Alice's trip down the rabbit hole, and her run-ins with the Mad Hatter, the Cheshire Cat, and the Queen of Hearts, persists as an enduring classic of literature. Lewis Carroll's novel has long been a pillar of pop culture, inspiring the 1951 Disney hit and influencing the works of figures as diverse as Salvador Dali, Jefferson Airplane, and Tim Burton. Carroll's whimsy is perfectly matched by the award-winning actress Miriam Margoyles (The Age of Innocence, Babe, Professor Sprout in the Harry Potter films), who brings her trademark depth of characterization and a wonderful loopiness to make this a boisterously fun experience.
On an ordinary summer's afternoon, Alice tumbles down a hole - and an extraordinary adventure begins. In a strange world with even stranger characters, she meets a rabbit with a pocket watch, joins a Mad Hatter's Tea Party, and plays croquet with the Queen! Lost in this fantasy land, Alice finds herself growing more and more curious by the minute.

"Perfectly read masterpiece!"
What a marvelous audio book!!! This is just perfect. I have been listning to this more than a hundred times, still I just enjoy it very much. Perfect for children, even for grown-ups like me, perhaps for foreingners studying English as their second langage. Just listen, and you will never be disappinted!
Beautiful intonations, perfect character intonation, this performance contributes to the understanding of the story.
A great voice!
I might try Through the Looking Glass, as people have said to me that you don't need to enjoy Alice's Adventures to enjoy Looking Glass. I'm not sure about the narrator, she didn't quite hit the spot for me, and I was therefore never fully engaged in the story.
If I'm honest, I only vaguely remember it, and at that point, I was sort of glad to be done with the book.
It is a film, and I love the film. The book is not very much like that, and it felt like it dragged quite a bit, despite being so short.
It's not like I don't like classics or a slower pace - quite the contrary. But this felt pointless and uninteresting, and the writing was definitely not top shelf.
Like I mean I really like this book I haven't finished yet but I wonder what will happen I want to listen it 24/7. 🙈🙉🙊🐒🐵🐀🐁🐭🐇🐰🐕🐶🐈🐱🐏🐑🐖🐷🐠🍔🍟🍹🍩
"Don't know what all the fuss is about"
She's a rude, naughty little girl with no concern for consequences. I can see why people like the imagery but I can also see why people think Carroll was on drugs. Disappointed after all the fuss.
