(Performance 4/5 stars) Narrated by Victor Warren
Run Time: 5 hrs and 29 mins
The original and definitely not the Disney version of the Peter Pan classic. A boy chases his shadow into a girl’s room and ends up inviting her and her brothers on an adventure.
- I’d never heard the original. My only previous impressions were the Disney illustrated movie. Basically, every change they made to the story is for the better.
- This version is dark, and Peter’s an arrogant jerk. The story narrator declares this pretty quickly. The characterization is spot on for that, but it made him not that fun to hear about. This is the storybook hero … and I hate him because he is legitimately forever a spoiled, selfish, idiot child. Oh, he’s clever, but that’s about the extent of his redeeming qualities.
- 4/5 stars The performance is solid. The voices are distinguishable. The reading is smooth and correctly inflected.
- Not sure how this became a classic. It’s not very kid-friendly. Way more outright murders and death by meaningless fights going on.
- It’s certainly fantasy. There are a lot of excellent world-building elements.
If you want to see where it all began for Peter Pan, go for it. This is a nice reading of it.
