The Peculiar Little Things

This book is peculiar. But in the best sort of way. I put it down and dream of the magical world it has created and can't wait to pick it back up. It's written with an autobiographical voice that makes even the most fantastic events seem like fact. And I cannot get enough of it. I love the interspersing of strange vintage photos throughout the book. It adds to the mystique of the story and while usually I like my imagination to have free reign, I like the guiding quality the photos give to how I picture the characters and story. It gives a sense of credibility.

I definitely enjoyed this.
Peculiar? Yes.
Well-written literature? Double yes.
