Publisher's Summary

Alice sees the other side of the Looking Glass, and enters another world of whimsical enchantment. She encounters argumentative chessmen, Jabberwocky monsters, Tweedledum and Tweedledee, and some very insolent flowers. Carroll continues the development of his Wonderland in this second, and many feel richer, adventure of Alice.

    Story
    "Through the Looking Glass"

    I enjoyed the theatrical reading of this story. As well as the footnotes explaining certain phrases or words we no longer use in today or American English.

    My only complaint is that there was a part missing from Chapter 8; "It's My Own Invention". The audiobook cut off right before the Knights recitation of his song, and jumped tot he beginning of Chapter 9; "Queen Alice".

    Not sure if it's my physical text or what caused the miscommunication, but just a heads up.

    It's always too soon to write a fair review of a great book when they always keep you thinking. 4 & 5 stars are worth repeat listenings.

    Story
    "Not like Alice as a child? Listen again,glad I did"

    Bj Harrison is excellent narrator and I have listened to books I never would have had they not been listed on his page. He brings Alice to life. I found a new appreciation for Alice through audible books. I think she was meant to be read aloud, or more listened to while someone reads to you.

    Alice in wonderland has become one of my favorites. This world is so serious at times, everyone needs a little nonsense. Lewis Carroll brings it perfectly, and in educated doses.

    "I'm confused"

    This was very strange yet not very interesting to me. I'm not sure why this story is so popular.

    "Good performance of an OK story."

    Harrison does a decent job of a one-man show. The story has its moments, but was not as amusing as Alice in Wonderland.

    Story
    "Great Narrator for an Alright Book"
    What did you like best about Through the Looking Glass? What did you like least?

    I really enjoyed the narrator. B. J. Harrison did a fantastic job of portraying the individual characters and keeping me as interested in the story as I could be. What did I like the least? I don't understand the popularity of Alice. To me, the book was rather pointless. Just the ramblings of a child's imaginations (or possible psychosis).


    What could Lewis Carroll have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    The world-building is intriguing and it's fun to get in the mind of a child (or crazy person). However, the story itself has no real plot, challenge, or climax.


    Which character – as performed by B.J. Harrison – was your favorite?

    He did a great job as Alice for sure, but I rather enjoyed his portrayal of the Red Queen.


    Could you see Through the Looking Glass being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    I believe it is being made into a movie with Johnny Depp involved with it.

    "Great speaker"

    The reader of this book did really well, but the book is pretty confusing in the sense that there are little to no transitions between scenes.

    Story
    "Pretty good"

    Obviously this book isn't nearly as great as Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, and I didn't expect it to be. However, it didn't even come close. The story was disjointed and bizarre. It always bothers me how animals are referred to as "it" instead of he/she but I'm sensitive to that stuff. The narrator, B.J. Harrison, sounds like a super villain, which is a little disconcerting. Overall I liked it but I definitely didn't love it.
