Format: Kindle Edition
I always love a good classic rewritten. When I saw the description for this book, it intrigued me. A son of Captain Hook who can only stopped by an 80 year old Peter Pan. Sounded like my kind of book.

So I sent it to my Kindle and couldn't wait to read it.

When I finally pulled it up and read it, I was disappointed. It was a 52 page book, but the author had upped the font size from the normal font size, so it wasn't as long of a story as what I had expected. Now, the length by itself wouldn't have been an issue, except that I found no depth. I felt like I was on the back of a frog hopping here and there and trying to hang on for dear life. At the end I had a feeling of, "great summary, now where's the full book?"

However, the plot itself wasn't bad. It twisted a bit, and even surprised me sometimes, though I was never at the edge of my seat. The problem was, some of the plot seemed forced, or didn't quite make sense. For instance, when Wendy's memory was wiped and she was sent back to normal England ... where did she go? It doesn't quite work out mathematically. And I never did figure out the boys who visited Pan in the beginning ... and then showed up briefly a second time towards the end.

There is a sequel, which I have read, but it didn't answer my question about Wendy, though the boys played a greater role ... I'm not sure when I'll get around to reviewing that, though.
