la fine di questa trilogia.un libro pieno di avventura per questi ragazzi speciali. un nuovo inizio per tutti. :) una trilogia davvero bella. consigliatissima ( )

I absolutely loved this book just like the other two. This time around Jacob and Emma go through a lot to try to save their friends. They meet a lot more stranger people, both friends and foes. Jacob finally learns to control the Hallows (which was pretty freakin' cool!). Happy ending? You betcha! Although Mr. Riggs tried to finish the series with the ending... the next book is supposed to be coming out soon! Looking forward to reading the next one! ( )

I overall enjoyed this conclusion to the series, but I wished there had been more done with the connection between our protagonist and his enemies. A lot of stuff is brought up, but I feel like it all gets dropped before the end. Otherwise, a satisfying and appropriate ending. ( )

So sad it's over. Love the "peculiar" characters in this series. Really interesting and fun series! ( )

So,the third installment of Ransom Rigg's trilogy of Miss Peregrine and her Peculiar Children was hands-down the best. Our favourite, wonderful, peculiar children encounter more peculiars, more threats, all leading to a spectacular closure. I won't say much (ever fearful that I will spoil half of the plot...) but the book is an utter roller-coaster. Literally. The action is almost frantic, and perhaps, this is one of the (extremely few) problems of the plot. The new characters introduced are very interesting -peculiar or not- and the new set of photos is exquisite. Also, Miss Peregrine is a real kick-ass heroine in this one (and I really hate this expression, but it is the only suitable for her).

I had only one small nitpicking about the end.It felt too lovey-dovey, too ''they lived happily ever - after, but that is just my taste. No need to pay it attention;)

Ransom Riggs has created a fabulous universe, bleak and hopeful and wonderful in all its peculiarity. I think we are looking at a future classic in the history of the Fantasy and Gothic genre.I mightily enjoyed every page of it.

P.S. I will start the ''Tales of the Peculiars'' soon, because I don't want to abandon the world of the loops and ymbrynes just yet.

P.S. 2 Can we have a book about Sharon's adventures, please? ( )
