I loved the emotional & psychological underpinning, and it all fit perfectly, felt completely organic.
Also, there's an undeniable resemblance between Peter Pan and Lord of the Flies, LotF being like the dark side of PP, and this story captures some of that as well, but it also contains a spirit of hope, of compassion, it's conclusions aren't that "we are really monsters" but "we are really human".
Just, tremendously moving, romantic, funny, deliciously sexy, life and love affirming. And the ending is perfect.
I'd give this several more stars if I could.
Even more this story was beautiful. It gave a whole new world to the story without taking away from the old world that the original story had created and the romance between Peter and Hook? -swoons-
Bottom line, if you love Peter Pan and are curious as to how a story would be if Peter had really been Wendy but had always felt like he truly should have been Peter, then you need to read this. Trust me, you will not regret it.
In the beginning I was leery because Peter came across so cruel and his war games were harming those around him, but he didn’t care because what he cared about was his entertainment and stories.
The themes of make-believe and fantasy, and the world building around it is so beautiful and powerful and definitely one of my favorite elements of this book.
I kept seeing only positive things about this book, and it has definitely lived up to the hype. Peter Darling is a perfect retelling/reimagining and explores lots of really powerful themes, especially idea of how all the people who find Neverland are the outcasts, those society can’t love and accept as they are. And every time Peter would be deadnamed, but especially that last scene where he deadnames himself, were heartbreaking and all too real.
This book is worthy of all the positive reviews it has received. Beautiful and powerful and delicate, I absolutely adored this story and the many layers and nuances it explores.
So this was definitely GOOD, it just has a few flaws that bothered me.
Peter Darling has the same problem for me as Every Heart A Doorway: it feels like the beginning and end of a five-star book. There's no middle; Peter's character arc goes from one place to another place in the blink of an eye. There's some development to the story and character arcs, but not nearly enough. Same with the romance. While it was absolutely sweet, these two did not get as much development as I'd hoped.
The beginning has its own issues as well. Both of the character introductions are fairly unappealing, and had me feeling disengaged. Character development is great, but these two characters were so unappealing towards the beginning that I found myself totally unengaged for quite a bit of the story.
The ending, on the other hand, was awesome. It's not a perfect ending, but it's still happy. Those are my favorite kind of endings.
Maybe recommended, but not a must-read.
