If this book were a movie would you go see it?
My Grand-daughter picked this book for a long car ride but asked me to take it off so she could watch the movie on her I-Pad. I suppose it is a story that unfolds better as a visual in this case. It would be unconsionable to say that this iconic story would rate less than four stars thus the rating. This fairy tale has never been one of my favourites even as a child.
Alan Bennett is my family's favorite reader - his ability to capture all the characters is remarkable. My children were both totally engaged with the story, which is of course, brilliant!
Alan Bennet is a good narrator but we found it difficult to listen to long sections of the story without losing concentration. We prefer the BBC audio books in the full cast version as they are more engaging.
It is strange that there is no introduction giving the book title, author, etc - the story just starts. There is also no separation between Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass. It just rolls into one story and we had to stop and go back to explain to the kids that the first book had finished and we were now on the second book.
Wonderful. Great characterisation. listened to it several times add I've enjoyed it so much. this is an abridged version of the books.
