    1. It may not be the most beloved children s story ever, but it may be the best known With a cast of characters known the world over, and reproduced in every entertainment form imaginable, it s made Alice the one word name that everyone recognizes as Lewis Carroll s iconic character And there is an unnerving quality about it that leaves you thinking that, just maybe, this crazy world does exist somewhere in some dimension, and that we make wake up some morning and find ourselves in the Twilight Zon [...]


    2. Comentar brevemente no es broma, eh cada uno de los textos Sigo manteniendo la calificaci n general de 5 estrellas porque la relectura reforz todo aquello que ya me gustaba.Alicia en el pa s de las maravillas 1865 Esta historia es archimega conocida Alicia es una ni a que est dormitando junto a su hermana y de repente ve que un conejo blanco vestido con chaleco y un reloj en la mano pata se mete por una madriguera Alicia lo sigue, cae por la madriguera y empiezan sus aventuras Los seres que van [...]


    3. After all the metaphors and symbolism regarding Alice, the White Rabbit, the Mad Hatter in beaver hat, and going down the Rabbit holes, it was surreal reading the Original thing after all that but it wasn t surreal enough.Now this is a children s book in every way and Well worth the wait, didn t let down and did not disappoint in any way It was everything I thought it would be and Much much All the hype surrounding it well justified Now this is living up to the expectations There are many les [...]


    4. How am I supposed to explain all this I swear Lewis Carroll was on drugs If you asked me to make up something as wildly insane as this, I wouldn t even come close Alice s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass are exactly as I remembered the films They re insane and brilliant all at once.It was the Sylvie Bruno books that took me the longest to get through, because I honestly had no idea what was going on at times The basic premise is the narrator going along on his normal life, [...]


    5. This is the first Barnes Noble Leatherbound Classic book I have read, and judging by only the cover, it s absolutely astounding Cute and pink with wonderful artwork, and pages dipped in gold which gives the pages that old vintage feeling The first two parts of the book is of course the Alice books I finished those in a day each, it was wonderful reliving my childhood, and also learning about the books, as the Disney and Tim Burton movies are just mere interpretations I loved the books even The [...]


    6. This particular edition is part of Barnes Noble s Leather bound Classics Collection Carroll s volume is bound by distinctive pink bonded leather, with black illustration and gold leaf embellishment Beautiful is an understatement when describing this collection it s exquisite to say the least These books are so precious to me They are the epitome of what my dream library will contain breath taking editions of the classics and masterpieces Most of the books in this particular collection include th [...]


    7. I decided just to read Alice in Wonderland and Alice Through the Looking Glass , and Puzzles from Wonderland since that s the main reason I bought this book in the first place And in the aftermath of my thoughts I decided that the other stories in this book, I can either read later or just ignore since I don t have the motivation or desire to actually read them I think Alice s stories were kind of whimsical, but in a generally understanding and wonderful way I had to take a lot of breaks for thi [...]




    8. First of all, this edition of the book is just gorgeous Secondly, I m not really going to review the book per say because let s face it, Carroll is a strange yet fascinating writer whose work barely makes any sense His writing is unintelligible most of the time, yet the stories of Alice and her adventures in Wonderland are highly acclaimed, perhaps purely because they are so original I don t know what to think of Lewis Carroll as a person, or as an author All I know is that Alice s Adventure s I [...]


    9. Alice s Adventures in WonderlandSuch a strange tale I ve always been so enchanted by it though especially the cryptic rhymes interspersed Are they meant to mean anything Are the morals presented throughout the book to be taken seriouslyor are they Carroll s idea of satirizing the moralizing books of his time period Alice falls into the rabbit hole with society s rules in mind She takes the virtues and rules from school and her parentsd she finds that they don t apply Much like Robinson Crusoe, s [...]


    10. En esta rese a me centro en A trav s del espejo y La caza del Snark pod is leer tambi n mi rese a de Alicia en el pa s de las maravillas.He notado un cambio en la forma de escribir del autor en A trav s del espejo respecto a Alicia en el pa s de las maravillas Quiz el cambio pueda estar en que el primer boceto de Alicia en el pa s de las maravillas lo escribi por y para una ni a y que A trav s del espejo lo escribi por su querida ni a, pero para sus lectores Es, quiz , sutil el cambio, pero aunq [...]


    11. I ll stick to the Disney movie This was a bit trippy for me Definitely a nice classic to read the original and understand the original story though.


    12. This is my favorite book i absolutely love it and would recommend it to anyone who loves puzzles, riddles and poems.


    13. My favourite edition of my favourite story I am sat re reading Alice s Adventures in Wonderland and still smile at every page.


    14. En realidad le doy 4 estrellas a Alicia en el pa s de las maravillas y 3 estrellas a Alicia a trav s del espejo Me han gustado bastante Son unos de esos libros que tengo pendientes y nunca leo porque me da una pereza extrema Pero han sido entretenidos, divertidos y, sobre todo, un sin sentido total Eso es lo mejor Por qu un gato que no deja de sonre r y desaparece paulatinamente O un sombrerero que lleva meses tomando el t de las seis porque el Tiempo est enfadado con l La pregunta es y por qu n [...]


    15. Been eyeing this adorable pink gold leatherbound edition for months On a whim I finally walked into Barnes Noble and bought it When I got home that same night, I finished Alice s Adventures in a sitting Such an easy and lovable read for me I have many, many times before Even as an adult I feel akin to Alice still Happy to have this on my shelf and to dive into Other Stories within the next few months years, whenever that mood strikes.


    16. I hated this book I loved the movie as kid, and I thought that I would like this as well, but when you read it it s like reading the experience of a drug addict that is high.



    17. This story is about a young girl, Alice, who encounters dreamlike experiences in her own bad dream Alice winds up in a land where irregular and wacky symbolism proliferates, personality is continually shifting, and language frequently flourishes as a methods for correspondence Alice found her identity by the end of the book, from her wicked adventures in Wonderland In her fantasy adventure in Wonderland, Alice experienced emotional and physical changes, encounters various creatures, and encounte [...]


    18. I really enjoyed reading the introduction, as I knew nothing about Lewis Carroll What an interesting life he had I have finally found an introduction that is both interesting and informative Alice s Adventures in Wonderland20th 26th January 2016This is one of my favourite books Each time I read this book, it feels like the first I always get something new out of it, I don t think I ll ever be tired of reading it Alice s Adventures in Wonderland are delightfully random, laugh out loud funny and I [...]


    19. This is silly stuff And I loved every word of it The puns, the word play, the jokes, the imagination all dig deep inside and remind me of all the seriousness that is nothing but construct and I had forgotten all the wonderful newness of the world Without a doubt we take ourselves particularly in our dotage too seriously I suspect that when we read Alice all those once upon a time strange things in the world are strange things again and we giggle or smile or let the thought linger for a moment I [...]


    20. It s a strange thing, these stories Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass and What Alice Found There are the popular of Reverend Charles Lutwidge Dodgson s, better known as Lewis Carroll, writings They re definitely written for children but I do not think children of this day and age would enjoy it as much There s a lot of mention of poetry and song and verse that only a child from 18th century England would get But it s very fun either way Probably best to read the stories to the c [...]


    21. LOVE lighted eyes, that will not startAt frown of rage or malice Uplifted brow, undaunted heartReady to dine on raspberry tartAlong with fairy Alice Happy blabbering nonsense, puzzling riddles, surreal phantasms, a profound love for tea, talking rabbits, invisible fairies and a perfect understanding of how the world looks through the eyes of a child That is the essential ingredients of Carroll s writing No author has ever since made such magnificent wordplay and used such a heavy amount of absur [...]


    22. Este libro es tan profundo que creo que ni aunque me lo releyese una vez todos los a os durante el resto de mi vida llegar a a desentra ar todos sus misterios La absurdez de los relatos de Carroll es solo aparente, tal y como explica en el anexo final del libro aunque tampoco he entendido del todo la explicaci n Sin embargo a m me ha encantado ese mundo de cosas tan absurdas pero que tampoco pueden calificarse de incongruencias porque si las piensas bien son perfectamente l gicas.Bueno, es una p [...]


    23. Notable.De peque a Alicia en el pa s de las maravillas no era de mis cl sicos disney preferidos pero s que siempre me llam mucho la atenci n conocer la versi n original de Lewis Carroll.Este libro en concreto consta de tres historias Alicia en el pa s de las maravillas , A trav s del espejo y La caza del Snark Adem s de un ap ndice final con cartas que no he le do porque no me llamaban nada la atenci n, la verdad Alicia en el pa s de las maravillas ya lo hab a le do en 2011 no as el resto del li [...]


    24. One day a curious little girl named Alice follows a rabbit down a rabbit hole, and what ensues is a fantastical adventure that most people could not even dream up After a constant act of shrinking and growing Alice meets the many characters of Wonderland, a blue caterpillar smoking a hookah, who s sentences tend to go round and round like an 8 track player, all ending with Who are you She has tea with the Mad Hatter and the March Hare leaving confused than when she arrived and drinking less tea [...]


    25. Creo que me gust m s que la primera vez que los le , hace ya varios a os Hab a olvidado gran parte de lo que pasaba y tambi n las conversaciones Mi nico problema es con los poemas, no estoy acostumbrada a leerlos, por lo que me resultan algo lentos y demasiado complicados, por lo que no me he animado a leerlos en su idioma original Sin embargo, la caza del Snark me gust mucho, algunos versos me confundieron, pero fueron pocos Pens que no lo iba a disfrutar, no obstante no fue as.Me encanta Alici [...]


    26. DIOS Qu dif cil fue leer este libro, me gusto m s Alicia en el pa s de las maravillas que a trav s del espejo comencemos por eso , se que es un cl sico pero la verdad no me gusto mucho, es un libro totalmente sin sentido y a la vez con mucho sentido ya estoy sonando como el autor jajaja solamente dir que me quedo con la primer historia, y que decir de la caza del snark, me dejo totalmente confundida jajaja, le di una calificaci n de 3.5 porque soy bastante generosa.


    27. Only read the first book in this huge set, but it was quite good Probably will get around to the rest of it piecemeal Never read Lewis Carroll before and I loved his use of riddles and wordplay This will appeal to older fantasy geeks, but these crazy kids today might not like it much Never was a fan of the original animated Disney film, but the Disney Tim Burton Johnny Depp film is great.
