What the Critics Say

"By far the most charming and clever reimagining of the Boy Who Never Grew Up story that I have ever encountered. Readers of all ages, prepare yourselves for a very big adventure." (Terry Brooks)
"Peter David sees the world a bit differently from everyone else - strangely, wonderfully, stunningly differently. Reading Tigerheart gave me the feeling of walking a comfortably familiar road, but seeing things from angles I never knew existed. A beautiful, delightful story." (R.A. Salvatore)

    Sometimes the appropriate response to reality is to go insane.

    "An interesting retelling of Peter Pan"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this to most of my reader friends. Peter Pan is such a timeless, classic tale, and it's fun to read different interpretations on the story. Many of the readers I know appreciate seeing various writers' takes on the same story that we grew up with. It's fascinating to see what they do with such an old tale.


    Have you listened to any of Simon Vance’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I've listened to many performances by Simon Vance, and I have to say that he is one of my favorites. This book made me realize how consistent and talented he was with his reading whether he's narrating a historical mystery or an imaginative retelling like this this one.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    It was very hard not to want to listen to this in one sitting. I usually have to be doing something while listening to audiobooks like cleaning or knitting, but this story kept me very still while I was reading it. I listened to it in large chunks at a time because it was enthralling.


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed this book more than I thought I would. I was a little apprehensive at first that I might find it too juvenile for my tastes, but that wasn’t the case at all. Peter David managed to make this book feel like a child who is on the cusp of adulthood. It was both naïve and worldy, innocent and experienced. It was truly an amazing, whimsical story with tones of darkness.

    "I don't believe, I don't believe, I don't believe"

    I don't believe this is Peter David's best and I don't believe Peter Pan needed to be rewritten. I have only ever read the first chapter of the original Peter Pan and of course watched the Disney Cartoon, which like all Disney Cartoons are nothing like the books. I am not sure what age group this is written for and it is not Gregory Maguire.

    There are some good parts to the book and at times it has a Terry Pratchett feel to it. For instance there is an Indian named "Dog Licking himself". There is another character whose name is on the label of his shirt, "Irregular".

    I got interested in Peter David after reading Q-Squarred, a Star Trek Next Generation book. It is one of my favorite books and I don't normally read Star Trek books. Audible has the abridged version and I normally don't suggest abridged version, but this is so good I recommend it. Because Peter David has two first names, when you search for him you will get 36 books of which he is only the author of ten.

    If you are looking for Peter Pan, get the original. If you want a cool retelling get Greg Maguire's "Wicked". This is the retelling of the Wizard of Oz from the point of view of the Witch. It is so good that there is a Broadway Play.
