Publisher's Summary

Alice sees the other side of the Looking Glass, and enters another world of whimsical enchantment. She encounters argumentative chessmen, Jabberwocky monsters, Tweedledum and Tweedledee, and some very insolent flowers. Carroll continues the development of his Wonderland in this second, and many feel richer, adventure of Alice.

    Story
    "Engaging, if crazy."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This is an entertaining tale although completely bonkers. It's laugh out loud funny but also mind-bending. The narrator is brilliant; I struggled to decide which character I preferred him doing but as the white knight, he was hilarious.


    Any additional comments?

    There is a missing section towards the end, before a song in the Invention chapter. I have a kindle version and noticed it was 4%.

    Story
    "Through the Looking Glass"

    I enjoyed the theatrical reading of this story. As well as the footnotes explaining certain phrases or words we no longer use in today or American English.

    My only complaint is that there was a part missing from Chapter 8; "It's My Own Invention". The audiobook cut off right before the Knights recitation of his song, and jumped tot he beginning of Chapter 9; "Queen Alice".

    Not sure if it's my physical text or what caused the miscommunication, but just a heads up.

    Story
    "Not like Alice as a child? Listen again,glad I did"

    Bj Harrison is excellent narrator and I have listened to books I never would have had they not been listed on his page. He brings Alice to life. I found a new appreciation for Alice through audible books. I think she was meant to be read aloud, or more listened to while someone reads to you.

    Alice in wonderland has become one of my favorites. This world is so serious at times, everyone needs a little nonsense. Lewis Carroll brings it perfectly, and in educated doses.

    Story
    "Cute and crazy"

    I enjoyed this book much more than I thought I would. Her adventure in wonderland I could have done without and figured this would be just as obnoxious and dull... Instead it was more fun and entertaining (as far as from an adults point of view this review is) than I thought I'd be willing to give it credit.

    Story
    "It's hard to live up to the original"

    I listened to this back to back with Scarlett Johansson's reading of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. This put Through the Looking Glass at a huge disadvantage. For one, there's a reason the first book is so popular -- almost everything about it is better. And two: Johansson did such a remarkable job that it's almost unfair to compare anyone else to her. B.J. Harrison did a fine job though. Not fantastic, but fine. I wouldn't mind hearing him again but I doubt I'll seek him out.

    "A favorite classic"

    I have been a life long Lewis Carroll fan. This story is fun and creative. The performance of this book is fantastic, the only reason I gave the over all a 3 star is because at the end of chapter 8 there is about a page missing. It makes for a jarring moment when listening to the story.

    "Greatest Dream"

    Time to delve into this childhood treasure if you haven't recently explored with big girl/boy life experience!

    Story
    "Chaotic, but Charming"

    Lewis Carroll captures the petulance, curiosity, and stubbornness of a child character so well, that despite not being my favorite book Alice remains one of my favorite leads. That alone makes these short classics worth listening to, as her personality has much more charm than her Disney counterpart.

    The books themselves are chaotic to the point of nonsensical, and while that's part of the novelty it does wear a little tiresome. There are many places where the insensibility is quite clever -- I especially enjoyed the recurring theme of how some of the most illogical dialogue is actually overly logical -- but there are many parts where it feels a little too much to follow along with. The book version probably has an edge here; it's easier to catch nuances and re-read passages in the book format, and I know that Lewis Carroll plays with the text quite a bit.

    BJ Harrison is a wonderful narrator, as always, and I always recommend his works.

    (This review is for both 'Alice in Wonderland' and 'Through the Looking Glass')

    "I'm confused"

    This was very strange yet not very interesting to me. I'm not sure why this story is so popular.
