  • Wonderful Retelling

    What a marvelous retelling of Peter Pan. The most extraordinary thing about this novel was the tone and voice of the novel. The third-person omniscient voice had such a beautiful tone, filled with nostalgia and warmth that it fills the reader with joy. It was so reminiscent of JM Barrie’s classic work and even captured some of the levity found in the movies. The tone works so well with the pacing of the novel to grab and captivate the reader. It is not a very fast-paced novel as it focuses on building up the new origins of Wendy Darling and the world she is in, so that tone is essential for the storytelling to keep the reader engaged. As far as character development goes, Wendy was exceptional. The author was able to capture Barrie’s essence of Wendy, that mature seriousness as well as that love of adventure that makes her such a great character. Wendy faces many hurdles in this novel, and everything together pushes her. As a woman, her dreams seem unattainable, and yet nothing breaks her spirit. Oh, the cleverness of these authors to make Wendy oh so very clever, it makes her such a joy to read and follow on this adventure. The way the authors also thought to bring in the other characters was quite ingenious. They fit into the story perfectly and balance each other out quite well. From Hook to John and Michael to Peter and Tinker Bell, these characters were developed so well and balance each other out wonderfully. There is such fun and powerful imagination that went into constructing and adapting these characters to this novel. The Wendy is a steadily paced novel with such a wonderful atmosphere to it as well as great character dynamics.

  • Inspiring and Fun!

    I’m not a huge Peter Pan fan, but I am so glad I picked this one up. It’s fun, inspiring, and adds a new spin on the classic tale and its characters. Wendy Darling is a bold, determined young woman with a heart full of adventure and dreams. She is inspiring and strong and someone I would genuinely want to follow. I loved her clever and kind demeanour. Other characters, like Hook, Peter, John, Michael, and Tinkerbell are given new roles or embellished upon. Even Nana the dog had some parts to play. There were more POV shifts than I expected and sometimes the narration style broke the immersion, but I was genuinely charmed bu the story and characters that I hardly minded. The story is filled with adventure, daring capers, and clever verbal spars. It’s very well written and full of magic. I am truly hooked and can’t wait to see where the next book goes!

  • The Wendy

    I have only been able to read the first few chapters, and they seem fairly promising. Fantasy is absolutley not a genre I am familiar with, so I suppose this is a good startibg

  • An amazing retelling of the story!

    The characters are so vibrant in their actions and feelings! It's a jolt to the system to see Wendy pursue her dreams. If you want a book with funny narration and dialogue, and has a female protagonist fighting against social norms in a magical London by using a lot of wit, this is it.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Because women are as good as men

    I grew up with the Disney-version of Peter Pan. This retelling is much different, off course. I love how it used several things I knew. I cannot say if it took many things from the original, because I never read it - mental note, read Peter Pan! The angle of women's rights and misoginy was a pretty awesome one!

    Thanks for your feedback!
