It's worth listening to! It's quick and enjoyable. Who can't relate to Alice's adventure in Wonderland? The narrator has a lot of different characters to portray and does a pretty good job of doing it.
I recently took a trip that required many hours of flying, and I'm a nervous flyer. Whenever we hit some "rough air" I put my headphones on and listened to this classic story. The narration was soothing and made me forget how bumpy the flight was.
The only thing I would change is the volume control. Sometimes the noise around me was almost louder than the audible volume control could match.
I also used this audible to drown out my friend's extremely loud snoring, as we shared a cabin on a cruise ship for 6 days! Because the background noise wasn't as loud as in the plane it worked great!
What more can be said of a book second only to the Bible in copies in print. Its success is its own review, and this audio version does it justice. For a treat, get the facsimile of the original, hand-written "Alice's Adventures Underground" that Dodgson completed at the insistence (pestering?) of its inspiration: Alice Pleasance Liddell.
No doubt the general idea of the story is a good one, but if you're used to the myriad of adaptions that have been made for the big screen I suggest you stick with those. I personally find Alice's character annoying and while the characters are intriguing I don't care for the main character. The narration is excellent and perhaps that's the one redeaming quality for this book.
Although I feel the story of Alice in Wonderland is a bit too
Yes, I like most of Mr. Carroll's stories, particularly Chronicles of Narnia.
No, it's not possible to listen to something this long all in one sitting... but I do have a :30 commute to-and-fro daily, where I looked forward to listening to the next installment.
I am a hairstylist that enjoys the outdoors. I love listening to books as I fall asleep. I rode a Harley, Drive na RV, and cut beautiful flowers to put in my home. Give me piece and quiet, Give me friends and fun. I choose to be happy and enjoy life.
I had down loaded for my grandson age 7 hoping he would enjoy this story but it did not keep his attention hopfully I can find one that he would enjoy
