A most peculiar read, indeed.
What intrigued me most was the fact that the photos used in the book were not fabricated, but they are actually real-life photos, by real-life photographers!
Made me wonder which came first – the story or the pictures?
Either way, Ransom Riggs did a really good job of creating a world of suspense and mystery, so much so that I actually enjoyed the buildup more than the climax itself.
The sequel came out this year. Will be waiting to read it.
