Publisher's Summary

Alice begins her fantastic journey by following an unprecedented White Rabbit with a pocket watch. While in the topsy turvy world of Wonderland, Alice takes advice from a caterpillar and attends a mad tea party. She meets the Mock Turtle and the Gryphon, and participates in a ludicrous courtroom scene. Each character has its own charming voice, as B. J. Harrison delivers one of his most whimsical performances.

Such a good narrator!!!

I am not going to review this book because just about everyone knows it by now. I had to review the audio book though because this is one of the best narrators I have ever heard. My first and favorite reading that BJ Harrison did was one of the Jeeves books by Wodehouse. This one was just as good and I loved hearing the characters brought to life, it is quite entertaining. I like to listen to audiobooks when I am going to sleep and this reading of a classic is one of my favorite. I can't even count the number of times I have listened to this book.

WITH WHAT PORPOISE?

DON'T BE NERVOUS OR I'LL HAVE YOU EXCUTED ON THE SPOT
Silly at times, Deep at times, always original. It might seem violent at times, with all the talking about chopping off of heads, but it never happens. I like the way they solve that problem. Little kids might like the getting big and bigger stuff, it annoyed me. Falling in the hole was fun, the tea party was interesting and I liked the trail and I liked the card people. It seemed longer than I remembered and I not sure in how it all fit together. EVERYTHING HAS GOT A MORAL IF ONLY YOU CAN FIND IT. I could not find it.

UGLIFY
Been some complaints about the narrator, I had none. Make sure and listen to the sample, that should be enough to tell you if the narrator is a problem for you.

Love

What did you like best about this story?

It is truly weird.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, twice.

Any additional comments?

I became curious after hearing commentary on Carrol's' math roots but picked up the book for my youngest daughter. Oh my God, I was floored by the originality in content. Especially in Sci-fi so many stories try to create an original world but none compare to this. I loved it.

Childhood Memories

As a retired teacher & reading specialist, I love good literature for all ages. What fun it was to listen to a favorite book of excellent "kiddy lit" from my early reading years of grade school. Good literature is good literature, no matter the genre or age group! I'm grateful for my mom, who recently left this earthly plane of existence, for teaching me to read at an early age & especially for passing on her love of reading to me & my brothers. This is the true reason I became a teacher & reading specialist! (I love you & miss you, Mom.)

paid ¢.50 for a classic

I was surprised to hear that this was a podcast which means I probably paid .¢.50 for something that was free somewhere but I can't complain. B.J. Harrison does a wonderful job at narrating this classic and so I feel it was ¢.50 well spent.

Not for me

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Someone with a better tolerance for the reader

Would you be willing to try another book from Lewis Carroll? Why or why not?

Absolutely. Alice is a classic

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Terrible voice for reading

A classic.

Lovely version of an old favorite . Highly recommended. The reader does a great job with all of the different voices.

Meh

Would you be willing to try another one of B.J. Harrison’s performances?

I really didn't enjoy this narrator. I love this story but I did not finish this and actually bought it with a different narrator. The tone is flat to me and some of the pronunciations were painful. I just wish I had listened to this in a timely manner and could have gotten my money back. It wasn't the worst narration ever but I am unlikely to listen to Mr. Harrison again.

A classic read poorly

Alice is one of the great classics of children's literature but I cannot recommend this version. The narrator is wildly over-emphatic - listen how WHACKY and ZANY this is - and appears to be pitching this subtle satire, written by an Oxford don, at the under fives. It's very easy to spoil humour by trying too hard to make it funny instead of just letting the jokes emerge naturally which is what happens here.
Very disappointed.
Possibly this is one of those cases where a book is seen differently on each side of the Atlantic and this is how the USA perceives the book: in which case I'd love to hear a UK English version: Stephen Fry or Alan Bennett could do the text justice and give it some subtlety.

Great voices and life to the story

Where does Alice in Wonderland rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This was only a short story by comparrison to most I listen to on Audible, but it was very enjoyable and well read.

What about B.J. Harrison’s performance did you like?

This narrator did a great job, he read the story so well and every different character each had their own voice and way of speaking

Worth Every Minute

A great narator, full of energy and enthusiasm. He potrayed each character amazingly and left no room for lulls in the story.

I would strongly recommend.
