    One thought on “Lost Boy

    1. oooh, choice awards semifinalist for best horror what will happen there 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 them.i 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 [...]


    2. 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 question, a response that has the potential to alter the reader s perception of the original work forever.It certainly changed my ideas about Peter Pan The reason for that is how strikingly well the story is put [...]


    3. He didn t bring magic and fun and eternal youth He brought fear and madness and death, trailing blood behind him, trailing all the corpses of all the boys behind him.And yet it didn t weigh him to the earth at all Every drop of spilled blood only made him lighter, gave him the freedom to fly.Not so cute now, is he There are LOTS probably far too many Peter Pan mega freakazoid fans out there, and I m one of them sorrynotsorryI even had a crush on Peter as a kid Damn if this book didn t cure me of [...]


    4. A young man named Jamie tells the tale of the worst villain he s ever known an impish boy named Peter.I 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 chance.Lost 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 [...]

Find all of my reviews at 52bookminimum All children grow up, or they die, or both All children, except one Before I begin, I have something I need to ask Christina Henry I d say Lost Boy was highly anticipated by me, but that would be a lie because I had no clue about its existence until the Recommended To You feature finally got one right and popped this up on my feed I luuuuuuuurved Alice, but passed on Red Queen because homie don t do series, yo When I saw Lost Boy was a retelling of Peter [...]


    6. Christina Henry, author of the chilling Alice, which is a brilliant re telling of Alice in Wonderland, has shifted focus to a new fairytale In Lost Boy, readers get to experience the story of the boy who never grew up through the origin story of his arch nemesis And what a story it is Peter will say I m a villain, that I wronged him, that I never was his friend But I told you already Peter lies This is what really happened loc 85, ebook Goosebumps Yeah.Fans of the original tale will need to prep [...]


    7. Peter promised we would all be young and happy forever Peter lies.Ellen Gail tested Chloe approved.In Lost Boy The True Story of Captain Hook, Christina Henry does what she did insanely well in Alice and brings a good deal of bloody retelling fun to a classic fairy tale In this case, it s the tale of Peter Pan he never wants to grow up, and he just wants all of his friends to stay young and carefree with him.Peter s boys never grow up.What could possibly be wrong with that Our main character her [...]


    8. It is a fantastic lie I ve always been the devil s advocate when it comes to villains because monsters are made, not born right Well, when it comes to Captain Hook, Christina Henry gives us all the dark, bloody details related to how Hook s hatred and vengeance gained its shape It s not a pretty story Hook wasn t always the villain In fact, according to Christina Henry s imagination, you may be shocked to learn who the true villain really was I love retellings and reimagined prequels, and Lost B [...]


    9. Peter lies Peter is a manipulator Peter thinks only of Peter He is not the rescuer of unwanted children He is not a magical hero or purveyor of fun and excitement Peter is a monster, but the boys he brings to his island are too na ve to realize, until it is too late, but the boys did have Jamie.Jamie was one of Peter s first boys Jamie was the teacher, the nurturer, the voice of reason, the protector and the one whose attention Peter craved the most Jamie knew the real Peter, the ugly side of th [...]


    10. This review can also be found at Carole s Random Life in Books.This was a lot of fun I am not really someone who reads a lot of fairy tale retellings but the idea of this one really appealed to me I really don t know a whole lot about the original Peter Pan story besides what I know from Disney which was probably one of the things that made me want to pick this book up It did start out a bit slow for me and I was able to set it aside but once I really got going, I didn t want to put it down This [...]


    11. Link to my BlogHow am i supposed to review a book that was everything i could have asked for in a retelling from Hook s perspective It was brutal, bloody, and scary at times but my god was it brilliant Definitely a five star read for me because it took my favourite book in the world and gave it a new life Christina Henry is a phenomenal writer She took an old classic that most of us have read as children and she played off the sinister bits we get from the original to make this wonderfully horr [...]


    12. This is Lord of the Flies meets Lord of the Lost Boys you really aren t going to like Peter Pan any Taking oh so familiar story and making you rethink the logic of it from a grown up perspective is a common trope but this one was so clear, so painfully true to life and logical that you wonder how you d never seen it before As a child I used to do all those ridiculously fearless things that children do I leaped before I looked and it all turned out fine And as a child I could think of nothing f [...]


    13. First of all, this book upset me in a way that most books are never capable of doing I know a lot of reviewers who will immediately up their rating for a book if it hits them hard, because they consider it a sign of a talented author, and while I can understand that point of view, I don t agree with it for my own reviews I DNF d this at 60% but my general rule of thumb is that panning a book at 30% onward warrants a review.WHAT I LIKED Lost Boy has an interesting premise the origins story of Cap [...]


    14. Also in dieser Version muss man Peter Pan einfach hassen Und Jamie lieben Christina Henry hat mit Lost Boy ein weiteres d steres und verdrehtes Retelling geschrieben Hier geht es um die Geschichte von Jamie, der vor langer Zeit von Peter Pan nach Neverland gebracht wurde Nur ist Peter Pan hier nicht der nette Junge, den wir aus dem originalen Buch, dem Disney Film oder den zahlreichen anderen Verfilmungen kennen Nein Er spielt gerne Spiele wie Battle und k mpft gerne gegen die Piraten, wenn eine [...]


    15. Peter s idea of fun was considerably savage than his This was a quick read The first portion of the story reminded me a great deal of Lord of the Flies, albeit gory and less allegory The innocence of PETER PAN is twisted into something very dark, here I don t want to ruin the fun of it, so I m not going to expand further on the storyline other than to say it does an very interesting job exploring some previously untold backstory They weren t forever young, unless dying when you were young kept [...]


    16. Thank you Penguin for the ARC of the latest chapter of the Peter Pan mythos I have previously read biographies of J.M Barrie, so I had some idea of what I was getting into As I have mentioned on other platforms, this is not the Disney version of the story If you want to keep and cherish that version run far away from this story It will change everything you love about the character.For those of you who wish to continue it is a well written story that continues ideas that one might have come up w [...]


    17. Updated Post with Complete Review 3.5 out of 5 Stars Come away and we ll have adventures and be friends always It s safe to assume if you re anything like me that a part of your youth was spent devoted to Peter Pan A time where you were certain that if your thoughts were happy enough and if your window remained unlocked that he might just appear to whisk you off to Neverland.The Peter who filled our dreams was a fearless leader who taught us how to crow and how to believe in faeries He reminded [...]

    21. 5 out of 10 Quite interesting retelling of a classic story, but not my cup of tea A lot of violence, a lot of little boys It s likeThe Maze Runner Lord of the Flies Peter Pen.However, I did love the ending.


    22. I ve said it before and I ll say it again.Peter Pan is not a boy of dreams but one of nightmares Beneath the seemingly sweet and carefree attitude hides a malicious and conniving center that will stop at nothing, not even death, to make sure he is having the ultimate adventure The Lost Boys are less of the fun and playful ragamuffins that we grew up watching in the Disney movie and like the answer to What would happen if Lord of the Flies was a fantasy realism black comedy novel for children Ch [...]


    23. So, I saw this on my feed and zoomed in on it like some kind of fucking homing beacon Peter Pan wasn t my go to movie while being a kid and surrounded by every freaking Disney movie you just HAD TO HAVE But I digress I still want this anyways as it seems as dark as my soul and not filled with fluffy romance shit like the rest of them are Le fucking sigh I was just lazily scrolling along down my news feed when I see a review from Miss Karen, whom I feel has read every book in the world and then s [...]


    24. Gimme I m super curious to see if this will somewhat mesh the original Peter Pan story with maybe I mean, look at the cover GIMME

    26. Source Publisher Genre Young Adult, Fantasy, Retelling Rating 4.0 MY Thoughts Christina Henry, who took on Alice in Wonderland in her own unique way and managed to knock it out of the ball park, returns with a new take on Peter Pan in Lost Boy The True Story of Captain Hook Before reading Lost Boy, do yourself a favor and pretend that you ve never read J.M Barrie s Peter Pan Pretend that Lost Boy is instead the prequel to Barrie s novel, or if you must, a re imaging of the tale that puts the foc [...]



    27. this was just sodish idk but it was not nearly as dark as it should have been rtc when i can understand what the fuck just happened.


    28. Lost Boy is not a book I would recommend to YA s under the age of 16 Just a precaution to those who think this is your normal Peter Pan book It is far from normal It borders on a version of what I would call a milder Dexter meets Peter Pan Lord of the Flies book For those of you not familiar with the series Dexter , google it and you will be prepared for this book It starts out dark from the very first page, and continues to grow darker and darker.This review will be vague because were it not, i [...]
