THE STORY OF ALICE Lewis Carroll and the Secret History of Wonderland

by | Read by Shaun Grindell

Biography & Memoir • 16 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2015

Author Douglas-Fairhurst explores the lives of Charles Dodgson, a.k.a. Lewis Carroll, and Alice Liddell, the inspiration for ALICE'S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND. Narrator Shaun Grindell's most important achievement is preventing the author's meticulous academic details from weighing down the listener. Grindell's energetic pacing keeps it all moving along, and he changes tone and emphasis to good effect. He employs an edge of wonder for the literary wordplay of Alice's fictional world, a thoughtful tone for the discussion of Dodgson's sentimental rather than sexual feeling for young girls, and carefully articulated diction for the middle-aged Dodgson himself as he fusses over the amount of bread and butter or cake in the Common Room.
