Rated 3 out of 5 by from Soso Though this book is not much better than Alice’s Adventures, the chess motif and theme does make the book much more interesting. With the bossy, dominant Red Queen and the quiet, kind, messy white queen, the book is a study in contrasts. The interweaving of the Nursery Rhyme Characters and the frequent fish poetry references does provide more continuity and a sense of sequential events than Alice’s first adventure. I also appreciated the linking of the cat at the beginning and end of the story. It does still feel like Carroll did way too many opium pipes in his time. (First written as Journal Reading Notes in 1999.)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll is an exciting piece of literature that is about the same Alice, from Alice in Wonderland. It is when Alice decides to go through a mirror, and on the other side she discovers a completely opposite world; maybe even more than opposite. Discover more about the other side of the mirror by reading this book. It is short and fun to read. It is good for all ages, but children will especially enjoy it.

About the Author

Born in Daresbury, England,in 1832, Charles Luthwidge Dodgson is better known by his pen mane of Lewis Carroll. He became a minister of the Church of England and a lecturer in mathematics at Christ Church College, Oxford. He was the author, under his own name, of An Elementary Treatise on Determinants (1867), Symbolic Logic (1896), and other scholarly treatises which would hardly have given him a place in English literature. Charles Dodgson might have been completely forgotten but for the work of his alter ego, Lewis Carroll. Lewis Carroll, shy in the company of adults, loved children and knew and understood the world of the imagination in which the most sensitive of them lived. So he put the little girl Alice Liddell into a dream-story and found himself famous as the author of Alice in Wonderland (1865). Through the Looking Glass followed in 1871. In recent years Carroll has been taken quite seriously as a major literary artist for adults as well. His works have come under the scrutiny of critics who have explained his permanent attractiveness in terms of existential and symbolic drama: The Alice books dramatize psychological realities in symbolic terms, being commentary on the nature of the human predicament rather than escape from it. In addition to his writing, Carroll was also a pioneering photographer, and he took many pictures of young children, especially girls, with whom he seemed to empathize.
