Wildly Inappropriate Narration

Overall
1 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 01-23-17

The subject matter of this book is quite serious, yet the narrator read it as though it was the Wizard of Oz. It seemed like he had no idea what he was reading, actually. He likely uses the same childish rythm when narrating any book regardless of the subject.

Don't listen to this narration. Buy the book and read it yourself.

  • Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

Golden Globe nominee Scarlett Johansson ( Lost in Translation, Girl with a Pearl Earring) brings a palpable sense of joy and exuberance to her performance of Lewis Carroll's enduring classic Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. The young and imaginative Alice grows weary of her storybook, one "without pictures or conversations", and follows a hasty hare underground - to come face to face with a host of strange and fantastic characters.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

A whole lot of nothing happens in this book. There is no substance. The story was obviously created by a mind that was heavily influenced by a mixture of absinthe and opium, whether Carroll was drawing from his own experiences or taking from those of his friends.

The trial scene is by far the best part of the entire book. I thought it was genuinely funny due to its absurdity. I would recommend this book solely for that reason.

What about Scarlett Johansson’s performance did you like?

Her voice is captivating and soothing. I absolutely loved her narration! She did an excellent job bringing life to each character. My absolute favorites were the ridiculously flamboyant Queen and the soft-spoken mouse. I could listen to books read by Scarlett all day every day.
