Alice was beginning to get very tired of sitting by her sister on the river bank, and of having nothing to do...when suddenly a White Rabbit with pink eyes ran by her. Alice did not think it so very strange to hear the Rabbit say to itself, "Oh dear! Oh dear! I shall be too late!" But when the Rabbit actually took a watch out of its waistcoat pocket and then hurried on, she started to wonder! Running after the strange fellow, she was just in time to see it pop down a large rabbit-hole. Down jumped Alice after it (never considering how in the world she was to get out again) and she tumbled into a curious world inhabited by the Mad Hatter, the Ugly Duchess, the Mock Turtle, the Cheshire Cat, and more…

With his marvelous sense of the absurd, Lewis Carroll’s whimsical, fantastical tale delighted children and adults when it was first published in 1865 and has since become a treasured classic of literature. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Taisiz Munoz | 2/17/2014

    " I love this book it's a classic tale . I think its better then all the other books that are in the library of Alice in wonderland because it gave poems and it's is easy to understand it. I compare it to other Alice and wonderland book that this version or story is better because it gave the poems and some of them you hear but most you don't hear and there wonderful just like the other. I recommend this to everyone because it easy and i think everyone knows this classic story of Alice. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marlee Naylor | 1/4/2014

    " I love this book. It is so fun and crazy and funny and ridiculous. It's fun for adults and it's fun for kids. Awesome! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 DeAnn | 12/27/2013

    " Great fantasy that set the stage for many fantasies that followed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrew | 12/3/2013

    " This was much more readable and thought-provoking than I expected. I was enthralled, which is interesting , since most of the book was really odd. I'm definitely looking forward to reading Through the Looking-Glass. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tiffany Gregory | 10/16/2013

    " It was just a dream! "

    " Who doesn't know and love little Alice? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shannon Quick | 8/16/2013

    " My favorite book was Through the Looking Glass. This is not your Disney story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Camilla Hansen | 12/11/2012

    " It's a merry story full of curious and odd things, rhymes and others, just as expected. I do enjoy the original tale and I will definitely be enjoying the other book as well. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michael Fogleman | 10/10/2012

    " Like other reviewers, I wish I had read this as a child. I hope to re-read this book, possibly in the Annotated/Definitive editions with the Gardener commentary. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Todd | 1/14/2012

    " Why didn't I ever read this as a child? Full of clever puns and metaphors which I have not yet unravelled, but the story-writing seemed lazy. The author would write himself into a corner and instead of finding a way out the corner would vanish. More a collection of short stories than a story itself. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laure | 12/29/2011

    " Simply an amazing classic, I've read it again and again! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Yelena Andreychenko | 11/7/2011

    " So random, colorful and silly!! I've enjoyed it so much! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Valorie Fry | 10/11/2011

    " One of the greatest literary works in my opinion. I see much of life reflected in Wonderland. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Micaela | 8/26/2011

    " Brilliant and crazy... You are reading a part of it then suddenly another part comes from nothing and you sometimes get stuck in the last part you were reading.. I just love Alice... since I was a little child. "

  • 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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Yixin | 3/25/2011

    " We read this book on the class. "
