You'll recognize all the characters in this story - Peter, the Lost Boys, Wendy and John Darling - yep, they're all in there. Now combine those characters with Egyptian curses, a posh New York school, and you'll find yourselves on a whole new adventure.
I must admit that I was not a fan of Another Faust - I read it and, sadly, I did not like it. So when I heard of Another Pan, I decided to give the Nayeri's one more chance at winning me over. While there were many aspects of the novel that I did enjoy - the romance between Peter and Wendy, the modern-ness of the whole thing, I loved that the Lost Boys would text "happy thoughts", even the mystery of the The Book of Gates and how it played into the storyline - I still did not fall for this book... and I'll explain why. Firstly, it started off really slow. I mean I was 100 pages in and it was still very slow for me. Secondly, I really liked Wendy as a character - she was strong, faithful, she had charisma, was quirky and I really liked that she stood her ground when she believed in something. This is the Wendy you meet for the first half of the book. Somewhere along the way we lose that Wendy. For the second half of the book I found her to be whiny, she forgets about her wishes, dreams, etc. and somehow her thoughts only revolve around Peter... this really annoyed me. I hate that girls will drop everything at the drop of a hat for a guy... ugh.Read more ›
The decriptive language in Another Pan was just so vivid, the modern-ness refreshing, and reading about Peter, the LBs, Wendy, John, and Tina was an absolute delight. The only part I was mildly annoyed about was the beyond-irritating assistant, Simon. The thoughts and dreams that were written about made his character more realistic, true, and I will admit that the story might not have been as good if he were not incorporated into it, but still...
The point is, I loved this book and will cherish it always.
Another character in this book that annoyed me was John Darling....sigh that kid had some problems. and that gangsta talk...gag me.Also It felt as if Tina,Peters...um...woman i guess you could call it, was a two dimensional character, she really didn't pop. Poor Connor, he just seemed to be thrown into the mix just so Wendy would have a boyfriend and so Wendy Darling could have a little drama added to her life. You don't really see the relationship between the two. Like in the book Conner and Peter get in a fight, because Peter is holding Wendy's hand and Conner walks away and tells Wendy "we are through"....um what was there to begin with? You didn't see anything, when people comment that Wendy is seeing Connor....i wondering how is that possible if they are never shown in the book as a couple. other than the first few chaps. maybe thats just me.
On the bright side i thought the story/plot was beyond breathtaking and surprising, i wasn't expecting Egypt to played into it all, which was a sweet surprise because i love anything pharaoh/ Egyptian style.
overall the characters are what mostly annoyed me but the plot was ingenious and i give the authors kudos for doing that!
First things first – this is a well written, moderately exciting (though awkwardly paced) fantasy adventure novel. It has love triangles, mysteries, and snarky teens galore. The ‘happy thought’ interludes are a nice bit of narration and the authors move between points of views in a way that should be messy but somehow works. It does not have much character development or meaningful character interactions, but if you’re in the mood for a quick read where you’ll be ten steps ahead of your protagonists the entire way, this is certainly a book for you.
I started this book as an audiobook (performed by the very talented Katherine Kellgren) and did not realize it was part of a series until around half way through when I figured out I was going to get no help in understanding where the imposter nurse/death goddess actually came from (what happened to the real nurse again…?) That said, I didn’t feel like I was missing out on too much, and I’m not sure if that speaks to the strength of the novel as being stand-alone, or as a weakness in the series as a whole…
So we have the classic cast of Peter Pan set in modern-day New York, where Mr. Darling teaches at a private school where his classically trained in the art of museum-curating and knowing all things of Egyptian history children, Wendy and John (and…Michael?) attend.Read more ›
