Lost Boy The True Story of Captain Hook

review Lost Boy The True Story of Captain Hook Ï eBook or Kindle ePUB S idea of fun is sharper than a pirate’s sword Because it’s never been all fun and games on the island Our neighbors are pirates and monsters Our toys are knife and stick and rock the kinds of playthings that bitePeter promised we would all be young and happy forever Peter lie. A young man named Jamie tells the tale of the worst villain he s ever known an impish boy named PeterI ve long been a fan of dark retellings of classic tales like Alice and The Child Thief When I saw the Bibliosanctum was having a giveaway for this one I jumped at the chanceLost Boy is a dark retelling of Peter Pan from the point of view of the boy who would become Captain Hook And it s fantastic What would an island populated by eleven year old boys really be like It s way like Lord of the Flies than Neverland Lost Boys die all the time and Peter goes to the Other Place to retrieve just like he did with Jamie the boy who has been his right hand for 150 seasons at least Peter as an uncaring sociopath makes a lot of sense and is very well thought out Peter has a short attention span and is extremely selfish and self centered The Lost Boys and the pirates are just playthings to him to be tossed away as soon as they become uninteresting Actually he acts like a cat than a little boy now that I think about itAfter being on the island with Peter for nearly a century Jamie starts seeing the chinks in Peter s armor and knows a bloody confrontation is coming Peter isn t happy unless he s the center of attention so when Jaime spends time with some of the newer Lost Boys things go south in a hurryThe book has a lot of brutal heart breaking plot twists I set the book down to tell my wife about them a few times but for the most part I wolfed this book down in three sittings It s a really gripping read and I couldn t wait to see what psychotic gesture of friendship Peter would make nextThe dark spin on the Peter Pan mythos was fantastic This book postulates answers to age old uestions like Why don t the boys age and What s with the vendetta between Peter and the pirates When Christina focused her dark lens on Peter Pan she crafted a winner If you like dark takes on classic tales this is the book for you Five out of five stars

review Lost Boy The True Story of Captain Hook Ï eBook or Kindle ePUB From the national bestselling author of Alice comes a familiar story with a dark hook a tale about Peter Pan and the friend who became his nemesis a nemesis who may not be the blackhearted villain Peter says he isThere is one version of my story that everyone knows And then there. oooh goodreads choice awards semifinalist for best horror what will happenthere are so very many enthusiastic superfans of Peter Pan out there and so very many retellings and variations of the story have been published to entice these superfans and before we go any further let me out myself i am not one of themi don t dislike Peter Pan but my only exposure to the story has been through the disney filter and i was never really keen on any of the disney movies with people in them give me The Fox and the Hound or The Aristocats any day but Sleeping Beauty snooore so while i saw the cartoon and i read the little disney picture books about peter pan i was never really driven to seek out the original which i expect given what i know about the disnification of other stories is very different from its source materialall of that is to say that even though there are likely many references and allusions here that i didn t catch or understand the full significance of that will no doubt delight you superfans i still really enjoyed this book i m fond of the villains redeemed genre that gregory maguire popularized and to which so many other authors have made offerings and it s amazing to have such a wealth of retellings of beloved stories to satisfy readers cravings to revisit their favorite characters no matter what shape the retelling takes or how successful it is as a book on its own i am myself a superfan of Wuthering Heights and will read any and all retellings even if they are atrocious as many of them arebut fear not peter pan kids this one is a million miles away from atrocious which is not surprising considering how popular this author s Alice in Wonderland retellings are both of which were bought excitedly by me only to sit unread on my shelves because we have already established that i am the worstbut i read this one so ppbblltt and it is such a fun bloody ride here we have jamie the future captain hook and the first boy peter chose to join him in his world of adventures and eternal youth and endless irresponsibility since then jamie has been peter s right hand man boy his first and most special friend and has witnessed the arrival of so many other chosen boys over the years and he has also been responsible for burying them because fine print eternal youth is not the same thing as immortality and on peter s island of fun and gleeful romping there are also pirates and crocodiles and the many eyed and illnesses and the battles and while one of the most appealing characteristics of boyhood is the freedom from thinking about the future or conseuences or anything other than what the next adventure will be jamie has started to feel the weight of his actual years and is troubled by peter s short memory when it comes to all of the unnecessary lives lost to dangers sought out for no other reason than a lark an adventure a game which simmering disuiet is already beginning to complicate their friendship and is made worse when peter brings back a boy who is way too young for peter s rough and tumble ways and jamie feels responsible for protecting him from the many dangers of the island not the least of which is peter s easily bored carelessness jealousy and inherent lack of remorseit s a really interesting dynamic as jamie assumes the parental presence lacking in these boys lives even before they were abducted and peter is just collecting temporary playmates like a kid with a jar full of frogs who forgets to punch airholes in the lid it s a clever twist a great character study and did i mention all the carnage it s like Lord of the Flies with a much higher body

review Lost Boy The True Story of Captain Hook Ï eBook or Kindle ePUB Is the truth This is how it happened How I went from being Peter Pan’s first and favorite lost boy to his greatest enemy Peter brought me to his island because there were no rules and no grownups to make us mind He brought boys from the Other Place to join in the fun but Peter'. Everybody has their own story to tell and often than not people only see things from one perspective In the original Peter Pan Captain Hook is an angry perhaps slightly jealous tyrant But why is he this way Christina Henry weaves a terrifying narrative together in response to such a uestion a response that has the potential to alter the reader s perception of the original work foreverIt certainly changed my ideas about Peter Pan The reason for that is how strikingly well the story is put together There is nothing in this speculative preuel that could not have happened in relation to the original work Taken in a certain light the actions of the childish Peter are as twisted and evil as Henry made them out to be He has the carelessness of a child and with such carelessness comes a misunderstanding of the needs of others Peter is unaware of how his actions can be considered bad he doesn t set out to do evil he accidently does so with his selfish ways And because of this he has the potential to ruin many livesThe boys are taken to Neverland to suit his purpose and it is very much his island existing for his personal enjoyment rather than creating a sense of community The death of the boys means little him as he has a very vague concept of death in general a product of his immortality They are all replaceable and inconseuential Each boy has deluded himself into thinking he is special that he is Peter s favourite but in reality he has been manipulated by Peter He convinces people that he is their friend so he can use them for his own entertainment Whether that is frightening pirates or exploring the many dangers of the island all the boys are at Peter s disposal Jamie our soon to be Captain Hook was no differentTold in the first person from his perspective the narrative tracks his disenchantment with a friend he once loved After a series of careless deaths and unfortunate encounters Peter s spell this charming illusion is broken The shift is gradual as the friendship between the boys slowly breaks down One only cares about fun and games and the other is starting to grow up leaving the whimsical nature of the ageless lost boy behind The end result is inevitable and deeply saddening What Christina Henry does so well with her adaptation is to create a situation which is so plausible in relation to the original work Her Peter is violent and unpredictable when his actions are considered beyond the heroics he defines them as Indeed not everything is as simple as it seems in NeverlandThe story is highly reminiscent of The Lord of the Flies by William Golding in which a group of children form their own society centred on ideas of violence and disastrous attempts of immature governance I personally recommend this book to those who enjoyed the work and wish to read about similar themes in a fantasy based setting
