      A story of a dead child and a mother who is missing him.Sir James Matthew Barrie (1860-1937), a Scottish, wrote this book in 1902 for an older brother, David (his mother's favorite) who died in an ice-skating accident the day before he turned 14. Thus, in his mother's mind, David always stayed as a young boy who would not grow up. J. M. Barrie, a middle-child and then only 6 years old, tried to assume David's place in his mother's heart by wearing the latter's clothes and speaking and sounding l [...]

      3.5 *All the world is made of faith, and trust, and pixie dust* Stars This truly is an odd book. There were plenty of disturbing, surprising WTF moments. I made the stupid mistake of reading some Peter Pan theories that really creeped me out. Things I'm scared of- The Wizard of Oz movie, clowns, praying mantis, John Travolta. Now I can add Peter Pan to my list. This book genuinely creeped me out. Yes there are bittersweet and endearing moments. The characters are compelling and well-developed. B [...]

      Oh boy. I'm not sure what to say other than I cannot think of one aspect I enjoyed about this book. I tend to gravitate toward dark, disturbing, and twisted stories (what does that say about me???), but this was just sad with no pay off. Each page felt like a chore to get through and I didn't even find the illustrations redeeming. I'm clearly in the minority, but I may have possibly been bit by the old "heard the story so many times that the original feels like a rip off" bug. Definitely not my [...]

      ENGLISH (Peter Pan) / ITALIANO«All children, except one, grow up.»The incipit of Peter Pan of J.M. Barrie is the perfect synthesis of the book. I will try to make the point using as inspiration the words of a child, namely three phrases from my daughter Arianna while in the evening she was listening in her bed my reading of Peter Pan (seventeen chapters read on as many nights with the emphasis of a talented narrator):1 - "Peter Pan is a bad guy" Yes, my daughter did not like to the protagonist [...]

      I read this to Celyn. It's a short book. Google tells me 47,000 words but it felt shorter than that.Many of us know the story second hand through cartoons, Hollywood adaptations, and picture-books. The original item is not that dissimilar, though it's a fair bit more brutal that the cartoons and having been published in 1911 it's 100 years out of date when it comes to Native Americans!The first thing to note is that it's not just the Never-Land that has a surreal, imaginary feel to it. The Darli [...]

      My children wanted to do our read aloud outside this evening. So we went on the patio and I began reading "Peter Pan." I read about how the mermaids would play with the bubbles, but when the children would come they would all disappear, but they would secretly watch. Pretty soon I hear over the fence our 11 year old neighbor boy say, "Is that Peter Pan?" "Yes," I say, "Would you like to come listen?" "I've been listening from here," he says. So I go on and read about Wendy's rule that all the bo [...]

      Read for school*Really enjoyed this!!

    8. Val ⚓️ ShamelessBitchySKANKY ⚓️ Steamy Reads says:

      Not gonna lie, I had to push myself to get through this.I just didn’t find it enjoyable in the slightest, which makes me feel like a loser since it’s such a beloved children’s classic.But at least I’m an honest loser?I didn’t really like Peter.Wendy annoyed me.And the humor and tone just fell flat for me.But, on the plus side, at least I can count this as my first completed classic for the year. This was supposed to be my January read and it’s now Februarybut who’s counting.Me, tha [...]

    9. Nikki says:

      I can't believe I've never actually read Peter Pan until now. I'd seen the Disney version, but this is both more charming and more sinister than that. There are lots of sweet little details, like mothers tidying up their children's thoughts, and the kiss on the corner of Mrs Darling's mouth. But Peter is a monstrous sort of figure when you get past the romance of Neverland. He's a wild boy, selfish and cocky. Instead of being a kind of example of innocent childhood, he almost brings to mind the [...]

    10. James says:

      Before I get into the review it took me forever to go through all the editions of Peter Pan listed on . While I suppose it's not too important to get the right version, I was shocked at how many there were, as well as that this was a longer series with multiple books. I guess I always knew that, but when I read it, it was just the Peter Pan book, which I believe was the third in the series. I could be wrong nonetheless wow and it's review time and let's do some soaringThere is so much I could sa [...]

    11. Brad says:

      I am not sure I can see why Peter Pan is such a beloved "classic." J.M. Barrie's story of the boy who wouldn't grow up just didn't reach me. And I read it aloud to 4 year old boy-girl twins.Oh, they enjoyed it, and I may have bred a love for the story in them that will last (which could be exactly why the story has endured -- parental readings), but no matter how much they liked Peter Pan I could not see the appeal.Wendy drove me crazy; Peter grew increasingly annoying; Hook bored me stiff; ther [...]

    12. Bookdragon Sean says:

      I’ve never really thought much to Peter Pan. I read it when I was very small and again in my late teens, though each time it didn’t particularly interest me. Sure, it was entertaining enough but that’s about it. I’ve recently read Lost Boy by Christina Henry and the genius nature of her plot has made me reconsider the original work a little bit. She very cleverly tells the story from the perspective of Peter’s nemesis Hook. And coming from his point of view, it is Peter who is genuinel [...]

    13. Ariel says:

      INCREDIBLE! SO WEIRD AND GOOD.Things that are great:1) All of these tiny details that Barrie added in that just make everything feel really intricate.2) Peter Pan is the most bizarre and interesting characters ever.3) The whole concept of Neverland being fact of fiction? Fascinating.4) The parents. WOAH SO INTERESTING.5) I listened to an audiobook version while reading along which was read by Jim Dale and OMGSOGOOD.6) The magic.7) The pirates.8) Understanding why Tinker Bell is called Tinker Bel [...]

    15. Andrew says:

      I was surprised by this book in many good ways. I was expecting something that glorified the Child and its imagination, and perhaps cursed the unstoppable destruction of our Childinity. I was surprised to see this was not truly so. Barrie loves the Child, but he does not hide its foolishness, its selfishness, its ignorance. The Child in this is almost pre-moral. They have some understanding of villainy, but do not grasp the virtue of a hero. Barrie deems a key attribute to being a child as being [...]

    16. Erin ☕ *Proud Book Hoarder* says:

      “I suppose it's like the ticking crocodile, isn't it? Time is chasing after all of us.” Beautifully written, hauntingly nostalgic, and adventure filled, Peter Pan is not a story that can be forgotten and that has made itself live on in childhood literature since its conception.So many are familiar with the Disney version, a book and movie which highlights the fun and joyful adventures of youth as they escape a bedroom window and fly in the night to a hidden world rich with adventures. The or [...]

    17. Kai says:

      “To die will be an awfully big adventure.”I didn't love this book as much as I wanted to. Peter Pan's world is this magical, wonderful, dangerous place full of adventures. One of those places every child wants to visit, exactly like Wendy and her brothers. Just open a window and fly away.I read this book because 1. it's a classic and 2. because it's my friend's favourite book of all times. It was my duty to pick this up. But it wasn't completely what I imagined. The book wasn't as exciting, [...]

    18. Wendy Darling says:

      Of course in the end, Wendy let them fly away together. Our last glimpse of her shows her at the window, watching them receding into the sky until they were as small as stars.Reread in preparation for Neverland this coming weekend!

    19. Mary ~Ravager of Tomes~ says:

      Ever since I was a young girl, I've been obsessed with the musical performance of Peter Pan starring Cathy Rigby (which you can view here on YouTube.) I don't think I've ever seen Disney's adaption because my mother & friends could not convince me that any other version in existence was worth watching.As I've grown up (boooooo) I've really enjoyed the movie Hook, & didn't mind the concept behind the mini-series Neverland. However, nothing has ever stuck with me the way the musical did, a [...]

    20. Jean says:

      This edition of Peter Pan contains the text of J.M. Barrie’s 1911 novel, “Peter and Wendy”, which he wrote from his earlier play of 1904. The character of Peter Pan, the little boy who wouldn’t grow up, had already made an appearance in an earlier work by J.M. Barrie, “The Little White Bird” (1902). There continue to be many retellings of this magical story, and Peter is himself a timeless figure; one of the best-loved characters in children’s literature. There is maybe a little of [...]

    21. Steph says:

      Firstly, let me make it clear that there is actually more than one J M Barrie 'Peter Pan' story (something that I did not initially realise). There is 'Peter Pan and Wendy,' which is the story we are all familiar with (immortalised - inaccurately - by Disney); there is 'Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens,' which tells the story of him as a baby with the lost boys when he was originally abandoned, (which I have not yet read) and then 'The Little White Bird' (which I have not read either), but is a s [...]

    22. Jasmine says:

      Not until I heard this song, Ruth B's Lost Boy did I realize how much I miss this story. Peter Pan was and is and will always be my most favorite fairytale of all time because I used to watch its cartoons, movie adaptations, and read the story books when I was little. It's such beautiful memory I have and I even dreamt of him as my boyfriend(well, I didn't know what "book boyfriend" was at that time) and waited for him to appear at my windowsill or sneak in my room at night. Just all kinds of sw [...]

    23. Noelani says:

      This is my favorite book of all time. When you grow up with the "overly-nice" Disney version of the story, picking up this book for the first time can be quite a shock. The book will also shatter the image that most girls have of Tinkerbell but personally-I prefer the original. Johnny Corkscrew, Peter's idea of a kiss, sewing on a shadow, sifting through the thoughts of your children as they sleep So many things about this book are missed by those who never bother to pick it up because they "kno [...]

    24. Ahmad Sharabiani says:

      ‎Peter Pan, J.M. Barrie Peter Pan is a fictional character created by Scottish novelist and playwright J. M. Barrie. A free-spirited and mischievous young boy who can fly and never grows up, Peter Pan spends his never-ending childhood having adventures on the mythical island of Neverland as the leader of the Lost Boys, interacting with fairies, pirates, mermaids, Native Americans, and occasionally ordinary children from the world outside Neverland.تاریخ نخستین خوانش: بیستم [...]

    25. Sepani says:

      I haven't read Peter Pan before, until now and had to read it because of my next to-read book as it is a retelling of Peter Pan. While reading the book I felt boring so I left few sentences unread. I don't know exactly why I didn't enjoy the book, sometimes it may be because I was too late to read this book during my early teens.

    26. Janene says:

      This was such a treat! Three things: 1. It made me realize what a perfect Pan-type Peter I married, so many similarities, some that made me laugh out loud. 2. It made me want to look into my 4-yr-old's imaginitive eyes a little longer. 3. I also occasionally picked up my 20-month-old while sleeping just to rock and enjoy him for extra minutes. This book just so fully captures childhood and the problem of growing up, in a witty way. If you've never read it, really you must! The edition we own is [...]

    27. Yaz *The Reading Girl* says:

      "Dear Peter Pan,What I would give to fly away with you! And to go to Neverland. Love, Audrey""To die will be an awfully big adventure." When you hear the name Peter Pan and Wendy, what does it remind you of? Happiness, childhood, innocence, flying away, love, and so much more right?That's exactly what this book makes you feel. It is beautiful and magical.The writing is amazing and it is so easy to understand. It makes you feel like you are living in the book and you are either: the Lost Boys, Ho [...]

    28. Lyn says:

      A timeless children’s classic.I’ll concede that the biggest reason why I read this was because of Brom’s 2009 illustrated novel The Child Thief. In an afterward, Brom had said that he was struck by the disparity of the original 1911 work and the later Disney and Hollywood adaptions. Brom highlighted that Barrie’s original work was darker and more violent.While this is technically true, much of the somber tone Brom noticed was reading between the lines in ways that many younger readers wi [...]

    29. Vane J. says:

      “All children, except one, grow up”When I was a kid, I used to think Peter Pan was fantastic. He didn't grow and could do everything he wanted without parents scolding him. After some years I started to be more wary about him. I didn't like how reckless he was and how he lured little children out of their beds. That was my conception of him before starting this book. And indeed, he was a bit like that.You see, the Disney movie isn't really that far from the original story. The difference is [...]

    30. Marine says:

      All these years I've travelled far away from the Peter Pan phenomenon, from Disney to the numerous movies inspired by the novel (the only thing I remember is that great attraction in Disneyland Paris where you're surrounded by stars and you fly in the Jolly Roger - but I think I digress). I still don't understand how I could have avoided such a masterpiece at school, or how nobody ever told me before to put down my cartoons and go read something that important. Everything involved here is so bea [...]
