Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass | [Lewis Carroll]

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass

First published in 1865, these endearing tales of an imaginative child's dream world by Lewis Carroll, pen name for Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, are written with charming simplicity. While delighting children with a heroine who represents their own thoughts and feelings about growing up, the tale is appreciated by adults as a gentle satire on education, politics, literature, and Victorian life in general.

Publisher's Summary

First published in 1865, these endearing tales of an imaginative child's dream world by Lewis Carroll, pen name for Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, are written with charming simplicity. While delighting children with a heroine who represents their own thoughts and feelings about growing up, the tale is appreciated by adults as a gentle satire on education, politics, literature, and Victorian life in general.

All the delightful and bizarre inhabitants of Wonderland are here: the White Rabbit and the Cheshire Cat, the hooka-smoking Caterpillar and the Mad Hatter, the March Hare and the Ugly Duchess . . and, of course, Alice herself - growing alternately taller and smaller, attending demented tea parties and eccentric croquet games, observing everything with clarity and rational amazement.

    Librarian, reader, commuter. I got tired of the radio and CDs and switched to audio books. Now I listen to books while I quilt, clean, etc

    "Classicall Silliness"
    Any additional comments?

    What is there to say about the iconic Alice? The narrator is wonderful. I just don't have patience for this silliness.

    Story
    "Wildly inventive, classic wordplay"

    This is a very old piece of writing, so the style is old fashioned, and I'm very sure it helped me to listen to this story as opposed to reading it. There were a few places where it would momentarily seem to drag on a bit, but then a new situation with new characters would come along and rescue it.

    Lewis Carroll was amazingly clever when it came to the use of words, and both Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass contain numerous instances of truly classic quotable dialogue, particularly with Humpty Dumpty.

    Mr. Page appears to be endlessly inventive when it comes to voice characterizations; it was possible to distinguish between the White Queen and the Red Queen, for instance. He was an excellent choice to narrate.

    I’m very glad I finally “read” these classics. I loved them!

    "Great Family Story"

    I love having selections that I can listen to with my family on road trips or even just on a quiet Sunday afternoon. This totally fits the bill!

    "Another trip down the rabbit hole."
    If you could sum up Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass in three words, what would they be?

    Worth the trip. It has been 30 years since I last read Alice's Adventures in Wonderland it was great to navigate through the world Lewis Carroll created.

    "Classic and Excellent Story"

    Very fun story. I have seen various Alice in Wonderland movies, and none of them capture Lewis Carrolls whimsy, entertainment, and insight like the book. It is a fun often non-sensical adventure with a lot of clever insights such as Alice "often giving herself good advice, but very seldom following it." All the characters are interesting, but Carroll creates his most intriguing character in Alice. She is precocious but loveable and a very deep thinker- at least in her own mind.

    "Erm..."

    I really don't get it. I can not understand what or how this things happens to Alice. Alice is a bit hard to understand, it might be because I am at bit to old for it and her wonder and misunderstandings. But I am glad that I have heard it, it is classic and it is something that many knows so it is a good idee to get through.
