Just a cute fairytale about never growing up and growing up, make believe, killing pirates, snotty mermaids, jealousy, war, and a ticking gator.
This was fluffy, and my only complaint was that within the beginning of the story, Wendy kept trying to kiss Peter. I mean c'mon woman, you want to make out with the first boy to crawl through your window, have a little dignity. I suppose I cannot blame Tinker Bell's interference, I'm protective of my friends too, although she had ulterior motives.
I'd recommend this book if you want a blast from the past, and something easy and quick!
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?
Yes, in fact, I believe if I had to give an audiobook to someone who claimed not to like them this would be the one.
The book Peter Pan is an adventure fantasy that will be enjoyed by children while speaking to adults. I've thought about several books to compare it to, but the best comparison is to the movie "The Princess Bride." Everyone loves the story, and adults enjoy the meaning embedded in it.
I have been an Audible member for a decade, and I believe this audiobook may be my favorite presentation.
fantasy fun entertaining
all of it
It is great listening to Jim Dale. A great preformer
when the kids got back home safe
It was very different from the Disney animated movie, but still a fun read.
I bought this because Jim Dale narrated it and I realized I had never actually read the book. Jim Dale does not disappoint (of course) and the story is a great story for grownups. Listen and enjoy!
Anyone who enjoyed Jim Dale reading Harry Potter, will enjoy this audio book as well. I've already purchased the CD as a gift for a friend.
No one moment stood out. The entire story was so different than I remember as a child. I think I've enjoyed it far more as an oldster.
No one favorite scene. I enjoyed Jim Dale's reading of the entire book.
I didn't remember the book as much as I remembered the Walt Disney cartoon. But it has been almost 60 years since I first read it as a child. The book certainly has more violence and outright killing than the hollywood version for kids.
Very entertaining. Though again, having Jim Dale as the reader was the reason I decided to re-visit Peter Pan after all these years.
I grew up with Disney's Peter Pan, and never read the original story until this audio book. It's beautifully written (and read) and kept myself and my daughter completely entertained on a long road-trip last month. Highly recommend for imaginative types!
I really enjoyed the rich language and animated narrator. It took me back to a time of magical childhood fantasy.
The quality of this as an audiobook is of the best kind. Jim Dale is a extraordinary actor. However, I don't like this. I never liked the Disney version of this and I don't like this one. All that Wendy as mother stuff sends a very negative message to girls. And I found it a little weird. Many parts of this I found offensive and I'm not normally one for political correctness. I would not give this to a child to read. I had a hard time getting to the end of this. I read three other books while trying to finish this.
