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 ⭐️⭐️⭐️

hannah-leeloo Don't forget the sequel Peter Pan in scarlet ❤️📚 3d
Ms_T @hannah-leeloo I haven‘t heard of that, I‘ll investigate! 3d

I thoroughly loved this #ChildrensClassicRead2019 ❤️ So much so I‘m going to use it in the spring as a book club book for my kiddos I do Bookclub a with .
I found these questions after looking for different types of discussion guides and this is what I‘ll use.

Look @TheBookHippie a little late but I‘m reading it now! #childrensclassicread2019

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 :) 2mo
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! 2mo
TheBookHippie It‘s so enjoyable!!! Sweetness. I need to read it for sanity 🤣❤️📖. 2mo
Centique @TheBookHippie reading it now and I totally agree! 😍 2mo

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!!! 6mo
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? 6mo

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. 7mo
Caterina Great job getting 1/3 of the way there with your book goal! You're right on track! 🙌 7mo
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. 7mo

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.] 7mo
BookwormAHN Nice job 👏🏻 7mo
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. 7mo

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.

Peter Pan by J M Barrie is a modern fantasy book that was published in 1904. This is a story about a boy named Peter pan who takes young Wendy and her siblings to Neverland. In the Neverlands Peter Pan is trapped by pirate Hook. The reason Peter Pan is in the Neverlands is because he was scared to grow up so he ran away.

I have some confusing and rather heavy feelings about this book.......but then again I‘ve grown old and it takes more effort to fly nowadays. On the upside this was on my TBR this year and I happen to find this beautiful edition this past weekend. I will most definitely seek out the collections. Our girls just because.....

readingjedi I always found the narrative voice problematic - it's creepy and downright weird! Gorgeous edition though. 9mo
TSellers It‘s the last two chapters that sealed my impression , but evidently the man had a pretty messed up relationship with his own mother. All the rights were given to the Great Ormandy Street Hospital Charity in London. This is a major source of funding for the charity. So every time you buy the boy who wouldn‘t grow up you help other children to be able to. 9mo

Thank you @GondorGirl for hosting this awesome #GiGiBookBox giveaway! For all the details head on over to the original post.

I have been thinking about this all day & after a lot of careful thought have come to the conclusion that Neverland from Peter Pan is my favorite book location. I love Neverland because it has pirates, mermaids, fairies, adventure, happiness & it is so beautiful there. As a kid I always wished I could fly off to Neverland.

GondorGirl I love your choice! Neverland always fascinated me as a kid. ❤ 9mo

Just finished the audiobook on my road trip today. I really enjoyed this book, and had the beautiful eerie feeling of having read it or heard it before- and not just because of the Disney movie. Such a grand reflection on childhood, such a uniquely written book. I love love love the clever and beautiful style of writing, and the lovable knowable characters- and love that their flaws are so prominent to their story. Forever a favorite.
