Critic Reviews

"By far the most charming and clever reimagining of the Boy Who Never Grew Up story that I have ever encountered. Readers of all ages, prepare yourselves for a very big adventure." (Terry Brooks)
"Peter David sees the world a bit differently from everyone else - strangely, wonderfully, stunningly differently. Reading Tigerheart gave me the feeling of walking a comfortably familiar road, but seeing things from angles I never knew existed. A beautiful, delightful story." (R.A. Salvatore)

I don't believe, I don't believe, I don't believe

I don't believe this is Peter David's best and I don't believe Peter Pan needed to be rewritten. I have only ever read the first chapter of the original Peter Pan and of course watched the Disney Cartoon, which like all Disney Cartoons are nothing like the books. I am not sure what age group this is written for and it is not Gregory Maguire.

There are some good parts to the book and at times it has a Terry Pratchett feel to it. For instance there is an Indian named "Dog Licking himself". There is another character whose name is on the label of his shirt, "Irregular".

I got interested in Peter David after reading Q-Squarred, a Star Trek Next Generation book. It is one of my favorite books and I don't normally read Star Trek books. Audible has the abridged version and I normally don't suggest abridged version, but this is so good I recommend it. Because Peter David has two first names, when you search for him you will get 36 books of which he is only the author of ten.

If you are looking for Peter Pan, get the original. If you want a cool retelling get Greg Maguire's "Wicked". This is the retelling of the Wizard of Oz from the point of view of the Witch. It is so good that there is a Broadway Play.

Author wished he'd written Peter Pan

Lame re-write of Peter Pan. Even uses famous lines like "straight on till morning". I gave up half way through. Too boring.
