Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (27 January 1832 - 14 January 1898), better known by the pseudonym Lewis Carroll, was an English author, mathematician, logician, Anglican deacon, and a photographer. His most famous writings are Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and its sequel, Through the Looking-Glass, as well as the poems 'The Hunting of the Snark' and 'Jabberwocky, ' all examples of the genre of literary nonsense. He is noted for his facility at word play, logic, and fantasy.
Tim Gerard Reynolds is an established audiobook narrator who has won several AudioFile Earphones Awards and was a finalist for the prestigious Audie Award for Best Fantasy Narration. He trained for the stage at the Samuel Beckett Center at Trinity College in Dublin and the Eugene O'Neill Theatre Center in New London, Connecticut.
Reader Reynolds buoyantly leads listeners down the rabbit hole and into the topsy-turvy world of Carroll s Wonderland. When the young Alice follows a waistcoat-wearing rabbit holding a pocket watch, she finds herself in a fantastical world of talking mice, disappearing cats, hookah-smoking caterpillars, fish-headed footmen, and babies who turn into pigs. She shrinks smaller than a mouse and grows tall as a tree, participates in a mad tea party, plays croquet using flamingos for mallets, and runs afoul of the ill-tempered Queen of Hearts, whose cry of Off with their heads! seems to be the answer to most anything. It is a madcap, nonsensical entertainment, and Reynolds leaps into this tale s telling with enthusiastic aplomb. Fully embracing the material, Reynolds delivers the author s whimsical prose, poetry, and quirky characters with just the right touch of theatricality: bigger than life, but not completely over-the-top."
