I found this reading to be wonderful. Instead of one narrator with a few voice characterizations, the different characters voiced by different people is MUCH more entertaining. I was going to download the version narrated by Jim Dale, since I really enjoyed his work on all of the Harry Potter audiobooks, but, after I listened to all of the audio samples for this book, to me, this one was the best. AND, the same cast of voices are in "Through The Looking Glass", the sequel to this book, of which I will be downloading at a future date. I would recommend this recording to anyone, but I would still encourage you to listen to all of the audio samples. No matter which narrator you choose, the story itself is still a magical classic!

Would you listen to Alice in Wonderland again? Why?
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!
What did you like best about this story?
The conversations and events, and the way they are acted by the cast. Very entertaining!
What does David Horovitch and Jo Wyatt bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
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!!"
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
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!
Any additional comments?
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....:-)
