Very cute and sweet story about a girl who travels to Neverland and falls for Captain Hook He s not the Hook of the Disney cartoon He s like a blond version of the Hook from Once Upon a Time I will add a visual later I m watching the Golden Globes Have I ever mentioned before that Peter Pan is one of my favorite fairy tale characters of all time Well, next to Cinderella, that is I have always loved Peter Pan and Tinkerbell When Hook was included in the TV show Once Upon A Time a few years back, I immediately got hooked And never looked back.
Anna Kat s Neverland series is my newest favorite Peter Pan retelling Oh, let me rephrase that This isn t actually a retelling This is a story of Angelina McFarland who fell down from the clouds, caught by a spritely flying boy named Peter, forgot her name, discovered Neverland, met the boys that never grew old, desperately tried to return to London, and captured by Captain Hook Sounds familiar Well, believe it or not, this isn Is An Alternate Cover Edition For This ASIN Here Any Last Words Go To Hell, You Freaking Filthy Godforsaken Our Noses Almost Touch As He Dips His Head And Brushes A Strand Of My Hair Behind My Ear Angel, The Word You Re Looking For Is Pirate Strange Things Are Happening In Neverland Although Angelina McFarland Loves Reading Fairytales, She Never Dreamed Of Falling Right Into One Herself Literally But Who Is This Flying Boy Who Saved Her And Why õ read õ Neverland by Anna Katmore ✓ Doesn T He Want To Grow Up Desperately Trying To Find A Way Off This Cursed Island, Angelina Runs Into A Ruthless Pirate Hook Captures Her And Keeps Her Trapped On His Ship, The Jolly Roger, To Lure The Flying Boy Out Of His Hiding But Is Hook Really The Heartless Man She Heard About The Time Angel Spends With Him, The She Starts To Wonder Her Growing Feelings For Him Are As Intense As Shocking, And Soon She Can T Stop Thinking About How Soft His Lips Felt On Hers When He Kissed Her Under The Stars As Time Passes, An Old Train Ticket To London Is All She Has Left To Remind Her Of Her Former Life And Why She Can T Give Up Trying To Find A Way HomeOr Is Staying In Neverland Forever The Better Choice After All Grab A Happy Thought And Follow Angel On An Adventure That Will Keep You Breathless And Smiling Long After You read The Last Page Mind The Cliffhanger I M Sorry The Sequel PAN S REVENGE Is Already Available Although this book has a fanfiction vibe in it, I enjoyed reading the sexy James Hook and the somewhat boring Angel I would have been interested in reading Part 2 because the ending in this one is frustratingly good but when I saw the blurb for the second book, I decided to not give a fuck any.
After reading Peter Pan to her twin sisters for bed, Angel soon finds herself falling from the clouds It seems she s fallen into Neverland and into the middle of a serious conflict between Peter Pan and Captain Hook Turns out their story isn t what Disney would have you believe I LOVED THIS SO MUCH I liked Peter right away But fell in love with Hook almost immediately This is not the story from your childhood.
But it s perfect and leaves me waiting desperately for the next one.
Any last words Go to hell, you freakingfilthygodforsaken Our noses almost touch as he dips his head and brushes a strand of my hair behind my ear Angel, the word you re looking for is pirate Strange things are happening in Neverland Although Angelina McFarland loves reading fairytales, she never dreamed of falling right into one herself Literally But who is this flying boy who saved her And why doesn t he want to grow up Desperately trying to find a way off this cursed island, Angelina runs into a ruthless pirate Hook captures her and keeps her trapped on his ship, the Jolly Roger, to lure the flying boy out of his hiding But is Hook really the heartless man she heard about The time Angel spends with him, the she starts to wonder Her growing feelings for him are as intense as shockin ☆ Neverland ☆ To see full review click here.
But utterly horrible.
It s actually one of the better reads I had when exploring the vast world of self pub though to be honest, I usually don t have the best of luck with self pub.
The premises intrigued me and since I imagine Captain Hook love interest or really any Captain Hook looking like Colin O Donoghue I think it s obvious that I ll read any Peter Pan retelling for the mind candy And the whole twist with Peter Pan was good too if not original cough, Once Upon a Time had Evil Pan first, cough.
But other than a great premises and some okay kissing scenes this book blew.
Though compared to it s sequel spoiler alert it is a freaking masterpiece.
Let s talk about what didn Zu Beginn des Buches war ich nicht begeistert Es kam mir vor, als ob ich eine Nacherz hlung von Peter Pan lesen w rde Aber mit dem Zusammentreffen der Protagonisten Angel und Hook begann eine tolle, liebevolle und spannende Geschichte.
Die Charaktere hatten jeder f r sich eine Vergangenheit, eine Geschichte, die sie pr gte Au erdem machten sie w hrend der Handlung eine Entwicklung durch, die nachvollziehbar war Man konnte sich wirklich gut in die Gef hle und Gedanken hinein versetzen Die Atmosph re war einfach idyllisch und lud zum Tr umen ein Die Perspektivwechsel machten die Geschichte sehr unterhaltsam Der Schreibstil war im Allgemeinen leicht und erfrischend Genau richtig f r hei e Sommertage.
Ich f hlte mich durchweg gut unterhalten Der holprige Anfang und manch abrupte Wendungen f hren zu einen Stern Abzug Aber Alles in Allen 4 St
A Peter Pan retelling with Hook as the main love interest Sign me the F up Update DNF at 52%This is not a Peter Pan retelling, this is a Captain Hook fan fiction I kept trying to push myself a little further, but I just couldn t The writing felt flat, it was just too simple There were no engaging sentences, no quotes I d like to highlight, nothing Neverland takes a bold engaging premise, takes out the bold engaging part, and gives you the premise Like, come on, a Peter Pan retelling with a twist with Captain Hook as the main love interest and a supposedly ending that ll make me gasp out loud, it had all the elements of a fantastic Peter Pan retelling, but it just didn t give it justice Angel, our protagonist, is this too perfect to exist English girl that enjoys baby sitting her sisters Foiled by a Goodreads rating again I really wanted to like this Peter Pan retelling, and I thought I would The reviews are, for the most part, good But, once again, I m left scratching my head and wondering if I missed something How can something this bad generate so much praise First, I have to give credit where credit is due The author had the nugget of a good idea here She switched things up a little and gave Peter and Hook a bit of a different relationship than what we re used to seeing It could have been a really interesting dynamic but some of her other choices really didn t work.
In this version of the story, we ve got a nineteen year old Captain Hook presumably so he can be a suitable insta love interest for the seventeen year old heroine I found that pretty unbelievable And then, to make matters worse, Hook isn t even t
