    "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...

    English (Alice's Adventures in Wonderland) / ItalianoAlice 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 that her thoughts ...

    I should've read this one sooner But I dont want to go among mad people," Alice remarked."Oh, you cant help that," said the Cat: "were all mad here. Im mad. Youre 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, trivial and unforg...

    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.

    Well, I should like to be a little larger, sir,if you wouldnt 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 friends review on Alice's Adventures in Wonderland & Through the Looking-Glass, I searched the garden shed for an edition of Alice in Wonderland illustrated by Lisbeth Zwerger...

    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 ...

    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...

    "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...

    If I didn't already know the story and the basic plot points of Alice in Wonderland from movies, books, and other pop culture retellings, I think this book would have been very confusing. I didn't realize how short the Wonderland part of Alice's story is so, despite the bizarre writing, it was a pretty quick read. In fact, if you are really into fairy tales, I imagine this could be a one sitting book.The intro to the book mentioned this being psy...

    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.

    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 ...

    Alice In Wonderland is a particularly rich and whimsical story, with something new to discover in every reading.Alice herself is quite a character, and is able to stand up for herself against the strange and seemingly illogical world of wonderland. As she comes across each of the weird and wonderful creatures - like the White Rabbit, the Duchess and Cheshire Cat, the Caterpillar, the March Hare, Mad Hatter and Doormouse, the Gryphon and Mock Turt...

    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 ...

    Alice finds herself in a Wonderland when she follows the rabbit down the hole. There she meets a lot of characters, some helpful while others plain evil. In her Wonderland, everyone has a story and a lesson to teach. Loved the Cheshire Cat and the Hatter most as both are different, quirky and honest - making all the sense in the world with their nonsense.

    "I don't think ..." "Then you shouldn't talk."I am sure that everyone have read/watched/listened/enjoyed/hated different versions of the story of Alice going down the rabbit hole. "Everything's got a moral, if only you can find it."My favourite version is definitely the one that Neo experiences in Matrix. The movie references the book through various homages and follows eager to learn Neo into an impossible land."Curiouser and curiouser!"Just lik...

    If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn't. And contrary wise, what is, it wouldn't be. And what it wouldn't be, it would. You see? From the genre of literary nonsense comes this classic work loved by children and adults alike.As Alice slips into a dream, she finds herself chasing after a white rabbit with a waist coat and pocket watch. Apparently, he is late fo...

    "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...
  • Aishu Rehman
    I really enjoyed this classic. That I had missed while growing up. It has lots of lessons that are currently applicable to people in their everyday life. For instance, the Cheshire Cat when Alice asked him where she should go. So many people in life don't know where they're going and so they just settle on one arbitrary direction. Lewis Carroll is a master and his craft. Thank you

    I"m not sure what I just read. I don't know if this was totally brilliant or absolute nonsense. Oh well.
