This may not be the story you think you remember

After countless reductionist versions, it may be hard for some people to remember what J. M. Barrie's original story really was: a surreal, ironic, humorous, touching tale filled with weird details that no other writer would have dreamed of, and dry - and very English - social commentary.

Like so many other books which have been relegated to the ranks of "children's classics" and forgotten, this story is actually rather disturbing in some strange and marvelous ways - and I think it would be largely wasted on the young reader. Let them have the Disney picture book, and keep this gem for yourself.

Jim Dale is a superlative reader, who truly does justice to this strange, lapidary little piece. I recommend it without reservation to any reader/listener who will *pay attention* and see what's really there, and not the pastel wallpaper that revisionists have spread over the original work. I've listened to other versions by readers I respect and enjoy, but this one wins out over all of them: Jim Dale has got to the heart of the story that is really there, and he is mesmerizing in telling it.

Essential childhood reading

I never read this book as a child. Neither was it read to me and I thought that Peter Pan was a cartoo character until I was an adult. I missed out.

If you have children then buy the book and read it to them. If you can't or won't then the next best thing is to let Jim Dale read it to them for you. His delivery is excellent and carries just the right balance of restraint and enthusiasm.

An excellent presentation of a classic story.

Too graphic and just plain silly

J.M. Barry's story of the boy who wouldn't grow up has always enchanted me. However I have to say that the book has let me down. I know the films and TV versions never skirted the fact of the killing that happened on the island, but the book is just brutal. This story is quite graphic and vivid, I am only thankful Barry didn't go any further. Some of the things like peter tickling stars on his way to never land were just plain daft. This is not a book I would recommend to young or impressionable children. The only thing that made the whole thing bearable to listen to, and may induce me to listen to the story again, was the fact that Jim Dale read it.
