Comments The Annotated Peter Pan

  1. 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 like him [...]

  2. 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 But to be ho [...]

  3. 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 [...]

  4. 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 of the novel I [...]

  5. 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not that dissimilar, though it s a fair bit brutal that the cartoons and having been published in 1911 it s 100 years out of date when it comes to Native Americans The first thing to note is that it s not just the Never Land that has a surreal, imaginary feel to it The Darlings s ho [...]

  6. 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 boys must take a n [...]

  7. 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, that s who One out [...]

  8. I can t believe I ve never actually read Peter Pan until now I d seen the Disney version, but this is both charming and 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 boys from Lor [...]

  9. 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 say ab [...]

  10. 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 there was too mu [...]

  11. 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 genuinely the one in th [...]

  12. 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 Bell.9 It was [...]

  13. 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 heart [...]

  14. 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 original Pe [...]

  15. 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, the characters [...]

  16. 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

  17. 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, and so I figured it [...]

  18. 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 Peter in everybody We ca [...]

  19. 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 sweet im [...]

  20. Firstly, let me make it clear that there is actually 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 set of stories in which Pe [...]

  21. 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 know the [...]

  22. 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.

  23. 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 spectacula [...]

  24. 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 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, Hook, Peter, Wen [...]

  25. 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 violent.While this is technically true, much of the somber tone Brom noticed was reading between the lines in ways that many younger readers will either not [...]

  26. 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 2003 1380 39 964596130 1381 208 9643056686 20 1381 12 [...]

  27. 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 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 that between re [...]

  28. 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 beautiful [...]
