THROUGH THE LOOKING-GLASS AND WHAT ALICE FOUND THERE

by | Read by David Horovitch, Jo Wyatt, and a Full Cast

Classics • 3.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2006

This entry in the crowd of Alice audios comes from Naxos, the British company that that adorns its audiobooks with musical bridges culled from its library of classic music. Sixteen fine actors, led by narrator David Horovitch and Jo Wyatt as Alice, recite the unabridged text rather than dramatize it. There seems to be no rapport among them. The effect is a measured, patrician rendering. Wyatt, an adult, sounds like she's voicing a child heroine in an anime adventure. Of all the characters in the Alice books, she's the last one who should sound cartoon-like. Plus, despite the excellence of the cast, the production seems a trifle plodding.
