The bad guy of the novel is not that bad after all? I like James Uncino too it is obvious that the question was asked by the blood of my blood. Actually, it is the death of a central character that shakes the mind of children, a character they started to know and whose presence they are used to.
And punctually the tremendous question arrives: "Why do we have to die? I buy time and go further. I think that one of the things that terrorizes more a child is to stay without their loved ones. The strenght and especially the desire to break away from the family is perhaps the best indicator of the lost childhood.
Do they? There is a kite, Peter fastens Wendy to it and it carries her away. Peter looks out bravely and says 'to die will be an awfully big adventure.
I smile and ask, "Do you guys want another chapter? View all 9 comments.

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 I can't believe I've never actually read Peter Pan until now. 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. View all 18 comments. Peter Pan, J. Barrie Peter Pan is a fictional character created by Scottish novelist and playwright J.

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.
Los personajes son soberbios y hasta crueles. Eso no lo esperaba. Hay que destacar a la perra Nana y Campanilla que fueron lo mejor del libro. View 2 comments. Mar 11, James rated it really liked it Shelves: Before I get into the review 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 The Before I get into the review There is so much I could say about this book.
I could write a formal review. I could compare the story to the TV and film adaptions. I could cover the cartoons. So dark But that said, to me, it's a children's tale with a huge primary lesson: We never want to grow up, but we have to And that's what I'll focus on.
This book must be read to children a few times over the years. I'd start first when they are about 4 or 5, and then show the cartoon versions. Let them absorb it and think about it.
And then again when they are 7 or 8, helping them understand what it means to grow up. And then again when they are about 12 or It's a lesson that must be taught young. Growing up is scary. But so is not growing up. There's a fine balance between finding the time to be free and open, enjoying life and staying away from one's fears.
But you must also learn what is necessary to become a good, solid and functioning citizen of the society. What I love about this story is the amount of interpretations you can absorb from the story, the characters, the setting and the action. Just when you think you've got them all down, another view point comes into play -- and you have to re-think what the moral purpose of the book is about.
Or did Barrie intend it to just be a fun trip for kids I'm not so sure we'll ever know! About Me For those new to me or my reviews I read A LOT. I write A LOT.

Jun 04, Brad rated it did not like it Shelves: I am not sure I can see why Peter Pan is such a beloved "classic.
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 I am not sure I can see why Peter Pan is such a beloved "classic.
Common Sense says
Wendy drove me crazy; Peter grew increasingly annoying; Hook bored me stiff; there was too much violence; Barrie's narrative interjections grew to be too intrusive; and I generally felt a distinct lack of fun. About the only thing I liked about the book, besides it ending, was Tinkerbell.
Her snooty fairy arrogance always made me smile. I know I will incur the wrath of many when I say this, but I actually prefer the Disney version. Walt brought some real joy to the story, and while I will never read Peter Pan again, I will watch the movie.
Probably tomorrow. If there wasn't a successful play of Pan I would put the longevity of Barrie's story on the head of Disney. Too bad I can't, but then he's been blamed for enough over the years, hasn't he?

And coming from his point of view, it is Peter who is genuinely the one in the wrong: Hook was wronged by his greatest friend when he was a child and forced into a role that is misunderstood. The book made me consider this in a new light. Under the surface of the writing there could be much more to the situation. And this made me appreciate the writing here a little bit more. It will never be something I consider great, but something I feel that could have been.
Time is chasing after all of us. 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 original Peter is just an joyous on some levels - the sense of magic and nostalgia is potent - but Barrie's more sophisticated and original story does more than entertain on a simple level - it makes the reader thing and wonder.
Is there a joy in staying young forever, free of adult responsibility and ruling responsibilities?
Is there a tragedy in staying young forever and never growing? Also yes. The character of Peter is fascinating. He's a child who likes to live carefree and is drawn to that particular nursery on the second floor for whatever reason. Through it he sees Wendy, an inspiration for a mother he doesn't know and claims he doesn't want. He invites her - and she invites her brothers - on a magical ride through the night into a strange land befit with pirates, ticking crocodiles, feisty fairies, and mermaids.
He doesn't value life because he can't comprehend it. The author points out as a narrator in the story that he forgets stuff all the time, and may bore of the game of saving the boys as they learn to fly and let them drown simply because he may lose interest. He forgets all those special to him, including the main characters of the story, as he lets himself be tugged by adventure alone and no strong ties to reality and the living, evolving people.
I can see the inspiration for the magical and fertile imagination of children, but I wonder too on the thoughts of children never growing up and forgetting the realities of life through death - the author's brother was tragically killed in an accident at the age of 13, which could leave an impression of a child leaving to fly away and abandon family while they never age.
You can have anything in life if you will sacrifice everything else for it. He is capable of sympathy but shrugs it aside in his war against Peter because of the boy's arrogant, devil-may-care attitude. I guess I understand the Peter Pan and Hook rivalry more when Peter casually mentions they kill pirates for sport while they're sleeping Tink is awesome - she goes around in the story mainly saying, "You silly ass", to Peter.
It cracked me up. The author focused a good bit on the mother, Mrs. Darling, too, and it seemed to be because of a strong mother theme through the story, first in her and then in Wendy.
Indeed the father is shown as ineffective and rather whiny, although the author points out in the end that Mrs. Darling is now dead and "long-forgotten. Barrie clearly loved children. When he died in , he left the copyright of Peter Pan to a children's hospital in London, which has continued to financially benefit from royalties.
He got the inspiration for the story through meeting and getting close to a family with some young boys, and he took guardianship of the children to the parent's wishes when they passed away. Sadly, the children he adopted also perished later - one in war and one in drowning.
The one survivor, Peter, outlived Barry but committed suicide by jumping in front of a train in There is magic and joy in living for the present moment and letting go of the future, but there is no foundation.
The sands of time dissolve under the feet of everyone except Peter Pan. In the end he lives on and rewards himself with lack of aging, but he forgets all and is forgotten by everyone. It is more of a magical moment that can't last. When the young die, they don't have to grow and face adulthood; they get to live with the magic of childhood forever in the memories of all who knew them when they were alive.

Level 1: Disney Peter Pan
It's so important to me and I don't even know why. Walt Disney, I've always loved you, but I'm never touching merch that reflects your version of this story. Nothing can compare. I'm so happy I read the original story. View all 3 comments. Aug 26, Andrew rated it really liked it Shelves: 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 I was surprised by this book in many good ways. Barrie deems a key attribute to being a child as being heartless. All of this raises many points for potential argument and discussion and this is why this book so impressed me.
Because I am still thinking about it. It is interesting to think that Barrie was mostly a playwright because I highly enjoyed the playful narrative voice he employed and would mark it as one of my key enjoyments for the book.
I love a remarkable narrative voice, though I can't say it is entirely unique. However I may be judging it by its followers as opposed to its peers or master.
Regardless, I was entertained and thus I applaud.
It should be noted that the sensibilities of this book are not those of today's children entertainment. Most notably, Barrie does not sidestep the fact that the lost boys actively seek to kill pirates. This goes back again to one of my earlier comments, but it may seriously affect the reader. This could bring up many discussions of its own: However if a parent is looking for a book to read to their child, I just figured this should be brought up.
As an aside: After reading this book I can totally see the interpretation he was going with. It makes for a fun idea. He would have obviously had to constructed the means of the Adversary differently, but Pan as a villain is not unbelievable after this book. 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 was my duty to pick this up. But it wasn't completely what I imagined. The book wasn't as exciting, the characters not as likeable as I thought.

It was not exactly the kind of fairytale I had in mind. Still, it's a classic, and a beautiful one, too. Find more of my books on Instagram 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.

While Maimie wants to stay in the Gardens with Peter, she comes to realise that her mother is so worried that she must return to her. Maimie promises to always remember Peter and goes back to her mother. When Maimie grows up, she continues to think of Peter, dedicating presents and letters to him.
To remember Maimie, Peter rides the imaginary goat that Maimie created for him. She is considered to be the literary predecessor of Wendy Darling. Wendy is hinted to have romantic feelings for Peter, but cannot be with him because of his inability to love back. In the film Peter Pan , the feeling is mutual.
Captain Hook can only take away Peter's ability to fly by thoughts of Wendy leaving him, growing up, and replacing him with a husband.
Wendy saves Peter by giving him her hidden kiss signifying he is her true love ; this gives him the will to live.
In the movie Hook , an older Wendy implies that she used to and perhaps, still does have feelings for Peter, saying that she was shocked that he did not prevent her wedding day. In the sequel to the Disney film, Return to Neverland , Peter and a grown-up Wendy are briefly, but happily, reunited after many years and continue to show feelings for each other. In the original novel, Peter later befriends Wendy's daughter Jane and her subsequent daughter Margaret , and it is implied that this pattern will go on forever.
From time to time Peter visits the real world, and befriends children. Wendy Darling, whom he recruited to be his "mother", is the most significant of them; he also brings her brothers John and Michael to Neverland at her request.
It is mentioned that Wendy was the only girl who captured his attention. John, the older brother of the Darlings, proves to be extremely mature for his age. He becomes fascinated with piracy and imitates Captain Hook while playing at home with his siblings. Not only sophisticated, John is also courageous and smart. Peter typically tasks John with the responsibility of directing the Lost Boys when Peter is absent. Michael, the youngest of the Darlings, is convinced that Peter Pan is a real person after hearing Wendy's passionate narratives about him.
During nursery games, it's Michael who plays the role of Peter Pan whom he looks up to. The parents of Wendy, John and Michael. Mrs Darling is named after Mary Ansell, Barrie's wife. Barrie refers to her as "a princess in her own right", and she is often described as such. She is kidnapped by the pirates and left to die on Marooners' Rock, but is rescued by Peter. It is hinted later that she may have romantic feelings for Peter but he does not return them, as he is completely oblivious of other people's feelings.
In the Disney film, Tiger Lily shows her gratitude by performing a dance for Peter and kissing him. The kiss makes him turn bright red, and makes Wendy jealous of Tiger Lily.
Tinker Bell is a common fairy who is Peter Pan's best friend and often jealously protective of him. She is the friend who helps him in his escapades. Her extreme loyalty and dedication to Peter is everlasting.
The Lost Boys is a band of boys who were lost by their parents after they "fall out of their perambulators" and came to live in Neverland. In Barrie's novel Peter and Wendy but not the original play Peter Pan , it is stated that Peter "thins them out" when they start to grow up. This is never fully explained, but it is implied that he either kills them or banishes them.
In the song "I Won't Grow Up" from the musical , the boys sing "I will stay a boy forever" to which Peter replies "and be banished if I don't". In Peter Pan in Scarlet , the official sequel to Barrie's Peter and Wendy , what happens to the Lost Boys when they begin to grow up is revealed when Slightly starts to grow older, as Peter banishes him to Nowhereland which basically means that he and all his allies will ignore the banished person's existence , the home of all the Long Lost Boys whom Peter has banished in times past.
After Peter Pan cut off Captain Hook's hand in a fight and threw it into the sea, the crocodile swallowed it and got a taste for Hook. It also swallowed a ticking clock, which alerts Hook of its presence. Captain Hook, whose right hand was cut off in a duel, is Peter Pan's arch-enemy.
Hook's crew, including Smee and Starkey, also consider him a foe. Captain Hook's two principal fears are the sight of his own blood which is supposedly an unnatural colour and one crocodile.
His name plays on the iron hook that replaced his hand cut off by Peter Pan and eaten by a saltwater crocodile , which continues to pursue Hook. In the animated film , Hook seeks revenge on Peter Pan for having fed the crocodile his hand, and refuses to leave Neverland without satisfaction. After promising Tinker Bell 'not to lay a finger or a hook on Peter Pan', he lays a bomb in Peter's hideout. At the conclusion of the film, Hook is chased by the crocodile into the distance.
Walt Disney insisted on keeping Hook alive, as he said: Smee is Captain Hook 's boatswain "bo'sun" and right-hand man in J. Barrie 's play Peter Pan and the novel Peter and Wendy. Unlike the other pirates, Smee is often clumsy and incapable of capturing any of the Lost Boys.
Barrie commissioned a statue of Peter Pan by sculptor George Frampton which was erected overnight in Kensington Gardens on 30 April as a May Day surprise to the children of London.
