Peter Pan is a pretty big deal in my house. (Well, his nemesis Hook more specifically, but that’s a story for another day.) After Pan’s appearance on the TV show “Once Upon a Time” my children started to ask questions.
“Who are the lost boys?” “Where did they come from?” “Why do they do everything Pan says? Even when it’s mean?”
And so on and so on.
I tried to explain (Really, I did!) but decided it would all make much more sense if they just listened to the story the way J.M. Barrie intended it. So I read it to them.
Mission successful. On several different levels.
It has been YEARS since I read Peter Pan, and (to be honest) up until this point I had only read it once. (AKA: my memory bank only contained broad details.) Under different circumstances this wouldn’t have mattered one iota to me, but finding myself reading a modern retelling a few months later? I was happy I was a wealth of information.
Why? Because I was able to pick up on details I NEVER would have otherwise. For example: I had actually forgotten who wrote PP until I was forced to look it up. (I know…shame on me.) The lead protagonist’s name in Andrew’s “Girl Lost?” Gwendolyn Barrie. Coincidence? I think not.
But, I think I’ll leave the semantics for the book club. How about I talk about what I liked and what I very decidedly DID NOT!
"Northern was supposed to be a fresh start—a place where people didn’t know who I was or how I had spent years in and out of mental institutes. People didn’t know about my parents death or the island no one heard of. But when Peter sits next to me in lit class, I can’t stop the memories, and I don’t want to.Read more ›
Girl Lost is a New Adult Contemporary Romance. It provided me with a couple hours' entertainment. This book starts out sweet and innocent (more along the lines of a young adult or teen book) but then the more mature content (course language, violence, descriptive sex) starts ... this is definitely a new adult story! It's a twist on the tale of Peter Pan and Wendy, young adult style in a college setting with twisted characters. It's entertaining with sexy passages. The romance/love story aspect of it was nice. The flashbacks were cool!
I read it over the course of 3 days (it took me 6.5 hours) and was curious as to how the story was going to end. It took me a couple chapters (the 30% mark) before I got invested in the story. Remember, this is a retelling of Peter Pan: expect a certain amount of unrealism in a realistic world. Most of the characters' reactions are over the top but I chalked it up to the fact that Gwen has mental issues and, as for all the other characters, I assumed they were all from Never Never Land, making them all a little coo-coo in our contemporary world. Some characters could have been integrated into the classic story a bit more (I was certain one of the characters was Captain Hook and that he would end up being a villain of sorts... but he wasn't). I would have liked a little bit more to the ending. What happens to Gwen? What is her reaction and the consequences to her reaction? What happens to Peter? What happens to Belle? What happens to the company? The end is left to the reader's imagination.
This is a stand alone book.
My rating criteria:
Did I finish the book? Yes.
Did I read it in one sitting or had difficulty putting it down? No.Read more ›
