    Story
    "Wonderful history, no so good narrator"

    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.

    Story
    "An adult fairy tale!"
    Would you listen to Peter Pan again? Why?

    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!


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

    When Peter comes back after many years and finds Wendy all grown up. I think we can all feel for him.


    What does Jim Dale bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He does great characters. I especially loved his Lost Boys!


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

    I'll Never Grow UP!


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    Story
    "We were stunned by how violent the story was."

    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.

    "Jim Dale is excellent"

    We were introduced to Jim Dale's talent through the Harry Potter series. He is absolutely wonderful reading this classic as well.

    "Peter Pan"

    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!

    "Not just a children's tale"

    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.

    Story
    "Growing up is hard to do!"
    Any additional comments?

    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!

    Story
    "Couldn't Stop Laughing"
    Where does Peter Pan rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    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.


    What other book might you compare Peter Pan to and why?

    Anything by Jim Dale, his other Peter Pan stories.


    What about Jim Dale’s performance did you like?

    Awesome. It was superb. I loved his voices and how he brought the characters to life.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Does laughing so hard I had to stop the audio to breathe count?


    Any additional comments?

    A must-read.

    "Wonderful Story; Exceptional Reading"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    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.


    What other book might you compare Peter Pan to and why?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    I have been an Audible member for a decade, and I believe this audiobook may be my favorite presentation.
