Summary

Alice begins her fantastic journey by following an unprecedented White Rabbit with a pocket watch. While in the topsy turvy world of Wonderland, Alice takes advice from a caterpillar and attends a mad tea party. She meets the Mock Turtle and the Gryphon, and participates in a ludicrous courtroom scene. Each character has its own charming voice, as B. J. Harrison delivers one of his most whimsical performances.

A classic read poorly

Alice is one of the great classics of children's literature but I cannot recommend this version. The narrator is wildly over-emphatic - listen how WHACKY and ZANY this is - and appears to be pitching this subtle satire, written by an Oxford don, at the under fives. It's very easy to spoil humour by trying too hard to make it funny instead of just letting the jokes emerge naturally which is what happens here.
Very disappointed.
Possibly this is one of those cases where a book is seen differently on each side of the Atlantic and this is how the USA perceives the book: in which case I'd love to hear a UK English version: Stephen Fry or Alan Bennett could do the text justice and give it some subtlety.

Such a good narrator!!!

I am not going to review this book because just about everyone knows it by now. I had to review the audio book though because this is one of the best narrators I have ever heard. My first and favorite reading that BJ Harrison did was one of the Jeeves books by Wodehouse. This one was just as good and I loved hearing the characters brought to life, it is quite entertaining. I like to listen to audiobooks when I am going to sleep and this reading of a classic is one of my favorite. I can't even count the number of times I have listened to this book.

WITH WHAT PORPOISE?

DON'T BE NERVOUS OR I'LL HAVE YOU EXCUTED ON THE SPOT
Silly at times, Deep at times, always original. It might seem violent at times, with all the talking about chopping off of heads, but it never happens. I like the way they solve that problem. Little kids might like the getting big and bigger stuff, it annoyed me. Falling in the hole was fun, the tea party was interesting and I liked the trail and I liked the card people. It seemed longer than I remembered and I not sure in how it all fit together. EVERYTHING HAS GOT A MORAL IF ONLY YOU CAN FIND IT. I could not find it.

UGLIFY
Been some complaints about the narrator, I had none. Make sure and listen to the sample, that should be enough to tell you if the narrator is a problem for you.
