Review: I do not think there will be any need of a summary. It is the tale we all know, thanks to Walt Disney Studios, about the Boy who Wouldn't Grow Up. First made into a play, later the novel I read and then of course movies.
I have always loved the Disney movie and I normally love old English children's classic, but not this time.
I don't know... Maybe I wasn't so much in the mood of it as I thought I was. I only know that in many parts of the book I just wanted it to end. I liked the beginning and I liked some passages (e.g. in the mermaid's lagoon), but else... no.
Peter is a bit annoying and John and Michael are vague characters.
Some parts were ... confusing. Maybe because it isn't my own language and I didn't concentrate, but on the other hand - had it been more exciting I would have made a bigger effort.
But I won't deny the plot was original and if I was any younger I might have liked Peter even more. But right now I just didn't feel the magic...
