"So many out-of-the-way things had happened lately, that Alice had begun to think that very few things indeed were really impossible." --Alice in Wonderland

Alice is one of the most beloved characters of English writing. A bright and inquisitive child, one boring summer afternoon she follows a white rabbit down a rabbit-hole, at the bottom she finds herself in a bizarre world full of strange creatures, and attends a very strange tea party and croquet match. This immensely witty and unique story mixes satire and puzzles, comedy and anxiety, to provide an astute depiction of the experience of childhood.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Edition! I got the mass market paperback edition and it was exactly as expected - a nice, pocket-sized edition with original illustrations. It's a great book to add to your library, especially if you'd like a cute edition to read on your commute or travels.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice set and great price It's great that both stories are combined in one book. It is not too big and my 9 year old daughter has enjoyed reading both adventures as she is a huge Alice fan which I am pleased about as I too loved these when I was her age.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Classic!! It's an amazing children book - and even adults should read it! It gave me a hard time, because English is not my first language! But the story in itself is brilliant !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic This book is a classic! It pokes fun of Victorian morals, manners, politics, and logic. Footnotes and appendices can help those unfamiliar with Victorian history. Otherwise it's a funny, weird, and wild adventure.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Soso Alice's Adventure My first impressions of this book were that it was like reading C.S. Lewis on cheap drugs. The events are complete non sequiturs and the changes in plot are worse. It appears to be a spoiled child wandering in a world she does not understand, nor is willing to learn about - unlike Lucy in The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe who seeks to understand the local customs and circumstances. The book is very easy to read but it leaves distaste in my literary mouth. I know it is considered a classic but I just do not see it, and if I did not have to read it for school I would not have bothered to finish it. (First written as Journal Reading Notes in 1999.) Through the Looking Glass 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 4 out of 5 by from Mystifying... The delightful twisted logic that Carroll is known for challenges you to question what you already know, or what you think you know, and forces you to appreciate ways of thinking that are not always definite and logical. An utter enchantment. I strongly recommend it for people of all ages, for the layers in which it can be read range from a shallow, but no less gratifying, entertainment for children to a complex social commentary of the Victorian era. The ways to interpret the stories are endless, and uncovering and debating all of these interpretations ensures innumerable interesting conversations

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Perfect Child's Story Everyone knows this unique story by Lewis Carroll. One of the most famous stories in the English language, that anyone can read. This book takes you out of this world, and into the world of wonderland where anything can happen. Will Alice find her way out? This is a nice light read over the summer, and is enjoyed by all.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Classic! The amazing book Alice in wonderland is an outstanding story of a young girl lost in her dream. I give this book two thumbs up for it's creativity and perspective of a curious lost girl. When i was little i use to watch the movie of Alice's Adventure in Wonderland in spanish (my mother language) and it was my favourite movire. The cat the queen the flowers, everything amazed me. Now that i read the book, i am even more blown away. This book shows creativity and the world of the human mind. Awesome book that i recommend for any ages really. Maybe younger kids should just watch the movie like i did and THEN read the book.
