NetGalley and Berkley Publishing for a free advance reader s copy of this book Reminder the short quotations I cited in this review may vary in the final published version okay wow i have no idea whats happened because everything i know about the story of peter pan now feels like a massive lie i feel like im in some sort of shock as far as i am now concerned, this reimagining is the only true version of events.i think ive always romanticised peter and his lost boys but when i read the original story last year, i found peter to be quite childish that was my first turning point and now this cruel and violent tale has only confirmed what i feared that peter i okay wow i have no idea whats happened because everything i know about the story of peter pan now feels like a massive lie i feel

story last year, i found peter to be quite childish that was my first turning point and now this cruel and violent tale has only confirmed what i feared that peter is undeniably selfish i also feel like the brutality of this story is somewhat necessary to emphasise with a character like jamie, a character that we have all come to know as a villain so to see his origins and understand how he came to be the way he is is really important i also want to praise CH for taking dark story and filling it with radiant writing my goodness, there are some sentences that read like pure poetry i am so i love with her writing style and how she told this story its definitely a highlight for me this book has been so muchthan i expected it to be 4.5 stars oooh, goodreads choice awards semifinalist for best horror what will happen there are so very many enthusiastic superfans of Peter Pan out there, and so very many retellings and variations of the story have been published to entice these superfans and before we go any further, let me out myself i am not one of them.i don t dislike Peter Pan, but my only exposure to the story has been through the disney filter, and i was never really keen on any

Sleeping Beauty snooore so, while i saw the cartoon, and i read the little disney picture books about peter pan, i was never really driven to seek out the original, which i expect, given what i know about the disnification of other stories, is very different from its source material.all of that is to say that even though there are likely many references and allusions here that i didn t catch or understand the full significance of that will no doubt delight you superfans, i still really enjoyed this book i m fond of the villains redeemed genre that gregory maguire popularized and to which so many other authors have made offerings, and it s amazing to have such a wealth of retellings of beloved stories to satisfy readers cravings to revisit their favorite characters, no matter what shape the retelling takes, or how successful it is as a book on its own i am myself a superfan of Wuthering Heights, and will read any and all retellings, even if they are atrocious as many of them are.but fear not, peter pan kids, this one is a million miles away from atrocious which is not surprising, considering how popular this author s Alice in Wonderland retellings are, both of which were bought excitedly by me, only to sit unread on my shelves, because we have already established that i am the worst.but i read this one, so ppbblltt and it is such a fun, bloody ride here we have jamie, the future captain hook, and the first boy peter chose to join him in his world of adventures and eternal youth and endless irresponsibility since then, jamie has been peter s right hand man boy, his first and most special friend, and has witnessed the arrival of so many other chosen boys over the years and he has also been responsible for burying them because fine print eternal youth is not the same thing as immortality and on peter s island of fun and gleeful romping, there are also pirates and crocodiles and the many eyed and illnesses and the battles and while one of the most appealing characteristics of boyhood is the freedom from thinking about the future, or consequences, or anything other than what the next adventure will be, jamie has started to feel the weight of his actual years, and is troubled by peter s short memory when it comes to all of the unnecessary lives lost to dangers sought out for no other reason than a lark, an adventure, a game which simmering disquiet is already beginning to complicate their friendship and is made worse when peter brings back a boy who is way too young for peter s rough and tumble ways, and jamie feels responsible for protecting him from the many dangers of the island, not the least of which is peter s easily bored carelessness, jealousy, and inherent lack of remorse.it s a really interesting dynamic, as jamie assumes the parental presence lacking in these boys lives even before they were abducted, and peter is just collecting temporary playmates, like a kid with a jar full of frogs who forgets to punch airholes in the lid it s a clever twist, a great character study, and did i mention all the carnage it s like Lord of the Flies with a much higher body count i am very eager to finally grab those two alice books from my shelf, as soon as the mighty stack of promises allows.come to my blog Once you come here you can never leave Nobody leaves Nobody goes home This is home now What a brutal retelling This is the

they will never grow up Every once in a while, Peter goes to the other place and brings backboys to play with,boys to taunt the pirates and swim with the mermaids and play battle But Jamie doesn t see Peter s real side The side that doesn t mind putting the boys lives in danger, the side that doesn t care when the boys get killed Because after all, that s no fun Bit by bit Jamie sees Peter s true colours, and when Peter brings back little Charlie, a boy far too small for their games, Jamie makes it his mission to protect him There are plenty of new twists brought to this well known tale There are the many eyed creatures who live on the island and are feared by the boys As long as Peter is having fun, it doesn t matter who gets hurt in the process, and when things turn deadly Jamie suddenly realises Peter doesn t love them at all A gruesome retelling, with plenty of gore and disturbing scenes, I was gripped A fantastic revamp to an old story and I will definitely be readingof Christina Henry s booksPeter didn t care about obstacles, even if they were shaped liked people They were only things to be jumped over, to be knocked down You didn t care about them
