    "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...

    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 ...

    English (Alice's Adventures in Wonderland) / Italiano«Alice was beginning to get very tired of sitting by her sister on the bank, and of having nothing to do: once or twice she had peeped into the book her sister was reading, but it had no pictures or conversations in it, “and what is the use of a book,” thought Alice, “ without pictures or conversations ?”»Right from the beginning and from the first assertion of Alice, we understand th...

    I should've read this one sooner “But I don’t want to go among mad people," Alice remarked."Oh, you can’t help that," said the Cat: "we’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad." I needed an adequate amount of nostalgia to guide me through this level of crazy. Little Alice fell downthe hole, bumped her headand bruised her soul! Everyone knows this story. Alice falls down the rabbit hole and into Wonderland - a place wholly unexpected, ...

    “Well, I should like to be a little larger, sir,if you wouldn’t mind,” said Alice : “ three inchesis such a wretched height to be.”“It is a very good height indeed !” said theCaterpillar angrily, rearing itself upright as itspoke (it was exactly three inches high).Today, reading a friend’s review on Alice's Adventures in Wonderland & Through the Looking-Glass, I searched the garden shed for an edition of Alice in Wonderland illust...

    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'd read Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland a few years ago; however, I just felt like picking it up again and I'm glad I did. I don't know why, but I enjoyed Alice's observations and the humor more this time. There's also something that's fun and a bit surprising when we're reading something (like Peter Pan or The Wizard of Oz) we thought we knew really well (because we've been exposed to the stories for so long even if we haven't ...

    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 ...

    "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'm still not sure whether I think Lewis Carroll created a fantastic piece of fantasy or a great big pile of nonsense. I suspect it's a combination of the two. I like some of Alice's adventures - really, how could I not? - but Wonderland was always leaning a bit towards the negative side of bizarre for me.

    You may have seen the Disney film or been to a play, but most everyone growing up in a Western European-based culture has had some contact in some form with Alice and her adventures. I cannot recommend high enough actually reading Lewis Carroll's superb book written for his daughter Alice's bedtime story. There is a lovely innocence to Alice and a startling and surprising freshness to all the creatures and characters she meets. It does sometimes ...

    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...

    [From Litli prinsinn][Original review, Aug 12 2018]My attempt to learn Icelandic just by reading continues with the Icelandic translation of Alice in Wonderland, another of my favourite books. I've now finished my first pass and am going back to the beginning, copying it out and running it through the little corpus script we're developing. I've combined the texts for the two books. This lets me get a snapshot of how familiar the vocabulary is on ...
