Book Reviews

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children

BEFORE the movie comes out (YES, THE MOVIE COMES OUT with Asa Butterfield and Eva Green), here’s to my  very very short review of the first book of the trilogy(?).

It’s peter pan slash x-men slash horror movie gone wrong.

It’s not scary. You want it to be scary? I’m sorry, this is not it. Definitely not this.  But what I love about it is the adventure. Yakob (I like how it sounds when I say it!) is in it for sure and I’m ultimately jealous.

I’m curious about the pictures too. They are peculiar, horrific and strange. You see, the pictures don’t reflect the attitudes of the children. Their portraits are scary as hell but when you read about them, they are all adorable little kids. Like Peter pan’s lost boys. Maybe because it’s an introductory story, we don’t truly experience what the children are capable of. They have their quirks and super powers.

Let’s not forget to mention the misplaced love story. I dig it actually, the poor, so poor ‘forever’ little girl Emma, ‘forever’ waiting for this person who was never coming back, who already became a father and then a grandfather and ultimately who died. But the circle completes actually with (yes, this is the misplaced part) Yakob. :O

As the adventure is yet to come, I’m putting 3 stars of it.  I truly hope that the 2nd book is better than this.

  1. Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
