I can't believe I've been alive this long and read so many books but never read this one. I'm sure my mom read it to me when I was small because it's in her journal but I don't remember and although I know the Disney version, I'm glad I revisited this unique work of fantasy.
it's a compelling tale that is a psychedelic trip to another dimension and back. After reading the original, it's easy to see how all the film adaptations seem to differ so dramatically from each other.
it's a quick, funny, nonsense ride.
the performance was very good.
the narrator was fantastic! bringing each character to life and remembering what voice he gave each. I'm glad I waited till I was an adult and listened to him tell the tale
I really enjoyed B.J. Harrison's reading of Alice. He did an excellent job. That said, some lines get very loud. I couldn't tell if it was Harrison yelling in some parts or if it was just a poor recording, but be mindful of the volume when he does some of his voices (ex. the griffin). The story itself isn't one of my favorites but the story has nonetheless had a profound impact on literature and culture and should be a story we all familiarize ourselves with.
It's always too soon to write a fair review of a great book when they always keep you thinking. 4 & 5 stars are worth repeat listenings.
Better than the movie.
Audible is the perfect format.
If you thought you never liked or understood this story, listen to this BJ Harrison narration, he brings her to life.
So glad I gave it a chance, entertaining for all ages.
I enjoyed the story. The performance was good except for the moments when the narrator reads quietly and suddenly shouts some characters' lines. In order to not be startled out of my skin, I had to keep the volume low, missing portions of the story (especially Alice's encounter with the queen).
I am a goldsmith & jewellery designer from South Africa and an avid reader of SF&F, science, psychology, philosophy and classics.
I'm all about the bargain hunting. This was a good recording with excellent narration for a really good price. Loved listening to it.
