Other Side of the Mirror # 44 – Off to Neverland

By  | 

Another book club episode! This time we discuss J.M. Barrie’s Peter Pan. Peter Pan – a selfish, impulsive boy who is also generous and brave. Peter longs for a mother figure, but wants that mother to meet his idea of perfection.

We think this is an obvious paralell to Henry, who holds other characters, including his mothers, to standards they have a hard time living up to. Topics include: Is anyone on the show really Wendy? The mysteries of Barrie’s portrayal of Hook, and how Once’s Hook stacks up. The idea of coming-of-age and Peter Pan, how do we see the show going to Neverland and more!

Plus feedback from Anika and Timespacer dissect Henry a bit more, while Sarah and Erin tell us what they did and didn’t like from Welcome to Stoybrooke. Check out the show notes on othersideofthemirror.com for links to Carey’s website, book series, etc.
