Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:
When Alice steps through the looking-glass, she enters a world of chess pieces and nursery rhyme characters who behave very strangely. Humpty Dumpty, Tweedledee and Tweedledum, the dotty White Knight and the sharp-tempered Red Queen - none of them are what they seem. In fact, through the looking-glass, everything is distorted.

Review:
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.
