Alice's adventures, funny, inventive and disturbing, have fascinated children and adults alike since their publication. The White Rabbit, the Mad Hatter, the Queen of Hearts and the Cheshire Cat (and, of course, Alice herself) all have something "Curiouser and curiouser!" to say in this new unabridged multi-cast recording. A delightful fantasy down the rabbit hole.

I found this reading to be wonderful. Instead of one narrator with a few voice characterizations, the different characters voiced by different people is MUCH more entertaining. I was going to download the version narrated by Jim Dale, since I really enjoyed his work on all of the Harry Potter audiobooks, but, after I listened to all of the audio samples for this book, to me, this one was the best. AND, the same cast of voices are in "Through The Looking Glass", the sequel to this book, of which I will be downloading at a future date. I would recommend this recording to anyone, but I would still encourage you to listen to all of the audio samples. No matter which narrator you choose, the story itself is still a magical classic!
Of course Lewis Carroll's story was great, I expected that- but what was truly amazing was all the different voices that brought this story to life! I know I will listen to this classic again and again.
I wish the Audible.com samples were longer or that I had paid more attention before I bought this one. The narrator reads descriptions and then other voices come in with the lines of the characters. After each character speaks, the narrator says "she said" or "he said." I found it very irritating. Didn't finish it.
This group of narrators made Alice in Wonderland come alive. Each character's voice brought a different element to the story and eliminated the monotony of listening to one story teller. Definitely an enjoyable listen.
An avid reader, who also loves to listen.
A great story and the book is a classic but nothing can compare to the visual effects produced on the big screen.
