Publisher's Summary

Golden Globe nominee Scarlett Johansson (Lost in Translation, Girl with a Pearl Earring) brings a palpable sense of joy and exuberance to her performance of Lewis Carroll's enduring classic Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. From the White Rabbit and Mad Hatter to the Cheshire Cat and Queen of Hearts, she imbues each madcap character with a distinct voice and personality that will leave a lasting impression long after the adventure is over.

One hundred and fifty years after its original publication, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland remains one of the most widely read, deconstructed, referenced, and reinterpreted works of Western fiction. It tells the story of the young and imaginative Alice, who grows weary of her storybook, one "without pictures or conversations", and follows a hasty hare underground - to come face to face with a host of strange and fantastic characters.

Excellent Narration

I listened to this with my daughter, and we loved the variety of voices, making each character unique and helping us follow the flow of the story. The book has been one of my favorites from childhood and this brought it to life.

Narration & Voice Acting

I decided to listen to Scarlett’s rendition on a whim, but her talent quickly enthralled me.
If you’re on the fence thinking this might be another monotonous narration of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, be assured Scarlett doesn’t disappoint in this rendition—she simply leaves you wanting more.
Thank you (Scarlett), for this wonderful experience.

I heard it’s a classic but it really wasn’t that good.

Scarlett Johansen did a good job narrating.

Scarlett Johansson was a gift

My 6 year olds were absolutely enthralled! The voice changes helped as well. This was their first audio book and they ate up every second. Their favorite part was the doormouse.

Bravo Scarlett

This was a delightful little story, with much nostalgia. But Scarlett elevated it so incredibly. I could listen to her narrate all day. The different voices she did for each character was absolutely wonderful.

Incredible

Any additional comments?

I've loved Alice's Adventures in Wonderland for as long as I can remember. As a child I adored the magic, the adventure, and the kooky characters. As an adult, I grew to love Carroll's imagery, symbolism (perhaps unintentional), and his ability to turn what seems like nonsense into an enduring children's tale. No matter how many times I've read this story and watched the movies, I feel like I can always return to the familiar and colorful place that is Wonderland. Scarlett Johansson brings such incredible depth and wonderment to this timeless tale, that this just may be my new favorite interpretation. Her sister, veteran narrator Vanessa Johansson directed this performance. I guess talent runs in the family

Why is this a classic?

I was excited to finally read this classic work of Carroll's. However, this is the most non-sensical, confusing, detached string of events that I have ever read. It doesn't even classify as an anthology. It is one story that makes no rational sense on how things occur from one to the next. Alice is in a room, crying so much the room fills with her tears creating an ocean, and then she finds a shore of animals who after a series of non-sensical events all then return home....BUT I thought this was all in a room of doors?? Anyway, Johansson is a fantastic narrator despite Carroll's odd story. #Fantasy #Absurd #tagsgiving #sweepstakes

I underestimated

Having an American read the character of Alice in the story of Alice in Wonderland seemed like a big mistake to me when I set out to listen to Scarlett Johansson read this classic.

I underestimated her skill as a reader and performer, and what a pleasant surprise that was.

The story of Alice in Wonderland isn't a new one. It's been animated and acted and animated again, and released in a  hundred formats. Filled with whimsical characters and a fulfilling plot of a little girl coming into her own (say what you will about Lewis Carroll's hidden agenda in the story) it's a surefire win for both kids, and imaginative adults alike. If you enjoyed this book as a kid, you'll enjoy the version performed by Scarlett.

Scarlett truly offers a transcendent performance in this. While her British accent might not be perfect her ability to bounce between all of the characters in the story and give them unique life is wonderful. I especially enjoyed her performance with the mock turtle and the griffin.

Alice in Wonderland is a short listen at less than three hours, but one that I think anyone will enjoy. I don't recommend speeding the narration. Her voice is well suited for the style of the story and the pace she reads at, and you'll lose some of her nuance if you accelerate the pace.

Lots of fun from a new voice telling an old story.

Famous actor does shrill grating annoying voices

Oh man. Some of the character voices are just awful, especially with headphones. Unlistenable. I guess Ms Johansson was too big a star to be confronted by an editor.

Spectacular Performance by Scarlett Johansson

Easy listening for adults and children alike. Johansson is no short of remarkable bringing these many characters to life! It's hard to believe she does the voices for all. Great audio for a road trip, bedtime story, or lazy day.

Her hoarse voice and weird voices made it too cringy. Buy the one with bj harrison hes much better.

pas évident

Quelle caractéristique de la performance de Scarlett Johansson aurait pu être améliorée ?

les voix des personnages secondaire sont parfois pas du tout agréable a entendre.
Alors que la vois d’Alice et du narrateur est très douce et agréable merci Scarlett Johansson

Avez-vous d'autres commentaires ?

Assez difficile a suivre pour un débutant en anglais.
Le vocabulaire est assez évolué.
