Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

Lewis Carroll

Book Overview: 

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (commonly shortened to Alice in Wonderland) is a novel written by English author Charles Lutwidge Dodgson under the pseudonym Lewis Carroll. It tells the story of a girl named Alice who falls down a rabbit hole into a fantasy world populated by peculiar and anthropomorphic creatures. The tale is filled with allusions to Dodgson's friends. The tale plays with logic in ways that have given the story lasting popularity with adults as well as children. It is considered to be one of the best examples of the "literary nonsense" genre, and its narrative course and structure have been enormously influential, especially in the fantasy genre.

Book Excerpt: 
. . . went on, half to herself, as she swam lazily about in the pool, "and she sits purring so nicely by the fire, licking her paws and washing her face—and she is such a nice soft thing to nurse—and she's such a capital one for catching mice——oh, I beg your pardon!" cried Alice again, for this time the Mouse was bristling all over, and she felt certain it must be really offended. "We won't talk about her any more if you'd rather not."

"We, indeed!" cried the Mouse, who was trembling down to the end of his tail. "As if I would talk on such a subject! Our family always hated cats: nasty, low, vulgar things! Don't let me hear the name again!"

The Pool of Tears    

"I won't indeed!" said Alice, in a great hurry to change the subject of conversation. "Are you—are you fond—of—of dogs?" The Mouse did not answer, so Alice went on eagerly: "There is such a nice little dog near. . . Read More

Well, if you really love this book, please do not read on! I really did not enjoy the book, and I'm a little surprised that it's considered a classic. The one thing I did enjoy was that there were many imaginative scenes - all of the different places that she went, like the tea party, the garden,...more

This book makes perfect sense if you had a misspent youth and went in for psychedelic substances. Just as Lewis Carroll undoubtedly did. Well he certainly liked opium.

If you ever tripped out getting bigger and smaller, things that half disappear in the air and inanimate objects suddenly coming to...more

بذارین اول ریویوم این جمله رو جار بزنم که: من پیش از این آلیس در سرزمین عجایب رو نخونده بودم! :عربده:

اما درعوض زباناصلیشو خوندم، و وای! وای وای وای! چی میتونم بگم! بهقدری لذت بردم، بهقدری لذت بردم که دلم میخواست آلیس بودم! لوییس کرول انگار هیچ مانعی برا تخیلش نذاشته بود و کاملاً رها و آزاد به وقا...more

People knocking on the door of their seventh decade don't typically get their first of these things at this point in their lives. But then the Cubs had never won the World Series any other year of my life. I got caught up in the moment. And as is often the case, supply created its own demand. Whe...more

Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland is one we are all familiar with at some point in our lives. Many of us have read an abridged version, heard the basics of the tale from friends or family, or even watched cartoon versions. And when Johnny Depp's version was filmed, everyone flocked to re-read t...more

To purge myself from the impact of a controversial book that I read recently - All the Ugly and Wonderful Things - I tried to go back in time and read something for fun. I'm glad to say the experiment was successful as the reading experience was stellar to a T. In fact something happened that did...more

Go home, Alice. You're drunk.

"Oh, you can’t help that," said the Cat: "we’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad."

First of all, this was my 200th read book this year, so YAY for me!

Second of all, even though I've watched countless adaptations of Alice, it was completely new experience to read this book (well, listen actually)....more

3.5/5
I really enjoyed the beginning of the novel, but soon this whimsicality just grew too much for me. I didn't really understand what was happening at the trial and pretty much gave up trying to understand. Honestly, I think this is one of those rare instances where the movie is better than the...more

I think that the failure not only of Children's Literature as a whole, but of our very concept of children and the child's mind is that we think it a crime to challenge and confront that mind. Children are first protected from their culture--kept remote and safe--and then they are thrust incongru...more
