It isn t you it s me You are a perfectly nice book and I m sure there are lots of readers out there who will love you for the book that you are You and I are just not meant to beFor me Alias Hook started out uite good in the beginning but as the story progressed my interest in the story declined and it took every ounce of my being just to continue Not that the book is badly written it wasn t just my cup of tea The idea was great Captain Hook the great villain in Neverland isn t really the great villain Instead he is stuck there has been for 200 years and it is Peter Pan that is the actual bad boy Then one day a woman arrives in Neverland why is she there Who sent herThe book isn t bad I liked parts of it I liked the idea that Hook is the victim and Peter Pan is the one that is tormenting him How fun is there to be stuck in Neverland immortal while the crew is mortal and Pan and his boys kill them off and new grown ups arrive to join the crew on the ship Not bloody fun I would imagine But I just couldn t commit to the story My heart wasn t in it And I really really wanted to like it Oh well I guess not every book is for meThe only thing working really well for me in the book was that I imagined Jason Isaacs as Captain Hook Thank you Netgalley for providing me with a free copy for an honest review

Alias Hook

Ook And in the pirate captain himself she begins to see someone far complex than the storybook villainWith Stella's knowledge of folk and fairy tales she might be Hook's last chance for redemption and release if they can break his curse before Pan and his warrior boys hunt her down and drag Hook back to their neverending game Alias Hook by Lisa Jensen is a beautifully and romantically written adult fairy ta. I picked this up because I m one of the seemingly few people who ve read Jensen s previous novel Witch From the Sea which was a highly entertaining historical fantasy of the swashbuckling life Here she continues on with the pirate theme writing a riff on Peter Pan from the point of view of Captain HookI have to admit that I had my doubts about the premise Stories based in another author s world are often suspect there are so many ways in which it can go horribly wrong Probably due to my attitude it took me a little while to get into the book but then it fully won me over Captain Hook the story posits was Captain Hookbridge a wealthy 17th century rake who lived a cruel and dissolute life as a privateer until the curse of a woman he d wronged sent him into the Neverland Trapped and unable to die he endures endless years as the nemesis of Peter Pan that JM Barrie s stories introduced us all to But one day the unthinkable happens an adult woman is found in Neverland Parrish is escaping the trauma she endured as a nurse during WWII but no one in Neverland is prepared for what her arrival might meanPeter Pan is a particularly difficult story to work with I think because it has so much about it to love while simultaneously being deeply problematic from a modern point of view I feel that in Alias Hook Jensen succeed in capturing the magic that readers such as myself remember from childhood while simultaneously creating a romantic adventure for adults which also has a lot to say about what it actually means to grow up Jensen s message about maturity specifically manhood is one that a great many people today could stand to take to heart As a child Barrie s Peter Pan worked for me The idea of never growing up was undeniably attractive And as an adult Alias Hook worked for me It shows the limitations and heartlessness of aspects of childhood her Pan is a dangerous tyrant in all his innocence discusses the problems caused when people don t learn and grow with the years and shows the possibility of a richness to life that children have not yet glimpsed The conclusion is sweet and satisfying full of the possibility of healing and redemption without being overly sentimentalI m glad to see that although it might ve taken uite a while Jensen s been picked up by a major publisher Hopefully tales of the sea will be forthcoming Advance copy of this book was provided by NetGalley Many thanks for the opportunity to read as always my opinion is my own
