In a world of fantasy,

Life seen through a brand new lens,

Alice settles in freely.

Time for her to make new friends.

Let your fantasy run free.

Let it skip and hop and run.

Children, what will you now see

If you open hearts to fun?

The Rabbit-Hole

It all happened one very hot afternoon. Alice was sitting on a bench next to her sister, leaning on her arm, and wondering what she should do. She was very bored! She leaned over to look at the book her sister was reading, but there was nothing interesting there.

Books without pictures, dull, dull, dull! she thought and closed her eyes.

Suddenly, from under the bench, a White Rabbit ran out, brushing against Alice’s dress. He was dressed in a beautiful, colorful vest and was clearly in a great hurry.

Duchess, Duchess!… he panted. What will happen to me if I’m late?

At that moment, he stopped, took a watch out of his pocket, looked at its face and ran as fast as he could.

What on earth is going on? thought Alice. To see a rabbit is perfectly normal. But a talking rabbit? A well-dressed, talking rabbit? A well-dressed, talking rabbit who can apparently tell the time! Maybe I’ve had too much sun.

Without thinking, she jumped up and ran after the Rabbit. Suddenly, she found herself before a dark rabbit-hole. She did not have time to stop, let alone catch her balance, before she tumbled into it. Below her was complete darkness, and fear seized her.

Oh dear, what is happening?! she thought wildly.

It was the most extraordinary thing, but it felt as if she was falling in slow motion. Alice looked around and noticed that the walls of the shaft were not empty. In fact, maps and colorful pictures hung on them, and bolted to the walls were cupboards full of books. On the shelves were various

    Its been many years since I last read this and it was better than I remember it being and more nonsensical. I think my memory of the book had been warped by the movies (just a bit crap especially the most recent Johnny Depp one!).

    While the story is creative, it is also a lot of nonsense. Albeit is supposed to be a dream, it is rather bizarre. I find it odd that the story has such renown. I mildly recommend this book mainly for the value of being familiar with the story because it is so well known.

    I once read Alice in Wonderland when I was younger and I thought it was okay. Not amazing, but okay. I reread it now a few years later in this edition and I think it was the illustrations that did it for me. I really enjoyed the story. The pictures brought so much to the story. I would recommend this edition. 5 out of 5 stars.

    An Exercise in Insanity

    This book was insane. The adventures she had and the creatures she met...It all sounded like what a bad acid trip would be like.

    I'm honestly not sure I enjoyed it. This may require a re-read in the future.

    Alice in Wonderland vertelt het verhaal van de kleine Alice die in slaap sukkelt bij een uitstapje en in haar droom een wit konijn achterna rent door een pijp. Ze komt in een volledig andere wereld terecht en wordt geconfronteerd met de meest vreemde schepsels: eigenaardige dieren en levende kaarten, enzovoort. Allemaal zijn ze druk met zichzelf bezig en niet echt er op uit Alice beter te leren kennen. Die vraagt zichzelf trouwens geregeld af wie ze eigenlijk is. De gekste gebeurtenissen doen zich voor en de gekste teksten worden de lezer voorgeschoteld, tot Alice uiteindelijk weer ontwaakt.Achter de spiegel borduurt voort op dat thema, zelfs in een nog hogere versnelling. Alice geraakt in een spiegel en komt buiten het zichtsveld weer in een vreemde wereld terecht. Vooral de schaakfiguren beheersen hier de zaak. Er zijn andermaal tal van zonderlinge figuren. De dialogen hebben nog meer dubbele bodems dan tevoren. Maar het geheel geeft een zo mogelijk nog verwarder en daardoor ondoorgrondelijker indruk dan het vorige verhaal. Op de duur wordt het - zeker bij een lectuur voor kinderen - gewoon ontoegankelijk. Het einde is vrij abrupt.

    Dette er den originale håndskrevne version af historien "Alice's Adventures under Ground", urmanuskriptet. Den blev oversat til dansk som "Maries Hændelser i Vidunderlandet" allerede i 1875, men den var dårligt oversat og vakte ikke større begejstring. Der er et efterskrift, der fortæller bogens historie og fx at "How doth the little busy bee, improve each shining hour..." er et digt fra 1715 af Isaac Watt.Historien kender vi jo: Alice følger efter en kanin, falder ned i et hul, havner i en sal med døre, drikker af en flaske og bliver mindre, men kan nu ikke længere nå nøglen. Hun spiser af en kage, der gør hende for stor. Hun har grædt en stor vandpyt og falder selv i den sammen med en mus, en and, en dum dodo, en dværgpapegøje og en ørneunge og en masse andre dyr. Den hvide kanin dukker op igen og hun følger efter den til dens hus. Indenfor drikker hun igen en flaske og bliver kæmpestor. Peter Kanin truer med at brænde huset af, da firbenet Ole ikke kan få hende ud, men hun når at blive lille igen. Hun stikker af og møder snart efter den blå kålorm. Hun læser en underlig version af "Du er gammel, far Vilhelm" op for kålormen. Derfra går det via Filurkatten over til gartnerne, der maler hvide roser røde. Den Røde Dronning har let ved at dømme folk til døden, men Alice redder gartnerne ved at stikke dem i lommen. Dronningen spiller kroket med Alice, men snyder groft. Næsten alle bliver dømt til døden, men faktisk er det indrettet så ingen bliver henrettet. En forloren skildpadde og en grif bliver afbrudt i deres historie af en retssag, hvor Dronningen vil have først dommen og så beviserne.Netop da vågner Alice.Fremragende historie oprindeligt fortalt til Alice Liddell. Historien er både bundet til Carrolls egen tid og alligevel stadig holdbar.

    Very nicely read. Enjoyable audiobook.

    Timeless, relatable story for many young readers. Fosters and an amazing sense of imagination. Student learn that whenever they face an obstacle they can overcome it. One theme in this book is life being a puzzle. This story is similar to how a child might think. I think it would be a very good book to use in the classroom.

    Ugh. Alice is ridiculously annoying. I did not enjoy the plot of this, the poetry, the constant repetition of ideas (the shrinking and growing). None of the characters were in any way interesting. I don't understand the universal love of this book.
  • (3/5)
    The edition I read was actually an online version with the same illustrations and everything. It is a rather fun book, and is certainly far deeper than the "children's book" that it is depicted to be on its surface. I wouldn't say I loved it, but it was certainly worth finally reading the book behind a story I have heard so much about. The language twists alone made it well worth it, as there is definitely a lot of creativity there.

    As a child, I read the stories of Alice in Wonderland (and, later, Through the Looking Glass) with a sense of wonder and amusement. Alice shows that it is possible to engage with a world which makes no sense on her own terms; she is not overwrought at her lack of understanding of the improbable and bizarre happenings around her. She brings reason to bear in narrow, specific cases (such as when arguing with the Red Queen), but is not paralysed by the irrationality of general occurrence. In this, she is like all children - dealing with reality not by knowing, but by exploring and engaging. This sense of innocent inquiry creates great sympathy in the younger reader.As an adult (older, grizzled and perhaps wiser), re-reading these stories once again provokes wonder and amusement - but this time, the wonder is at the ingenuity of the author and the amusement is if anything greater. This shift in reaction is because, as an adult, I know a few things: I know that it is impossible (in general life!) for soldiers to be playing cards, for Cheshire cats to disappear from the tail and for children to shrink and grow at the slightest provocation. Knowing this increases my admiration for Lewis Carroll, as he has constructed a world where the impossible occurs, but not without its own logic.While there is nonsense, there is structure - and the impossibilities have the common feature that they are all things which might occur to an imaginative young child while daydreaming. Thus they are not simply random (which would be nowhere near so satisfying to read), they are linked and interlocked to form a thoroughly pleasing structure. The underlying structure of the poem Jabberwocky has been analysed at length in [Hoftstadter], which elicits further wonder at the interlinked meanings and senses in the work. The amusement, of course, comes from understanding more of the jokes!

    Alice's Adventures in Wonderland is the Classic nonsense tale of an English girl falling down a rabbit hole, there to encounter the strange world of absurdly anthropomorphized animals and playing cards, enigmatic messages and, well, sizing issues :-D

    A Classic is usually a novel that has become so ingrained in the collective memory or culture, that one might not be sure whether one has read it or not. The reputation of the book itself precedes the actual experience of reading it and the characters are often the prototypes of later iterations and any number of adaptations. If you've never experienced Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, or read it once before, or even if you've read it multiple times, it bears (another) reading. As familiar as many are with the tale, to actually read or hear the original, un-Disneyfied tale is a pleasure as the nuances of the language surface and fade in ephemeral logic and gently wry humor. The subtlety, whimsy and detail of Wonderland, its inhabitants and their language lends itself to repeated discoveries.

    Michael York as the narrator of this audiobook edition brings a nice range of character voices to the story, never sounded absurd himself as he renders the tale of Alice with obvious affection and a master storyteller's grace. His smooth, somewhat effete British voice evokes the romance of an afternoon spent on the Thames and brings the curiouser and curiouser world of Carroll's creation to life.

    “We’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad.” The Chesire cat to AliceWhat delightful wonderous nonsense. To spend 2 hours and 44 minutes listening to Scarlett Johansson’s joyful narration of "Alice in Wonderland" was like a breeze of fresh air for my overworked brain.“Well! I’ve often seen a cat without a grin… but a grin without a cat! It’s the most curious thing I ever saw in my life!” Is it subversive nonsense? Filled with hidden meanings? Cleverly organised and meticulously metered out nonsense? Maybe…I don’t know - overblown psychoanalytical interpretations kill the wonder of it all - and it’s original intention: The enchanted nonsense of a child’s imagination. As the forever tea party - where Alice ponders:“The Hatter’s remark seemed to have no sort of meaning in it, and yet it was certainly English.”And it’s certainly a “curious dream” I will revisit again and again. Scarlett, we have a date next year for another 2 hours and 44 minutes.

    After reading The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland, I realized I was long overdue for a look at Alice in Wonderland – and what a short little book! And quite perfect for my level of mental energy the morning after a fever (though I didn't finish it all then). Might have to read Through the Looking-Glass, too. More as background & cultural education than as entertainment, though. It's very light and easy reading, but I didn't really find it terribly engaging or interesting. Then again, I've kinda grown out of the target age-group. Still...

    A classic. Alice's Adventures in Wonderland is the first installment of this classic story. It’s one of those movies that has been depicted in film for years, and will be interesting for children to read. This curious tale of Alice encourages children to glimpse a new world full of fun and exciting things. Things most would never even think of. It begins when Alice sees a White Rabbit running across the bank wearing a vest and holding a pocket watch. She decides to go on an adventure and follow this rabbit down his hole where she falls for what seems like ages. After growing and shrinking several times, she gets through a small door which leads to a whole different world. This world includes talking animals and cards. On this adventure through Wonderland, Alice comes across many strange circumstances and in trying to be polite gets caught in some people's company that is less than desirable (like the caterpillar, the Duchess, the Pig, the Mock Turtle, and the Red Queen). Alice enjoys exploring the world she entered through the White Rabbit’s hole that is so different from her own. But Alice finds these creature lack manners and sometimes run confusing circles with their conversation. This book is great for introducing children to the fun of poetry (which there is plenty of) and how manners were extremely important to children in 1865. This is a great and interesting read for children both young and old. Details: This novel was written to interest children in grades 3-6 and is on a 5.9 reading level.

    This follows largely the same plotline as the unpublished Adventures Underground I have just read, with the welcome additions of the Cheshire cat and the Mad Hatter's tea party. Wonderful stuff, though if pushed I would say that this seems to drag a bit in one or two places (to the extent that such a minor criticism is relevant to literary nonsense) and that Underground is probably a tauter piece of writing. John Tenniel's depiction of Alice in his illustrations here has become iconic, though I thought Carroll's own original illustrations are a little more haunting. 4.5/5

    This was a lot of fun! Gleefully absurd, thick with wordplay and puns (some of which I had to go back and re-read in an English accent to "get"), and a quick, joyful little read. I highly recommend this to anyone, whether or not you've seen any of the film adaptations - I've seen most, and I was still missing out until I read this.

    First line:~ Alice was beginning to get very tired of sitting by her sister on the bank, and of having nothing to do: once or twice she had peeped into the book her sister was reading, but it had no pictiures or conversation, 'and what is the use of a book,' thought Alice 'without pictures or conversation?~I found this book intriguing and boring at the same time. I think that I have been contaminated by the movies and television shows so the book seemed too 'plain'. Not enough colour. It is one of the few times that I can say that I enjoyed the movie more than the book; usually it is the other way around.I did find that the change of topics from chapter to chapter was inconsistent but when you see that the whole thing is a dream, well, that is how dreams work isn't it? Not much connection between one thing and another, jumping from scene to scene. If I was going to read this to my children I would choose some kind of a Disney version because I think that the graphics, in this case, add a valuable dimension to the reading experience.I am glad that I read it but it will never be a re-read, unless I have a grand-child!

    I read this book but in the 1865 version. It was a great and very enjoyable. It was originally written for the entertainment of children but its wittiness and written points of view attracted adult readers as well. The nonsense in the story allows adult readers to think as a child does as well as thinking outside the box. The story is filled with different characters and personalities, which have been thought to represent the different personalities of Lewis Carroll.

    At first I thought that this was a story that I would love to read to my children. However, after reading this I am not so sure. There were times when I laughed at the child-like humor and then there were times when I was just like what? Some of the logic and the tales told in this story were hard to follow, so I am pretty sure it would be hard for children as well. I do understand the moral behind the story though. If you ever need to take a step back from stressful everyday life then this may be the story for you.

    This book is such a classic, how can you not love it! I think this book should be read to all children at some point in their lives, not just watching the movie.

    Alice in Wonderland might have been the world most reinterpreted work in every form of living history. While I love the interpretative works like ABC's Once Upon A Time, SyFy's Alice, Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland and such, unfortunately, it's one of my most hated Disney movie of all time despite it is one of a setting of Square-Enix's Kingdom Heart which I used to like playing it.

    Alice's Adventure in Wonderland started when the curious Alice who followed a rattled rabbit in waistcoat into a whole that leads to a place where she called Wonderland. She had the most curious response to her environment and tried logically to make sense of her surroundings. She met with countless of creatures of all shapes and sizes. She did however shapeshifted to various shapes and sizes from eating and drinking things in the nonsense world.

    Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (Lewis Carroll) was a mathematician and to me, it was evident that he uses applied mathematics and probabilities in his plots despite the confusion in story progressions and the deux es machina nature of the book. He added puzzles and contradicting poems and often offering questions and dialogues to an other ignorant audience. In what probably an attempt to elevate himself in a way that no one could comprehend his inner joke that I need The Annotated Alice to make sense what it is. Well, thats what I think....

    I would say the most content that you get from the book was from the characters in it. There are also a bulk of poetry and riddles that occupied the book that made the premise sounded like the "Inception" within a story. The bulk of what AiW meaningful were the multitudes of intriguing characters and unpredictable qualities of all of them which are interesting even when you see them being caricatured in every sort of ways. That is why the reinterpretation of the characters are very appealing to me.

    From the first chapter, I was surprised that I do feel similarities with myself and Alice in the book. She's curious, she actually contradicted herself like I do all the time. She sees the world as dull and she's attracted to intelligent things that when she's unable to rationalize the things that were happening, she came out with interesting solutions. For the story of a little girl, she's quite intelligent for her age. She is rational and intuitive and fearless. I guess it explained why the Disney interpretation of Alice gave me an unsubtle intense dislike because the animation seemed to fit in the perception of woman and superficial Disney princess in the 50s and not the book. I have taken a liking with the 2010's version but Alice is very similar to the ones in the animation that it came off as bland and dull despite interesting casts.

    Had the book came without its attached illustrative etching from Sir John Tenniel, one would have some problem in the settings of the book. I do find Wonderland were up to the interpretation of people who want to view it. And in my mind eyes, unlike the characters residing in it, Wonderland is much less of a vibrant and bleak country like the differences with the romance of the south and the industrialize north of England like the setting of Victorian era's "North and South" novel. In a sense the realism Carroll tried to emulate by refusing to humanize the characters and giving them an anthropomorphic qualities and comical portrayals in the illustrations. However if you think of applied mathematical in a way, what seems illogical to a rational mind is in fact dependent on the perceptions that it would have been logical in irrational beings.

    For all it tries to be, Alice in Wonderland may be short but its wealth of questions lingered in millions of readers that made the book in some ways; immortal.

    I had never read the original despite being familiar with multiple movie versions. The narration of the production I listened to was first rate, and there were definitely some humorous bits, but in the end the cleverness wore thin for me. This story is definitely full of originality.

    Alice, a young potentially schizophrenic British lass, is transported to a world of wonder upon following a white rabbit down the rabbit hole. What follows is a disjointed series of events as Alice explores Wonderland, the world of her dreams. Your reaction to this book probably varies based on where you happen to be on life's journey. A small child may view this is to be an amusing story full of talking animals and fantastical situations. Someone a little further on in their years may view this as a handbook of things not to do. For example, if there is a cup on a table with a sign that says "drink me"... don't. If there is a piece of cake next to aforementioned drink with a sign that says "eat me"... don't. Aside from Alice's somewhat poor decision making skills, this is a fun children's classic that everyone should read at least once.
  • (5/5)
    This is a book that i assumed i had read in full. I knew all about the Mad Hatter and the dormouse and the March Hare. But I hadn't read it before. What a joy it was to read it in full and learn that Alice's cat was not the Cheshire Cat but Dinah and that a caterpillar smoked a hookah. Lovely little pocket edition too.
