The Complete Alice 150th Anniversary Edition
Review of ISBN 9781447275992
The Complete Alice was published by Macmillan, the original publisher of Lewis Carroll’s Alice, to mark the 150th anniversary of the most famous children’s classic of all time.
The cover image can’t do justice to this gorgeous hardcover edition. The cover itself is richly embossed with a cream-on-white design featuring Alice in Wonderland characters, and a die-cut hole revealing an end paper which also has a hole in it to cre...more
5 Stars for Alice in Wonderland.
3 Stars Through the Looking Glass: the chapters seemed so disjointed and unrelated. Definitely not as interesting as Alice in Wonderland, either. I think I only really enjoyed the chapter with the Queens.
2 Stars Alice's Adventures Underground: it's not really a story, more like an outline for Alice in a Wonderland.
2 Stars Hunting of the Snark.
3 Stars for the average. Lewis Carroll s ...more

Do not worry, gentle reader! I have perversely decided on no spoilers in this review, despite that almost everybody has seen a movie version of these books! The plots are a little dull to describe for adults anyway except for those of us who immediate ...more

I do enjoy the tale of Alice in Wonderland. The Disney movie was one of my favorite growing up. It was so fantastic and far out there with all the talk of unbirthdays, singing flowers, oyster eating, and maniacal laughter. I've always been heavily influenced by the tale. I have only read Alice in Wonderland so Through the Looking Glass is a new tale for me, one I think that I'd prefer to have read phys...more
Alice In Wonderland - 3.5/5, Decided to listen to this one on audio as I thought it would make more sense as I was struggling to follow the story properly when reading. I was still a bit confused though, but it was still enjoyable reading the original story.
Through The Looking Glass - 4/5, I seemed to be able to follow this one a lot easier so just read this instead of listening to the audio. Some of the story still did not make sense ...more
Yes, when you read all the articles written on this book (these stories) you'll see how wonderful and beyond imagination it was (or still is). But as a story? Not so much.
I was actually bored all through the book. Alice wasn't a likable character, and her adventures were more annoying.
That's just me though.
This was a beautiful edition but sorry, I just don't get the idea of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, maybe I'm stupid or I don't know, but I don't like this silly stories.
I'm sure Lewis Carroll fell in love with a kid (pedophilia). Sorry bad joke, but really guys think about it.
Study for "Alice's Evidence", c. 1864. Wow.

Worth spending some time on! And I will. RSN....
I wonder who got the paper copy from our family library? Likely my mother's, via her mother. Hmm. It wasn't me! Darn it. ...more
In a word: Complete. Not only does the collection contain "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" and "Though the Looking-Glass...," but it also contains: a deleted chapter; the original text of the story written for the real Al ...more
Alice is a curious little girl (Not a young adult or teenager as sometimes portrayed in media) that easily gets frustrated. This is because many she meets berate and scold her for what she says or thinks. In ...more
This collection of books said that will take about 4 hours to read. I’ve been stopping every now and then to think and google of the meaning behind the lines. You see, Alice is a small girl that grows up and the famous story of her being in wonderland is just her understanding so far about the adults’ world and what is happening to her while growing up. What I didn’t think of while reading it is that “For Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, there is no direction to th ...more
Just one little commnet:
This book was written by someone who was on drugs
It didn't make any sens, it was full of rubish description, horrible characters and the story line was simply terrible. And on top of that Alice was a very spoiled, selfish snob
Waste of time!
If you never read the books but saw movies, you should give them a try. I would start with Wonderland and Looking Glass.
«Perhaps it hasn't one»
«That would be nonsense»
Not my cup of T.
Didn't like that much Oxenbury's style, 'twas too heterogeneous, between full colored and black&white characters and detailed compositions and barren images. ...more
A freebie from ghostwriter. I do prefer the original , but this is suitable for children. It keeps all the important characters and events while eliminating ideas that sidetrack.
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.
