    The year is 1902 - it's been 23 years since Peter and the Lost Boys returned from Rundoon. Since then, nobody on the island has grown a day older, and the Lost Boys continue their friendship with the Mollusk tribe and their rivalry with Captain Hook. Meanwhile, in London, Molly has married George Darling and is raising three children: Wendy, Michael, and John. One night, a visitor appears at her door; it's James, one of Peter's original Lost Boys.

    Story

    I started listening to the Peter and the Starcatcher books because I was looking for books narrated by Jim Dale. I loved listening to him read all the Harry Potter books and wanted more. He did a fantastic job with these stories.

    The Sword of Mercy, and all the other Starcatcher books are great fun. They are definitely children's books, but as an adult I still had fun returning to Neverland and hearing more about Peter. The first several Starcatcher books explain how Neverland came into being and how Peter became Peter. Those books are far enough back in time that there is no problems with continuity between them and the original Peter Pan book. My one issue with this 4th book is that Peter meets Wendy, John, and Michael as kids and thus it no longer makes sense why he meets them for the first time in the original story. But if you can suspend your disbelief then it's still a fun listen.

  • Confessions of a Shopaholic

    Sophie Kinsella's debut is a romp through the perils of shopping and spending, spending, spending! Becky can't resist a sale, and she's only a little overdrawn on her VISA. Readers will laugh aloud at Becky's retail adventures as she finds new and creative ways to relieve her increasingly credit card debt. Emily Gray's narration bounces along with Becky and her buying whims, while delivering a humorous account of what happens when credit goes bad.

    Would you try another book from Sophie Kinsella and/or Emily Gray?

    I would listen to another book narrated by Emily Gray, but I would not listen to another book by Sophie Kinsella.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Sophie Kinsella again?

    I picked this book because the movie version was so amusing. I was hoping to read the book and find more fun and amusement. What I found was a story that just went on way too long and there was not enough substance. This story was a lot more entertaining as a movie.
