What an amazing concept based the bizarre pictures and the people and story line. The pictures helped with the story as visual proof which I thought totally rocked.The element with the peculiar children was awesome i love reading about children with strange powers and abilities.
The mysterious element to the story and the beginning of the book was great but personally it lost all that mysterious element when the house was explained and the children, I did find the story line engaging because I was reading it any chance I got because I did want to know what happened to the children and Jacob. Ransom Riggs did an amazing job with the descriptive part of the story because I was seeing everything as i read I even dreamed about the story last night which I think is a great impact on a reader when they dream about the story that they just read.
Overall i did love the story line and i cant wait to read hollow city but i have to wait till September to read the library of souls because i have the other two in paperback and that's when that comes out in paperback in the uk.
