Peter Pan first flew across a London stage in 1904, overwhelming audiences with its tale of a magical boy who never grows up, who lures young Wendy and her brothers to Neverland, where they meet pirates, Indians, fairies, and the Lost Boys. J. M. Barrie revised and expanded the story and published it as this novel. For children, it remains a marvelous mix of fantasy and adventure, featuring unique, imaginative characters who frisk and frolic in an enchanting land.

For adults, the story of Peter and the Lost Boys works on a much deeper level, speaking to them about the inevitable loss of childhood and the ability “to fly.” The climactic duel between Peter Pan and Captain Hook is both a swashbuckling romp and a moving metaphor for the complex, poignant struggle between innocent but irresponsible youth and tainted but dependable maturity.

Listener Opinions

    " Funny, weird, sarcastic -- I had no idea this book would be so enjoyable to read. Hook is downright nasty and the whole thing about Hook having gone to a great school where he was taught that good form is everything but you can only have good form when you're not aware of having good form because it's bad form to be aware of having good form is hilarious. I guess I vaguely thought that the novel Peter Pan would be just as sappy as those kids' shows with some woman pretending to be a boy on a wire. I was wrong. "

    " This is one of those childhood-scarring books... illustrated in 3D using the world's most creepy AS dolls. *shudders* "

    " Peter Pan was my favorite book when I was a little kid. I made my mom read the book to me endless times, and when I learned to read, I read it, when my little brother was born (i was 8) I would read it to him and he loved it too. It's still a fond memory for us both, even though he's 13 now and I am 21. The perfect book for an adventurous little kid. "
