James Hook is a child who only wants to grow up.
When he meets Peter Pan, a boy who loves to pretend and is intent on never becoming a man, James decides he could try being a child—at least briefly. James joins Peter Pan on a holiday to Neverland, a place of adventure created by children’s dreams, but Neverland is not for the faint of heart. Soon James finds himself longing for home, determined that he is destined to be a man. But Peter refuses to take him back, leaving James trapped in a world just beyond the one he loves. A world where children are to never grow up.
But grow up he does.
And thus begins the epic adventure of a Lost Boy and a Pirate.
This story isn’t about Peter Pan; it’s about the boy whose life he stole. It’s about a man in a world that hates men. It’s about the feared Captain James Hook and his passionate quest to kill the Pan, an impossible feat in a magical land where everyone loves Peter Pan.
I am a total lover of fairy tale re-tellings and I especially love anything to do with Peter Pan (or Alice). So when I strolled into the library today I immediately picked this up. I’ve only just started but I’m definitely Hook-ed (hahaha I make corny jokes). So here’s my few lines from page 56:
It seemed that they didn’t keep time here. Maybe it didn’t exist at all; James didn’t know. Either way. there had been some sort of night and today felt longer than yesterday, but it was marching forward as regular days tended to do.
There you have it I can’t wait to see where this story goes. Please share you’re Friday 56 with me.
