    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    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.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Peter Pan?

    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.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    No one favorite scene. I enjoyed Jim Dale's reading of the entire book.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    Very entertaining. Though again, having Jim Dale as the reader was the reason I decided to re-visit Peter Pan after all these years.

    What did you love best about Her Royal Spyness?

    The narrator, Katherine Kellgren. Her voices, for the various, characters were wonderful. And the characters, themselves, were terrific.


    What did you like best about this story?

    That it was a fun, easy listen on a long drive. Clever enough to keep my attention. Very funny at times.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Enjoyed the plot climax at the costume party. Though I admit I was already certain it was "Twistwen" who was responsible for the body in the bath tub.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    I haven't a clue. That's not my tag line......I really haven't a clue!


    Any additional comments?

    I'm already on the second book. This series should keep me happy on the road for quite some time.
