Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children: The Book Series vs. The Movie
The young adult novel, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, by Ransom Riggs, was released in and came out as a movie this year in September. I hadn't heard about this story until I saw the trailer for it at the movie theatre and decided I really wanted to read the book before I saw the movie. The thing I love about this book is it's use of antique looking photographs. The author, Ransom Rigg's first intention was to make a picture book out of photographs that he had collected because he is a photograph collector. But instead, with advice from an editor, he decided to make it a novel based on the photographs. Throughout the novel, readers follow the main character, Jacob's, story and incorporating the pictures as Jacob comes across them in the story.
It's always a risk when a beloved book gets a big-screen adaptation, but fans of Ransom Riggs' Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children have nothing to fear. The movie version of the bestseller, about a teenage boy who uncovers a children's home in which the residents all have supernatural powers, holds up to the book, with director Tim Burton and writer Jane Goldman making sure to stick close to Riggs' much-loved story. Yet that doesn't mean that there aren't differences between the Miss Peregrine 's movie and the book , of course. Like any book-to-film adaptation, Burton's movie isn't an exact replica of the novel, and it includes a few notable changes that sharp-eyed fans will certainly spot when they head to the theaters. Spoilers ahead!
I found that the book was better than the movie because the movie had different characters and different plot and it was not as deep and intense as the book. Hack no!! Like come on, I will not talk about the switching abilities between Emma and Olivia but the ending ugh wth was that?!! I mean I know Tim Burton doesn't like making a sequel but the ending was just too rush, the fighting part was just boring. And what was the "regeneration" of Jacob's grandfather? View all 6 comments.

It makes sense; the most prominent movie-going demographic, according to the MPAA Theatrical Statistics Summary , are young people ages 12 to Young adults who are loyal to a franchise basically guarantee the studio an audience for their film, meaning easy revenue.
There are always issues when translating a popular novel to the big screen, but Tim Burton was seemingly the perfect director to accomplish this feat. While Burton is surely one of the only directors who could possibly bring such a magical, yet dark tale to life, it may have fallen short of expectations. With a wildly popular book such as this, it is impossible to please every fan and still leave room for the creativity of the director. The actor chosen for this role, Asa Butterfield, gave off the perfect boyish innocence, while still being able to encompass the courage and ferocity that made readers fall in love with Jake. The other characters were casted similarly to their descriptions in the book, except for a few minor changes in age.
