Jim Dale's voice. It is like music to my ears.
It was fun and easy to listen to.
When Peter saved the chief.
It made me laugh.
I got this one because I like to listen to Jim Dale but the story was really good.
Listening to books is the best way to picture them
Anything read by Jim Dale is better than print He bring the characters to life in an indiviualistic way
In the end when Peter named the island neverland it kind of tied things together
I've listened to all of the Harry Potter book done by Jim Dale he is so amazing i loe how he uses a different voice for each character its wonderful and consistant
"Before the Disney Peter Pan...."
I’m a creator, leader, writer, Christian, humorist, multi-tasker, filmie, foodie, environmentalist, daydreamer, traveler and entrepreneur, to name a few.
Really liked it, and saw the Broadway play so I wanted the full context.
Loved hearing about where Neverland and the Lost Boys came from. Lots of humor with lots of drama.
I would listen to anything Jim Dale narrates. He is simply amazing. If he reads the dictionary, I'll download it.
Looking forward to the rest of the series.
Jim Dale is by far my favorite narrator. He brings each character to life with the magical tones of his voice, lending to great story telling! But, by far with this book, he had a great story to work with! I'm a huge Peter Pan fan, but was unsure about these stories since they are a reworking of the story and they are geared towards YA, but I loved it regardless. Something I'm keeping to share with my kids some day.
My 11 yr old son and I LOVED this audio book! The narrator is one of my absolute favorites. The story is captivating and I was pleasantly surprised with how the author tied all of the pieces together. The ending was very good! Great Book, Highly Recommend!!
Yes. It's well written, brilliantly narrated and offers something special to the child's heart in each of us.
Jim Dale's voice resonnates honesty and sincerity. His voice is both comforting and entertaining as well.
This is an addition to the fantasy books of childhood, somewhat similar to the Harry Potter series, and the Narnian Chronicles. It presents a version of the origins of Peter Pan in an original story.
The chapters are short enough for reading aloud at bedtime, and the story is not as dark and violent as many of the later Harry Potter stories. The quality of the story is not in the same league as the Narnia Chronicles, but is engaging and a good listen for a long car trip
I would recommend this book for kids, and adults who are interested in children's literature. The reader did try to convey the excitement of the story, and maintain the voices of various characters.
I love clean books of all sorts. Love mysteries, fantasies epic to kids stories, fairy tales, romances, humor, and historical fiction
I loved this book! My little boys finished it long before I did and they kept asking me, "Mom! Where are you in the story?! Are you finished yet?" It was a lovely fairytale turned novel that we all enjoyed. We loved Dave Barry when he was writing columns for the paper and this book proves that it was okay that he quit. We didn't like the idea at all initially. This book has just left me with a broad grin that I can't seem to shake. I really enjoyed it, everything from the Croc to Cap'n Hook to mermaids to pirates are all explained and the answer is closer to home than you'd think. How Peter got to be Peter Pan is a great story for kids of any age. My kids like to turn off the sound on the computer games and turn on the audio books. I have to shoo them out of the house sometimes, because they just want to keep listening. The next book in the series I'm going to get in paper form so that my youngest will read. He needs something motivating, and exciting. I think this is just the ticket.... but I may get the next one on audible for me. If you love the Peter Pan story, you can't go wrong with this one. This would make a great audio book to take on a family trip. I hope you'll spend the credit or buy it outright and enjoy!
Books are where I can clear my head and fall into another world for a short while.
I love this new perspective on Peter Pan. Even if you are not a fan of Peter Pan you have not met him until you have read Peter and the Starcatchers. The story is much more interesting, detailed, and different than you think.
