Alice in Wonderland is one of the first books i ever read and it's hard complete understand the story and this book is like a digest version for young people, some of the parts was omited even when the story itself is exactly the same that Carroll created. The good part is that this one reads so fast, i mean this also include Alice Through The Looking Glass and you can finish this graphic novel in less that 2 hours, and you have everything that is important about the story but you doesn't have s ...more

Thanks to NetGalley that sent me a copy of this graphic novel in exchange for a review!

This graphic novel version of Alice in Wonderland was really beautiful. The art was simple and really good looking, and I think the colours are just perfect for this kind of story. Every single illustration really portrayed the soul of the novel, and it felt almost like watching the old Disney version of it.
It was a speed read and a nice occasion to re-read one of my favorite classical children books and it m

Fans of Lewis Carrol's Wonderland will rejoice to see a dark, slightly insidious presentation in full colour. Wonderland has always been a dark story white washed down into something cutesy for mass consumption. In this graphic novel, it stays true to how Mr. Carrol meant it to be. The drawings are very well done. I like the panel layouts and how it flows so well from one scene to the next. The wacky stories are so well depicted by artist Erica Awano. I especially liked the explanation of the lo ...more

I received a copy of this book from Diamond Book Distributors via NetGalley in return for an honest review.

This graphic novel is about Alice from the moment she first goes down the rabbit hole all the way through to her adventures in Through the Looking Glass. If you are not aware, Alice is a young girl who follows a white rabbit down a rabbit hole, falls and finds herself in Wonderland. Wonderland is a strange and fantastical place full of many strange characters such as The Mad Hatter, The Red

[I received a copy of this book through NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review.]

An appropriate adaptation of Lewis Carroll's “Alice in Wonderlan” and “Through the Looking-Glass”. An adaptation, not a retelling: it follows Carroll's works faithfully, and offers a good approach to the original text (complete with its poems and rhymes—it includes “A Wasp in a Wig”, too, which at the time was dropped at Tenniel's request).

I really liked the artwork here. At first, I was expecting something a li

I have to admit I am greatly biased as Alice's stories are my favorite tales. The illustrations were beautiful, they reminded me of some childhood Russian fairy tales book.
I liked how the emotions of the characters surfaced abruptly and their madness was much more expressive than the regular playful silliness you see in other adaptations . It is the kind of book you can read as many times you like and get the same satisfaction out of it. Now these wonderful illustrations are a good reason to do

I've never been a fan of Alice in Wonderland for the reason that Carroll was probably on crack when he wrote it. The whole thing is such a mess, really. Moore's comic adaptation is nice and very fitting, really. The wonderland part was better than the looking glass part. The former feels like a entity as opposed to the fractal latter part. I really liked that the wig wasp story was put into the comic and the extras at the back were awesome and very interesting - classics surely need this kind of ...more

'Complete Alice in Wonderland' by Lewis Carroll, adapted by Leah Moore & John Reppion with art by Erica Awano is an ambitious graphic novel which works in spite of the challenges of the source.

The problem is that the first book, 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland,' is more narrative in nature, in spite of the loopy story. Young Alice chanses a White Rabbit down a hole. She meets a series of strange creatures and shrinks and grows and shrinks. She has a weird encounter with loyalty and makes i

I just read this off of NetGalley. I haven't read any of Alice's adventures and only have the movies as background information prior to reading this. I really liked reading this story in graphic novel format! I personally am not the biggest fan of how the original stories were written and I liked this condensed format so it wasn't as wordy. I also like all of the adventures it encompassed and I liked that I was able to note similarities and differences between this and the 3 versions of movies I ...more

Complete Alice in Wonderland includes the "Lost" Chapter as well.

It was nice to finally read the complete version of Alice in Wonderland and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Although I liked the art and it was nice to read.

Grande adapação, lembra os desenhos originais do Sir John Tenniel. Mais que uma adapção, serve como material de estudo complementar para a obra, principalmente por conter o capítulo excluído "A vespa de Peruca", tanto o texto como a adaptação gráfica. Desenhos lindos e cores bem escolhidas. Vale a pena prestar atenção aos quadros, há várias referências colocadas no plano de fundo. Recomendo!

A fun graphic version of Alice in Wonderland. While the original book is fine the addition of graphics makes it much clearer. Unlike some of the movie versions the story while truncated seems true to the book. Great graphics.

Another Alice? Do we need yet another Alice? Nice artwork by Awano, but nothing interpretively new. While reading this, I was wondering how Eric Shanower (Oz series) would have illustrated it?

This was a beautiful graphic novel but very hard to read. Graphic novels are already really choppy but the non-linearity of the story just made it impossible to follow

This review originally published in Looking For a Good Book. Rated 4.25 of 5

If you don't already know the basic story of Alice 's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There, then I'm surprised you're here reading a book review because it is one of the most basic. earliest, must-read books for readers of the English language. I'm not going to summarize the story because you should already know it.

This is just going to be a mini-mini review, because I'm pretty sure everyone is aware of the Alice in Wonderland story. You know how much I love Alice so as soon as I saw this on Netgalley I freaked out because Alice + Graphic Novel = HELL YES. I know the story off by heart so I was so excited to see the art because Wonderland is such an incredible place. I

At some point in my distant past I read Alice in Wonderland, and I memorized most of the poetry from Through The Looking Glass as a kid. But I've never read these books as an adult. Reading them in graphic novel form was an interesting experience, but I'm still not sure why these are considered literary classics.



For most of Alice in Wonderland, Alice walks around eating and drinking random items, destroying property and stealing children.



Not to mention being called an idiot or otherwise insul

I love Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland and am intrigued by most reimaginings and retellings. So I was somewhat surprised to discover this graphic novel is a pretty straight interpretation of the original books. All of the dialogue is taken verbatim from the source. Every scene and character is included, even a newly discovered "lost" chapter with an entirely new character. So while there's strictly nothing new to discover for readers familiar with the original Wonderland books, it's also ref ...more

Lech Moore, John Reppion and Erica Awano have adapted Lewis Carroll’s super famous work and pulled off a marvelous job. Ah, The wonderfully ridiculous adventures of Alice. The adapted story follows well and nothing feels like it is missing. I could see this adaptation appealing to the younger readers much more than the penguin classic version.

The only negative thing I have to say about this book is that while the pictures are extremely beautiful, they weren’t vibrant enough for me. I remember Wo

It occurred to me, when I started thinking of what to write, that I am very unqualified to write this. I mean, I can't exactly review the story, since the story is famous and well... it's Alice in Wonderland. What am I supposed to say? And I'm not exactly an artist, or someone who's an expert in comics and can recognise technical skill.

So, I guess I should start at the beginning. I requested this because... one more version of Alice in Wonderland never hurt. Plus, I had Alice in Wonderland tea-

I am a huge Alice in Wonderland nerd – I love the original story, I have a beautiful copy of the complete works of Lewis Carroll, and I love any kind of adaptation too. So obviously I jumped at the chance to review a graphic novel version.

While I enjoyed reading this, I wasn’t wowed by it. It adapts both Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass. The art style felt kind of old fashioned,

What a simply perfect graphic novel adaptation! Yes friends, this is an actual adaptation that sticks to the classic that we all know and love. No retelling, no reimagining, just adding gorgeous illustrations to an already wonderful and whimsical story. I can't tell you how giddy I was upon realizing that Alice's adventures would be intact. There's something so satisfying about seeing things that were only in your imagination, brought to life by people who understand how important they are.

If I need to say more than the title to explain what this is about. . . can’t help ya. This follows the story—both, the sequel is included—very closely; Father William actually stands on his head. (I love that poem.)
So, since most people already know the story, the point of this is the artwork. It’s done in not quite sepia but a lot of brownish shades. Some of the painted highlights include the dormouse, who really should have been a koala, considering how stoned he looks; Alice’s priceless loo

I received a free ARC copy of this book from NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review.

I have never read Alice in Wonderland, but I went in expecting to enjoy this. Honestly though, I found this fairly disappointing. I don't know if I would have enjoyed this more if I had read the book or not, but from what I know this seemed pretty close to the original story, so I think that would have been only a marginal improvement.

By biggest problem with this was the writing. There was far too much text

Oooh Alice, what else could be said about her story. There were so many versions and retellings out there. Some are original, some... not so much. Some simply try to make the story more approachable.

This graphic novel was surely lovely. It keeps to the original story. Well, it actually IS the original story, but with graphics instead of some text. Was it enjoyable? Yes. I loved the images. They are lovely, have just enough details and fit perfectly with the story. They are somewhat similar to Di

I love Alice in Wonderland. I love nonsensical, crazy things. This graphic novel adaptation did not disappoint. This adaptation stayed very true to the original story which I really appreciated. I liked how the pictures were used as an enhancement of the original story rather than a way to change the plot.

The art style is absolutely beautiful. It gave off a very Japanese/manga feel which I loved. When I first started reading, I was slightly startled by the darkness of the drawings beca
