MY RATING: 4 Starts
THIS BOOK WAS SENT TO ME IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW!
Hook’s Daughter was quite a nice reading, I’m not going to say that I loved it because I didn’t, but I enjoyed it a lot… it is kind of a retelling of Peter Pan’s story, and even if I’m not the biggest fan of Peter Pan I can say that I liked this version of it !
I liked the way it was written, I liked the characters, I liked OVERALL the narrator… I really liked him, he was so funny and such an entertaining “character” that I really think that it is impossible not to like him.
Even if this book/story was written to be read by children I believe that anyone can read it, I’m not a child and I did read it… I think that everyone should read this kind of books once in a while because we all should remember what is like to be a kid, what is like to imagine other worlds…
So as I said before I’m not the biggest fan of Peter Pan or even of this book… BUT, once again, it was written to be read by children and I think that it is a really good book for them, it was quite entertaining, it was funny, it was a really fast reading… overall it was great, so I decided to give to it 4 starts, because that’s the score I think this book deserves.
