I'm sure the print editions of this book are perfectly good, but the Kindle edition is corrupted and has a chance of crashing your Kindle (I have a Kindle Paperwhite wifi). The crash isn't permanent, but does lock it up for a good 5+ minutes, and sometimes requires a hard reboot to get out of, after which you have to navigate carefully to avoid opening the title and crashing your kindle again.

An error message on the Kindle suggested deleting the title and re-downloading it from the cloud (assuming it was just a corrupted copy), but when I did so, the fresh copy behaved the same way, and took me a couple more reboots before I could delete it again.

Luckily, since the content itself is in the public domain, alternate versions of the book abound, all at around $1. I downloaded this other edition, and so far it's working great: Peter Pan

J. M. Barrie adapted his famous play, "Peter Pan," into a novel form, I suppose, for those who, for whatever reason, don't like a visual presentation of a great story. But don't be fooled, either. While the play sings more the praises of childhood and the grand use of imagination to fight Indians and pirates, the novel is less happy and rather than praising children for using imagination, seems more to chastise parents for stifling their children's use of it. Still a great story, but it is not the children's tale you might be expecting.

There's so much more than the Peter Pan we've heard from Disney
Also, the autor has a beautiful kind of writing and there's a lot of quotes from the book that are now engraved in my mind
This books really makes you feel chilhood nostalgia in such an incredible way... It has such a deeper meaning it'll soon make you realize it's not at all a tale for children!
i own it at home and i've read it at least twice this year

There is no comparison between the colourless, lame Disney rip-offs of this story and the original. The original is literature of the highest calibre, for adults too. I realized when I read it with my daughter that I had never actually read the original.

It is one of the most insightful explorations of mother-son, mother-child relationships I have ever read, and transcends the Edwardian time period in which it was written. The insights are universal. It does of course, also deal with the timeless theme of growing up, and whether we would really ever not want to do that!

In a few respects, it might not seem politically correct today (the Lost Boys actually do kill pirates, and Tinker Bell regularly calls Peter Pan "a silly ass") but it is more than compensated for by its psychological depth. It's a bit like the best Hollywood animated features these days... many funny side jokes and observations in it for the parents as the basic story line is for kids.

The illustrations in this version are also lovely. This was the "best Peter Pan" illustrated version as recommended on a parenting site.

Am so excited about this purchase. Wasn't sure what to expect buying a used hardcover book, but other than the tiniest bit of wear to the top and bottom of the spin, I'd swear it was new!
Can't wait to dive into this classic!

By Steven R. McEvoy HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWER on Dec 7 2008
Format: Hardcover
This was an interesting book, full of adventure but also has a more serious side about the need to grow up and grow in wisdom. It makes us realize the consequences of our actions and also the importance of family and friends.

The questions it left unanswered for me were:
-What school is it that Hook went to? What is known for its slouch and walk?
-The question of fairies that are unsure of their sex? Androgynous like angels?
-Forget fairies and you kill them the power of naming or unnaming

A great read for children of all ages, and if you like Peter Pan then check out 'Capt. Hook' by J.V. Hart for an introduction to Hook as a young man.

(First written as Journal Reading Notes in 1999.)
