Publisher's Summary

Since the publication of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland in 1865 and Through the Looking Glass six years later, Lewis Carroll’s nonsensical tales have delighted the world with wildly imaginative and unforgettable journeys.

While charming children with a heroine who represents their own feelings about growing up, the Alice stories are also appreciated by adults as a gentle satire on education, politics, literature, and Victorian life in general. This unabridged recording lets listeners of all ages enjoy every moment of Alice’s adventures down the rabbit hole and through the looking glass, including The Wasp in a Wig – a lost episode of Through the Looking Glass that is not included in most familiar editions.

Recording the lost material here for the first time, actor Christopher Plummer brings both new and familiar characters to life, including the White Rabbit, the Cheshire Cat, the Queen of Hearts, and—of course—Alice herself.

    "The problem is not the story..."

    The story is amazing!
    The problem is the recording...
    At times the performance is all about the character whispering... but the volume gets so low... that I had to turn my whole car stereo to full volume, only to get shocked as hell when there suddenly "normal" tone...
    anyway.... I suggest you find a better recording with the second book "Through the looking glass"

    Any additional comments?

    I've always liked Alice, sometimes in spite of what they've done to her, but I have to say Christopher Plummer's reading of Alice is one of the BEST I've owned. I have this on cassette tape and have been waiting patiently for it to show up here. His vocal interpretation of the characters is fabulous. While i do have other Audible versions of these works, this one is my absolute favorite.

    "Messed up audio from second part = unlistenable!"
    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Christopher Plummer was a fine narrator--he does all the parts with a variety of accents, which isn't my favorite but at least he does it well. The problem is that for the second book, Through the Looking Glass, his voicing of Alice is INAUDIBLE! The audio is so messed up that you have to strain your ears. Not Plummer's fault, it's an audio thing. The first book was fine audio-wise. But save your ears and don't try and listen to the second book.

    "Incredible performance"

    Christopher Plummer is perfection.
    Every voice is so different and every character so richly fashioned.
    I lived every second of listening to this classic.

    "Audio needs tweaking"

    I have only one problem with this audiobook. At the beginning of "Through the Looking Glass," Christopher Plummer whispers to reflect Alice is whispering to the kitten. It's so quiet, I couldn't understand. Other than this, Christopher Plummer's voice is quite wonderful to enjoy.

    "Classic Alice"

    There is nothing I can tell you about this story that you don't already know; that's why your here. But there is something simply compelling about a great narrator, and Mr. Plummer is just that.

    "Family Favorite"

    I enjoyed it other than his Alice voice was so quiet and so hard to hear. Other than that I loved all the voices he used. My kids and I loved it and will listen again.

    "Christopher Plummer makes this exceptional"

    It seems like everyone knows the story of Alice in Wonderland from birth almost, as it's truly a classic tale and woven into our culture over many, many years. I had never actually taken the time to read it so got this audio book. Christopher Plummer brought it to life in a whole new way, doing many funny voices and expressing nuances so well that I was laughing out loud very often and hooked as if it was a new story to me. Thoroughly enjoyed every second.
