Editor reviews

Alice's trip down the rabbit hole, and her run-ins with the Mad Hatter, the Cheshire Cat, and the Queen of Hearts, persists as an enduring classic of literature. Lewis Carroll's novel has long been a pillar of pop culture, inspiring the 1951 Disney hit and influencing the works of figures as diverse as Salvador Dali, Jefferson Airplane, and Tim Burton. Carroll's whimsy is perfectly matched by the award-winning actress Miriam Margoyles (The Age of Innocence, Babe, Professor Sprout in the Harry Potter films), who brings her trademark depth of characterization and a wonderful loopiness to make this a boisterously fun experience.

Summary

On an ordinary summer's afternoon, Alice tumbles down a hole - and an extraordinary adventure begins. In a strange world with even stranger characters, she meets a rabbit with a pocket watch, joins a Mad Hatter's Tea Party, and plays croquet with the Queen! Lost in this fantasy land, Alice finds herself growing more and more curious by the minute.

Perfectly read masterpiece!

What a marvelous audio book!!! This is just perfect. I have been listning to this more than a hundred times, still I just enjoy it very much. Perfect for children, even for grown-ups like me, perhaps for foreingners studying English as their second langage. Just listen, and you will never be disappinted!

NOoooooooo!

Alice in Wonderland has got to be my favourite book of all time. I can recite almost all of it word for word.
Miriam Margolyes has got to be one of my favourite narrators and all round outrageously funny people.
What could possible go wrong???.
Whay the bad review??
She turned it into a version of Alice in wonderland meets the bleakest of Dickens novels...which she does brilliantly might I add
It was beautifully read as you would expect no less from Miriam, but it was done in a way, that was somehow joyless and bizarrely very dark.
In contrast I have on CD Alan Bennett reading the same book and it is light and funny and exactly the way I want Alice in Wonderland to be... so I am returning it and I shall replace the Alan Bennett CD with this one
I am bitterly disappointecd..

Miriam is a genius

I haven’t read the book for about 50 years. I loved this, as it went along I could picture the images in my childhood book.

Wonderful story read wonderfully

What did you like best about this story?

Alice is a delight; the bonkers characters of her adventures are delightful and the writing is perfection.

Which character – as performed by Miriam Margolyes – was your favourite?

The Caterpillar. He's the best character anyway and Miriam Margolyes performs him perfectly.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I would have been happy to but I enjoyed spreading it over a number of sittings.
