Is there ANY greater joy than to listen to Jim Dale narrate?! He could read off the phone book and I'd be completely pleased. His narration of such a classic was perfect ❤️❤️❤️
Much like Peter himself, this story is a classic. If you are a fan of the Disney Cartoon or the 2003 film, that is exactly what you are getting.
The story itself is a bit dark. People die. Peter as a character is fun loving, selfish, a brat and a bit of a jerk but that is the Peter we love.
Jim Dale for the final final time narrates Peter and his adventures. If you've listened to the Star Catcher series, you can kind of think of this as the final book....just keep in mind everyone has amnesia.
With a bit of a bittersweet ending. Peter Pan is a delight.
I never tire of hearing Jim Dale read a book. After listening to the Harry Potter books multiple times, I found Peter Pan and was throughly impressed all over again with Jim's reading ability. It is definitely a must-listen if you enjoy adventure stories read by a suburb narrator.
Speaker by day, listener by night.
I came across the 2003 Peter Pan movie and loved it, so I absolutely had to get this book.
Such a whimsical tale, told in such a lively voice, this audiobook is sure to satisfy your inner child. No matter how old I get, I'd always love to visit Neverland, admire "the flamingo with lagoons flying over it", fly with fairies and fool around with a pet wolf!
On a more serious note, the story invites you to reflect upon "the riddle of Peter's being": in deed, who is the boy who refuses to grow up? Is he merely the personification of childhood innocence, or a symbolism escapism for adults? If Wendy had come away with Peter forever, what would have become of her?
But no matter how you choose to interpret this story, it will definitely make a delightful listen, for the young, and the young at heart.
