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.
I love psychology, brain science, marketing, business start up books and some fiction.
The plot is of course so dreamy and fancy. But the narrator over dramatization ruined my experience. But it is worth the couple of hours!
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
