    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!

    "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.

    Story
    "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.

    Story
    "Jim Dale...Peter Pan... need I say more?"

    I bought this because Jim Dale narrated it and I realized I had never actually read the book. Jim Dale does not disappoint (of course) and the story is a great story for grownups. Listen and enjoy!

    Story
    "Not just a children's book."
    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.

    "I never new how great it was!"

    I grew up with Disney's Peter Pan, and never read the original story until this audio book. It's beautifully written (and read) and kept myself and my daughter completely entertained on a long road-trip last month. Highly recommend for imaginative types!

    "Not a fan of Peter Pan"

    The quality of this as an audiobook is of the best kind. Jim Dale is a extraordinary actor. However, I don't like this. I never liked the Disney version of this and I don't like this one. All that Wendy as mother stuff sends a very negative message to girls. And I found it a little weird. Many parts of this I found offensive and I'm not normally one for political correctness. I would not give this to a child to read. I had a hard time getting to the end of this. I read three other books while trying to finish this.
