    " Remarkably pleasant. Disney castrated this story. Read this and forget the movie. "

    " Reading this again- as an adult- was a revelation. Forget that Disney syrup- this was who Peter was meant to be- selfish and cruel and brave and loyal all at once- just as boys are. "

    " I read so many children's book for my class this semester and this was one I had never read and i've come away loving Peter and Barrie himself. "

    " This book was very interesting. As someone who virtually left fairy tales behind after she reached double digits, it was nice to return to them, even for a brief period of time. Peter Pan is a compelling story of a little girl, Wendy, and her two brothers, and their adventures in Neverland, where no one grows up. Wendy becomes the mother of an eclectic family of "lost boys," including Peter and her two little brothers. They have many adventures and experiences in their time there. The ending is interesting, and I completely forgot how the movie ended, so I had nothing to judge it off of. I would definitely suggest it as a classic! "

    " A contagious children story that I enjoyed reading. Wendy goes on an amazing adventure she's always dreamed of and meeting wonderful people and creatures along the way. A time less classic that I will never forget. Peter Pan reminds readers of the magic of being a child and how truly special those moments were. "

    " It's amazing how much gets lost when you adapt a book to a Disney cartoon. I never really understood the deep symbolism that is the story of Peter Pan until I read (or rather, listened to) the novel. On the one hand it is a very entertaining and amusing children's book, but on the other hand it's a commentary on the tragedy of childlike innocence being lost as a child becomes an adult. It's one of the few stories I've read that treats the transition into adulthood as a bad thing rather than a good thing. The adults in the story are all just as naive and silly as the children, but they have lost something that they had as children, and the implication seems (to me) to be that growing up is an act involving great loss and no real gain--an unbalanced, unfair trade that, unfortunately, human beings are doomed to reenact over and over. The most telling part of the novel are the final pages, in which (SPOILER ALERT) the Lost Boys lose the ability to fly as a result of leaving Neverland and realize too late that what they have given up is better than what they have gained, and--most tragic of all--Wendy grows to adulthood and is no longer able to travel to Neverland when Peter returns for her. There is hope in the form of Wendy's daughter, who does go off with Peter Pan and who never could have been born had Wendy not grown up, but the final scene--of Wendy watching forlornly, unable to accompany them as they fly off--is essentially a tragic one. "

    " This was one of my favourite bedtimes stories when I was a kid, and is still one of my favourite books today and will definitely read it to my kids. A classic for a reason. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 D.l. Price | 1/4/2014

    " This book is one of the original classics of the story Peter Pan. I read it as a child and I was hooked on the story. "

    " I really like the writing style of J.M. Barriemore than I thought I would. There are going to be some tricky things in teaching this book with sixth graders though. I highly recommend this audiobook though. Jim Dale is an amazing storyteller! "

    " I think everybody would say the same thing... "

    " A Beautiful story, wish I read it as child. "

    " I thought Peter Pan the book would be better than it was. The disney movie is my favorite and I love Neverland, but the book wasn't nearly as good as the movie! Sorry Mr. Barrie! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Benson | 10/27/2013

    " Really light hearted book. Even with all the meat inside, it was the bread--the beginning and the end of the book--and breadth that got me. Even though it's not thoroughly recognized as a classic, there's a rich timeless, reflective factor to this book that makes this book really cool. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alessandro Palumbo | 10/20/2013

    " Solo una favola per bambini? Non ne sono sicuro... Certamente provo sconcerto, forse raccapriccio nel sapere che l'autore di Peter Pan, per non veder soffrire la madre per la morte del fratello, decide di sostituirsi al fratello stesso, di fatto non crescendo mai e divenendo Peter Pan egli stesso. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Wanti Tia | 10/14/2013

    " my favorite fiction character of all time "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kally | 2/21/2013

    " Reading this to my son as his bedtime story. He's a little young to understand the meaning behind the writing but he enjoys the fantasy aspect of it. Also, he finds it hard to believe that anyone would name their dog 'Nana,' as that is what he calls one of his grandmothers. "

    " much different from the Disney classic. a bit violent. "

    " Peter Pan will forever be one of my favorite childhood or bedtime story. And reading it for myself, finally, just felt real and it was nice. "
