When i first got this book, I wasn't sure if I would like or not, sense I thought of it as nothing more than a child's story. Man, was I wrong. There is a lot of fantasy in it, for sure, but a lot of the things in it would only make sense to older readers. J.M. Barrie was an incredible author, no doubt about it. When he wrote about things that were totally not and could not be reality, it seemed as if that very thing could be a reality someway. He takes you to another land, and in a way, you can really feel like your flying around Wendy's room, and going to Neverland, itself! I haven't been able to put this down. I'm sure you'll love it, as well. I totally recommend this book!
i am a 11 year old girl and I read this wonderful book. I enjoyed it very much but only recomend it for ages 10+. I cried at the end of happiness. A very deep book for children and much more education than most children books.It was also more touching and emotional . most books, even good books are not as worth buying as this one. I hope you have found this review useful and I would very highly recommend this book.
I should rate J. M. Barrie? I think not. My favorite fairy tale, although thoroughly immersed in and reflecting the accepted role models of the early 20th century. There is the simpering Wendy who is has over the years changed from being viewed as a sweet heroine to a weak sister, especially in comparison to the fairy, Tinker Bell. Tink, once thought of as sassy and selfish, is now viewed as a role model of independence and strength. Which brings us to the forever careless and arrogant Peter Pan himself -- the doted upon bad boy (by both Wendy and Tink). One can now understand Captain Hook's obsession with putting Peter in his place. Always a delight to read, but now, I must check my social consciousness at the door in order to do so in the same manner I did as a girl or, as one of Peter's feared and despised grown ups, remember that it is an interesting, entertaining and slightly distorted reflection of early 20th Century England.
