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 of the novel I did not investigate the reason for her grudge Probably she didn t like the fact that Peter doesn t want to grow Not strange, when you are a child usually you want to grow because several tings are forbidden, etc It is only when you realize that those years are forever lost that you regret for the lost childhood Everything normal.
2 But why Hook have to die My daughter almost burst into tears in all children, except one, grow upperhaps i could call it a quarter life crisis, but i am definitely experiencing a little bit of peter pan syndrome lately and this story is that wonderful adventure through childhood nostalgia that i am desperately needing a bit old fashioned, for sure, but this so perfectly captures what it means to be a child to long for grand adventures, comprehending how belief alone can allow you fly, and how wishing on dreams will always be the greatest pastime so when i get in those deep moments of adulthood, where i forget what it means to be a child, i know i can always head to the second star to the right and straight on til morning and there, peter pan and the lost boys will be waiting for me 4 stars 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is not that dissimilar, though it s a fair bitbrutal that the cartoons and having been published in 1911 it s 100 years out of date when it comes to Native Americans The first thing to note is that it s not just the Never Land that has a surreal, imaginary feel to it The Darlings s home life is rather odd, with a dog acting as nursemaid to the three little Darlings, performing such tasks as getting them dressed, bathing them, and giving them medicineI liked the imagination on display where Peter Pan s shadow is torn off as he leaves in a hurry and the children s mother rolls it up and stores it in a drawer Later Wendy sews it back on.
The main difference is 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 cup of tea and I shall choose to bury my head in the sand and pretend this version does not exist The only reason I didn t DNF this was A I m trying my hardest to finish all my popsugar books if possible and B I try not to DNF books under 200 pages if possible Rant is over and now I ll move on to the next read ENGLISH Peter Pan ITALIANO All children, except one, grow up The incipit of Peter Pan of J.

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, that s who One out of 12 complete .
I can t believe I ve never actually read Peter Pan until now I d seen the Disney version, but this is bothcharming andsinister 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 boys from Lord of the Flies Near the end, it says that he nearly stabs Wendy s baby And he steals other children.
Of course, the moral of the story is that children need mothers It s just charming enough to get away with the moralising.
