Excellent read. Too bad it was only 5 hours, barely a half work week drive for me. However, Jim Dale rocked and the it was like hearing the story again for the first time!
I was pleasantly surprised with Jim Dale's performance in this Audiobook. And of course the story itself is timeless and Always enjoyable for all ages.
What an incredibal story. I had never read the book, but I have always been a fan of the story. This audiobook really takes you there. If you have never read the book, or even if you have, this is a MUST for anybodys collection.
Jim Dale's performance perfectly captures the whimsy of the original Peter Pan. A fun, lively story which captures the essence of growing up and leaving childhood behind.
My name is Kira and I work as a librarian in utah. I love all kinds of books, but especially like fantasy and mystery.
Pretty high. When I was a kid, I couldn't get through this book, but listening to it with Jim Dale really brought it to life.
Anything by Jim Dale, his other Peter Pan stories.
Awesome. It was superb. I loved his voices and how he brought the characters to life.
Does laughing so hard I had to stop the audio to breathe count?
Peter Pan is one of those histories you must read. I have seen some movies but, as usual, nothing compares to the book. J.M. Barrie was able to capture the children essence and transfer it to a character wich you will love.
The narrator, is not bad, but it lacks the emotion to make the critical parts as good as they are.
J.M. Barrie + Jim Dale equals a truly delightful read. The story of Peter Pan is one for children and adults alike. The way Jim Dale read it brought the story even more to life and it left me wanting more. The way Barrie included himself as a character in this book is so fun and an enjoyable way to tell a story!
I have always liked the story of Peter Pan, but I had only seen the movies and play until I downloaded this book. I always felt that something was left out. Now that I have listened to the audio book version of the story, I realize that I should have read it long ago. I feel like I have found a part of my childhood that was lost and forgotten. If you enjoy listening to great stories you should definitely listen to this one.
Peter Pan is not the playful Peter Pan you see in plays. Peter Pan is quite frightening and violent. The reader is wonderful. We will be putting this story away for a few years until my son is a bit older.
We were introduced to Jim Dale's talent through the Harry Potter series. He is absolutely wonderful reading this classic as well.
