Listening to the original story that has inspired so many storybooks and cartoons is a delightful treat. And this performance by Samuel West is superb. From the opening passages West’s charismatic voice draws listeners to immediate attention. He delivers deliciously imaginative character voices--Wendy, Hook, Smee, Peter and each of the boys and pirates. West’s brilliant storytelling brings out the more subtle side of Barrie’s enduring classic, not just the characters, but also the strong sense of fair play and personal virtue. The usual superb selections of music and a smooth abridgment make this family listening not to be missed. R.F.W. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN 97]
