Peter Pan
Peter Pan | J M Barrie
The character of Peter Pan first came to life in the stories J. M. Barrie told to five brothers -- three of whom were named Peter, John, and Michael. Peter Pan is considered one of the greatest children's stories of all time and continues to charm readers one hundred years after its first appearance as a play in 1904.

This was a really fun book. I love it when Audible gets a full cast together for one of their Originals. In this one Tinker Bell was exceptionally entertaining when she kept calling Peter a stupid ass and Captain Hook was fantastic. There are some definite changes from the original (which is up next on my tbr) but still a great story 🐊

Finished this book today. Not sure what to make of it; ridiculous at points, yet tells a youthful imaginative tale at others times. Now to rewatch the Disney animated film and compare.

ljuliel I‘ve noticed that some of the old fairy tale type books really aren‘t super good, but the tv shows or movies they‘ve made of them make them better. This is one , others are Alice in Wonderland, and Wizard of Oz. All the books are a bit below par in my opinion,, but the magic of the movies have made them so much better. I rarely think that about books. 1mo
CrowCAH @ljuliel I agree, some of the pieces inspired by them are good. 1mo

I can see where some of the Disney‘s Peter Pan got its inspiration from.

Off to Neverland!

This was a nice way to start what is already a stressful work week. A full cast dramatization of a classic children's story, it makes me want to pull my copy of the complete tale off my shelves and read it. I'm familiar with the Disney version, but I've never read the original.

ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled I got this one too! Is it abriged? I was wondering how it compares to the book (which I haven‘t yet read!) 2mo
DGRachel @ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled It's a dramatization, not a full cast reading, so it's definitely an abridged version of the text. I checked Audible and it looks like most unabridged recordings of the book run nearly 6 hours. This recording is just a little over 3 hours. 2mo

A charming little audiobook, perfect for children at Christmas. I wasn‘t familiar with the story so it‘s been nice listening to this Audible dramatisation, although it‘s most certainly for youngsters rather than adults. Great performances all round and especially from Rupert Everett as Captain Hook. It sounds like they had great fun recording this ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Are you having a go at this one @batsy ?

batsy That's a lovely edition! I've fallen off the wagon with this challenge 🙈 Won't be taking part this month (don't have a copy). I'm going to check the schedule to see if I have the books for the next two months :) 4mo
Centique @batsy I‘ve always been a Peter Pan fan so this was just a good excuse to get a copy. 😉The printing on this paperback though is just a tiny bit off “square” with the page - which is annoying. That has happened to me once before with Book Depository. Oh well - not the biggest problem! 4mo

I probably wouldn‘t have liked this as much if Jim Dale didn‘t read it. I really didn‘t like Peter Pan. He was kind of a jerk. Tinkerbell was pretty awful too.

It does make me want to watch the Disney movie now though!

Peter Pan is one of those books that you can read again and again. It‘s fun, lighthearted and magical. I have always LOVED the idea of flying, and, well, “He can fly!" ! And the whole thing about NOT growing up is kinda appealing as well. 4.9 ⭐️

readingjedi Maybe it says something about me that I found the original J.M Barrie text to be ominous, snarky and at times downright weird. I found the narrative voice to be creepy and the whole thing rather death obsessed!!! 8mo
lover.of.the.classics @readingjedi Boys will be Boys. And Peter Pan is the only one that will stay that way forever. Boys enjoy playing rough. So I find no problem with it, plus Neverland is a land of make believe, everything is a game to Peter. And as for Hook, he is supposed to be evil otherwise why would they have to stop him? 8mo

Maybe I‘m just a Negative Nancy, but seeing this quote misquoted (mostly in tattoos) all the time drives me nuts. The more “geared towards children” productions turned it around to, “To live would be an awfully big adventure”; where in the book, Peter says, “to die...”

Both are beautiful, but I‘d love to see someone reference the correct quote for once 😓😅

It‘s been a long time since I‘ve read the tagged. I‘m not sure the 100+ year old story holds up. Overall, the framework & the premise still work, but the story gets bogged down in the middle & the characterization of the tribe is not PC for today.

Jim Dale, as always, does a fabulous job narrating.

In the meantime, I‘m at SeaTac about to catch a flight to DC & will be out of pocket for a bit.

Audiobook 2/6 for #BookFitnessChallenge

Caterina This was one of my first reads on #SerialReader and I was shocked. I couldn't believe anyone loves it... It's sexist and racist and so gory too! (The description of how Captain Hook uses the hook!! 😱) I would never give it to a child to read. I agree that it hasn't aged well. 9mo
Caterina Great job getting 1/3 of the way there with your book goal! You're right on track! 🙌 9mo
wanderinglynn @Caterina The play was originally written in 1904 and the novel adaptation in 1911. So that explains some of it. But you‘re right. In this case, I enjoy some of the movie adaptations far better than the book. 9mo
See All 7 Comments
Lindy @Caterina Many children‘s classics haven‘t aged well. Fortunately, there‘s lots of great new children‘s literature written by a broad spectrum of writers. Spread the word to parents and teachers that you know, because nostalgic adults are an impediment to getting better books into the hands of young people. [Stepping off my soapbox now.] 9mo
BookwormAHN Nice job 👏🏻 9mo
LibrarianRyan I have not been in SeaTac for years!! I used to live on Whidbey Island. I agree. I read this with a group of kids, and they were not impressed to say the least. It does not hold up. the story outline does, but not the original prose. 9mo

Peter Pan by J. M. Barrie, 1911. This is a classic tale of whimsy that really defines the modern fantasy genre. It‘s told colorfully and beautifully and really shows itself to be worthy of the classic status it has. It‘s sweet and brings the magic of imagination into the real world.
