    "Good gracious!" said Alice, "I do believe I'm inside a review!"She turned to the Hatter and the March Hare. "Well, let me see. Here is the title, and here is the date I read it. That must be today. Now I need to explain the plot and the overall point.""There is no plot," said the March Hare disagreeably."And there is no point," agreed the Hatter. He poured a little hot tea on the Dormouse's nose, making it wake with a start. "The book breaks new...

    *Reread July 2017*Reread this for booktube-a-thon 2017 just because I was falling behind. Obviously I loved it (again).*Reread January 2016*Read for the school this time and I read the Puffin In Bloom edition. I loved the new illustrations!

    THIS IS MY FAVORITE BOOK.No qualifier. No excuse. No “one of my favorites.” This one is it, y’all., also Through the Looking Glass. But THAT’S PRACTICALLY THE SECOND HALF OF THE SAME BOOK. (And other examples of my inability to make decisions or commit in any way to anything.)I currently have 18 copies of this book. I’ve attempted to read it at least annually for the past three years. And by ...

    Unpopular OpinionThis took me a long time to get through...I found it sometimes tedious to be quite honest. Sorry. I guess I just don't love the nonsensical fun of this as much as everyone else seems to love it. I enjoyed the pictures and I really liked this edition and I enjoyed it well enough, but as I said, I just don't love it as much as a lot of others do.

    Having just finished Alice in Wonderland, the first thing that occurs to me is that I wish I had read it years ago. I've known the story of Alice for years thanks to Disney and the Mad Hatter on Batman, but for some reason I didn't get around to reading this as a child. While I expected to like it, I never realized what a joy this book would be. Carroll was a logician, so it should come as no surprise that he uses his expertise in that field to c...

    I think it was a good choice for me to reread one of my favorite childhood stories before I read the one I really wanted to: Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There.When I was a little girl I LOVED the Disney movie and, since this book has some different aspects, it is no wonder I find the movie to be better.However, it was still a really enjoyable ride everytime I read it.Everlasting quotes are the reason this book is classic, and ...

    أليس يا فتاة بعُمرِ الزهورِ ، تطيرُ أحلامُها كالطيورِ'وقد حكي السيد تشارلز دودجسون تلك الحكاية بناء علي طلب أبنة صديقه 'أليس ليديللأرضِ الجمالِ وأرض الغرائب ، ودنيا الخيالِ بلاد العجائبثم كتبها، كعالم سحري ارتجالي، لا منطقي ولامعقول..لكنه ملئ بال...

    "We're all mad here"I'm not going to insult your intelligence by giving a plot summary for this book as I think every person on the planet knows the premise. However, for the sake of completion and satisfying my OCD tendencies... Alice is a young girl who falls through a rabbit hole into a fantasy world, meeting lots of weird and peculiar characters. And that's it.Well, the Mad Hatter isn't wrong. I started this book excited at the premise of rea...

    I really enjoyed this, and being read by Michael York and a distinctive touch. Alice's Adventures in Wonderland is popularly known to many as a children's book, and Lewis Carroll admitted to writing it for the little girls of the Dean of the college he taught at. A quote from C. S. Lewis, in The Three Ways of Writing For Children (1952), "A children's story which is enjoyed only by children is a bad children's story. The good ones last, because a...
  • Tracey
    "Curiouser and curioser" said Tracey after reading this as an adult. Everyone knows the story of the little girl who followed a rabbit (who was very late) down a rabbit hole, and found herself in a land of nonsense and strange creatures, like The mad Hatter, who is stuck at a permanent tea party thanks to an argument with time (the person not actual time obviously) and The Cheshire cat , who comes and goes and often only his grin is left floating...
  • Kyriakos Sorokkou
    the authorCharles Ludwidge Dodgson to maintain his anonymity and remain immune to criticism came up with his pen name by translating his first two names into Latin 'Carolus Lodovicus' and then anglicising them to 'Lewis Carroll' a perfect example of his love for the playfulness of language, something we notice in every page of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland where a whole array of animals and eccentric characters parade throughout the seemingly ...

    Estoy enamorada de esta edición de Alicia en el país de las maravillas. Es absolutamente hermosa, con ilustraciones esplendidas. Amé profundamente haberme introducido en este mundo tan delirante. Es una historia sin una pizca de lógica pero que gracias a eso te hace pasar momentos tremendos, llenos de risas y confusión. La verdad es que hace meses que tengo el libro en mis estanterías pero no me animaba a comenzarlo porque escuché opinione...

    Eu tenho quatro cópias desse livro na minha estante. QUATRO! Só essa semana que eu decidi finalmente lê-lo de verdade. Obviamente que estou um pouco chateada que não curti tanto quanto gostaria. Sim, é divertido se você se imagina como uma criança lendo, mas falta muita coesão na história. Senti que não se conecta muito bem e as coisas acontecem tão rápido que não dá nem tempo de entender o que está acontecendo. Tive que reler algu...

    I can't believe I never read this one. I've owned a copy for years but just never got around to it. I've seen many variations of movies/cartoons on it and know the story...but just never read it for myself. It is a wonderful book. So full of imagination and strange, odd things. I have to wonder about Carroll and how the heck he came up with this so long ago. From Oxford to Wonderland, that is quite a jump.

    این کتاب برای من یادآور خیلی چیزا بود که فراموششون کرده بودم؛ ضمن اینکه یکی دو تا نکتۀ جدید هم ازش یاد گرفتمنیچه یه جمله ی جالبی داره که گفته : هر روز بیشتر به این واقعیت پی می برم که زندگی را نمی توان تحمل کرد مگر دیوانگی چاشنی آن باشدتو این کتاب یه جا...

    4 Stars.I Loved it! No wonder it's such a popular choice and so highly talked about! It's fun, whimsical, quirky and just an all around delightful read. It just made me feel good and happy like talking to an old friend. There is no disputing that this belongs in the GREAT Classics category! Believe the hype!

    English/ItalianoFirst of all, I have to say I am not a native english speaker so, please, I prefer to not be attacked, if I made any mistakes. Instead of do that, it would be nice if you corrected me, thank you :)This was my first buddy read EVER and I’m glad I had it with Cordelianne! WARNING: this review contains a very unpopular opinion, so read at your risk. You may find some ranting parts and a lot of disappointment. Seriously, I shall as...

    Çocukluğumda beni en çok etkilemiş kitap. Benim gibi pek çok başka çocuğun da dünyasını bütünüyle değiştirmiştir eminim ki.Alice, gerçek dünyadan bir kaçıştır. Bu çocuklar için gerçeğin doğasının tartışmasız ve sorgusuz kabulüne dayanan ket vurucu bir dünya görüşünden daha esnek, daha yaratıcı bir dünya görüşüne de geçişin kapısının aralanması demek.Benim için de aynen böyle oldu.Bu kitabı ok...

    1.5 Stars I really struggled to rate this. I wasn't expecting much and didn't think I'd like it. Although I don't regret reading it because I wanted to know the story before I read HeartlessThis book was really weird and I just didn't like it. Also, Alice was really annoying so I really had to push myself to carry on reading. I was waiting for when we met the Queen of Hearts becuase that was the only reason I read this. Overall, I will never pick...

    Bu nasıl muhteşem bir hayal dünyası? Nasıl harika karakterler? Delirececeğim. Ya gerçekten o kadar tatlı ki, yaşa başa katiyen bakmıyor kesinlikle her yaşa hitap ediyor kitap; farkında olmaksızın karakterlerin ses tonlarına bürünerek yüzünüzde şapşal bir gülümsemeyle okuyorsunuz kitabı. Kitap, CR listemde yıllardır duruyordu (malum arkadaşlarım özellikle adı lazım değil Deniz, Filiz ve Kübra bilir) bu kez başta...

    Tavşan deliğinden düşen bir kız, konuşan hayvanlar, insanı uzatan kekler, kısaltan içecekler, iskambil kağıtlarından askerler, kötü kraliçeyi barındıran bir dünya. Ne kadar eğlenceli değil mi ?Hayır, değil.Kitabı okumaya başladığımda dili bana çok tuhaf geldi, okurken keyif almıyordum. Türkiye İş Bankası çevirilerini her zaman çok severek okuyorum ama yine de sorun çeviri mi acaba diye düşünerek Can Yayınla...

    I read this book as part of the Dead Writers Society Literary Birthday Challenge for 2016. We read dead authors books whose birthday falls within a particular month. I will see if I have time for another author. I picked this one since it was my favorite as a child. Re-reading as an adult though I realize what a little jerk Alice was at times though.Alice chases after the White Rabbit and then falls headlong into Wonderland.Once she arrives in Wo...

    I remember reading and loving this book as a child. I identified with Alice’s point of view, lost in a world both strange and familiar. All the characters she encountered were mad and funny. There was a sense of playful and sparkling adventure. I loved the vintage illustrations by John Tenniel. I guess the charming Walt Disney adaptation also influenced my perception of the book.My impression, as I re-read Lewis Carroll’s novel now, is entire...

    "Aslında nereye gittiğim pek umrumda değil..." dedi Alice. "O zaman hangi yolu izlersen izle fark etmez" dedi kedi. "... bir yere varayım yeter" diye tamamladı Alice sözünü. "Ah bundan kesinlekle kuşkun olmasın, kesinlikle bir yere varırsın, tabi yeteri kadar yürürsen."

    Of course I have read Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll but I wanted to revisit this world with the wonderful illustrations of Camille Rose Garcia. The illustrations are kinda dark and even creepy at times which only gave this classic story a remarkable twist. If you love Alice, I recommend this illustrated novel as a must read.
