(5 stars)

I'm 15 and I'm blind. I loved this story and having different people reading it ave it characture

entertaining

(4 stars)

this was a very entertaining listen. usually I don't like "voices", but I didn't mind it in this story. :) the voice of Alice, I felt, was a bit stale and without much emotion. ... and she kept saying "you know" with an incorrect inflection, but that's just my opinion.

great supporting cast

(4 stars)

a very tiresome Alice with not much dramatic talent but a good supporting cast especially the red Queen and the white knight.

eh alright.

(3.5 stars)

I like all the voices and how trippy the story is but I wouldn't say its absolutely my favorite cup of tea story wise. at tinesi lost interest. its all preference

Great Book

(4 stars)

Great classic, but I did not enjoy this book as much as 'Alice in wonderland'. I enjoyed the readers too.

Loved it

(5 stars)

This has been my favorite over Wonderland for 17 years. The roles seemed like they were made specifically for the actors. I thoroughly enjoyed (in no particular order) the Narrator, White King, Red Queen, the Gnat, Humpty Dumpty, the White Knight and the Aged man. Alice's voice actress has a lovely voice but her inflection was odd; "you know" being the most obvious. Her exclamations were a little flat. This, along with the odd inflection made her role distracting and frustrating.
