Alice in Blunderland: an Iridescent Dream (version 2)


Read by Lars Rolander (1942-2016)

(4.5 stars; 7 reviews)

John Kendrick Bangs was an American author and satirist, and the creator of modern Bangasian Fantasy, the school of fantasy writing that sets the plot wholly or partially in the afterlife. (Wikipedia)

Plot summary: J K Bangs has taken Alice from Lewis Carroll's “Alice in Wonderland” and lets her on a boring day travel with the Mad Hatter, the March Hare, the Cheshire Cat and the other of Carroll's familiar characters to Blunderland. The story is a well written Satire, a witty, humorous tale of adventure and city politics, a tale of Alice in a land where nothing is as it should be. (Summary by Lars Rolander)

Reviews

read by Lars Rodenberg

(4 stars)

The story was a bit tiresome in a few places but was very well read by Lars. One pnt off for a squeaky sound in the background & bc of the over technical story.

A UNIQUE Tale

(5 stars)

Acute, unique twist on the age old Alice filled with irony. Well read by Lars.
