Publisher's Summary

The author of Alice takes listeners through a dark tale of Peter Pan, who turns his best friend into his nemesis, Captain Hook.

On an island lives a boy called Peter and his band of merry lost boys, young forever. That is unless they get sick or killed by pirates or eaten by crocodiles or unless - inexplicably - they grow old. For some of them do grow old, and nobody knows why.

One of these boys is called Jamie, and he was the first boy that Peter ever brought to the island. Jamie's lived there for longer than he can remember, and it's not all fun and games. Peter thinks the boys are replaceable, that if one dies or grows up, he can swap in another from the Other Place, the place where he collects new playmates. Jamie looks out for the boys and takes care of them. He does everything Peter does not. Jamie tries to keep them alive because to him they matter. When Peter steals a boy who is too young, Jamie takes the boy under his wing. But Peter won't have that, for nobody will ever take Jamie from him. Ever.

    Story
    "Wonderful ^_^ Just what I was looking for."

    I absolutely loved it!
    Super engaging adventure that puts such a unique perspective and twist on a beloved story.
    Narrator really brought everything to life as well. Brilliant.

    It was easy to relate emotionally with Jamie. You felt every moment of despair and revelation. By part 4 I was enchanted by Jamie's character.
    Very creative story telling that I can't wait to revisit if any sequels are planned!

    Story
    "Awesome! A super retelling of Peter Pan. "

    A grown up look at a fantastical world from an adolescent's POV. A coming of age story in a land where the only adults are pirates and growing very old does not necessarily equal growing up. It's a story of the love between a boy & his mother, of snide & expectant, brave & protective, selfish & generous brotherly love, of hard won and late budding true love and of a loveless society that lets it's low income, lower class children slip through it's fingers unnoticed and unmissed. There's still swash buckling adventure and crowing and lost boys living in a tree. But, unfortunately (or maybe not - read the book!! Or listen to it on audible), I grew up since I last read Peter Pan. After reading this book, seems the story grew up, too. 😁

    Story
    "Best take on Peter Pan in years!"

    I loved this story! Ive already read Alice and Red Queen, so i knew I would like Lost Boy, but my expectations were still passed by a long shot. The ending was superb amd the narrorator added that special vocal touch. If a 6th star were possibe, I would have pressed it.
