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.
Magical, enticing, and breathtaking.
The famous line, "To die would be an awfully big adventure."
James Hook. He did a magnificent job with the voice!
I have to say, I was really nervous about purchasing this book on audible and listening to another person give voice to such iconic characters but Jim Dale did such an amazing job that I ended up getting more out of the book than I did when I read it myself.
I love how lively, and yet dark, this original Pan story can be!
Pirates who may not be the smartest, but are still killers.
Deadly wars between the Pirates and the Native inhabitants.
The reading was wonderful and the breadth of characters acted was superb!
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!
