Lost Boy | Christina Henry

Mehso-so

The premise was promising, but the execution was spotty. An origin story in which Hook was the original Lost Boy? Sounds wicked awesome! My issues stemmed largely from the fact the author makes Peter Pan a complete sociopath from the start. There is no subtlety here, no complex, interesting characters. You‘re just served a huge bowl of “PETER IS SO EVIL” the entire time. Worst, it wasn‘t really any fun (now I sound like Peter 😂).

wanderinglynn I agree with your review. I didn‘t care for this book either. 1w
TheAromaofBooks Always sad when a book doesn't live up to an intriguing premise! 1w
JoeMo @wanderinglynn it‘s nice to know someone else agrees….it‘s had mostly rave reviews. 1w
Bookzombie I enjoyed the other two I read by Henry, but I‘m not a big Peter Pan fan. Maybe that would make it work for me though. 😆 1w

Peter Pan | J M Barrie

Though the story is fun & I did enjoy reading it, this book is definitely a product of its time. The misogyny & race content did not age well & does detract from the story. Information about Barrie's life & the story behind the book is touching, heart-breaking & gives the book a bit more of an endearing quality. A good fairytale despite its downfalls. Worth the read for me, but not at the top of my list for a current middle grade recommendation.

Tiger Lily | Jodi Lynn Anderson

In this clever retelling of Peter Pan from Tinker Bell‘s perspective, we learn about Tiger Lily‘s background, life, and her role in the story of the Lost Boys. In this version, she and Peter are teenagers, trying to figure out love and loss and I thought it was well done. Good in #audio though I found the narrator‘s voice a little annoying at first.

I loved this book. I did find it a little slow paced sometimes. However, I loved the characters and the story.Great book.

11-1-22: My 109th finished book of 2022! A fascinating take on the Peter Pan story. Holly Darling, a scientist, is the granddaughter of Wendy, from the Peter Pan story. She owns a successful skin care company in NYC. When her invalid daughter goes missing, she takes her son Jack to England to search for her. I don‘t want to give too many specifics because the author really worked in all the Pan characters so well.

GidgetsTreasures75 I wanted more from the ending, a more front row seat to the final action but other than that I really enjoyed this story. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️📖#️⃣1️⃣0️⃣9️⃣ (edited) 4w
