Alice's adventures, funny, inventive and disturbing, have fascinated children and adults alike since their publication. The White Rabbit, the Mad Hatter, the Queen of Hearts and the Cheshire Cat (and, of course, Alice herself) all have something "Curiouser and curiouser!" to say in this new unabridged multi-cast recording. A delightful fantasy down the rabbit hole.

Harry Potter led me to this one.
Fantastic story! Great show by the narrators
Yes, again and again! Because of the wonderful conversations and the way the actors play with words. Alice is a bit silly, but there are so many weird and funny characters that I never knew were invented by Lewis Carroll, it is simply fantastic fun!
The conversations and events, and the way they are acted by the cast. Very entertaining!
Not only David and Jo, but the audiobook has a full cast that brings the story completely to life. I even started to talk like them myself as I got totally into the story. "Off with his head!!"
Yes and no. Yes because of the fun, but sometimes it gets a bit tiring to listen to all the different voices. In two or three sittings however, very good indeed!
Apparently, this book is also a criticism of Victorian cultural norms. That may be, but I did not read so much in this. That might be my ignorance in the matter. It does not detract from the wonderful story though....:-)
