Editorial Reviews

Why we think it's Essential: This is a rare instance of two outstanding recordings of the same source material being considered for this list of essentials. But while we all enjoyed Jim Dale's enthusiastic performance, it was Tim Curry who most captivated us with his rendition of this classic children's tale. Curry's ability to evoke sheer childhood joy one moment and hide-under-the-sheets menace the next creates a far richer Peter Pan than Disney ever dreamed of. Ed Walloga

Publisher's Summary

"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.

Simply wonderful

Tim Curry breathes life into this wonderful classic children's story. His voice gives such warm, comic expression to the snooty grown-ups, the treacherous-yet-stumbling pirates, the pouty fairy Tinkerbell, the nervous or excited children, and of course, the cheeky, indignant Peter Pan. Even if you're intimately familiar with the story, Curry's telling is memorable and well worth the listen.

It soars ...

Peter Pan was one of the first books I downloaded from Audible (the version read by Donal Donnelly). It was so bad a recording that I was questioning the wisdom of my 2-book-a-month commitment.

Fortunately, that disappointment has not been encountered again. And here was an absolutely divine recording of this classic story (if you only know Peter Pan from Disney, you owe it to J.M. Barrie, and yourself, to give a listen).

Tim Curry does a brilliant job reading the story, and the recording is -- in all other ways -- first rate. I'd not listened to other Curry reads, but after this I'll be looking carefully at anything that has been or might be released with his narration.
