I really enjoyed this Audiobook. I honestly binge listened to it and finished it very quickly. I loved all of the Alice in Wonderland references. The characters were extremely likeable and Lesley Parkin did a superb job at bringing the characters and story to life. I look forward to for from this Author and narrator.

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
I really liked this alternative, steampunk-take on the Alice in Wonderland story. I especially liked that Alice was an adult and it was more like the characters from the original tale are nicknames. This was definitely a much darker tale and doesn't really follow the original story. It's not the feel-good fairy tale you expect with you think of Alice in Wonderland. It's set in the London underworld of the 19th century. The author does a brilliant job of paying homage to the original Lewis Carroll tale, and the narrator has a brilliant South London accent. I think this one is definitely worth a credit.

I liked this version of Alice in Wonderland. I loved how the author mixed a fairy tale with steampunk. I thought it was intersesting and different. It might not be to everyone's taste but I really liked it.
The narrator I thought did not suit this story. I didn't like the cockney accent she did for Alice's character, I felt it was stiff and not fluid at times. I found she did the Queen of hearts really well and some of the other characters as well but because Alice is the main character it put me off. She is not bad but I don't think she is ideal for this book. I noticed the other reviewers liked her, so it could be just me.
