1.5 en realidad.
Ha sido la decepción de mi vida. Puedo llegar a entender por qué gusta, pero a mí personalmente me ha decepcionado cada palabra. No me han gustado los personajes, la trama tan tonta que tiene, la ambientación del país de las maravillas, la narrativa es demasiado infantil, en fin, es que no me ha gustado ABSOLUTAMENTE NADA. Y estoy muy apenada, porque esta edición es PRECIOSA, que es lo único que para mí se ha salvado, porque sino le hubiera puesto un cero patatero. Ya os hablaré

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

This Kindle ebook edition of all of the books that Lewis Carroll wrote for Alice contains:

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland
Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There
Alice’s Adventures Under Ground
The Nursery “Alice”
The Hunting of the Snark


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

Esta edición es una maravilla.
A parte de contar tanto con Alicia en el país de las maravillas como con Alicia a través del espejo, contiene además las cartas que Lewis Carroll escribió a los niños, un capítulo inédito de Alicia a trabés del espejo y curiosidades sobre cómo se escribió Alicia, el por qué y los diferentes procesos editoriales. Sin duda una joya que todo aquel fan de estas aventuras subterráneas debe de tener.

-Pero yo no quiero andar entre locos -observó Alicia
-Ah! no podrás evitarlo - dijo el Gato -Aquí estamos todos locos. Yo estoy loco. Tú estás loca.
- Cómo sabes que estoy loca? - dijo Alicia
-Tienes que estarlo -dijo el Gato- o no habrías acudido aquí

Leest super snel weg door de grote letters en plaatjes! een heerlijke collectie van alle Alice verhaaltjes. Voelde wel iets minder magisch aan dan eerst, maar toch fijn.

Enjoyed reading the book. I had seen many adaptations of the book in movies, however, reading this nonsensical saga was an amazing experience altogether. This is one of those books which is clearly ahead of its times!! Lewis Carroll loved children and his motto seemed to be bringing joy and smiles to them which I'm sure he's achieved and has gone beyond it, ensuring that adults reminisce about their childhood and smile as well!!

I loved the definition of lesson and the crocodile poem in the firs

Reseña de Llave al Infinito

Hoy os traigo la reseña de Alicia en el País de las Maravillas, A través del Espejo y Lo que Alicia encontró allí. Además el libro contiene información sobre la primera vez que se hizo Alicia, cómo fue, cómo se editó, cartas de Lewis Carroll… es una versión extendida por los 150 años del libro, si mal no recuerdo (Es que no lo tengo en casa ahora mismo lo tiene mi profesora para corregirme un trabajo JAJAJA). Creo que todos conocéis el cuento de Alicia, pero la verdad

2.5 stars

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

Okay so I love the story of Alice in Wonderland, a great book full of crazy and I read it quite a while ago. Again I rated it a three star, not because it's not good but I think at the time I found the language to be difficult for my age to understand. With this graphic novel it was perfectly told and above all else but I felt let down by the illustrations.

I was expecting bright, confusing colours that would make me feel giddy, but it was very much a traditional style of art with a kind of anime

Una edición de lujo para todos los amantes de Carroll. Trae consigo los dos libros de Alicia (Alicia en el país de las maravillas y Alicia a través del espejo), un capítulo extra de este último, cartas escritas del propio autor para los lectores más pequeños de este fantástico clásico y el cómo se hizo, con curiosidades sobre las primeras impresiones e ilustraciones.

To be fair, I'm pretty much always reading this book. I have a slight Lewis Carroll obsession. I actually tracked down his original Alice drawings the other day, pretty awesome! Still love the Tenniel drawings though. I will read bits of this book when I'm stressed or sad, or trying to remember a quote. Other parts I've memorized and torture my students with at random. This book always has something new for me. For as long as I live, Wonderland will always be my favorite playground.

By giving it 2 stars for "it was ok", I'm not saying that this book was bad or anything, I'm just saying that as an individual I did not enjoy reading any of the stories.
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.

2016 Reading Challenge: #1 A book at least 100 years older than you.

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.

Sinceramente creo que está es la versión más entera y más bonita de Alicia que he leído y que tengo (y no es que tenga pocas), pero aún así, "A través del espejo y lo que Alicia encontró allí" no termina de convencerme, razón por la cual no puedo darle un cinco.
Las ilustraciones sin embargo son de 10, y los cuentos y extractos adicionales del cuento original que fueron editados y sacados de las historias me han parecido una adición fantástica (además del capítulo sobre cómo se hizo Alicia, muy i

So it was one of the classic children books we read for our book club.

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!

Brett Ashton
I know a lot of people just love Alice in Wonderland and I'm certain I'm going to stand out as the oddball as far as that goes but I have to say that I just couldn't finish it. There is no existing sense of a plot at all. Just random and nonsensical dream after dream. I'll give it two stars just for the sake of creative imagination though.

Alice in Wonderland is something of a must read, a timeless classic that everyone should at least know a little bit about. Anyone young or young at heart will find a little (or a lot) of Alice in themselves and the whimsical tale itself makes for a very different, yet familiar read.

The premise needs little introduction: A young girl named Alice falls asleep and travels to another world, Wonderland, in which she encounters a wide range of odd characters before finding her way back home. The story

OK, so this was NOTHING like the movies.
Normally, people say that the other way around, but I never had the chance to read Alice's Adventures in Wonderland before, so only in 2017 - after having seen Burton's movies - did I have the opportunity to catch-up on my essential kindergarten reading.
Considering that I am a wannabe drug enthusiast, I hoped that this would be a "trippy" read. Yet, it was not. You always hear that this book was all but fueled by drugs (or maybe I always hear that due to

It is a beautiful edition, but both stories ('Alice in Wonderland' and 'Through the Looking Glass') were simply not my cup of tea. Maybe I just read it at the wrong time or maybe I did not get it, but I appreciate for what it was/is...

I recommend this particular collection for its completeness (Alice in Wonderland, Through the Looking Glass, The Hunting of the Snark, plus other small snippets here and there) and history surrounding Lewis Carrol.

This was my first time reading Alice's adventures in wonderland. It was a fun quick read and I could easily picture the scenes from the Disney movie while reading this. I will read through the looking glass at a later time.

An amazing collection of the most philosophical nonsense in the world. I had never realized how many subtle meanings there are hidden in the Alice stories and just how influential these works actually are. Definitely worth reading!

The Complete Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll and Kent David Kelly contains much more than the original stories of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass. This edition also contains two additional versions of Alice in Wonderland, which are Alice's Adventures Under Ground, which was the original first draft of Alice in Wonderland, and The Nursery Alice, which was a version written for young children. Also contained within this text is a missing chapter from Through the ...more
