"All children, except one, grow up."
And so begins the story of one of the most beloved characters in children's literature, Peter Pan. J.M. Barrie's classic tale, completely unabridged, features a boy who refuses to grow up, Tinker Bell the fairy, and the Darling children: Wendy, John, and Michael. Their great adventure begins on the night that Peter flies into the Darling home looking for his shadow and teaches Wendy, John, and Michael how to fly with him back to Neverland, where adventures happen every day.

Curry's voice for Hook is delightful and gravelly and perfect. The book has few surprises since it is a classic, but the reading was good. I enjoyed this and would recommend it to others.
You can never go wrong with Tim Curry, much less Peter Pan. Perfect combination!!! For children - a magical story, and adults - a blast from the past!! Highly recommend!!
Peter Pan is unique but provides the same magical, mystical atomosphere like Harry Potter.
Tim Curry's voice is the key!!! He is AMAZING!!!
It gave me a sense of wonder, made me feel like a child again, in a good way. A world of possibility ahead, adventure around every corner.
Excellent audiobook!!! Highly recommend!!!
This is a great and unique story. Everytime it seems to stray from childrens story to hint at something more indepth, it skillfully pulls itself right back....and usually in a very childish manner. It's nonsensical and exciting. Makes you regret that you ever grew up, but then makes your forget for awhile that you ever did. Beautiful and fun book.....definently an all time great classic.
Tim Curry's narration is good, but perhaps not as good as it could be. It was not a bad narration, but it was not spetactular either....which was a let down. In retrospect, the version read by Jim Dale would probably been a better choice to more fully enjoy this magical book.
I didn't like the guys voice who read the book. The real story of Peter Pan is different than the Disney one. It's sweet and worth knowing.
