Dear Lauren,
I am writing a novella about Wonderland: "Life in Alice's Wonderland". I'm about 2/3rd's of the way through it. I've sent a few chapters to friends and family and so far it's gotten very nice responses. Would you be interested in reading one or two of the chapters?

It may not be the most beloved children's story ever, but it may be the best known. With a cast of characters known the world over, and reproduced in every entertainment form imaginable, it's made "Alice" the one word name that everyone recognizes as Lewis Carroll's iconic character. And there is an unnerving quality about it that leaves you thinking that, just maybe, this crazy world does exist somewhere in some dimension, and that we make wake up some morning and find ourselves in the "Twiligh ...more

Comentaré brevemente (no es broma, ¿eh?) cada uno de los textos. Sigo manteniendo la calificación general de 5 estrellas porque la relectura reforzó todo aquello que ya me gustaba.

Alicia en el país de las maravillas (1865)
Esta historia es archimega conocida. Alicia es una niña que está dormitando junto a su hermana y de repente ve que un conejo blanco vestido con chaleco y un reloj en la mano/pata se mete por una madriguera. Alicia lo sigue, cae por la madriguera y empiezan sus aventuras. Los
The time has come,' the Walrus said,
To talk of many things:
Of shoes — and ships — and sealing-wax —
Of cabbages — and kings —
And why the sea is boiling hot —
And whether pigs have wings.'

(Quote from Through the Looking Glass and What Alice Found There ' written by none other than the fantastical Lewis Carroll)

As per usual, as Alice happens to be my favorite story of all time... 5, BADDA BING BADDA BOOM, golden STARS.

After all the metaphors and symbolism regarding Alice, the White Rabbit, the Mad Hatter in beaver hat, and going down the Rabbit holes, it was surreal reading the Original thing after all that but it wasn't surreal enough.

Now this is a children's book in every way and more.

Well worth the wait, didn't let down and did not disappoint in any way. It was everything I thought it would be and more. Much much more. All the hype surrounding it well justified.

Now this is living up to the expectations.
How am I supposed to explain all this? I swear Lewis Carroll was on drugs. If you asked me to make up something as wildly insane as this, I wouldn't even come close. Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass are exactly as I remembered the films. They're insane and brilliant all at once.

It was the Sylvie & Bruno books that took me the longest to get through, because I honestly had no idea what was going on at times. The basic premise is the narrator going along on his no

This is the first Barnes & Noble Leatherbound Classic book I have read, and judging by only the cover, it's absolutely astounding. Cute and pink with wonderful artwork, and pages dipped in gold which gives the pages that ''old'' vintage feeling! The first two parts of the book is of course the Alice books - I finished those in a day each, it was wonderful reliving my childhood, and also learning more about the books, as the Disney and Tim Burton movies are just mere interpretations.

Tenía muchísimas ganas de leer este libro y pensaba que podría convertirse en uno de mis favoritos, pero por desgracia no ha sido así. Aunque, en ocasiones, el autor ha conseguido hacerme sonreír con algunas de las ocurrencias de sus personajes, no he podido, o no he sabido, conectar con el universo creado por Lewis Carroll. Una pena.

This particular edition is part of Barnes & Noble's Leather-bound Classics Collection. Carroll's volume is bound by distinctive pink bonded leather, with black illustration and gold leaf embellishment; "Beautiful" is an understatement when describing this collection; it's exquisite - to say the least! These books are so precious to me. They are the epitome of what my "dream library" will contain; breath-taking editions of the classics and masterpieces. Most of the books in this particular co ...more

I decided just to read "Alice in Wonderland" and "Alice - Through the Looking Glass", and "Puzzles from Wonderland" since that's the main reason I bought this book in the first place. And in the aftermath of my thoughts I decided that the other stories in this book, I can either read later or just ignore since I don't have the motivation or desire to actually read them. I think Alice's stories were kind of whimsical, but in a generally understanding and wonderful way. I had to take a lot of brea ...more

Varsin puuduttava lukukokemus. Kokoelma sisältää vähän kaikenmoista. Ensin on tietenkin Liisa ihmemaassa jatko-osineen, sitten toinen romaanikokonaisuus eli kaksiosainen Sylvie & Bruno. Näiden jälkeen on parisataa sivua värssyjä, sitten lyhyempiä tarinoita ja lopuksi iso vuoallinen sillisalaattia.

Liisa ihmemaassa on toki jo itsessään sen verran tunnettua puppua, että ei siitä enempää. Sylvie & Bruno sen sijaan oli minulle täysin uusi tuttavuus. Romaanina se oli jotenkin hallitumpi kokona

First of all, this edition of the book is just gorgeous.

Secondly, I'm not really going to review the book per say because let's face it, Carroll is a strange yet fascinating writer whose work barely makes any sense. His writing is unintelligible most of the time, yet the stories of Alice and her adventures in Wonderland are highly acclaimed, perhaps purely because they are so original?

I don't know what to think of Lewis Carroll as a person, or as an author. All I know is that Alice's Adventure
Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

Such a strange tale. I've always been so enchanted by it though -- especially the cryptic rhymes interspersed. Are they meant to mean anything? Are the "morals" presented throughout the book to be taken seriously...or are they Carroll's idea of satirizing the moralizing books of his time period?

Alice falls into the rabbit hole with society's rules in mind. She takes the virtues and rules from school and her parents...and she finds that they don't apply. Much like

En esta reseña me centro en A través del espejo y La caza del Snark; podéis leer también mi reseña de Alicia en el país de las maravillas.

He notado un cambio en la forma de escribir del autor en A través del espejo respecto a Alicia en el país de las maravillas. Quizá el cambio pueda estar en que el primer boceto de Alicia en el país de las maravillas lo escribió por y para una niña y que A través del espejo lo escribió por su querida niña, pero para sus lectores. Es, quizá, sutil el cambio, per

I'll stick to the Disney movie. This was a bit trippy for me. Definitely a nice classic to read the original and understand the original story though.

En realidad le doy 4 estrellas a Alicia en el país de las maravillas y 3 estrellas a Alicia a través del espejo.
Me han gustado bastante. Son unos de esos libros que tengo pendientes y nunca leo porque me da una pereza extrema. Pero han sido entretenidos, divertidos y, sobre todo, un sin sentido total. Eso es lo mejor. ¿Por qué un gato que no deja de sonreír y desaparece paulatinamente? ¿O un sombrerero que lleva meses tomando el té de las seis porque el Tiempo está enfadado con él? La pregunta

Been eyeing this adorable pink & gold leatherbound edition for months. On a whim I finally walked into Barnes & Noble and bought it. When I got home that same night, I finished Alice's Adventures in a sitting. Such an easy and lovable read for me; I have many, many times before. Even as an adult I feel akin to Alice still. Happy to have this on my shelf and to dive into "Other Stories" within the next few months/years, whenever that mood strikes.

I hated this book. I loved the movie as kid, and I thought that I would like this as well, but when you read it - it's like reading the experience of a drug addict that is high.

This is silly stuff. And I loved every word of it. The puns, the word play, the jokes, the imagination all dig deep inside and remind me of all the seriousness that is nothing but construct and I had forgotten all the wonderful newness of the world. Without a doubt we take ourselves (particularly in our dotage) too seriously.

I suspect that when we read Alice all those once-upon-a-time strange things in the world are strange things again and we giggle or smile or let the thought linger for a mom

It's a strange thing, these stories. "Alice in Wonderland" and "Through the Looking Glass and What Alice Found There" are the more popular of Reverend Charles Lutwidge Dodgson's, better known as Lewis Carroll, writings.

They're definitely written for children but I do not think children of this day and age would enjoy it as much. There's a lot of mention of poetry and song and verse that only a child from 18th century England would get. But it's very fun either way. Probably best to read the sto

Along with fairy Alice!

Happy blabbering nonsense, puzzling riddles, surreal phantasms, a profound love for tea, talking rabbits, invisible fairies and a perfect understanding of how the world looks through the eyes of a child. That is the essential ingredients of Carroll's writing.

Este libro es tan profundo que creo que ni aunque me lo releyese una vez todos los años durante el resto de mi vida llegaría a desentrañar todos sus misterios. La absurdez de los relatos de Carroll es solo aparente, tal y como explica en el anexo final del libro (aunque tampoco he entendido del todo la explicación). Sin embargo a mí me ha encantado ese mundo de cosas tan absurdas pero que tampoco pueden calificarse de incongruencias porque si las piensas bien son perfectamente lógicas.

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.
