Earlier this year I read Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs and I quite enjoyed it. So, when I heard they were adapting it to a film I knew I had to see it. However, the trailer alone had already filled me with quite a bit of doubt. Unfortunately, I’m one of those moviegoers who if I’ve read the book previously can’t help but mentally notice all the differences, and sometimes outwardly display my displeasure at the changes. So, when I saw this I made sure to go with a group of friends who had all read the book, so we could all air our grievances together.
This review is going to be spoiler heavy, so please don’t read any further if you have not read the book or seen the movie.
