Peter Pan (version 2)


Read by LibriVox Volunteers

(4.3 stars; 29 reviews)

In both the play and the novel, Peter often visits the "real world" of London to listen in on bedtime stories told by Mary Darling to her children. One night, Peter is spotted, and while trying to escape, he loses his shadow. On returning to claim his shadow, he wakes Mary's daughter, Wendy Darling. When Wendy succeeds in re-attaching his shadow to him, Peter takes a fancy to her and invites her to Neverland to be a mother to his gang of Lost Boys, the children who are lost in Kensington Gardens. Wendy agrees, and her brothers John and Michael go along. The dangerous and magical flight to Neverland is followed by many adventures.

Reviews

Atrocious 1st reader

(3 stars)

I only managed 10 minutes of this version of the book due to the 1st reader. Oh my goodness, take a breath please! She reads so fast, every paragraph is literally churned out in one swoop. There is no feeling of emotions as she reads and the listener isn't given enough time to process what has been said. Very monotone.

(5 stars)

So much better than the other versions!!

much better

(5 stars)

Better than the other peter pan books, readers are piety clear and don't read too quickly.

Well done

(4 stars)

The reader in the first couple of chapters speeds through the lines way too fast, all other readers did a great job though!

this version isby fat the best

(5 stars)

The readers in this version are clear and do not speed through the text.
