Peter Pan is one of those histories you must read. I have seen some movies but, as usual, nothing compares to the book. J.M. Barrie was able to capture the children essence and transfer it to a character wich you will love.
The narrator, is not bad, but it lacks the emotion to make the critical parts as good as they are.
An old broad that enjoys books of all types. Would rather read than write reviews though. I know what I like, and won't be bothered by crap.
Yes, I would! Mr. Barrie has such a sly way with words and I'm sure I missed some of his meanings. It's a great story and I loved it!
When Peter comes back after many years and finds Wendy all grown up. I think we can all feel for him.
He does great characters. I especially loved his Lost Boys!
I'll Never Grow UP!
Loved this story, but it isn't the Disney version many people are used to. The story is closer to the musical by Mary Martin or Cathy Rigby. The story is fine for children but they won't get alot of what Barrie is trying to say about adults and children in an imaginative way.
Peter Pan is a wonderful story. I am amazed at how well written it is.
My 5 year old daughter has been listining to this in the evenings and it keeps her attention.
Peter Pan is not the playful Peter Pan you see in plays. Peter Pan is quite frightening and violent. The reader is wonderful. We will be putting this story away for a few years until my son is a bit older.
We were introduced to Jim Dale's talent through the Harry Potter series. He is absolutely wonderful reading this classic as well.
Excellent read. Too bad it was only 5 hours, barely a half work week drive for me. However, Jim Dale rocked and the it was like hearing the story again for the first time!
I was pleasantly surprised with Jim Dale's performance in this Audiobook. And of course the story itself is timeless and Always enjoyable for all ages.
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.
