Audiobook 25 // Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll

Sometimes something special happens and it changes your plans for the better. This month I have been gifted a copy of Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, performed by Jodie Comer.

Listening time: 3 hours and 28 minutes.

A nonsense classic of its time.

A compelling narrative to sweep you away, from a legendary Victorian children’s author. Lewis Carroll wrote Alice in Wonderland in order to entertain a friend’s daughter on a boat trip—and so generations of children have flown away on his wild imaginations.

On a sunny afternoon, Alice discovers a bottle that says ‘DRINK ME’. Unable to resist, she follows the label’s instructions... and immediately shrinks to tumble down a rabbit hole into an adventure where nothing is as it seems. From The Mad Hatter to the White Rabbit, the grinning Cheshire Cat and the Queen of Hearts, Alice meets a cast of characters who are both eccentric and memorable.

But will Alice survive her nonsensical adventure... and can she get back home? She must face the challenges of eccentric puzzles, verses and riddles, with the help of intriguing new friends, in order to find the way back home. The first of four books, this is a children’s classic that promises to both entertain and charm.

For fans of The Chronicles Of Narnia and Peter Rabbit, a children’s fantasy like no other.

What a fun classic, enjoyed listening to this during an afternoon of spreadsheets. I have fond memories of reading this in my high school years for an art class. Well, I'm an adult now, I get to be lazy and just listen to someone else reading it to me. Jodie Comer was a great narrator and though sections were skipped it didn't overly affect my enjoyment.

It's as good now as it was back then, the weird characters, the unusual humour and a setting that just sets my imagination on fire. This has ignited the need to read the book once more and watch the Disney movie. Which in my mind is the best compliment I can give, go read a classic!
