I've always wanted to read this book, ever since I was little. :) So I finally bought it! :D I got this really pretty edition with a pretty cover of Peter and Tinkerbell, teheee.

I loved it! It was amazing. I love the story, and the plot. The writing style is a little heavy, but it's good. I like the old-fashioned-ness of it.

I like how the book is written as if J.M. Barrie is talking to us. Most of the time I don't like that kind of narration, but with Peter Pan it really works. It fits.

I LOVE the character Peter Pan. He's such a great character. I love how childish he is, how cocky, how oblivious to everyone around him. He's awesome.

I love the ending too, the whole circle pattern. It's very powerful.

All in all, Peter Pan is a great book, and basically the only classic I've liked so far.
