Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll (1832 - 1898).

This project is now in our catalog at https://librivox.org/alices-adventures-in-wonderland-version-6-by-lewis-carroll/


Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (commonly shortened to Alice in Wonderland) is an 1865 novel written by English author Charles Lutwidge Dodgson under the pseudonym Lewis Carroll. It tells of a girl named Alice falling through a rabbit hole into a fantasy world populated by peculiar, anthropomorphic creatures. The tale plays with logic, giving the story lasting popularity with adults as well as with children. It is considered to be one of the best examples of the literary nonsense genre. Its narrative course, structure, characters, and imagery have been enormously influential in both popular culture and literature, especially in the fantasy genre. ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alice's_Adventures_in_Wonderland ) ( )
  • Text source (only read from this text!): https://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/11
  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard



    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

Hi Phil,

Thanks for your help. Is there a user guide that shows how to use the MW? I'm afraid I am unfamiliar as this is my first time going solo. :?

Hey, I am experimenting with a new screen recording software and made a little video showing how to put files in the magic window. https://youtu.be/pjV3AMDWTos

It is completely unedited but please give it a watch an tell me if it is intelligible. (now I gotta learn how to edit them) Tell Alice hello for me. :D

EDIT: Please export the file with 01 in the file name and upload it again. sorry for the bother but it keeps files straight.

Hey Phil,

Thanks a bunch! The video was definitely helpful. My mistake on the file naming convention and for the unnecessary post in the topic thread, I'll be sure to correct that.

I appreciate all your help!

Sections 1, 2, and 3 are now shown to be PL OK. Very nicely read.

I find myself going, "Wait! The Walt Disney movie wasn't like this!" :? :) Movies are very rarely better than the book.

On to Section 4.

You can add Sections 4, 5, and 6 to the list of PL OK efforts.

I will have the image of the caterpillar and its hookah on the mushroom in the back of my mind for the rest of the day.

Chapter 11 notes:

At 01:08, the third paragraph of the chapter which begins with "The judge, by the way, was the King;" was omitted.

Other than that, definitely PL OK.
