Reviews Rated 3 out of 5 by Maria from Beautiful writing You'll have to forgive my ignorance of the Peter Pan universe, I have only ever seen the Disney film and that was ages ago, so I actually remember very little about Peter Pan, with the exception that he's the boy that never grows up.
I didn't remember who Tiger Lily was at all, but this story basically focuses on the love story Tiger Lily has with Peter before Wendy shows up. The story is narrated by Tinkerbell, who can't speak, but follows Tiger Lily around and is a little bit of an omniscient narrator since she can flit back and forth and spy on all the characters.
First of all, the writing is beautiful! Props to Jodi Lynn Anderson, this is the first of her books that I've read and I was really impressed with the writing. I never really cared for Tinkerbell in the film, but she makes a damn good narrator. In some ways this is a coming of age story. Tiger Lily has always been a bit of an outcast in her village and when she saves an Englishman who washes up on shore she becomes even more of a pariah because the villagers are scared of catching the "aging disease" from him since they never die of old age.
When she is betrothed to marry a mean villager named Giant, Tiger Lily starts spending more time away from the village and meets Peter and the lost boys and they all become very much enamoured to one another. Peter is impetuous, rash, and often unreasonable; he has a need to always be the strongest and the smartest.
As the leader of the lost boys, he takes on a lot of responsibility in taking care of the boys, but he is also very lonely. He has been a boy for a very long time and you do get the sense that he is ready to grow up. Tiger Lily is very much a young girl. She also makes rash decisions and doesn't think too much about the consequences of her actions.
She loves her village and Tik Tok, the shaman who found and raised her, but she also yearns for more. She doesn't want to be trapped in a marriage to Giant and spend forever cooking and cleaning for him. Peter enables her escape into a new world where there are no rules.
She wants to be a part of Peter's world, but she also finds it impossible to leave her village behind. I liked that the characters in this novel had so much depth. I didn't really like Peter, but I liked how Anderson wrote all of these characters and captured their essence.
There is definitely tragedy in this story and it is incredibly heartbreaking. The characters are all looking for and needing different things and yet nobody can be what the other person needs them to be. There are several stories going on at once and you can very much feel the era of change that is upon the island.
The world is progressing, but Neverland has always been a place onto itself. The Englishman eventually integrates himself into the village and pushes christianity on the villagers, shaming the villagers for their false idols and Tik Tok for dressing in women's clothes. It's hard to watch the villagers forsake their traditional spirits and way of life, but it's equally upsetting to witness the ignorance that has flourished in the village for years.
It's a very interesting story. I think I'm probably at a 3. It's a bit slow moving in the beginning and I never really got super into it. The writing was definitely my favourite part and how heartbreaking the story is. I really did grow to love these characters and I really felt for their hardships. Date published: Magical, heartwarming, yet heartbreaking love story.
It was beautiful. Rated 5 out of 5 by shubes from Heartbreakingly good it was magic and first love and good intentions gone bad. Rated 4 out of 5 by Shannon from Magical and understated This was so subtly beautiful. A very character-driven story, this sort-of retelling of Tiger Lily's story in the world of Peter Pan left me heartbroken, but happy for having read it.
Told from the point of view of Tinkerbell, a mute fairy who can witness but not truly influence events. Rated 5 out of 5 by Widad from Beautiful book! This is one of those books that I will forever hold close to my heart.
I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys fairy tales, fantasy, classic spin-offs, and just a really sad but amazing story. The book is beautifully written and extremely hard to put down. It's mainly fantasy a spin-off of Peter Pan but focused on Tiger Lily , but part of the reason I loved it so much is because of all the real life themes in there that are still relevant in today's world such as colonialism, gender identity, rape, suicide, growing up.
Overall, amazing book! Rated 5 out of 5 by Ellie from Absolutely Perfect This is probably my favourite book of all time. I teared up and I swooned. We don't even get a POV from either Tiger Lily or Peter but you can still tell how much they love one another and how much they want to be together but just can't for their own reasons.
There's so much heartache underneath everything, but it makes everything that much more meaningful and heartbreaking. This is so magical and just so beautiful, I can't think of a reason why people shouldn't give this beautiful story a chance.
Anderson perfectly captured the spirit of one of my favourite tales, and at the same time, managed to create something completely imaginative and new. With characters that came alive off the pages, a plot that left me breathless and an ending that captured a piece of my heart forever, Tiger Lily is the Peter Pan retelling I never knew I always wanted.
