With his marvelous sense of the absurd, Lewis Carroll's whimsical, fantastical tale delighted children and adults when it was first published in 1865 and has since become a treasured classic of literature.

This classic children's tale with its quirky characters and imaginative action is brought to life by the absolute genius of Jim Dale's narration. I honestly think the man could make a mathematics textbook sound exciting!
So Many Books, So Little Time
I'v read this story many times but when I saw that Jim Dale was narrating it I just had to buy it and listen. It was worth every penny and minute. Though the story is one of my favorites from childhood, listening to him read the story was a whole new experience. He is quite simply astonishing. Like he did in his narration of the Harry Potter books, he uses so many unique and wonderful voices that you know which character is which without being told. If you already love this book, you'll love it even more hearing him read it and if you do not know the story you are in for an incredible treat.
Jim Dale brings Lewis Carroll's characters to life as he reads through Alice's Adventures In Wonderland. Jim Dale has a different voice for every character. If you liked the book, you will love this Audiobook. Fall down into Wonderland. Get this book!
An old broad that enjoys books of all types. Would rather read than write reviews though. I know what I like, and won't be bothered by crap.
Can't say, because the drawings in the print version have always meant so much to me. I did like the audible version and was able to listen all the way in one sitting, so that was an improvement for me. Loved them both in different ways.
I love the poems and the Mad Tea Party the best!
The Mad Duchess was hilarious, as were several others including the White Rabbit and the March Hare.
Off with their heads!
I think everyone is familiar with the story. My only comment is I missed Alice being read by a woman with a British accent. Mr. Dale was fine for all the other characters though!
Jim Dale does a beautiful read, makes Alice
All of his voices and character changes
Not just for kids
Ebook/paper reader at home. Audible listener on the go.
Another fine reading by Jim Dale who always provides a smooth, pleasant, and charming listening experience. Nice price when you get the free kindle version first.
I really liked this book. It was neat hearing the story behind my favorite cartoon. it was awfully different but enjoyable just the same. Jim dale is amazing.!! I could listen to him all day.
When I saw that Jim Dale was the narrator for this classic, it was an easy decision to add to my classic book bucket list. What a treat! Jim Dale brings this story to life. Jim Dale was wonderful in Harry Potter, and a joy to listen to here!
The writing is exceptional. Yes, it's pure non-sense but a lot of fun!
