I finished Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children and didn't really enjoy it. The story itself was fairly interesting, but I didn't like the protagonist very much, I felt the prose was a little stilted, and the conceit with the photographs bothered me immensely, for some reason.
"And we are all told from the moment we open our eyes, that everyone is entitled to his or her opinion. Well, thatís horsepuckey, of course. We are not entitled to our opinions; we are entitled to our informed opinions. Without research, without background, without understanding, itís nothing. Itís just bibble-babble. Itís like a fart in a wind tunnel, folks." --Harlan Ellison
