Publisher's Summary

Since the publication of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland in 1865 and Through the Looking Glass six years later, Lewis Carroll’s nonsensical tales have delighted the world with wildly imaginative and unforgettable journeys.

While charming children with a heroine who represents their own feelings about growing up, the Alice stories are also appreciated by adults as a gentle satire on education, politics, literature, and Victorian life in general. This unabridged recording lets listeners of all ages enjoy every moment of Alice’s adventures down the rabbit hole and through the looking glass, including The Wasp in a Wig – a lost episode of Through the Looking Glass that is not included in most familiar editions.

Recording the lost material here for the first time, actor Christopher Plummer brings both new and familiar characters to life, including the White Rabbit, the Cheshire Cat, the Queen of Hearts, and—of course—Alice herself.

    "Family Favorite"

    I enjoyed it other than his Alice voice was so quiet and so hard to hear. Other than that I loved all the voices he used. My kids and I loved it and will listen again.

    "The BEST storytelling ever, but not for driving."
    What made the experience of listening to Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass the most enjoyable?

    This classic story is told by an incredible talent. The characters, intonation, emotions and utter fun are unmatched. I found myself giggling with delight at the charm, class and utter cuteness of the telling every two minutes,


    Any additional comments?

    Although the story and storytelling are both 5+ stars, the production of low-volume sections, where Alice whispers in conversation with herself, made it impossible to listen to this book while driving.

    Alice in Wonderland, awesome.

    Through the looking glass... Echos in the beginning, then doesn't name the chapters. Still awesome performance.

    Story
    "Very different"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this book to a friend because it is very entertaining to listen to.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I would have made it a bit less detailed. There were so many characters that the book was very confusing at times and difficult to understand.


    Have you listened to any of Christopher Plummer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No I have not listened to any other books narrated by Christopher Plummer, but he is an excellent narrator. He was able to do an excellent array of different voices for the different characters. The book was very fun to listen to because of the job he did with the narrations.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Enter into a world of wonder and imagination.

    "Difficult to listen to."

    The reader does an amazing job of giving a different voice to every character however, he changes the level of his voice so often and with such a range that I find I have to turn up the volume to listen to one character and then a second later I blast my eardrums because the next character is yelling so loudly. It's a good reading, just prepare to adjust your volume frequently.

    My taste is FLAWLESS! Also, I don't still live in Seattle. And don't know how to change the bit that says so. Why is every word capitalized?

    Story
    "He shouldn't have acted."
    What would have made Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass better?

    His narration of the story was fine and dandy, but when he did voices they were extremely exaggerated and distorted from his actual voice, to the point where I couldn't hear what he was saying. Also, the voice for Alice, where he makes his voice all whispery and squeaky is annoying.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    I didn't get to the ending because I gave up trying to decipher what he was saying and the acting was too distracting.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Christopher Plummer’s performances?

    Hell no.


    What character would you cut from Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass?

    I wouldn't.


    Any additional comments?

    No.

    You can learn as much from a terrible book as a brilliantly written one.

    "Slightly Disappointed"
    Any additional comments?

    This is a classic and when I listened to the trial I thought this would be a good audio rendition. Nope. For most part in the first story, it was fine and the narrator did great with the voices. However in "Through the Looking Glass", the volume of the narrator dropped so much, that I found it hard to follow, and I have very good hearing. It's one thing to mutter and reflect that, but it needs still to be understandable. Ok, so the muttering in the beginning I could follow, but the whole part with the train was impossible! The words are so garbled that despite the volume being at a good level, it was impossible to understand what the characters say. It's a shame because the narrator obviously has talent, but I think it was waisted in this one.

    "Difficult to understand"

    I found this narrator very difficult to understand frequently. It required me to turn the volume up/down in order to semi-hear what he was saying. Got to a point where I couldn't even finish the book because of this.
