"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.

I think that the failure not only of Children's Literature as a whole, but of our very concept of children and the child's mind is that we think it a crime to challenge and confront that mind. Children are first protected from their culture--kept remote and safe--and then they are thrust incongruously into a world that they have been told is unsafe and unsavory; and we expected them not to blanch.

It has been my policy that the best literature for children is not a trifling thing, not a simplific

Well, if you really love this book, please do not read on! I really did not enjoy the book, and I'm a little surprised that it's considered a classic. The one thing I did enjoy was that there were many imaginative scenes - all of the different places that she went, like the tea party, the garden, etc. But, the characters were drawn very poorly - they were simply drawn, and most were just annoying (even Alice!). Most of the characters in the great "wonderland" were either cruel, mean or contrary ...more

To purge myself from the impact of a controversial book that I read recently - All the Ugly and Wonderful Things - I tried to go back in time and read something for fun. I'm glad to say the experiment was successful as the reading experience was stellar to a T. In fact something happened that didn't happen ever before.

What happened was that I enjoyed this book's poetry for once. It was a nonsensical poem but very funny.

I can't believe I haven't picked up this book until now. I watched the animated film a million times as a kid, and I've seen the Tim Burton movie, but reading the original story was such a delightful experience! WHIMSY TO THE MAX. I know it's supposed to be basically a nonsensical story (and opium-fueled apparently) but I think there's actually a lot of wisdom to be taken from it. People take life too seriously sometimes.

This book makes perfect sense if you had a misspent youth and went in for psychedelic substances. Just as Lewis Carroll undoubtedly did. Well he certainly liked opium.

If you ever tripped out getting bigger and smaller, things that half disappear in the air and inanimate objects suddenly coming to life were part of the fun of the trip.

Lewis Carroll wrote Alice as a children's fantasy, but I believe he and his friends must have had a quiet smile at no one guessing the source of his inspiration. O
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 create many hilarious logical fallacies. But what i

"Oh, you can’t help that," said the Cat: "we’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad."

First of all, this was my 200th read book this year, so YAY for me!

Second of all, even though I've watched countless adaptations of Alice, it was completely new experience to read this book (well, listen actually). If you haven't already read this book, I suggest listening to Storynory's audiobook. The narrator did an amazing job, and she really brought all those characters to life.

This book was curious and curiouser and I just don't get it. So while I admit that the Alice in Wonderland movie doesn't really make a whole lot of sense either, it pales in comparison to this coked out misadventure. I've read that it is entirely unfounded speculation that the author was on drugs when he wrote this, although if I were him I would tell people I was on drugs rather than have them believe this was the work of my sober thought process.

Hay momentos que se me han hecho un poco más cuesta arriba, pero en general me ha gustado. He disfrutado del vibrante estilo de Lewis Carroll y de si disparatada historia.

Tenía muchas ganas de por fin leer Alicia en el País de las Maravillas, ¿y de qué mejor forma que con una edición increíble? No solo por la portada, sino por las ilustraciones tan bonitas que hay en su interior. Es un estilo algo recargado, pero elegante, y encajan perfectamente con la novela.

I had been wanting to read this book for a very long time by the time I picked it up, for different reasons. Besides it being a classic, to this day I am keeping myself from watching the movie - the one with Johnny Depp - because I wanted to read the book first. This is a hard book to rate.

I couldn't resist this translation of Alice in Wonderland when I saw it going for one euro at a second-hand bokstall in Berlin, and I had to read it as soon as we got home. I'm sure it's helped improve my German; it's also introduced me to the fascinating world of Carroll translation studies. I had vaguely been aware that the subject existed, but I knew next to nothing about it. I'm still only scratching the surface, but at least I'm a little better informed.

I really enjoyed the beginning of the novel, but soon this whimsicality just grew too much for me. I didn't really understand what was happening at the trial and pretty much gave up trying to understand. Honestly, I think this is one of those rare instances where the movie is better than the book! This is a short book, though, so if you have a few hours to spare and want to read a classic, I'd recommend!

I read this book last year and love the book. I have also seen many movie and cartoon versions of the story. But, I have yet to listen to the audio version. I wanted a very quick light hearted read and happened upon the audio version narrated by Tim Gerard Reynolds. He does an amazing job narrating this wonderfully imaginative story by Lewis Carroll. He does voices for all the crazy characters and he just brought everything to life in a big, bold way. If you know the story, I suggest you try the ...more

I'll honestly never understand why so many people associate this book with gothic, dark things or with mental illnesses. I suppose that American McGee videogame helped out with that, and Go Ask Alice, and Alice in the Resident Evil franchise... anyway, this was just a very odd children's story. It's about a little girl who's sort of bratty and impatient, but she hates her sister's boring book lectures and wants to be in a place where exciting, new and vibrant things happen every day.

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 I love them all!

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.

Delightfully sumptuous and printed on heavy quality paper, the pages edged with gilt and the whole bound in cloth, this is a little treasure of a book. It is tiny, at about 13cm tall being even smaller than the "miniature" edition published in 1908.

The Reverend Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, better known by the pen name Lewis Carroll, was an English author, mathematician, logician, Anglican clergyman and 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 considered to be within the genre of literary nonsense.
