Publisher's Summary

Gemma Arterton reads Lewis Carroll's all-time classic, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.

One sleepy summer's day, Alice sees a white rabbit disappear down a rabbit hole. But this is not an ordinary rabbit, this one wears a waistcoat, has a pocket watch and is talking to himself, so Alice follows him! When she stops falling down the rabbit hole she finds herself in a curious hall full of locked doors and one small key, and now her adventures begin.

Alice meets characters like the Queen of Hearts, the Mad Hatter and the Cheshire Cat in a story that has delighted and entranced readers for more than a hundred years. This is part of AudioGO's 'Famous Fiction' range.

not the best abridgement

It was the length I needed for a lesson I was giving but I think it really lost all the quirks and charms of the original by being too bland and not zeroing in anywhere.

Magnificent

It was an amazing story and was well narrated by Arterton, she had emotion in her voice rather than it being flat or simple.

Great reading - a short version though

Not complaining too much, as this was free, but I thought that it should have been made clearer that this is very cut-down version of the original. That said, Gemma Arterton was absolutely lovely, and made Lewis Carrol's words shine. My 7 yo daughter thought it was marvelous.

Classic

You can't go wrong entering into the topsy turvy inside out and upside down world of wonderland.

Wonderfully Narrated

This was a delight to listen to! However, this is a cut-down version of the book for those who wanted the complete version.
