Sintesi dell'editore

This 1872 sequel to Alice's Adventures in Wonderland finds Carroll's inquisitive heroine in a fantastic land where everything is reversed. Whereas the first book has the deck of cards as a theme, this book is loosely based on a game of chess, played on a giant chessboard with fields for squares.

Alice encounters talking flowers, madcap kings and queens, and strange mythological characters when she becomes a pawn in a bizarre chess game involving Humpty Dumpty, Tweedledum and Tweedledee, and other amusing nursery-rhyme characters.

"By any reckoning...[one of the] most original works of fiction to emerge from that strange and original time known as Victorian England." ( Guardian)

Fantastic narration

I love the writings and puns. This narrator made me laugh out loud! I’d listen to more by this performer.

A magical story recited much too poorly...

A gruff and grizzled Americanized recording of a classic that was often painful to digest; the White Queen has a unconvincing Southern accent; The Tweedles sound like the aggressive Lolipop Guild Munchins; WC Fields is there too, somewhere in there, and Peter Lorre, too, and I would even say J. Edgar Hoover. Pay for an audio of a better version. I have listened to many fine and included audio versions. This wasn’t one of them. The magic of Wonderland and that Dreamworld is reduced to a film noir set in 1920s New York. Too harsh? Too inconsistent and voices too familiar if other famous actors to transport me to that Other World.

A fun story but not the best narration

The only problem I have is the narrator... for some reason he gives the white queen a southern accent and it just doesn't fit with the story at all. The sound quality is good, though, and besides the white queen, the other characters are voiced okay. I hope audible has Scarlett Johansson redo the narration for this book like she did with the first Alice in Wonderland book.

Not for everyone.

This version has a character actor doing Carrol’s characters as W. C. Fields, Peter Lorre, and I am assuming a stereotypical naive tween girl. That’s on top of a story I can’t believe was not written after experiencing acid.
