"They were like brother and sister."(Not the actual quote, but the sentiment expressed.)

Yes, of course. Because I know loads of brothers and sisters who skinny dip together. Absolute loads.


Tink: Ooh, Imma stalk Tiger Lily. She fascinates me.
Tiger Lily: *oblivious*
Tink: Oooh, looky there. Imma stalk Peter because he's cool.
Peter: What are you doing?
Tink: I'm sleeping in your hair because I love you.

Tink: I've started a "Wendy Hate Club". Any takers?
Tiger Lily: I'll get in on that.


Cross dressing Tik Tok, in touch with his "feminine side", and his side story really bugged me, mostly because Phillip, the guy who is attempting to show the Indians that there is a God, is played out as (the side story) villain, resulting in Tik Tok's suicide. Can I not find a blatantly Christian book where the people introducing God and/or religion are not set up as the bad guys? Is it really that hard?


Tiger Lily and Peter were, admittedly, cute at times and, at others, far too childish and annoying. The way they acted and the way they talked and just everything. Peter's anger at Tiger Lily and Tiger Lily's vindictiveness at Peter was so..*ugh*. And then he leaves and she gets married to Giant. And then Pine Sap, who we were made to believe would only ever be friends with Tiger Lily, gets married to Tiger Lily after Giant *cough*dies*cough*.

I liked Tink for the most part the whole way through, though she could be a little too mean to Wendy.


Holy crap. Holy CRAP. Smee is freaking creepy in this. Wow. Disney version Smee is now a clever persona he puts on. It was clever, in a way, though not much done with it.


Captain Hook, however, I was impressed with slightly. Very different from my thoughts, and while still bad, you understand more about him (though I think I might have preferred this to be his story before he became Captain Hook)and he even elicits some sympathy.


The lost boys were about the same as what I expected, if with more personality for some of them.


The aging aspect was interesting. There's no set age; you just age till you don't anymore. You reach a point, usually something important, and that's when you stop. For example, there was a baby whose parents died and that's when he stopped aging, and there was a man who didn't stop aging till he was in his fifties. It also becomes somewhat genetic.

Also, you can't get to Neverland by actively trying to find it, it always happens by accident.

It was okay *shrug* but I, personally, wouldn't have missed out on anything had I not read it.
