Classic

Cyril Richard's performance is the best reading of the Alice Adventures ever.
The Alice books have to be read, or better yet heard, in their original form (not the confusing mash-ups that Disney and Hollywood have produced), in order to be fully appreciated.
This recording is a great way to introduce Alice to young readers/listeners. Gift it to a child and open his or her eyes to the wonder of language,

The gold standard in audio books.

What made the experience of listening to Alice's Adventures In Wonderland the most enjoyable?

Cyril Ritchard provides an impeccable performance. For those who think they are not familiar with him, he played Captain Hook (and Mr. Darling) in the Mary Martin version of Peter Pan. He makes the characters in the book come alive by providing a voice appropriate to each.


What was one of the most memorable moments of Alice's Adventures In Wonderland?

The entire book is memorable through his performance. The Mad Tea Party is a good example. While the Disney cartoon version is fun and enjoyable, the original is far better, with the clever word plays and nonsense that somehow makes sense in Wonderland.


What about Cyril Ritchard’s performance did you like?

In addition to the voice characterizations (listen to the voice of the duck, which has a very subtle "quack" to it), Cyril Ritchard does a fantastic job with the songs that occasionally appear, such as the Duchess's "lullaby" to her baby, and the Mock Turtle's songs.


Any additional comments?

The chapters are introduced by marvelous short musical pieces by Alec Wilder and performed by The New York Woodwind Quintet. Cyril Ritchard also did a reading of Through the Looking Glass, every bit as good as this one. Audible, please get it!!!
