I was never much of an "Alice in Wonderland" fan. As a child I found the tale's dense interweavings frustrating; as an adult my only exposure to it was vague memories of the Disney version. But my quest for unabridged books on tape led me to Christopher Plummer's marvelous reading of the story and fandom has arrived. My children have delighted in the tapes as much as I have - to the point that we've worn out our first set and need to buy a second! When Plummer reads the stories he pulls you down the rabbit hole with Alice. Every character's voice is distinctive and delightful. My only regret is that this perfomance is not available on CD.

I bought this copy not knowing how fabulous it is. Christopher Plummer is EXCELLENT, having different voices for the characters. Alice in Wonderland was particularly great. Children will love it...as well as adults. It's great on a long trip, which is how I heard it. I recommend it highly!!!

This is an entertaining if somewhat over-the-top rendition of the children's classic. Plummer varies his tone a bit too much for my comfort in the car - I keep having to turn the volume up and down. Some characters shout, while Alice speaks in a near-whisper. He also has some strange ways of handling the voices: the Mouse in the Pool sounds like John Cleese's Frenchman from Holy Grail, just to name one, though he nicely handles the Dodo's stammer (as a stand-in for Dodgson himself), and the Cheshire Cat is spot-on. Plummer also overdoes it a bit on the enthusiasm, reading descriptive passages with more relish than is strictly called for. Though he does seem to be enjoying himself, at least.
What I said about Wonderland goes for Looking Glass as well: entertaining but a bit over-the-top. The best example this time around is the tiger lily that sounds like Mae West. Still very enjoyable and includes the "wasp in a wig" segment at the end that was removed from the original and only found a few years ago. (As I recall, Tenniel refused to provide an illustration for such a scene.)

This is the most fantastic recording of Alice and Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass ever! I am also extremely impressed by the quality of the product and every bit as I imaged it would be :) thank you [...]. I have been searching for this recording for such a long time as i already had a copy of Alice in Wonderland but never Through the Looking Glass and my old copy is starting to fade so to have a brand new copies of them both of them together is just awesome :) thank you thank you so much :)
