I'm reading Miss Peregrine's myself right now; just finished chapter 9. In some ways, it's *less* childish than I expected. The language is wonderful, but sort of dense. Given the cover photo, I expected it to be more girl-centered. The adjustment has been a bit of a slog.

I'm enjoying it, mind you, but not in the same way that I expected to.

See, I had heard the premise of the book as a concept novel that revolved around found photographs, so I was expecting something a bit pretentious and arty, but it's a very straightforward story. And the language is actually way less dense and more direct than I was expecting...but I also just finished Feed which is incredibly highly stylized. So it might be relative.

Also, it has way more of a linear plot than I expected.
