    "Such a good narrator!!!"

    I am not going to review this book because just about everyone knows it by now. I had to review the audio book though because this is one of the best narrators I have ever heard. My first and favorite reading that BJ Harrison did was one of the Jeeves books by Wodehouse. This one was just as good and I loved hearing the characters brought to life, it is quite entertaining. I like to listen to audiobooks when I am going to sleep and this reading of a classic is one of my favorite. I can't even count the number of times I have listened to this book.

    Absolutely. Alice is a classic


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Terrible voice for reading

    "Love"
    What did you like best about this story?

    It is truly weird.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, twice.


    Any additional comments?

    I became curious after hearing commentary on Carrol's' math roots but picked up the book for my youngest daughter. Oh my God, I was floored by the originality in content. Especially in Sci-fi so many stories try to create an original world but none compare to this. I loved it.

    "Narration was not what I really wanted"
    How could the performance have been better?

    I really wanted a narrator with more expression...I already had text to speech on my Kindle, and this wasn't much better. I also don't consider a podcast "professional" narration.


    Any additional comments?

    I am now trying to add a different narration to a different version of the book, and this one keeps being the default. Very frustrating.

    "lovely children's tale"

    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

    "Left too much to the imagination"

    The book was so choppy with the written word alone that it needed a performance with some pauses. The narrator had a wide variety of voices but it just lacked necessary pauses. Lastly, there was very little written describing the explorations in this alternate world. Any movie made about this has seriously enhanced the Wonderland.

    "Great speaker"

    No point in explaining the book. However the speaker did an amazing job. I do wish they cut off the podcast notice at the beginning and end though.

    "A classic read poorly"

    Alice is one of the great classics of children's literature but I cannot recommend this version. The narrator is wildly over-emphatic - listen how WHACKY and ZANY this is - and appears to be pitching this subtle satire, written by an Oxford don, at the under fives. It's very easy to spoil humour by trying too hard to make it funny instead of just letting the jokes emerge naturally which is what happens here.
    Very disappointed.
    Possibly this is one of those cases where a book is seen differently on each side of the Atlantic and this is how the USA perceives the book: in which case I'd love to hear a UK English version: Stephen Fry or Alan Bennett could do the text justice and give it some subtlety.
