Jim Dale does such a fantastic job narrating. Not only are his voices very distinctive, making it easy to follow which character is speaking, his sense of dramatic timing and addition of special effects noises bring the story to a whole new level.
I picked this story based on the reviews it had and was not disappointed! Learning the backstory of Peter Pan was just delightful. The story had good pace and the narrator was a perfect fit. Being an adult I sometimes crave a good read that doesn't have adult themes and this great little read really fit the bill! Give it a try, you won't be sorry. I can't wait for the next installment.
This is a great story of how Peter Pan, Tinkerbell and Neverland came to be. It is narrated by Jim Dale, who is one of the best narrators in the universe!! Every time a new part of the Peter Pan story's oriigin is revealed I was amazed! It has sword fights, mermaids, pirarates, a fairy and wonderful characters who I both loved, and loved to hat! This story is for everyone.. boys, girls and adults and children alike.
I plan on reading all of the books in this series! I cannot wait to be a part of Peter and Tinkerbell's adventures in the next 3 books!! Get this book...you will be glad you did!!
I love this series. It's compelling, imaginative, the characters are well drawn. I am an adult listener but adore a good, clever story like this with plot twists and turns, humor - enjoyable for all ages! Even if you didn't love Peter Pan, it's so fun!
Great job, very easy to listen to! Love that I know which character is speaking by his voice even before he says
Loved it. It's a great beginning to the Peter Pan story. Great to finally know where he came from. The story is great, very enjoyable listen. Jim Dale is outstanding. This book is good for young and old alike.
It's a great story. Everybody know the story of Peter Pan. This let you know how it all started
Peter was thrown overboard and started to fly for the first time
Yes. He changed his voice. Some of the characters sounded alike but you could still tell who was talking by the scene.
When Peter jumped without being pushed to Mister Grin
Several parts in the book was read wrong. Example: He said King instead of Queen. He read a few chapter titles wrong. I assume that the book is different in other countries or something. I like to read the book while listening to it. But when the reading is slightly different than the book, this can throw you off.
My son says: It's as good as Harry Potter and as exciting as Eragon.
My son says: Peter!...because he is brave and funny and thinks he's the boss and likes to be older than other kids he meets. He's funny.
My son says: Jim Dale is the BEST story teller ever! He knows how to create all the feelings of the characters and the action of the story. You feel like you are there....you wish you were. It's hard to turn off a book when he is reading it to you.
My son says: I laughed a lot and sometimes I was shocked.
My son says: I recommend this book. It was totally great.
i really enjoy listening to Jim Dale read and its a plus that this story is wonderful too.i have always loved the little boy never getting older story and i love the pirates! its got great action and lovely scary parts too.
Fantastic pre-quel to the traditional Peter-Pan story you're likely familiar with. The kids loved listening to it on recent roadtrip and can't wait for the next book, and amazingly enough, for the next long drive. Highly recommend as an entertaining adventure for the young as well as those whose birthday might suggest otherwise.
The british accent of the voice talent lended to the authenticity, but was a hard to follow at times - download the highest quality you can.
