.

Good story, awful narrator

I will buy this book in paperback form as I honestly had to stop listening on Audible due to the terrible accents of the narrator.

I recommend reading this one - not listening.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

The writer seemed to want to add new twists and information where none was needed. The different time periods and plots were interesting by themselves but didn't fit well together and that created a very unbelievable group of characters and plot. Most of the characters were only developed on the surface and you quickly lost interest in what each was doing and contributing. I think that if the writer had expanded on pretty much everything it would have been successful but then it would have neared 500 pages. Next time, less is more.

How could the performance have been better?

Te reader didn't seem able to perform the many accents needed for the storyline. Most of the characters had labored dialogue and in all honesty it made me ready for the book to end so the dragging and awkward accents would end.

Great story but horrific narrator...

Story was great but narrated by a guy who has no clue how to do a British accent and as I'm a Brit it was very difficult to listen to someone mangle the accent so badly. I wish the story had picked up faster in the beginning but it was difficult to stop once Jacob got to the island.

Did he just say MODMON???? (madman)

Is there anything you would change about this book?

I wouldn't change much about the story. It's wonderfully engaging and full of great fantasy mixed with reality and lots of suspense.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children?

The twist was good!

Would you be willing to try another one of Jesse Bernstein’s performances?

No. This book is set in Wales. While most of the people are Welsh, there are also Irish, English, and Scottish characters. Every single character that Mr. Bernstein portrayed that wasn't American sounded like some horrible Dick Van Dyke version of cockney or like Jason Statham after a stroke. The children's voices reminded me of the Artful Dodger if he was developmentally disabled. It was painful and it took a lot to try to ignore it.

Do you think Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

It has one. That part annoyed me. It was blatently obvious at the end of this book that I was going to have to listen to the next one. I am currently doing so and thankfully the narrator is different.

Just Missed the Mark

What did you like best about Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children? What did you like least?

Enjoyed the secret world and surrounding characters were interesting and different; not your typical werewolf & vampire faire.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

Tale well woven but sudden ending left characters & storyline not as neatly tied up as it could have been. The scary parts were a little ridiculous, but the details of the house and the story of Emma & the grandfather & main character were well done. The parents were unbelievable and too non-existent. I would have given them more depth or killed them off earlier.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

British accents were bloody awful and geriatric. Couldn't enjoy connection between characters b/c I was wondering why Eliza Doolittle and her Father's cockney accents were blaring through my headphones.

Any additional comments?

Worth my time to listen. Good concept, but not carried to fruition. Not a fave, but enjoyed.

Interesting Story

What did you like best about Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children? What did you like least?

The story was very interesting and fairly well written. A bit slow at the start, but it does pick up after a short while. I greatly enjoyed listening to it...that is until it came time for Jesse Bernstein to speak with an accent. I could barely stand listening to it. The overall performance was not bad, but be prepared to cringe every time a character with an accent speaks!

Would you be willing to try another one of Jesse Bernstein’s performances?

I may be willing to Bernstein another chance, as long as I knew that no accents would be involved in the book.

Could you see Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

I think this book does have potential to be a wonderful movie!

Any additional comments?

Overall, I really did enjoy this book. It kept my attention throughout, and always looked forward to listening to more. If it weren't for the terrible accents (which really distracted from the story), I would've rated this book a bit higher. Definitely worth the listen though!

Amerikanische Sprecher und britische Akzente...

Fantastisch und ein bisschen gruselig ist "Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children" und somit ein wirklich sehr nettes Buch für Heranwachsende und Junggebliebene.
Wegen einiger kleiner Logiklöcher (über die die meisten aber sicherlich getrost hinwegsehen können) würde ich dem Buch 4 1/2 von 5 Sternen geben.
Den weiteren Stern-Abzug begründe ich mit dem wirklich unterirdischen britischen Akzent des Sprechers. Solange er normal mit seinem eigenen amerikanischen Akzent spricht, ist alles in Ordnung. Nur jedesmal, wenn er sich an einem britischen (oder gar irischen, brrrr) versucht - was bei Dialogen natürlich häufig genug vorkommt, da Miss Peregrine und die meisten ihrer Schützlinge eben britischen Ursprungs sind - merkt man, dass der Sprecher (Jesse Bernstein) deutlich langsamer wird, da er offenbar über die Aussprache eines jeden Wortes erst einmal nachdenken muss, was dann so klingt als hätte er eine Valium zuviel eingeworfen... Dazu kommt, dass das Endergebnis des ganzen Nachdenkens vermutlich nicht einmal einen Englisch-Anfänger auch nur eine Schrecksekunde lang über die amerikanischen Wurzeln des Sprechers hinwegzutäuschen vermag. Nun jaaa...
Wen so etwas aber nicht gerade ganz extrem stört, kann sich sicherlich damit abfinden. Die Geschichte ist es aus meiner Sicht jedenfalls wert. Viel Spaß beim Anhören.

'Filmreif'

Die Idee des Buches ist ganz nett, und ich hab es auch gern durchgehört. Ein großer Wurf ist es aber nicht. Mich persönlich störte der sehr amerikanische Akzent des Sprechers (vielleicht höre ich zuviel Britisches?). Auch habe ich immer wieder zwischendrin den Kopf schütteln müssen bei Beschreibungen, die absolut 'Filmreif' waren - Szenen, die zu Standard-Hollywood-Filmnummern gehören. Literatur ist eigentlich keine Filmszenenbeschreibung. Aber für ein paar Stunden Unterhaltung hat das Buch gesorgt.

Nice story red badly

The story keeps its promises but the reading of Mr. Bernstein is partly exaggerated, partly shallow and all in all hard to bear. I wantend to know how the tale ended so I listend threw it. Maybe I'll get the next parts in printing but I won't endure this voice again... (Unfortunately I have to give at least one star for the reader even I think there should be given none.)

Not the most original of stories

I agree with the other reviewer that the readers attempt at a British accent is truly horrible. Most of the characters are given what sounds like a south London accent (with a lot of American mixed in) although in the story they have spent decades in Wales.

The story itself is slow and predictable with a lot of inspiration drawn from Harry Potter. I was hoping for something more original.

Gute Geschichte, Sprecher ok

Die Geschichte ist spannend, voller Überraschungen und macht Spaß zuzuhören. Diese ist natürlich ein Kinder-/Jugendbuch und daher vielleicht nicht für etwas. Was mir nicht gefallen hat war die übertrieben "deutliche" Aussprache des Sprechers bei wörtlicher Rede. Mag am britischen Akzent liegen, aber dieses dauerhaft nasale nervt einfach nur. Während der Erzählungen ist es ok, aber mit einem anderen Sprecher wären es 5 Sterne geworden.

Good Story but the Narrator not so

The Story is good, honestly, It hasn't invented the wheel anew but honestly in this days, what does? And it's not important for a good Story, important is that it's fresh, Interesting, a solid story, good characters and still makes you want to read it even when you don't agree with the main character. So yes, the Book is good, it made me laugh and angry and still I couldn't stop listening/reading it. I have the hard copy at home so while listening to it also read it. So why do I give it 3 Stars only, well... it's the narrator. I would have been ok it he just changed the voice according to the characters but the accents was a bit much. just no thanks. If an American can't reproduce a convincing English/welsh/irish or any accent from europe then please just don't.

For those who like phantasy

Not my genre after all. I was not expecting a phantasy story of this extent.

The storyline appealed to me, however, I found the beginning extremely boring. The fake British accent of the speaker was not helping.

Perhaps a book for children and teenagers, but I as an adult did not enjoy it.
