Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joan S. | 10/1/2016

    " I love Christopher Plummer's voice. It's rich and buttery and the way he reads the story adds new life to a classic tale. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Matthew | 2/18/2014

    " Deep and complex. A captivating, if slightly disconcerting, read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Crizzle | 2/13/2014

    " I loved the symbolism throughout... all the truths and challenges about growing up. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nayera Ahmed | 2/6/2014

    " A strange book but in a good way! Loved it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mona Mohamed hamed | 2/5/2014

    " Classics that should be part of every childhood. And every adult's inner child. Carroll's works are timeless exercises of the imagination that charm as well as challenge our perceptions. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kaitie | 2/4/2014

    " Obviously, I love this book. For those of you who don't know I'm writing my senior thesis on it. It's been a constant companion of mine for the past few months and I'm both sad and thrilled to finally be parting with it...at least until next time I get an inkling to read one of my favorite children's tales. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Stephen | 1/29/2014

    " I can't tell if the book just didn't age well for me or if I never would have liked it. It reads too much like what it was - a story told off the cuff for a little girl. The stories have no meaningful structure or plot, it's all just wacky characters. It's certainly creative but just a little too... twee? cute by half? infatuated by it's own cleverness? Hard to put my finger on it, but I didn't enjoy a page. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sara Edgell | 1/20/2014

    " Every time I read this book, it makes me angry! But there's something about it that is fantastic, because I continue to retread it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amber | 1/12/2014

    " Great children's book! It helps you to appreciate and remember what it was like being a kid and how you viewed or accepted things that were going on around you. It is weird and won't appeal to everybody, but I greatly enjoyed it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Paula | 12/31/2013

    " Wonderful and full of nonsense! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Alexis | 12/16/2013

    " I didn't mind the book, but I couldn't stand Alice as a character. The book didn't meet my expectations. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kimberly Corr-van aken | 12/8/2013

    " Just read this book for the first time at the age of 35! I was intrigued for sure! How very different the movie was done. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tina Denbo | 7/10/2012

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cjmueller | 2/24/2012

    " One of my favorites of all time. If you read this as a child, you need to read it again as an adult. Soo many more things make sense and are absolutely hilarious that I missed the first time around. You can't get the full effect from watching the movies - this is definitely a must-read "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amanda Baldwin | 11/28/2011

    " Definitely plan on reading this one again as I first read it when I was much younger. But I love this story. :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristina | 7/11/2011

    " Well I like Alice so much I guess I tend to write "Alice-in-Wonderland-Like" according to my creative writing workshop feedback! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alex Colter | 6/10/2011

    " Never think you're too old. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Gina | 5/17/2011

    " This story has no plot, and no structure. It seems almost like random thoughts going through the author's head in no organized manner. The only reason I kept reading was because it was crazy to watch Carrol's ideas unfold. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sherry | 5/2/2011

    " Lewis Carroll is just sooooooooo imaginative! I love the whole book; it definitely is a classic. There's so many creative poems in them, and the whole plot sucks the reader into the story. I really wish that Alice's adventures would never end! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jed | 4/18/2011

    " Not as good as Alice in Wonderland, but still delightful. The poetry in "Looking Glass" is better though. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Casey | 4/8/2011

    " This book wasn't as strange as the first, but it also felt slower, to me. Not that this book was awful. I loved the poetry in it, and it seems that there is more direction in this story.

    Probably not a book I'll ever read again, but one worth reading at least once. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cory | 4/7/2011

    " Much better than Alice in Wonderland, which I liked, too. I had forgotten that I read large portions of this in my Logic class in college. Very fun. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cynthia | 4/4/2011

    " Wonderfully illustrated and full of awesome colour! I loved th old style even though at times I didn't understand the book at all. I sure that the written version would add to my interest. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Mary | 4/4/2011

    " This book is just marginally better than Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. I'm just not taken with Carroll's style. He had a good imagination too bad he was such a bad writer. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sean | 4/2/2011

    " Hated it. Got about a third of the way through it and bailed. "

    " We read this book on the class. "
